Oft-injured Gustafsson may have groin problem

Flyers defenseman Erik Gustafsson went out of tonight's 4-1 Flyers victory over the Washington Capitals after taking a shot off his shin.
Afterward, Gustafsson, who missed a lot of games with the Phantoms after going out with a broken ankle -- suffered after he blocked a shot -- in December, said this injury is on his other leg.
But sources say Gustafsson isn't dealing with the after-effects of a shot to the shin, but rather a possible pulled groin muscle. Either way, Gustafsson, while not revealing the nature of the injury, is hopeful it doesn't turn out to be a serious one.
"Obviously you don't want to be injured but it's part of the game," he said. "Stuff happens. It got treated ... I'll be back sooner rather than later."
