Good news on Laughton, plus a funny story about Ed Snider and Donald Trump

Scott Laughton loses his edge and balance when reaching for the puck, which results in an awkward hit into the board. Laughton is ultimately stretchered off and brought to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

Good news on the health of Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Laughton.

Teammate Wayne Simmonds told reporters that Laughton is talking and moving and will be released from hospital later today.

Laughton was taken to the hospital last night after crashing into the end boards during the Flyers’ 2-1 victory over the Capitals. He stayed overnight for “precautionary reasons.”

Game 5 of the Flyers-Capitals series goes tomorrow in Washington.

Today, the Flyers attended the celebration of owner Ed Snider’s life at Wells Fargo Center -- a ceremony that featured a pretty good story about Snider and Donald Trump.

Apparently, Trump was once kicked out of Snider’s private suite during a playoff game -- not because of politics, but because Trump wouldn’t stop talking to Snider.
