Found January 21, 2014 on Sports Injury Alert:
The crappy weather ravaging the northeast on Tuesday may be a blessing in disguise for Philadelphia Flyers' high-scoring right winger Jakub Voracek.Voracek was forced from Monday's shootout loss to the New York Islanders to get a finger taped and splinted after taking a nasty slash, playing just over eleven minutes of ice time - returning to the bench after receiving medical attention but seeing no further action.The Flyers were scheduled to host the Carolina Hurricanes at Wells Fargo Arena on Tuesday, but with the city socked in by heavy snow, the game was postponed until Wednesday night.Voracek had already been ruled out of the game by the time the postponement was announced, and it is hoped that the extra day would make the difference for Wednesday's makeup date.The break could be just what the doctor ordered for the Flyers as a whole, who have played six games in nine days and have won just twice in that span.If Voracek is able to go on Wednesday, he w...
