Not exactly a sunshine and rainbows weekend for the NHL when it comes to its concussion problem.
(Whether or not it's an epidemic is a matter of semantics and, in the NHL's case, some legal concerns.)
Sidney Crosby is visiting yet another doctor for his symptoms. Marc Savard doesn't see a "bright future" in his post-concussion hell. Winnipeg Jets leading scorer Evander Kane is out with a concussion, coming to his team with a headache and then being diagnosed.

From the Flyers:
