Bad news just got worse for the Philadelphia Flyers. The team announced late Wednesday that Simon Gagne and Jeff Carter will both undergo surgery on Friday in Philadelphia. Gagne will be out for three weeks while Carter will remain sidelined indefinitely.
The Flyers can wrap up their first round series with the New Jersey Devils on Thursday in Newark. If Gagne does return in three weeks, it would come close to the end of the second round of the playoffs, should Philadelphia advance.
