Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia Flyers are expected to play Saturday night against the Devils in New Jersey without forwards Vincent Lecavalier and Steve Downie.

Both were hurt Friday night during fights in a 7-0 loss to Washington.

Lecavalier suffered a facial injury in a third-period scrap against Steve Olesky and Downie sustained a concussion in a second-period bout with Aaron Volpatti.

The teams combined for 164 penalty minutes, including 10 fighting majors and five game misconducts.

Flyers goaltender Ray Emery was among those who was ejected after skating the length of the ice to fight Caps netminder Braden Holtby, who was a reluctant participant and took the punishment. Holtby was not ejected.
