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.
