Flyers Hartnell, Lecavalier each out at least a week
The Philadelphia Flyers will be without top-six forwards Scott Hartnell and Vincent Lecavalier for at least a week after each was injured Friday.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers will be without top-six forwards Scott Hartnell and Vincent Lecavalier for at least a week after each was injured during the Flyers' 2-1 loss Friday to the visiting Phoenix Coyotes.

"Scott has an upper-body injury, probably going to keep him out for at least a week," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said. "We will know better [Saturday]. Vinny's is a lower-body issue; he's probably going to be out at least a week as well and we will know more [Saturday] on both guys once we have further evaluation."

Holmgren said each player would remain in Philadelphia to have an MRI exam Saturday. The Flyers play Saturday at the Detroit Red Wings.

Hartnell left the game Friday with 6:48 remaining in the first period and did not return. He had one shot on four shifts totaling 3:28. He has no points and a minus-2 rating in five games but has been a fixture alongside Claude Giroux on the top line.

Lecavalier had three shots on goal in 12:43 of ice time. He did not come out for the start of the third period. He has a goal and two assists in five games, and his three points are tied for the team lead.

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
