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 think everybody wanted the puck tonight. Everybody wanted to be part of the solution and it reflected on the way we played. It's tiring when you have to chase the puck but tonight was one of those nights where everyone really wanted to make a play and wanted to have an impact on the game.
