Ross and Powe recalled to practice with Flyers

The Flyers appear to have been hit with the flu bug, to the point where they've recalled Jared Ross and Darroll Powe to practice with the team.

Here's the quote from the Flyers' PR Blog.

Thursday, October 23

2:04 p.m.
The Philadelphia Flyers were back to work on Thursday morning at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone with an 11:00 a.m. practice today.

Still off the ice was Flyers left wing Simon Gagne, trying to recover from the flu that kept him out of last night's 7-6 shootout loss to San Jose (Antero Niittymaki suffered from the bug in Denver last week). John Stevens said after practice that he is "hopeful" for Gagne to get back in time for tomorrow night's game in New Jersey against the Devils (7:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet). Gagne has four goals and one assist in five games this season.

His linemate, Danny Briere, also did not skate and is day-to-day with a lower body injury. Briere leads the team with seven points (3g, 4a).

Jared Ross and Darroll Powe were emergency recalls from the Phantoms and both skated with the Flyers today.

All I can say is, "Kick butt while you're with the big guys, set yourselves up as good choices for a longer-term recall, and don't let any of the flu-ridden guys breathe germs on you!". ;) That's all the Phantoms need is to cross-pollinate the locker rooms with whatever flu has put some Flyers out of commission.
