Braydon Coburn’s return to the Flyers’ lineup will have to wait until at least Tuesday in Chicago.
Coach Craig Berube said Saturday at the morning skate in American Airlines Center that the veteran defenseman still doesn’t feel confident and won’t play tonight against the Stars.

This in from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, an interesting interview with Oilers GM Craig MacTavish that the Oilers are looking for a top defenceman, and Spector’s own contention that Philadelphia’s Braydon Coburn might be the target.
MacTavish told Spec that the Oilers can take on some salary in a trade and are looking for a puck-moving d-man. Spec then wrote: “Watch for Edmonton...
Braydon Coburn broke a tie early in the third period, and Steve Mason made the lead stand up as the Philadelphia Flyers beat the New York Rangers 2-1 on Thursday night for their second win of the season.
