Ryan O'LearySenior Analyst IOctober 29, 2016

In a Flyers broadcast earlier this week, a graphic came across the screen to explain just how badly the team has been devastated by injuries—more specifically, their defense.

The long-term loss of veteran defenseman Chris Pronger, along with the likes of leader Kimmo Timonen and Nick Grossman has meant a lot more pucks in the back of the Flyers' nets and flickering playoff hopes.

Philadelphia is not the only team to suffer such a fate this season, as numerous clubs are licking their wounds heading into the playoffs—most notably, the Pittsburgh Penguins.

How will Sidney Crosby's jaw injury, James Neal's concussion and Kris Letang's leg injury affect the Penguins' chances this year? And which other teams will be the most devastated by injury?
