Flyers’ Sean Couturier out for remainder of first round
Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier is out for the remainder of his team’s first round series against the Washington Capitals, the team announced Friday.
He is expected to miss two weeks in total.

Couturier, 23, had 11 goals and 39 points through 63 games in the regular season.
Washington took a 1–0 series lead with a 2–0 win in Game 1.
Game 2 is Saturday night in Washington.
