    Nick Boynton Sent Home from Road Trip

    NEWARK, N.J. -- Florida defenseman Nick Boynton has been dismissed from the team for disciplinary reasons and will not be with the team for the remainder of the team's three game road trip.

    Boynton, acquired from Phoenix over the summer as part of the Olli Jokinen trade, played Thursday in New York and traveled with the team to its suburban New Jersey hotel after the game.

    According to roommate Keith Ballard, Boynton was upset with the team's decision to send him back to South Florida. It's possible, with the NHL trade deadline coming on Wednesday that Boynton has played his last game with the Panthers (although Jacques Martin didn't sound that way on Friday night in Philly).

    Boynton was benched for the third period of Thursday's comeback win against the Rangers and there have been rumors general manager Jacques Martin was even thinking of waiving Boynton. Martin confirmed that Boynton had been sent home but wouldn't go into further detail.

    Little used Noah Welch now gets his chance to make his mark, and will play in at least the next three games starting Saturday at New Jersey (1 p.m., FSN).

    - Goalie Tomas Vokoun is still suffering from an inner ear infection and didn't practice Friday. Craig Anderson will likely start against Martin Brodeur and the Devils.

    - Winger Cory Stillman is still limping around with a seriuosly bruised foot after being hit by a puck Thursday morning. He is doubtful for Saturday as well.

    More later when I get to Philly... Habs-Flyers LIVE! tonight.
    Not a huge loss.
