Coburn in, Jones out; Flyers try to end Detroit streak

Braydon Coburn is in, Randy Jones is out. That’s the good news/bad news scenario for the Flyers’ defensemen. After reviewing the video today, the NHL did not suspend Coburn, who had claimed his high-sticking violation of the Rangers’ Nik Antroprov Sunday was in self-defense. But Jones, who sat out the last half of Sunday’s third period because of a hip/groin injury, will miss a handful of games. "In speaking with the trainers, we are probably looking at a week to a week and a half,” said Jones, when asked how long he expected to be sidelined. To replace Jones, the Flyers recalled defenseman Danny Syvret, 23, under emergency conditions from their AHL affiliate, the Phantoms. Syvret, an AHL all-star selection this season, has 11 goals and 37 assists and 42 penalty minutes in 65 games with the Phantoms. In 26 career NHL games with Edmonton, Syvret had one assist and 12 penalty minutes. The Flyers acquired him from the Oilers for forward Ryan Potulny on June 6, 2008.

   On Tuesday, the Flyers have a gargantuan challenge as they try to end a winless streak in Detroit that dates back to 1988. Since then, the Flyers are 0-13-2 in the Motor City.

    It is the longest current winless streak in the NHL.

    The defending Stanley Cup champion Red Wings lead the league with 101 points.

    Flyers winger Scott Hartnell is excited to face a Western Conference team.

    "Any time you play a team out West that you don't see very often and is having the success they're having, we want to play our best game and see where we match up," said Hartnell, adding that the Flyers need to play a physical game to offset the Red Wings' puck-controlling skills. "We have to hit them and take the time and space away and play Flyers hockey."
