from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,
He arrived at the Wells Fargo Center at his normal time last night, fully expecting to play in last night’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Devils. He kept to his normal pregame ritual. He took part in the Flyers’ pregame warmups, skating on his line with Danny Briere and newcomer Sean Couturier.
Then, van Riemsdyk was scratched from the lineup without explanation.
According to a team source, speaking to the Daily News last night on a condition of anonymity, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette was “especially critical” of van Riemsdyk’s performance on Wednesday night - despite the fact that he scored a highlight-reel goal against the Sabres - and called him out during a team meeting.
Officially, the Flyers said van Riemsdyk is “day-to-day” with a nondescript “lower-body injury.”
