WASHINGTON (AP) -Philadelphia Flyers right wing Mike Knuble sustained a partial tear of his left hamstring in Saturday's Game 5 loss to the Washington Capitals and is out for the rest of the series.
Knuble, who scored the winning goal in double overtime in Game 4, tumbled to the ice in a moment of indecision over whether to try to block a shot late in the second period.
``I just kind of caught my heel and went down awkwardly,'' Knuble said.
Knuble tried to stretch the muscle while on the bench but was unable to return.
Knuble had 29 goals and 26 assists during the regular season and two goals and three assists during the series.
