Dontrelle Inman Jersey Watching 38-year-old teammate Brendan Shanahan wheeled off the ice on a stretcher in the third period did nothing to change their fortunes.Scottie Upshall scored a key goal in his Philadelphia debut and the physical Flyers beat the Rangers 5-3 on Saturday, but most of the post-game talk regarded Shanahan, who was injured in a violent collision with Flyers forward Mike Knuble."We were down already, but we wanted to try and win it for him," said Rangers captain Jaromir Jagr, himself a target of the hard-hitting Flyers. "It happens in hockey Jatavis Brown Jersey but it's tough to see."The initial reports on Shanahan were good. X-rays and a CT scan were negative, but he was to be kept overnight for observation at St. Vincent's Hospital. The Rangers said he was alert and moving his extremities."You're his friend first, teammate second," defenceman Aaron Ward. "You feel for him, but he's a resilient man."The right side of Knuble's face was swollen, and the Flyers expre sed concern he has broken bones around his eye. X-rays of his neck were negative and Knuble was allowed to accompany the team on the train back to Philadelphia. He was scheduled to be evaluated by a club physician Saturday night and then go for a CT scan on Sunday.The win came in the Flyers' first game following the trade of captain Peter Forsberg to the Nashville Predators.New York also played the final period without Melvin Gordon Jersey goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who injured his left shoulder making a save, and defenceman Marek Malik. The Rangers had a season-high 23 shots in the period.Lundqvist and coach Tom Renney said he was held out to give him rest before Sunday afternoon' Junior Seau Jersey s game against Chicago.Upshall, part of the deal that sent Forsberg to the Predators during Thursday's home lo s to Toronto, scored on the Flyers' first shot against backup Stephen Valiquette to give Philadelphia a 4-2 lead 2:33 into the period.
