Flyers' flu update

Two flu-stricken Flyers returned to the ice for Thursday's practice in Voorhees, but the team will still be shorthanded for Friday's game in Buffalo against the surprising Sabres. Five players missed practice Wednesday because of the flu. Of that group, Dan Carillo and Arron Asham returned Thursday, while defenseman Matt Carle remained in bed with the flu. Danny Briere and Ryan Parent, each of whom were ill Wednesday, also missed yesterday’s practice, but coach John Stevens said it was because of their injuries and that they had recovered from the flu. Parent (groin) and Briere (quad) will not play Friday. Stevens said he expects Carle _ who is off to an outstanding start _ to be in Friday's lineup. If Carle is able to play, the Flyers will not have to use a defensive callup to play against the Sabres. Danny Syvret, who has been practicing despite flu-like symptoms, and Ole Kristian-Tollefsen are slated to be the third defensive pairing.
