Flyers forward Jeff Carter skated in today’s Flyers practice and said he will be a game-time decision for tomorrow night’s win-to-get-in matchup with the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
Carter said he felt “good” but did feel pain because “there is a screw in my foot,” and said he expects to feel pain for a few more weeks.
“I thought Jeff did fine during the practice,” general manager Paul Holmgren said. “But I think we need to see how this responds tomorrow before we make any decisions. We’ll go from there.
“The way I understand it, if he’s in any pain we need to back him off. With the screw in place, I think the chances of him [injuring it worse] are slim. We want to see how he is tomorrow.”
