Carter Hart still wears his Stadium Series gear specially tailored for that outdoor game.
Those black pads with orange lining will only see morning skates and practices, and right now, that’s exactly where Hart is in his recovery from a sore ankle that will force him to miss his sixth straight game against the Capitals.
However, Hart joined his teammates for the first time during Wedneday’s morning skate and he’ll likely ramp up his activity level for Thursday’s practice.
“I felt pretty good,” Hart said. "Obviously, we’re being careful.”
Hart injured the ankle leaning up against the post during the Flyers' morning skate prior to his start in Montreal on Feb. 21. He was pulled midway through the first period after allowing three goals on nine shots, including one in which he was leaning up against the post. However, Hart maintains the injury had nothing to do with the goal itself.
