Hawks' Ladd expected back vs. Flyers
Ladd left Game 4 against the San Jose Sharks on Sunday after suffering what appeared to be a shoulder injury. He played just 2:14 in the game. After the Hawks clinched the series, Ladd was seen in street clothes on the ice celebrating with his teammates. He was not wearing a sling or harness.
On Tuesday Joel Quenneville declared him day to day and said the Hawks "expect him to play in the series."
Ladd was unavailable for comment after practice.
Ladd has two goals and one assist in 16 playoff games.
