The Other Paper:
A busted up NHL player posted pictures of his battered and bruised face after a fight during a game last week and — thanks to a follower's comparison — shows an uncanny resemblance to the Star Wars character Darth Maul — or more like Darth mauled.
Philadelphia Flyers rookie Tye McGinn got into a fight last Monday but by the looks of things he is still felling the pain.
The discolored eyes, red bruises and black scars still look scarily fresh and — combined with the hoodie— McGinn has a ready-made Halloween costume.
Aftrer the fight with Mike Brown of the Toronto Maple Leafs, McGinn had to undergo surgery for a broken orbital bone. He will be out for at least four weeks.
Welcome to the NHL. Or Chowbaso in Huttese.

Tye McGinn of the Philadelphia Flyers got into a fight last week with the Maple Leafs’ Mike Brown and the result was not pretty. Tye left the fight with a broken orbital bone and a couple of nice shiners. Check out the picture which he took of himself showing off his war wounds. The broken bone will keep him out

22-year old LW Tye McGinn made his debut with the Philadelphia Flyers a little over a week ago. Only a few days later he found himself in the middle of a scrap with then Toronto Maple Leaf Mike Brown. Brown, a seasoned veteran of the NHL fighting circuit, pounded McGinn and ended up fracturing his orbital bone.
The fight took place on February 25, but a photo surfaced today showing...
Yikes. This photo was found on Gongshow Hockey Gear’s Facebook Page and presumably came from Tye McGinn himself. The Philadelphia Flyers rookie fought Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mike Brown on February 25th and clearly got the worst of it. McGinn knocked Brown early during the fight, but once Brown got back up, it was all over for McGinn. His jersey was ripped and his...
This was a very scary moment during the Philadelphia Flyers-New York Rangers game. You know someone is hurt badly when your rival starts calling to your bench for a trainer. Marc Staal was writhing around on the ground in very obvious pain, and the damage done is unclear at the moment. With 14:15 minutes left in the third period, Flyers defensemen Kimmo Timonen let this bomb...
Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros, who has been sidelined since Jan. 24 with a separated shoulder, appears to be finally close to being ready to play. There is a chance he could be in the lineup tomorrow night when the Flyers play the Rangers. More will be known after practice today.
Prior to suffering the shoulder injury, Meszaros was playing surprisingly well over his first...
GET WELL SOON
I’m not sure what the Rangers’ Marc Staal ever did to the Flyers’ Kimmo Timonen, but I’m guessing Staal didn’t deserve this. And yes, I know it was a total fluke play. Timmonen wound up with a slap shot from just inside the blue line and the puck caromed off something in front of Staal before jumping up and getting him in the face. Staal was done in pain for nearly...

It can be easy to forget that Wayne Simmonds is still new to the goal scoring business.
After not once breaking the 20-goal plateau while a member of the Los Angeles Kings, Simmonds had an auspicious opening season with the Philadelphia Flyers during the 2011-12 season. His 28 goals were not only a career...

from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers at the Philadelphia Daily News,
Pronger, 38, has understandably not addressed the media or the public about his ultimate career-ending eye injury until now. There isn’t much he’s allowed to say.
He gave his first interview to close family friend, Rogers Sportsnet analyst Dan Murphy in a two-part series which will air beginning...
