Lilja, Gus in Flyers' lineup; Timonen's streak ends

WASHINGTON _  Defensemen Erik Gustafsson and Andreas Lilja will be paired together Sunday night when the Flyers play in Washington.

Gustafsson was recalled from Adirondack earlier Sunday. Lilja hasn’t played since Feb. 16.

Kimmo Timonen, who had played in 248 straight games, and Andrej Meszaros were sidelined with lower-body injuries, according to GM Paul Holmgren. They are out indefinitely, he said.

On Saturday, Timonen and Braydon Coburn missed practice, and Meszaros left practice early. Afterward, Holmgren said all three had “maintenance” days, implying there was nothing wrong with them.

That, obviously, was not the case.

Holmgren declined talking to reporters Sunday about the players' injuries and issued a terse statement through the team's PR department.

The Flyers will be aiming for their first two-game winning streak since Jan. 10-12.
