EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) _ Right wing Tim Kerr of the Philadelphia Flyers, plagued throughout the playoffs by an injured right knee, was re-injured in the third period of Saturday night’s 4-3 Stanley Cup playoff loss to the Edmonton Oilers and is listed as day-to-day, the team announced.
Kerr, a 54-goal scorer during the regular National Hockey League season, led the league with 21 power-play goals while missing only six games.
After setting a playoff record with four goals in one period against the New York Rangers in the opening round of post-season play and helping the Flyers overcome the New York Islanders in the Patrick Division finals, Kerr was injured in the first game of the Wales Conference finals against the Quebec Nordiques. The team listed him as day-to-day at the time, but he never returned to play in that series, which Philadelphia won in six games.
Edmonton leads Philadelphia 2-1 in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final series. Games 4 and 5 are slated for Tuesday and Thursday in Edmonton, where the Oilers have not lost in 14 post-season games.
