Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann appears to be on the mend after missing Games 5 and 6 against Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
Grossmann practiced Thursday in a regular jersey, meaning he was able to take contact, for the first time since suffering what is reportedly believed to be a concussion in Game 4 against the Penguins.
Defenseman Andrej Meszaros, who is recovering from back surgery, skated toward the end of practice.
Also, Flyers forward Maxime Talbot was hit in the mouth early in practice and had to leave. His injury is not believed to be serious.
Philadelphia won't find out its next opponent until after the Game 7s are completed Thursday. The Flyers will face one of Florida, New Jersey, Washington or Ottawa in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
