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.
