Well, it’s about to look even more awful. We knew that Scott Hartnell would be out for tonight’s game against the New York Rangers with a sore foot, but we got news pre-game that it’s much worse.
According to announcer Jim Jackson, Hartnell will be out 4-8 weeks with a broken foot.
While he wasn’t off to a good start, he’s still on Giroux’s line and put up career high numbers last year playing with him. He had 37 goals and an offense that’s already sputtering like the Flyers’ can’t afford to lose that kind of production.
