Don’t expect a few stitches to sideline Ian Laperriere.
Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said he expects the winger to play in the next round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, which could start Thursday if Washington beats Montreal tonight.
“I think hell would freeze over before he doesn’t play,” Holmgren said of Laperriere.
Laperriere suffered a non-displaced fracture of the orbital bone, according to Holmgren, after taking a puck to the face last week against New Jersey. He won’t need surgery, but will be re-evaluated today.

“He’s willing to jump in front of any puck, and is obviously a key part of our penalty-kill,” said defenseman Chris Pronger.
