The Flyers potential playoff hopes may have suffered a major blow.
In just his second game back from injury, Sean Couturier left Thursday's 6-3 Flyers win in Nashville and did not return. On Friday, the update on the forward could not have been worse.
Couturier will be out approximately four weeks with a lower-body injury, GM Ron Hextall announced. The Flyers have recalled Nick Cousins from the Phantoms to fill the roster spot.
The Flyers are 21-12-7 with Couturier in the lineup and just 2-6-1 without him.
