Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne will miss Thursday's playoff game in New Jersey because of injuries to their right foot, the Flyers announced.

Both are day to day, general manager Paul Holmgren said.

The forwards were injured in Tuesday's 4-1 win over visiting New Jersey in Game 3. After the game, Carter said "it's nothing," but he was limping around the locker room.

Gagne was injured blocking a Brian Rolston shot, while Carter apparently injured his foot while scoring his second goal in the game. He had missed eight late-season games with a broken left foot.

Ville Leino will see action on Thursday, and there is a chance Jon Kalinski or David Laliberte will be activated.
The Flyers lead the series, three games to one.
