Kubina out, Manning in for Flyers

PHILADELPHIA -- Defenseman Brandon Manning will become the sixth Flyers player to make his NHL debut this season when he plays Thursday against the Florida Panthers.

Manning replaces Pavel Kubina, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Kubina played 20:17 on Tuesday against Detroit, but in the game before that, Sunday against the Capitals, he missed time after being hit in the face by a puck.

The Flyers already are missing veteran defensemen Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros indefinitely due to lower-body injuries.

Kubina has two assists in seven games since the Flyers acquired him from the Tampa Bay Lightning last month.

Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.
