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.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
