Jakub Voracek will benefit most from the postponement of Tuesday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes, a rare 6 p.m. start at the Wells Fargo Center. 

Voracek sustained a bruised left hand in Monday’s 4-3 overtime loss in Uniondale, N.Y., to the Islanders.

Coach Craig Berube said Monday afternoon that Voracek was a “game-time” decision after  warm-ups, but now he's had an additional day for the hand to heal.

He was slashed early in the third period by Cal Clutterbuck.

Because the Flyers will not skate this morning, Voracek will not be able to test his hand and see how the swelling is inside his glove until warm-ups this evening.

The Flyers' right wing goes into game with 21 points (nine goals) over his previous 19 games.

Voracek returned to the Islanders game with 5:57 left in regulation, but did not go back on the ice. He remained on the bench.
