Flyers fans didn't have much to stress about in Thursday's stellar 4-1 win against the Canucks that saw a three-goal explosion in the second period. However, Flyers fans did have a scare early in the third period as goalie Samuel Ersson exited the game due to injuries unknown at the time.

Ersson was having a terrific game before exiting, recording 18 saves on 19 shots and only allowing one goal. Although he was seen exiting for a reason nobody knew at the time, it turned out to be minor as he was experiencing cramps due dehydration and he should be good to go moving forward.
"He will be okay he was just cramping up"
, said head coach John Tortorella.
Another positive sign for Flyers fans was Carter Hart's performance in relief for Ersson. Hart recorded eight saves on eight shots, not allowing a single goal in 17 minutes of ice time, closing out the win for the Flyers. Tortorella called Hart's performance "outstanding".
Tortorella has yet to announce who will be in goal tonight against Seattle, but it wouldn't be surprising if he gives Ersson a day to recover after the way Hart performed last night.
