(Tampa, FL) – Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren updated the status of left wing Simon Gagne prior to the Flyers-Tampa Bay Lightning game at the St. Pete Times Forum on Thursday night.
Gagne will not play in the game on Thursday but is possible for Saturday afternoon’s game in Boston, according to Holmgren.
Gagne left Wednesday night's 4-3 loss in the first period with dizziness, after being hit by the Panthers' Jay Bouwmeester.
Q: What is the update on Simon? PH: “He’s feeling much better today. He’s going to be evaluated between periods of the game tonight. We should know the results of that by either later tonight or tomorrow. He’s a possibility to be able to play on Saturday.” Q: Did he go through the neurological testing yet? PH: “No. [Flyers athletic trainer] Jimmy McCrossin is actually going to do it via a computer program that he has.”
Q: Did he have any symptoms today? PH: “No, he felt great. He feels good today and once we administer the test to him we’ll have a better idea.”
