Gustafsson out with sprained left knee

The strange twists and turns on the injury front keep on coming for the Flyers in the first half of the season.

On Sunday, the club announced that defenseman Erik Gustafsson will be out up to two weeks with a left knee sprain.

The fourth-year pro apparently suffered the injury during the deciding third-period surge by Columbus in the Jackets' 6-3 win on Saturday night.

Look for more Hal Gill, or perhaps more Oliver Lauridsen in Gus' absence as the Orange and Black prepare to embark on a six-game holiday road swing. Gill returned from a 20-game banishment after Nick Grossman was a late scratch due to the flu.
