Flyers lose Voracek, Jagr to injuries
Philadelphia forwards Jakub Voracek and Jaromir Jagr both left Tuesday's game against Detroit in the second period with injuries.

Philadelphia forwards Jakub Voracek and Jaromir Jagr both left Tuesday's game against Detroit in the second period with injuries.

Voracek skated off after a thunderous second-period hit by Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall just inside the Flyers' blue line. Voracek was reaching for the puck with his head down, and Kronwall flattened him. He stayed on his knees until the next whistle, needed help to get to the bench and left for the locker room. Voracek did not come out for the third period; the Flyers said after the game that he had stitches in his upper and lower mouth.

Jagr left with what the Flyers said afterward was a hip injury.

The team said both players will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. The Flyers, who beat the Red Wings 3-2, are off until hosting Florida on Thursday.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.

— Lightning forward J.T. Brown after his first Media Day experience on Tuesday in preparation of Game 1 on Wednesday
