Flyers will be without Jakub Voracek (lower body) for about two weeks

Tough news for the Philadelphia Flyers on deadline day: Jakub Voracek is expected to miss about two weeks with a lower-body injury.

Philly currently sits one spot outside of the East’s wild card picture, with 67 points in 61 games played. The Pittsburgh Penguins are the closest playoff team ahead of them: 70 points in 60 games played.

That’s far from insurmountable, although that task looks a lot tougher without Voracek.

Voracek struggle with just three points in 10 October games, but he’s been close to a point-per-game guy since then.

Some wonder if Voracek might miss a little more than that estimated two weeks, too.

The Voracek-less Flyers face off against the … several players-less Calgary Flames tonight.
