(Philadelphia, PA) - The Philadelphia Flyers could be getting their leading goal scorer back for the final two games of the regular season.

FlyersTV: Carter speaks Thursday

Jeff Carter, who suffered a fracture in his left foot on March 21 against Atlanta, has been cleared to return to practice following an MRI at Jefferson Center City Imaging in Philadelphia on Wednesday morning. Carter, who leads the team in goals (33) and is tied with Mike Richards for the most points (60), could be available to play in the Flyers’ home-and-home with the New York Rangers. Philadelphia is at Madison Square Garden on Friday night (7:00 p.m., TCN) and hosts its division rival on Sunday afternoon at the Wachovia Center (3:00 p.m., CSN).

“Jeff had his MRI this morning and he is healing up nicely,” said general manager Paul Holmgren. “He completed his off-ice rehab and conditioning today and will practice with the team [Thursday].”

Dr. Steven Raikin, who performed the surgery, and Flyers team physician Dr. Peter DeLuca reviewed the MRI.

Carter suffered the injury while blocking a shot in the first period against Atlanta and finished the game, but noticed some pain and swelling in the foot overnight. The injury put an end to his consecutive games streak at 286 – the third longest in team history.

The 25-year-old London, Ontario native had a screw inserted in the foot on March 26 to prevent any further issues down the road.

The Flyers sit in seventh place in the Eastern Conference with 82 points, and would clinch a spot in the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs with a Rangers loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs in regulation on Wednesday night.
