As if losing 10-3 on Wednesday wasn’t bad enough, the Philadelphia Flyers got lost Nicklas Grossmann to an upper body injury. According to Flyers GM Paul Holmgren, Grossmann is day-to-day.

Grossmann is a great defensive defenseman and while the concept of preventing goals might seem lost on the Pittsburgh Penguins and Flyers lately, his absence will be felt if this turns out to be a long-term issue.

He logged over 20 minutes in each of the Flyers first three contests, but was limited to just 8:54 minutes in Game 4.

Grossmann is one of the blueliners the Flyers acquired in February to help bolster their defense as they geared up for the playoffs. Philadelphia sent a 2012 second round and a 2013 third round draft pick to the Dallas Stars to complete the deal.

    If by upper body injury you mean having his knee buckled by Tyler Kennedy then yes Grossman is day to day with an ” uppper body injury ” In related news Scott Hartnell is day to day with menstraul cramps

    Haha. Waaaa, u serious bobhpine? Ur right, the NHL gave the pens all 16 wins it took to get the cup. Way to jump on the bandwagon and not have any intelligent thought of ur own. Don’t be mad at the pens for blowing it against the hawks.

    Lol the man took a shot to the head. Did any of you watch the game? Funny thing was they didn’t call that. Refs were calling everything, but a Penguin checking up high on our d-man and connects to the head and he gets nothing. Yet Matt Read throws an open ice shoulder check and gets 2 minutes for roughing. Told you all the NHL wouldn’t let the Flyers sweep the Pens. It’s cool Flyers in 5. That’s how I predicted it anyway. No way the Nhl’s baby gets swept lol

      i’ve been trying to find the hit from kennedy but there apparently is no video of it. Pretty sure he left his feet to deliver that hit. Though per TSN they think the hit Malkin put on him was the worse of the two.

        I’m not sure if he left his feet (also can’t find video) but he abosolutely had two hands smashing Grossmann’s head into the glass. Looked like Grossmann’s jaw was messed up after the play. Hope he’s okay and can get back to it, Flyers need him.

      Ya you didnt have five power plays in a row to start the game, including a 5 on 3 from a questionable call, it makes it hard on the refs when every philly player dives constantly, and acts hurt after every hit, or maybe they are such pu$$ies that they are hurt?

      • phillyhatesyou - Apr 19, 2012 at 1:16 PM

        hahaha please give me examples of the constant dives the flyers have been taking this series. i would love to know what and idiot like yourself thinks is a dive

        Schenn after the hit by Asham, was it a dirty hit, yes for sure, was he hurt, absolutely not, Hartnell, falling to the ground to start the melee because he was holding crosbys stick, i guess sid the punk is so strong thats why harts when flying, the call against kunitz, when two guys skated next to each other incidental contact was made and he fell like he was slew footed, the call against staal on couts where he barely touched him, and he acted like he was in a car accident, but i guess a self proclaimed genius like your self had no excuse for the power plays you had to start the game including the 5 on 3. Plus i guess Giroux was knocked out by getting brushed by neal too huh, or was he trying to draw a call, get real, and get over yourself, cant wait to hear your crying after you lose game 7.

    Here’s the Malkin hit, I remember the Kennedy one (his head into glass) being worse.

  8. cowgut1 - Apr 19, 2012 at 2:10 PM

    Yep, another cheap hit by a penguin that was ignored by the officials. Nice elbow to the jaw/head. Doesn’t matter, Philly will bounce back and put them out

    He diserves it for tripping letang into the post

    Sid Louganis.
    Gold medals in both olympic diving and hockey.
    Calling the Flyers divers against the Pengwhynes is like…
    Like Rothlisberger saying Vick is a sexual preditor
    Or the Pirates saying the Phillies only draw fans because of their stadium
    Or the NBA team from Pittsburgh saying the Sixers never win anything.

    By the way i really hate diving and it is ruining hockey but Pengwhyne fans should have nothing to say about it for the next 100 years or so or they will be told to STFU Trolls.
