The Flyers are now 7-1-1 without Jake Voracek, who is recovering from an injury to his left foot.
So the question is:
Whom does coach Dave Hakstol sit so Voracek can start, possible as early as Saturday against Pittsburgh?
“Every day he gets closer,” Hakstol said before the Flyers beat the Blackhawks last night. “He’s day to day, but he’s making progress.
“At this time of year, in the situation we’re in, we don’t really have a choice,” he said. “The alternative isn’t very good. Our group has just continued to play hard. But we’re not doing anything a whole lot different over the last five or 10 games than we had over the [previous] 20 to 30 games. Everybody’s playing hard together, and we’re at a critical point in our year.”
