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 remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
