The Flyers 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night came with a cost — captain Chris Pronger took a stick to the eye and could miss around 2-3 weeks. It was a horrible scene, and Pronger’s screams on the ice were blood chilling.
The Flyers are optimistic that Pronger will be OK but it’s just too early to tell. This team goes as Pronger goes, so the area’s collective breath will be held like a pouting three year old until Pronger is cleared to return.
Flyers general manager says Pronger plans to wear a visor upon his return. Uh, yeah. Good idea.

His screams on tv were pretty scary… My wife couldn’t watch the replay on Tivo.

Its not just us folks. You can see it even in the players on ice expressions. Our defense is horrible. I really think Walker is better than Lilja. These lines need to be set here soon or its going to be a long year.

Hockey fights are awesome so I’m starting this rolling thread of Flyers fights for this year. I’ll add the fights after the game. Hopefully I won’t get lazy and give up half way through the year.
