The Philadelphia Flyers host the Washington Capitals tonight and the call up they made earlier today now makes more sense.
General manager Chuck Fletcher called up defenseman Mark Friedman while sending down Andy Andreoff.
Many believed that the call up was because Philip Myers didn't look so good recently, however it's because another key defenseman is injured.
Just a day after it was announced that Justin Braun would be sidelined until at least after the All-Star Game, they've just lost another one.
Shayne Gostisbehere had an MRI down on his knee and won't be playing tonight and his status going forward is in question.
Ghost had MRI this morning on knee. Won't play tonight. Happened late it the game last night.
