Orange and Black turning Black and Blue

On the Flyers website, Paul Holmgren updated all the injury news regarding the first-place Flyers. It is quite the laundry list.

Jofferey Lupul - has an abdominal pull and will likely be out at least 2 weeks. He has been placed on injured reserve. The injury to Lupul is huge because the Hartnell-Carter-Lupul line had developed such great chemistry.

Simon Gagne - still day-to-day with a shoulder injury. He might be able to play tomorrow.

Arron Asham - still day-to-day and may be available tomorrow or Thursday night.

Darroll Powe - may have a severe hip issue, but they are only listing him as day-to-day for the time being. He's likely out tomorrow.

Claude Giroux - has a mild concussion and is listed as day-to-day. Because he is one of the Flyers top prospects, I would not expect him to be rushed back anytime soon. Also, I hope someone puts Corey Perry's face into the glass.

Josh Gratton - has a stomach issue and is listed as day-to-day. They're hopeful he can play tomorrow. Gratton has played well as of late, even scoring his first goal with the Flyers recently.

Jon Kalinski - he's out a least a couple of weeks. He's currently in the hospital after a surgery procedure done because of a contusion on his thigh.

Daniel Briere - Briere feels that he is still a week or two away from game action.

If you can't count, the Flyers currently have 8 forwards injured. Put it this way, you dress 12 forwards.

Also, the injury bug doesn't stop there. Antero Niittymaki is also injured and will likely be out 7 to 10 days with a lower body injury.

Don't forget defenseman Ryan Parent too who is currently conditioning and will likely remain with the Philadelphia Phantoms this season. Forward Andreas Nodl and goaltender Scott Munroe were called up to the Flyers.


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.
