4:50 p.m.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced that defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere will be out of the lineup tonight due to an upper-body injury.

He is considered day-to-day.

Gostisbehere comes out of the lineup while currently riding a four-game point streak with four assists, and points in five of his last six contests. He has 16 points (4g-12a) through 29 games so far this year, which is tied for the lead on the team's defense along with Mark Streit, while also leading the Flyers in average time-on-ice per game at 20:30.


Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol also confirmed that goaltender Anthony Stolarz will get his second career start as the club is coming off another weekend of games on back-to-back days.

Stolarz stopped 29 of 32 shots in his NHL debut in the Flyers' 5-3 win over the Calgary Flames on Nov. 27. The win was the first in the team's current eight-game winning streak.
