The Flyers skipped the post practice scrimmage Friday, likely due to a limited amount of healthy players. Josh Beaulieu missed his third practice after taking a shot to the skate and leaving the ice Tuesday. Steve Downie missed his second practice in a row. Mario Kempe was not available due to an injury he suffered Thursday that caused him to be helped off the ice. Claude Giroux also skipped Friday’s practice for unknown reasons.
Thursday’s scrimmage was forced to switch to four-on-four, midway through the contest, due to limited roster by both teams.
