The Flyers recall Phantoms defenseman Brandon Manning


Just two hours before puck drop in Allentown, the Flyers recall Phantoms all-star Brandon Manning. He will not be available to play tonight in Lehigh Valley, and will join the Flyers on Sunday in New Jersey. It is unclear who Manning will be replacing-- Michael Del Zotto went to the locker room after blocking a shot during Saturday's match against Boston, but later returned to the game. Nicklas Grossmann's upper body injury could also be a factor in the call up if his injury will sideline him longer than anticipated.
