Pronger sits again for Flyers
For the fourth playoff game in a row, the Philadelphia Flyers are without defenseman Chris Pronger.

The 36-year-old defenseman, out with a broken right hand, was on the ice at HSBC Arena after the Flyers' morning skate Wednesday, taking part in a conditioning scrimmage with three players who haven't seen playoff action yet, plus two assistant coaches. But he was not in the lineup for Game 4 of the Flyers' Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against Buffalo on Wednesday night.

Pronger had surgery on the fractured hand on March 14 and has not played since. He did handle the puck quite a bit, taking and making passes and flicking a few wrist shots.

The Flyers take a 2-1 series lead into Game 4.
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
