It's starting to look more and more like Chris Pronger won't be playing in Game One but will be on the ice for the Flyers at some time in this series, probably sooner rather than later.
Pronger told reporters today after the Flyers' practice that he was "very confident" he would play in the series but would not commit to Game One. "I guess you will have to wait and see," he said.
Pronger, out with a broken hand since March 8, has not shot a puck in two weeks and will try some stickhandling today. GM Paul Holmgren continues to list him as day to day.
Daniel Briere told Philadelphia reporters he had "no clue" about Pronger's status after telling WGR Radio today that the big defenseman would be out for Game One and might miss the series.
