Flyers Lose Hartnell And Lecavalier For At Least A Week Due To Injuries

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

Now, the Flyers will be without first-line winger Hartnell (upper-body injury) and Lecavalier (lower-body injury), who has been one of their more consistent players to start. Both players will be out "at least a week," according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Both Hartnell and Lecavalier will need MRIs to further investigate their injuries. Holmgren said more information will be available today.

Replays were inconclusive as to exactly what happened to either player. Hartnell left after the first period. Lecavalier took his last shift with 48 seconds remaining in the second period.

"I didn't see what happened at all," Berube said.
