Flyers without Pronger for Game 2 vs. Bruins

By Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
