Flyers making push for Morris

   I'm att he Skate Zone in Voorhees, trade headquarters, where Flyers general manager will meet with the media shortly.

   With a little less than a half hour until the trade dealine ends, the Flyers are still pursuing Phoenix defenseman Derek Morris. Morris, 30, makes $3.95 million and can be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

   The Flyers will have to clear cap space to get him.

    As far as a three-way deal that would send Marty Biron from Phoenix to Buffalo, forget about it _ though Biron could still get dealt. It looks unlikley, though.

    Buffalo filled its need for a goalie by acquiring Mikael Tellqvist from Phoenix for a fourth-round pick in the 2010 draft.

    Tellqvist, 29, is 7-5-1 with a 2.86 goals-against average and .906 save percentage in 15 games as Ilya Bryzgalov's backup. A seven-year veteran, Tellqvist is 43-40-8 with two ties in 107 games with the Maple Leafs and Coyotes. He has a 3.04 GAA and .897 save percentage with six shutouts.

 Tellqvist will split time with Patrick Lalime while starter Ryan Miller recovers from a high ankle sprain.

   Some of the Flyers' Eastern Conference opponents got better. Pittsburgh picked up Bill Guerin and Boston acquired Mark Recchi.
