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

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
