Flyers' Grossmann out with a concussion

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said defenseman Nicklas Grossmann will miss at least 2-3 more weeks with concussion issues.

Holmgren said Grossmann is seeing concussion specialists in Pittsburgh for what he said were "vestibular issues."

Grossmann, who was injured during a practice last month, has not played since March 18. He has four points in 30 games but leads the team with 82 blocked shots and is fourth with 81 hits.

Holmgren also said center Danny Briere, who also sustained a concussion during a practice last month, could return to the lineup Thursday against the Ottawa Senators. Briere, who has five goals and eight assists in 26 games, has been skating for about a week.

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.

— Nashville captain Shea Weber in an interview with the Predators website
