No Panic on Broad Street: Leighton’s back issue minor

Several sources on Monday afternoon indicate that goaltender Michael Leighton’s back injury is not as severe as indicated.

The Flyers issued a statement saying Leighton will miss a few days with a back strain, and will be re-evaluated at the end of the week.

Leighton had been forced to exit Friday’s exhibition game prior to the shootout after aggravating a previous back issue.
