Flyers' Primeau breaks thumb

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Philadelphia captain Keith Primeau broke his right thumb when he was struck by a slap shot in the Flyers' 2-1 victory Friday over the Florida Panthers.

Primeau will see a hand specialist when the Flyers return to Philadelphia after a game at Tampa Bay on Saturday. It was not yet determined how long the centre will be out.

``Hopefully, it's just a fracture,'' Primeau said. ``My big worry is I just don't want to be out of the lineup two, three, four weeks.''

The Flyers were killing a penalty late in the first period when Primeau was hit by a shot by Florida defenceman Jay Bouwmeester. Primeau immediately lowered his right hand and skated off the ice as play continued.
