Banged Up Flyers Can’t Catch a Break

Man.  Peter Forsberg comes back from injury, the Flyers look great with him in the line up, and it all lasts about a period.

Peter Forsberg comes back in the lineup on Saturday after missing
five games, all losses, and the Flyers are an energized, hard-hitting,
passing, skating, defending team.

With a new skate on his right foot, and playing like he hasn’t been
able to play all year, Forsberg sets up the first goal and delivers
several big hits.

Then, after digging the puck out of the boards, Washington’s Alex
Ovechkin slams Forsberg and that’s it for the night. Forsberg goes to
the bench and does not come back.

He has a concussion.

There must be some sort of curse of Ed Snider.  We need to get to the bottom of this.
