Flynn (lower body) will return to action Saturday against the Lightning. Flynn has been out since Feb. 12 with a lower-body injury, but is apparently feeling well enough to return to the Canadiens' lineup just in time for the final game of the regular season. The 27-year-old forward is expected to slot into a bottom-six role Saturday against Tampa Bay, skating alongside Torrey Mitchell and Paul Byron on Montreal's fourth line.
Flynn will miss 6-to-8 weeks with a lower-body injury, TSN's John Lu reports. The injury is apparently quite serious for Flynn, but Flynn is averaging less than 12 minutes of ice time per game, so this shouldn't be a massive blow for the Habs. Look for Max Pacioretty and Thomas Fleischmann to see some extra ice time on the left wing while Flynn is out.
Flynn will not return to Tuesday's game against the Lightning due to a lower-body injury. Flynn left Tuesday's tilt after just 9:27 of ice time. The severity of the injury is unclear at this point, and the 27-year-old center can be considered day-to-day until more information becomes available. Flynn's next chance to return will come Friday when Montreal plays at Buffalo. He has tallied four goals and 6 assists through 54 games with the Canadiens this season.
Flynn scored a short-handed goal in Thursday night's 3-2 loss to Washington. It was just the third goal of the season for Flynn, the fourth-liner who had one shot on goal in 9:13 of ice time.
Flynn scored a goal and had five shots in Wednesday night's 4-3 shootout loss to the Penguins. It was his first point in six games. After a brief spell skating with the second line, Flynn is back primarily on the fourth line.
