Philadelphia Flyers VS New Jersey Devils


Philadelphia Flyers


Andrej Meszaros, Defense – Back – Day-to-Day

Meszaros has been sidelined with a back injury but has returned to practice since April 27th. He could be back any game but the excellent play from rookie Erik Gustafsson has allowed the less than 100% Meszaros to remain in the fourth pairing.

 

Chris Pronger looks closer to retirement that a return in the playoffs.

 

New Jersey Devils


Ilya Kovalchuk, Wing – Lower Body – Day-to-Day

Kovalchuk was a scratch for game two with a lower body injury. There is some speculation that it is a back injury. Kovalchuk has been playing through the injury for the better part of the post season. He may return for game three.

 

Lou Lamooriello commented that Josefson has not resumed skating yet but he will shortly. Josefson has a wrist fracture and is wearing a cast that was recently reduced in size. His return at some point in the series is promising. The chances of Henrik Tallinder returning at any point in the post season are “doubtful”
