The Philadelphia Flyers
won Sunday's battle with the Pittsburgh Penguins
but did not emerge unscathed.
The team announced Monday that center Danny Briere
is out indefinitely with an upper-back contusion, and defenseman Nicklas Grossmann
is out 7-10 days with a lower-body injury.
Grossmann was injured midway through the first period when he collided with the Penguins Joe Vitale
Vitale's hit on Briere with 1:03 left in regulation sparked the late-game melee that saw 52 minutes in penalties assessed, as well as the ejections of and Flyers coach Peter Laviolette
and Penguins assistant coach Tony Granato
The Flyers play their final three regular-season games this week -- Tuesday against the Rangers, Thursday against the Sabres and a rematch with the Penguins on Saturday in Pittsburgh.
