Manning, Lauridsen bound for Phantoms after Pens game


This is precisely the benefit of having your AHL team close to home again.

Brandon Manning and Oliver Lauridsen were called up from Lehigh Valley last night to replace the injured Carlo Colaiacovo and Nick Schultz. They'll head back after the game play for the Phantoms on Wednesday night, since the Flyers are off due to the NHL All-Star break. They'll play 5 games in 6 days when all's said and done.

This would be a lot harder to pull off if the Phantoms were still in the Adirondacks.
