The Flyers hope they don’t get injured when they go to Boston.
In their fourth game of the season, the Flyers on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center saw two more players suffering apparent injuries.
Defenseman Philip Myers did not come out with the Flyers for the second time. With just two minutes left in the opening frame, on an investigation Myers Sabers came in with defenseman Jake McCabe. Myers was on the ice shortly after the play, but did not return to the bench after the first intermission.
Morgan Frost, who entered the lineup on Monday for the injured Sean Coutier (Costochondral Separation), cut the ice with less than five minutes left in the second period. The director of sports medicine, Jim McCrossin, turned to the 21-year-old center as he slowly made his way to the tunnel in the dressing room, the rest of the space where he stayed. The Sabers took an awkward hit from McCabe in the back of the net before Frost exited.
Both Myers and Frost did not return to the bench at the start of the third period. The team did not have an immediate update on any of the players.
Shayne Gostisbehere missed the first four matches of the Flyers due to the COVID protocol. Mark Freedman is the eighth defenseman of the Flyers. Connor Boonman is currently in addition to the Flyers and can fill in the center if needed.
The Flyers play the Bruins on Thursdays and Saturdays in Boston.
