It was a scary scene Wednesday night when Flyers forward Scott Laughton crashed into the end boards and had to be taken out of the game on a stretcher. Fortunately, the news about him has been encouraging since that event.
After being released from the hospital on Thursday, Laughton is planning on skating Monday, per the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi.
What’s more, Laughton might even play in Game 7, provided that the Flyers make such a contest necessary by beating the Washington Capitals Sunday afternoon. Philadelphia has already battled back from a 3-0 series deficit thanks in no small part to the efforts of goaltender Michal Neuvirth.
This is the 21-year-old Laughton’s first postseason series after scoring seven goals and 21 points in 71 contests with the Flyers during the 2015-16 campaign.
