Flyers' Gustafsson leaves with injury
Flyers defenseman Erik Gustafsson suffered a lower-body injury in the second period and left Philadelphia's game against the Washington Capitals

PHILADELPHIA -- Flyers defenseman Erik Gustafsson suffered a lower-body injury in the second period and left Philadelphia's game against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night. The Flyers announced during the second intermission that he will not return.

Gustafsson blocked a shot from Eric Fehr seven minutes into the game and then left the ice. He did not return.

He was playing in his seventh consecutive game since being recalled from Adirondack of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
