Flyers send leading scorer McGinn to AHL
Tye McGinn, the Philadelphia Flyers' leading goal-scorer, was sent to the team's American Hockey League affiliate on Friday.

Tye McGinn, the Philadelphia Flyers' leading goal-scorer, was sent to the team's American Hockey League affiliate on Friday.

McGinn has a team-best three goals in four games, but the move was needed to clear space for the expected return of forward Scott Hartnell.

Hartnell is on injured reserve due to an upper-body injury sustained during a game Oct. 11 against the Phoenix Coyotes. He has missed the past four games, but it's likely he'll be in the lineup when the Flyers play at the New York Islanders on Saturday.

In five games this season Hartnell has no points, six shots on goal and a minus-2 rating.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.

— Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom in an interview with Washington Post about whether he will be able to play in 2015-16 opener
