PHILADELPHIA -- Kevin Marshall and Marc-Andre Bourdon have been linked together since beginning their professional careers with the Adirondack Phantoms three seasons ago.

Monday they made their surprise NHL debut with the Philadelphia Flyers in a 4-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes at the Wells Fargo Center.

The two were unexpectedly recalled Monday afternoon after Flyers defensemen Chris Pronger and Brayden Coburn were kept out of the lineup by illness and injury, respectively.

Marshall, drafted in the third round in 2007, is the leader in games played for the Adirondack Phantoms with 168. Bourdon, a third-round pick in 2008, has played 121 games with the Phantoms.

Bourdon played 15:42 and was plus-1. He also took a penalty. Marshall played 14:11 and was minus-1.

While those two played adequately, the rest of the game didn't go the Flyers' way.

Alexei Ponikarovsky had two goals and an assist and Chad LaRose had a goal and two assists for Carolona. Jeff Skinner also scored and Cam Ward made 30 saves for Carolina, which got its first victory in Philadelphia since Nov. 28, 2008. Jussi Jokinen added two assists for the Hurricanes. James van Riemsdyk and Matt Read scored for the Flyers, who have lost two in a row.

The Flyers' moves caused a flurry of activity throughout the organization.

The Phantoms recalled defenseman Cullen Eddy from Greenville of the ECHL late Monday night. Eddy, who played two games with the Phantoms earlier this season, has 11 points in 12 games with the Road Warriors. He played 47 games with the Phantoms last season.

To make room for Marshall and Bourdon under the salary cap, the Flyers placed Erik Gustafsson on long-term injury reserve and sent Harry Zolnierczyk to the Trenton Titans. Zolnierczyk is expected to rejoin the Flyers quickly, which is why he was kept in New Jersey rather than sent to Adirondack.
