Shayne Gostisbehere left Thursday night's Flyers game in Minnesota with a lower body injury, but initial reports indicate that it doesn't appear to be a serious thing. That's the hope at least.

The Flyers announced that he'll miss Saturday's game against the Islanders, nonetheless. He's also not at practice on Friday.

When you hear that he has a knee injury, that's concerning -- he had surgery to repair his torn left ACL just last year. But luckily, this seems to be a right knee problem, and hopefully he'll be back in the lineup quickly here.

The team plans to update his status on Saturday. Perhaps they are awaiting an MRI or something like that? We'll know more in a day.
