Flyers' Grossman day-to-day with upper-body injury

PHILADELPHIA -- Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann is day-to-day with an upper-body injury after a hard hit in the first period of Game 4 on Wednesday.

At 11:39 of the second period, Grossmann was hit hard by the Penguins' Tyler Kennedy in the Philadelphia zone. Grossmann skated slowly to the Flyers' bench and remained there, but did return just over a minute later.

However, he only played four shifts in the second period before leaving for good with 9:20 left.

Since arriving in Philadelphia in February, Grossmann has been paired with Braydon Coburn to form the Flyers' top shut-down defense pairing.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
