Just when things were beginning to turn around for the Flyers, bad news strikes. The 26-year old winger left Wednesday’s victory over Pittsburgh with an upper-body injury, but it was not clear just how serious the situation was.

GM Paul Holmgren announced just moments ago that Read will miss six weeks with torn rib cage muscles. That puts his scheduled return right around the first week of April, maybe leaving him with 10 or so games to get prepared for the playoffs.

Read, who recorded 24 goals and 47 points during the regular season last year, was leading the the team with 7 goals in 18 games this season.
