The Flyers are going from hilarious to sad... while getting creamed 7-nil last night by the Capitals, both Steve Downie & Vincent Lecavalier were injured during fights. This was Downie's first game with the Flyers and I guess his owners can take consolation in his 17 PIMs but he left with a concussion and went to hospital. Lecavalier suffered facial injuries at the hands of noted pugilist Steven Oleksy. I'd consider both out indefinitely but it sounds like Lecavalier shouldn't be out too long.
Jeff Carter has been IR'd with a LBI injury. That's not going to help him get out of a one goal in 10 game funk.
Johan Franzen returned last night after missing Wednesday's game with an undisclosed injury but he couldn't make it through last night's game due to an illness and was re-shelfed. He's likely out for tonight's game.
Saturday looks like a big day for returns as Dan Boyle (concussion), Max Pacioretty (hamstring) and Nikolai Kulemin (ankle) should play today and Cory Schneider (LBI) is likely to dress as Marty's backup.
