Flyers rule Simmonds out for Tuesday's game

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren told reporters Monday that forward Wayne Simmonds will not play Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning due to a concussion.

"Nothing's really changed," Holmgren said. "He's not going to be able to play [Tuesday]. We'll see how he is [Tuesday]."

Simmonds was injured during a Feb. 1 game against the Washington Capitals when Washington defenseman John Erskine elbowed him in the face. Erskine was suspended three games by the NHL for the hit.

Simmonds also sat out Saturday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes. He has two goals and three assists in eight games.

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
