PHILADELPHIA -- One of the two defenseman the Philadelphia Flyers recalled for their game Tuesday against the New York Rangers (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN) will get into the lineup, with Brandon Manning expected to make his season debut.
Manning, who was a plus-1 with six shots on goal in four games with the Flyers last season, likely will be paired with Kurtis Foster. Matthew Konan, also recalled, will be a scratch.
Manning will be the 12th different defenseman to see action for the Flyers this season, tying the Carolina Hurricanes and Montreal Canadiens for the most in the League.
An injury-depleted blue line saw two more players join the injury list -- Kent Huskins, who sustained a concussion during the game Monday against the Canadiens, and Bruno Gervais, who team announced Tuesday needs surgery to repair a torn stomach muscle. They join Braydon Coburn and Andrej Meszaros, who are out with shoulder injuries, and Nicklas Grossmann, who has a concussion.
Here is what the Flyers' lineup likely will look like when the puck drops:
Simon Gagne - Claude Giroux - Jakub Voracek
Matt Read - Sean Couturier - Wayne Simmonds
Danny Briere - Brayden Schenn - Scott Hartnell
Jay Rosehill - Ruslan Fedotenko - Adam Hall
Oliver Lauridsen - Luke Schenn
Kimmo Timonen - Erik Gustafsson
Kurtis Foster - Brandon Manning
Injured: Bruno Gervais (torn stomach muscle), Nicklas Grossmann (concussion), Braydon Coburn (shoulder), Andrej Meszaros (shoulder), Maxime Talbot (leg), Zac Rinaldo (ankle), Jody Shelley (hip)
Scratched: Matthew Konan, Mike Knuble
