Flyers' Huskins leaves game with concussion

MONTREALPhiladelphia Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins left Monday's game against the Montreal Canadiens with what the team is reporting to be a concussion after taking a hit from Montreal forward Ryan White.

At 6:11 of the first period, White hit Huskins directly in the jaw with a glancing blow with his shoulder, sending Husking to the Flyers' dressing room under his own power.

White was immediately challenged by Flyers defenseman Kurtis Foster, and he was assessed a major penalty for a hit to the head, a major fighting and a match penalty.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
