Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren says Zac Rinaldo (thigh laceration) might miss more time than originally thought.
At first, Rinaldo was expected to miss about a week after he was sliced with a skate during Sunday's game and required 20 stitches in his thigh. However, Holmgren thinks Rinaldo might need more time than that to recover. Cuts can be tricky and everyone's skin heals at a different pace, so the Flyers don't have much choice but to sit and wait for the cut to close. The Flyers play five games in the next seven days, all of which Rinaldo appears likely to miss.
