JVR, Carcillo miss Flyers' practice

  James van Riemsdyk (lower-body injury) and Dan Carcillo (ill) missed Tuesday's practice, but GM Paul Holmgren thought the Flyers' wingers would be able to play Thursday against visiting Toronto.

   JVR absorbed a crunching check from Nick Boynton at Monday's practice. Holmgren said the check did not cause the injury.

    At Tuesday's practice, Nik Zherdev was on a line with Mike Richards and Kris Versteeg, while Andreas Nodl was with Jeff Carter and Claude Giroux.

   The Flyers shuffled their PP units, a development that didn't sit well with some of the players.

   The PP units looked like this: Danny Briere-Scott Hartnell-Ville-Leino, Andrej Meszaros-Kimmo Timonen; Richards-Giroux-Carter, Chris Pronger-Matt Carle.

   Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to face Toronto. The Flyers are hoping Blair Betts (lacerated finger) and Pronger (hand) are able to play.
