Flyers without Pronger for Game 2 vs. Bruins
The Flyers will be without defenseman Chris Pronger for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Bruins on Tuesday.
PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers will be without defenseman Chris Pronger for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Boston Bruins on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, VERSUS, TSN, RDS) due to an undisclosed injury.
 
Pronger did not skate with the team at Tuesday's morning skate, but when the Flyers distributed a post-practice injury report Tuesday, it listed Pronger as "OK."
 
Pronger was a minus-3 in 19:45 of action in Game 1 on Saturday, the most ice time he's seen in his three games back from a broken right hand that sidelined him for nearly seven weeks. However, he did not play in the final five minutes of Game 1, which CSNPhilly.com reported was a back issue. It was also reported he's suffering from a head cold.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
