Buzz On Broad:
If you thought that the start of the Flyers' season couldn't get any worse, you were wrong.
First line forward Scott Hartnell has been ruled out indefinitely with a left foot injury. Hartnell suffered the injury in last night's 3-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils when he took a Kimmo Timonen shot from the point off of his foot.
The team hopes to learn more about the injury in the next day or two.
There's no word yet on who will replace Scotty in the Flyers' lineup, specifically the first line, in tomorrow's contest at home against the New York Rangers. The easy call would have been Brayden Schenn, who played the first two games on the top line before becoming third line center last night, but he was suspened for one game by Brendan Shanahan and the NHL.
Hartnell has one assist and 13 penalty minutes so far this season.

The Philadelphia Flyers will be without one of their top forwards for a stretch.

Off to their worst start in 17 seasons, the Philadelphia Flyers are eager to turn things around.
Doing so, however, could prove difficult with Scott Hartnell out indefinitely.
In their first game since losing Hartnell to a left foot injury, the Flyers try to pick up their first points Thursday night against a New York Rangers team that's had their number of late.
From bad to worse ... and with the New York Rangers coming to town, too.
As I suspected when coach Peter Laviolette and GM Paul Holmgren avoided questions today, Scott Hartnell is out indefinitely with a left foot injury.
I am guessing it's fractured, the result of being hit by a shot from Kimmo Timonen in the third period of Tuesday's 3-0 loss at New Jersey.
Thursday was a very strange day for Philadelphia sports. Things started out on the wrong foot, but then quickly turned to the right foot...then went sour again.
The Flyers won their first game of the 2013 season on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The orange and black defeated their rivals, and team they haven't beaten in their last 8 meetings, the New York Rangers...
