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.
