Saturday's Injury Updates - Brassard, Cammalleri, Wisniewski...

Derick Brassard was placed on the IR with an injured hand.  He's expected to miss 2-3 weeks.

Ed Jovanovski has been placed on the IR with an UBI.  No other details released yet but the IR isn't a foreign spot for Jovo-cop.

Mikko Koivu scored a goal but then left with a hand injury after playing just 2:15 last nighty.  He'll be re-evaluated today.

Mike Richards didn't play last night because he has the flu.  Slap a band-aid on it and get out there Richards!  The Flyers play next on Sunday. 

Mike Cammalleri could be back as soon as Sunday according to Coach Jacques Martin.  Those of you in weekly leagues will get a chance to have a look before you decide to activate or not.

Carlo Colaiacovo left the game early after receiving a big hit in the third.  No word if he'll miss any time.

James Wisniewski's face lacerations shouldn't keep him out of the lineup long.  He might be ready to go on Sunday. Some earlier reports had him out for three weeks.

Valtteri Filppula skated yesterday and is on track to return sometime next week.  It will be interesting to see who (Jiri Hudler?) gets dropped to the third line when Filppula returns.

Anders Lindback has the flu and won't be available to backup tonight.

We have a timeline on Kevin Bieksa .  Expect the blueliner to miss about three weeks with his injury.

Returning to action last night : Ville Leino, Marek Zidlicky, Bryan McCabe, Anton Volchenkov (from suspension), Steve Bernier
