Shelley, Bartulis likely out

TAMPA -- Forward Jody Shelley and defenseman Oskars Bartulis are unlikely to play tonight when the Flyers resume their schedule following the All-Star break against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Neither player was on the ice for the morning skate and they did not practice yesterday. They are battling the flu but are on the trip in Tampa.

It appears Dan Carcillo and James van Riemsdyk will play instead. JVR is coming back from lower-body. Carcillo has played the last two games.
