Thoresen Keeps Nuts Intact

Saturday, April 12, 2008 ·

After a huge scare last night, it looks like Patrick Thoresen will be able to return to the ice for game 2 on Sunday versus Washington.

He brought a whole new meaning to "balls to the wall" that is after he blocked Mike Green's slap shot and took it to the groin. Referee's allowed play to continue and Washington scored with the Flyers technically "short handed."

After laying on the ice for a few minutes, Thoreson was helped off the ice. He was taken to the hospital and after an ultra-sound, nothing seemed torn or broken.

“He’s now back at the hotel just resting up. As far as his status, it’s going to come down to how he feels, but he’s a possibility for the game tomorrow,” Paul Holmgren said. “Obviously we’re all thankful it’s not more serious than it is.”

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
