Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossman will miss Friday night's Game 5 against Pittsburgh with a concussion. Grossman sustained the injury in the second period of a 10-3 loss in Game 4 on Wednesday and could be out indefinitely.
Grossman did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh. Erik Gustafsson will take Grossman's spot in the lineup. The Flyers are already without Marc-Andre Bourdon, who went down with an upper body injury in Game 1.
The Penguins will be without defenseman Paul Martin, who will miss his second straight game with an undisclosed injury. Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma says Martin's ice time will be split between Simon Despres and Brian Strait.

Most of us have witnessed the highly competitive battle of Pennsylvania between the Flyers and Penguins in the first round of the NHL Playoffs. Both teams have been candid about their dislike for one another, including each others fanbases. In yesterday’s pre-game warm ups, Claude Giroux punk’d some Penguins fans by pretending to throw them a puck over the glass and then skating...
Flyers Winger James Van Riemsdyk returned to the lineup last night for the first time since March 1st, but it wasn't enough to keep the Flyers from losing.
The series has gone from 3-0 to 3-2 in the blink of an eye. All of the feel good stories about how well Flyers’ rookies have played and how poorly the Penguins’ stars have played have all dissipated. So has all of the...
As the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal match between the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins shifts back to the Consol Energy Center for tonight’s game, the pressure to come out and finish the series off intensifies for the Flyers.
After a demoralizing 10-3 loss the other night that saw coach Peter Laviolette yank Ilya Bryzgalov, the talk in the city has focused on what...
from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers, Defenseman Nick Grossmann missed Thursday’s practice.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said that Grossmann suffered an “upper-body” injury in Game 4 against Pittsburgh. He is officially listed as “day-to-day.”
Grossmann left the game in the second period after taking an elbow to the head from Evgeni Malkin. NBC 10’s Howard...
Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann will sit out Friday's Game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series versus the Pittsburgh Penguins with a concussion.
Grossmann suffered the concussion during Wednesday's 10-3 lopsided loss in the City of Brotherly Love.
Erik Gustafsson will take Grossmann's spot in the lineup for the Flyers, who can close out...
Solid effort from the Flyers goaltending and defense last night in its 10-3 loss in Game 4. If you’re going to lose you might as well get your ass kicked. Get the ass kicking out of the system. Come back strong in Game 5 and finish off Sids. Yes, your new semi-NSFW hero/goon Zac Rinaldo was thrown out for this in a blowout. Vancouver also survived elimination.
In Columbian hooker...
Shoddy goaltending and defense, coupled with a lack of discipline allowed the Pittsburgh Penguins a new lease on life in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. The Flyers now lead the series 3-1.
A 10-3 drubbing at the hands of an archenemy hurts, no matter what the circumstances surround it are. With that said, the way the Flyers lost to the Penguins in game 4 of their Eastern Conference...
Through the first three games of the series, the Flyers played like a team possessed. Up and down the lineup, the players all seemed to maintain the perfect underdog demeanor. They played like a team confident in their ability to come out on top when they executed, and even more confident in their ability overcome and deficit that might lie before them. But up 3-0 in the series,...
Game 4 is one Flyers fans would like to forget even happened. The we were embarrassed in front of our home crowd by a desperate Pittsburgh team. The 10-3 final looked more like the score from a Steelers/Browns game from last year.
We knew the Pens weren't going to lay down in this series, and they proved that by running up the score on the Flyers Wednesday night. We saw flashes...

Sometimes, Flyers fans are simply blind with passion.
You had to be blind to think for one minute that Marc-Andre Fleury didn't steal Game 5 for the Penguins.
Or that Ilya Bryzgalov lost the game for you.
Fleury was better and made the critical stops to give his team a win. Finally, we had a playoff game that resembled a "true" playoff game where defensive...
Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury reverted to 40-win form and stifled the Flyers in Game 5.
The way Philadelphia forward Scott Hartnell sees it, it's about time for Ilya Bryzgalov to do the same in Game 6.
''It's time for our defense and our goalie to win us a game,'' Hartnell said Saturday. ''It's not that Bryz is playing bad. We'd love...
