BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired high-scoring forward Vaclav Prospal in a trade with Tampa Bay.

In exchange, the Flyers dealt the Lightning minor-league defenseman Alexandre Picard and a conditional pick in the 2009 draft. The move came a day before the NHL trade deadline. The move was announced immediately after the Flyers ended a 10-game losing skid with a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Philadelphia has been depleted by injuries after losing Mike Richards, who tore a hamstring last weekend. They're also minus star forward Simon Gagne (concussion) and defenseman Derian Hatcher (knee).
