Florida's Booth removed on stretcher in Flyers' win

BY foxsports • October 25, 2009

Florida left wing David Booth was taken off the ice on stretcher after a hard hit from Philadelphia captain Mike Richards, overshadowing the Flyers' easy victory over the Panthers on Saturday night.

Danny Briere had two goals, Arron Asham scored for a third straight game, and Simon Gagne ended his longest goal drought to start a season in the Flyers' 5-1 victory.

Booth, who scored the Panthers' lone goal, left the ice on a stretcher near the end of the second period following a hard blow to the face from the Flyers captain. He was taken to Pennsylvania Hospital, where he will remain overnight for tests, according to Panthers' GM Randy Sexton. A member of the team's medical staff will remain with Booth until he is able to return to Florida.
