Hodgson discusses Kelly's injury

  Hodgson discusses Kelly's injury Much to the annoyance of Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson, the injuries are continuing to mount for his side. The Eagles have undergone an injury crisis in recent weeks and have struggled to field their strongest line-up. As a result of this, they have been cost points and have not been in great form of late. During their recent 1-1 draw against Newcastle United at Selhurst Park, Hodgson was delivered with another setback as defender Martin Kelly was forced off with a hamstring problem. Former England boss Hodgson discussed the extent of Kelly’s injury, as quoted by the Croydon Advertiser, and spoke ruefully of how the knock appears to be a muscle-related one. “It’s very annoying because we’ve worked hard to avoid muscle injuries. That came about because of a foul – he felt a twinge in his hamstring because of the foul. He was moving away from a player who was pulling him back and the movement he had to make to get forward to the ball made him tweak his hamstring.” Mamadou Sakho’s return to action has been a timely one for Palace and it seems he will be called upon in the coming weeks as Kelly looks to nurse his fresh hamstring issue. Hodgson will hope that Kelly’s issue is not one that will keep him out for a prolonged period of time. “We won’t know until tomorrow how damaging that hamstring pull is. They can be very damaging as we all know, or we might be lucky because he came off straight away and as it wasn’t a violent movement, it might be that he is not going to be out for as long as he might have been.

Elliott, the team's No. 1 goalie, suffered the injury Saturday after he made 24 saves playing through regulation and overtime against the Coyotes. However, he was hit in the mask by Arizona's Clayton Keller's stick on the follow-through during the shootout and then slumped to the ice and was taken out of the game.

The Flyers initially said Elliott suffered a lower body injury while Michal Neuvirth filled in as goalie. Neuvirth was able to secure the 4-3 win for the Flyers Saturday.

"It's pretty unfortunate what happened to (Elliott)," teammate Shayne Gostisbehere said, per the Boston Herald. "But for Neuvy to step in there pretty cold and make big saves for us was huge."

Due to Elliott's injury, the team recalled goaltender Alex Lyon from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the Flyers' AHL affiliate, to serve as a back-up for Neuvirth.

This marks the second time this season Elliott has missed time due to an injury as he missed four games from Jan. 25 - Feb. 3. Despite the setbacks, Elliott has received a majority of the starts in his first campaign with the Flyers, and he is 15-5-1 with a 2.51 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.
