The Philadelphia Flyers have made a roster move on Sunday following Saturday night’s 1-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Connor Bunnaman has been recalled to the Flyers, which has also seen David Kase demoted to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The 21-year-old Bunnaman has played four games for the Flyers this season, and will get his second shot with the team.

Bunnaman’s arrival could see him dress for Monday’s home showdown with the Boston Bruins (7 p.m., CSN) at the Wells Fargo Center. Forward Chris Stewart has been dealing with an illness, allowing Kase and now Bunnaman to get the call-ups.
Bunnaman has played in 21 games for the Phantoms this season, scoring four goals and adding one assist. He also has a -19 plus-minus with the AHL affiliate.
Alain Vigneault’s team will try to bounce back against the Bruins after a tough 1-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday. Oskar Lindblom received a huge ovation from the home fans at the WFC, while Carter Hart made 27 saves in the loss.
The Flyers have a busy week, also visiting the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday (8 p.m., NBCSN) before returning home for dates with Montreal (Thursday) and Los Angeles (Saturday).
