Two goals each by Jaromir Jagr and Scott Hartnell gave the Flyers a 4-2 home win over Maple Leafs Monday night, but the bigger story coming out of the game was the right eye injury suffered by All-Star defenseman and team captain Chris Pronger.
The injury, shown in the video above, occurred in the first period as the strick of the Maple Leafs' Mikhail Grabovski hit Pronger's eye as Grabovki's follow through on his shot.
According to Anthony J. Sanfilippo's game story, Pronger will be on bed rest for the next four days and will see an eye specialist during that time. The expectation is he will be back playing in three weeks.
