The Flyers were again hit by the injury bug in Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Boston Bruiins at the Wells Fargo Center. The latest injury occurred during a disastrous first period.
Not only were the Flyers outscored, 4-0 in the first period, but rookie center Sean Couturier was lost for the game after suffering a head injury.
With 48.7 seconds remaining in the first period, Couturier was hit in the back of the head on a slap shot by teammate Kimmo Timonen.
Couturier stayed down a few minutes, skated off and it was announced shortly after that he would not return.
