Gustafsson out 2 weeks

Flyers defenseman Erik Gustafsson will miss the next two weeks with a left knee sprain, general manager Paul Holmgren announced on Sunday. Gustafsson, 25, suffered the injury Saturday night in Columbus and left the game early. With Gustafsson out, the Flyers may need to rely on both Hal Gill and Andrej Meszaros on Monday against Minnesota. Gill played Saturday for the first time after sitting out 20 straight games as a healthy scratch since Nick Grossmann came down with the flu. Meszaros, 28, hasn't played since Dec. 11 in Chicago.
