Updates: Lappy A Budding Hero in Philly

Ian Laperriere’s iconic glow is continuing to grow in Philadelphia. The Flyers’ left winger and penalty kill extraordinaire added another piece to his growing legend in the series clincher over the New Jersey Devils this past Thursday, as he blocked a Paul Martin slapper with his face. After suffering a broken orbital bone, Lappy will be forced to wear a shield/visor for likely the remainder of his career as a safety precaution. However, no surgery is required, so Laperriere will be ready for Round 2. If the Flyers can watch Lapperiere’s grit, determination, and desire the rest of the way – and imitate it to the best of their ability – they may have some great opportunities available for them in the future. Until then, however, we sit and wait for Round 2, and a rejuvenated (and slightly repaired) Ian Laperriere.
