Carter skates; Flyers injury updates

Carter skates; Flyers injury updates

Jeff Carter skated on Tuesday morning, reportedly for approximately 10 minutes, for the first time since sustaining a knee injury in Game 4 against Buffalo back on April 20.

But the Flyers have gone into a complete blackout mode when it comes to updates on injuries.

General manager Paul Holmgren said Chris Pronger (undisclosed), Andreas Nodl (eye), Michael Leighton (back) and Carter all remain day to day.

Pronger did not play in Game 2 against Boston last night with no explanation given, although there is plenty of speculation as to what is ailing him from a hamstring injury to a back injury.

It's probably safe to say, though, that Pronger isn't just "day-to-day with hurt feelings," as he normally says, despite being on the ice for three Bruin goals.

Carter, who led the Flyers in goals during the regular season, probably remains doubtful to make a return in Game 3, though Friday night's Game 4 could be a possibility.

RECORD RATINGS: Monday night's Game 2 in the Flyers-Bruins series received a 10.70 household rating in Philadelphia, the best rating in the area on Versus since last year's Stanley Cup finals.

The game was up 134 percent from the Flyers' 2010 semifinal three-game average in Philly.

Versus was the No. 1 rated cable network in Philadelphia last night during the 7:30 to 10:45 time slot.
