The Philadelphia Flyers are currently letting their playoff hopes land on the shoulders of Brian Elliott.
Ideally they'd have Carter Hart in nets, but he's currently sidelined with a lower body injury.
It seems that Hart was hurt for awhile as he had been pulled in the two games prior to officially being sidelined.
On Wednesday there was a glimmer of progress as Hart took to the ice before Flyers practice.
While it doesn't mean a return is set for the weekend, the fact that Hart is skating again means that he's close to getting over his ankle injury.
Carter Hart (ankle injury) skated before practice today. #Flyers
