Emery out with 'hip tightness'; Leighton to start tonight

Ray Emery will sit for the second straight game due to 'tightness in his left hip.' Michael Leighton will start again. Emery missed the game in Edmonton with 'general soreness' but the he was expected to be fine to play tonight. That's not the case, and it's really not reassuring either when you look at the Flyers' history of handling seemingly mild injuries that suddenly balloon into serious ones.
