ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) — The Philadelphia Flyers will
continue their season-long, six-game road swing Friday when they
visit the Anaheim Ducks.
After losing the first two stops on the trip, the Flyers bounced
back with a 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.
Jeff Carter, who leads the NHL with 27 goals and ranks first on
the club with 43 points, scored a goal and setup another in the
Philadelphia will be without left wing Simon Gagne, who suffered
a shoulder injury 15 seconds into Tuesday’s win.
Gagne is enjoying one of the best campaigns of his career with
18 goals and 22 assists, but will be out at least the next week.
The Ducks have lost four of their last five games.
Anaheim, which has dropped four of five games, is coming off a
2-0 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was the first time
the Ducks had been blanked at home since December 2, 2007.
