The injury bug has bitten the Philadelphia Flyers' top two netminders.
Brian Elliott will not dress Monday night in a road game against the Arizona Coyotes after being hurt in a collision with teammate Travis Konecny in practice on Sunday, according to NHL.com's Adam Kimelman.
The Flyers also placed backup goalie Michal Neuvirth on injured reserve Monday in a move retroactive to Oct. 30. He can't play Monday but could return as soon as Thursday, when Philadelphia is scheduled to play Arizona again, this time at home.
Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said on Monday that he thinks Neuvirth is about four days away from returning, according to the Courier-Post's Dave Isaac.
Philadelphia recalled Alex Lyon from its AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, in a corresponding move.
Calvin Pickard is expected to start Monday night. He gave up four goals on 35 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks on Saturday and has an .851 save percentage across four appearances this season.
The Flyers have the worst save percentage in the NHL so far during the 2018-19 season, according to Hockey Reference.
