On The Shelf
With the injuries to center Jeff Carter and winger Simon Gagne, the Flyers are losing major firepower. Carter has led the team in goals the past two seasons (46 and 33) and Gagne is their active leader in career goals (259). Both players underwent foot surgery last week and are not expected to play in the second round of the playoffs. The Flyers literally shot themselves in the foot this time.

Flyers winger Ian Laperriere made a Quintin Laing-type play by blocking a shot with his face. He is likely gone for the remainder of the playoffs. He was one of their best penalty killers, something Philly desperately needs against the Capitals.
