Flyers Vs. Maple Leafs Score: Philadelphia Skates By Toronto 4-2

Mikhail Grabovski, don’t make the orange & black angry. You wouldn’t like them when they’re angry. The Philadelphia Flyers last night slammed the brakes on a two-fight losing streak by defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Philly won the game, but lost Chris Pronger in the process.

That’s because the Flyers’ captain was caught between a high stick and a hard place when Grabovski got a little overzealous with his wood while in puck's hot pursuit.

“It’s a very scary incident for Chris and all of us to come off the ice like that,” said Flyers GM Paul Holmgren told CSNPhilly. “He had a little bit of a cut on the outside of the right eye. The eye doctor [Stephen Goldman] checked him out thoroughly. "

"Over the next three or four days, no real concern other than swelling or something behind the eye. He’s going to be on bed rest for the next three days. The hope is he’ll be fine in a few weeks here.  He will see the eye doctor for the next four days"

Pronger left the game and perhaps re-energized a stagnant Philadelphia offense, who broke open a 1-1 tie in the second period before tacking on two more in the final frame.

Jaromir Jagr and Scott Hartnell did all the heavy lifting, scoring two goals apiece with one assist. Phil Kessel snapped one in to put the Maple Leafs on the board early on and David Steckel’s tip-in later in the night pulled Toronto within two.

As in "too little, too late."

Both teams even out at 5-2-1 with 11 points following tonight’s action.
