Couturier Injured During Practice Tuesday
While the Flyers are dealing with ways to try and slow down the high-flying Penguins, one of their key contributors was injured at practice Tuesday morning.
The teams top-line center Sean Couturier, collided with defenseman Radko Gudas, during practice as Couturier had to be helped off the ice, leaving his status for Game 4 versus Pittsburgh up-in-the-air.
An update on Couturier won't come until Wednesday, according to Flyers GM Ron Hextall.
The 25-year-old was working with Jakob Voracek and Claude Giroux on the top-line before being injured by Gudas. He had to be helped off the ice by trainer Jim McCrrosin, limping his way off the ice.
Reviews from some of the Players was mixed, saying everything from Couturier is fine to they are concerned.
"Coots will be fine," forward Wayne Simmonds said. "I’m not worried about Coots."
"I really don’t know anything yet. Didn’t look too good," said captain Claude Giroux. "I guess we’ll know more later."
6 ABC sports reporter Jamie Apody caught the accident on camera.
