Video: Braydon Coburn Takes a Puck to the Face

May 12, 2008, 5:04 AM EDT

Things started off pretty awful for the Flyers last night when Braydon Coburn was hit with a rocketed puck to the face. It’s never a good sign when they have to bring the shovel out to remove all of the blood from the ice. Coburn was taken out of the game and never returned.

Video of the puck to the face:

With the loss of Coburn moments into game two, the Flyers found themselves fighting an uphill battle against the Pens potent offense. Despite not having their two best defensemen on the ice, the Flyers fought to keep the game close. Mike Richards short handed goal to end the second period was a huge boost the our battered psyches. But a poor clearing attempt by Stevie Downie proved fatal and the Flyers find themselves in a rather big hole.

Barry Melrose actually thought the Flyers deserved better as seen in the video below.
