PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Chris Pronger's wry smile and sharp tongue hardly suggested he and the Philadelphia Flyers are shaken by big Dustin Byfuglien and the suddenly potent Chicago Blackhawks.

Pronger is coming off the worst performance of his career - a shockingly brutal minus-5 rating in the Flyers' 7-4 loss in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals on Sunday night that has put Philadelphia down 3-2 and on the brink of elimination yet again.

The Flyers have two days off before they have to deal with Byfuglien and the Blackhawks again on Wednesday. Philadelphia seemingly has Chicago right where it wants, at home in the Wachovia Center, where the Flyers are 9-1 in the playoffs - including 2-0 in the finals.
