Flyers loan three forwards to Phantoms

Whether it has something to do with the long, four-day All-Star break or whether it could mean that one Flyer forward may be returning to the lineup after the break, the Flyers made a couple of roster moves today.
Tommy Sestito, Ben Holmstrom and Harry Zolnierczyk were sent back to the Phantoms.
"All three can benefit playing bigger minutes," general manager Paul Holmgren told CSNPhilly.com.
It's possible Zac Rinaldo and one other player, could rejoin the Flyers next week. Jaromir Jagr has a groin pull and James van Riemsdyk, along with Danny Briere, both have concussions.
Zolnierczyk has been here most of the season. Among the three sent down, he is most likely to return next week.
"Too soon to say on any of our injured guys," Holmgren said.E-mail Tim Panaccio at email@example.com
