Two More Flyers Hurt: Lilja Takes Shot to Neck and Talbot Nicked in Fight

Two More Flyers Hurt: Lilja Takes Shot to Neck and Talbot Nicked in Fight

Already short some key players, including a pair of defensemen in Andrej Meszaros and Pavel Kubina, the Flyers lost two more in Boston on Saturday. They were forced to play most of the game without defenseman Andreas Lilja, who was hit in the neck with a shot that had been deflected, and later Max Talbot, who was injured in a second period fight. 
Video below. 
And here's Talbot's fight with Johnny Boychuk, which didn't last long but left Talbot visibly uncomfortable. Almost as uncomfortable as we were hearing Jack Edwards call the fight…

He left the penalty box during a stoppage and didn't return. The Flyers aren't saying what the injury is. (Thanks to for the second video.)
No word yet on the severity of Lilja's injury either. Lilja has been playing some solid hockey lately, and with Meszaros and Kubina expected to be unavailable tomorrow against Pittsburgh, he'd be missed.
