Not that long before puck drop (for a game on NBCSN, might we add), the Philadelphia Flyers announced that Brayden Schenn will miss tonight’s contest against the Boston Bruins.
There aren’t a ton of details beyond it being an upper-body injury.
Broadstreet Hockey mulled over possible lineup implications, as Schenn apparently seemed fine as far as the morning skate went. There seems to be two scenarios: Sam Gagner slides into the lineup or Vincent Lecavalier makes his 2015-16 debut.
The Gagner option may be a bit more likely:
Luke Schenn appears headed for the lineup, which ruined any “Schenn-less” headlines (no fun).
Update: It’s possible that Antoine Roussel may have injured Schenn.
Here’s the full exchange from Tuesday night, which does focus mostly on the fallout with Sam Gagner and Roussel.
