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

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.

— Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello on goaltender Jonathan Bernier
