Flyers fans, your Sunday just got frustrating: Andreas Lilja’s had hip surgery, is out for 4 months

Philadelphia Flyers fans, it’s pouring in terms of injuries to your blueline. With Chris Pronger sidelined indefinitely with post-concussion symptoms and Andrej Meszaros out for at least a couple of months with an Achilles tendon injury that required surgery, things looked a little shaky, and now they look shakier: according to Helsinborgs Dagblad’s Linus Ahlin, Andreas Lilja has had surgery to correct a degenerative hip injury, and he’s going to be out for four months.

Seriously, I was only half-joking on wanting a lockout on the news for Meszaros but with this I may just have to really be pulling for a lockout.

As if Lilja was in the Flyers plans.  Heard Homer was going to send him to Detroit for a bag of pucks.
