VOORHEES, N.J. -- Flyers defensemen Andrej Meszaros
and Nicklas Grossmann
were on the ice briefly Tuesday as they attempt to recover from their injuries.
Grossmann is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury that kept him out of the final two games of the Flyers' first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins
. He skated with the team's extra players prior to the start of regular practice.
Meszaros is recovering from back surgery performed March 21. He skated with the extra players and also was on the ice briefly with the main group wearing a gray, non-contact jersey. It's the first time he's skated with the team since leaving the lineup March 1. The original prognosis was for him to miss 6-8 weeks.
All but two of the healthy players were on the ice for Tuesday's practice. Center Danny Briere
and defenseman Kimmo Timonen
were absent from the workout, which was heavy on conditioning.
In Briere's absence, the Flyers shuffled two of their four lines, with the top trio of Claude Giroux
with Jaromir Jagr
and Scott Hartnell
staying intact, along with the line of Sean Couturier
between Maxime Talbot
and Eric Wellwood
. The other lines saw Matt Read
centering James van Riemsdyk
and Wayne Simmonds
, and Brayden Schenn
between Zac Rinaldo
and Jakub Voracek
