Flyers Coburn Leaves Game, Wont Return
When the Philadelphia Flyers arent losing games, it seems like theyre losing key players to injury. Add big defenseman Braydon Coburn to that list after Thursday.
The 28-year-old blueliner suffered an upper-body injury during the teams game against the New York Islanders and wont return.
While hes had a rough 2013 at times, the Flyers need all the help they can get on defense. Hes been sturdy since becoming an NHL regular, too, missing just eight games in the last five seasons.
Beyond keeping him out of the remainder of tonights contest, its unclear how severe this ailment is.
