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.
It seems like I'm kind of making it a little difficult on myself here the last two games.
