The Anaheim Ducks have shown they can survive a playoff game without one of the NHL's most feared defensemen in the lineup. Now they will have to prove they can prevent a turnaround in the Stanley Cup Finals without Chris Pronger, who was suspended for one game yesterday by league disciplinarian Colin Campbell for a flagrant elbow to the head of Dean McAmmond during the Senators' 5-3 victory in Game 3. Pronger will not dress tonight for...

Carolina left wing Erik Cole will miss at least the rest of the regular season with a compression fracture in a vertebra in his neck caused when he was driven headfirst into the boards by Pittsburgh's Brooks Orpik during a 7-5 Hurricanes victory Saturday. Cole, 27, tied for second on the team in scoring with 60 points, will be out at least 6 to 8 weeks - a major loss for the team with the NHL's best record. Carolina has not ruled out Cole returning for the playoffs, which begin in mid-April.

Chris Pronger has only been in Philadelphia a few months and he already notices a difference between Philly fans and Dodgers fans in Orange County, Calif. Pronger would know. He spent the last three seasons with the Anaheim Ducks. "It's certainly different," Pronger said. "Philly fans are very passionate about their sports teams. They really take to them. " Pronger saw the fans in Orange County, a non-traditional hockey market in Southern California, at their best and worst.

ED BARKOWITZ THERE ISN'T a team in the Eastern Conference that the Flyers can't beat. And, as they showed in their struggles against lowly Atlanta, there isn't a team they can't lose to, either. The inconsistency is maddening, but this team undoubtedly responds when it must. The most significant response will need to come from rookie goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, who was yanked in the regular-season finale. Nobody in the East has been better than Buffalo recently, so this won't be a quick, first-round walk like last season, when the Flyers disposed of New Jersey in five.

When the Flyers pick No. 11 in the first round of the June 30 NHL draft, here are some players who may be available: Darnell Nurse, D, 6-foot-4, 195 pounds He plays an aggressive, gritty style and models his game after Chris Pronger and Shea Weber. His offense is improving. Rasmus Ristolainen, D, 6-2, 189 The righthanded-shooting Finn plays with a nasty edge; he is regarded as a solid two-way defenseman and would be a nice consolation prize if Nurse is gone.

TORONTO - Chris Pronger has not skated in an NHL game since Nov. 19, 2011. Yet Pronger, in addition to every player on the Flyers' payroll in 2012-13, will receive a long-awaited bonus check in the mail next month. Every player with an NHL contract from the lockout-shortened campaign will receive the first of three "transition payments" on Oct. 15, when their first paycheck is distributed. The payment was first reported by sportsnet.ca's Chris Johnston. The transition payments, doled out on Oct. 15 in 2014, 2015 and 2016, were negotiated as part of the NHL's new Collective Bargaining Agreement when the lockout ended.

SEE IF YOU notice the pattern. Q: Why do the Flyers need a goaltender? A: Chris Pronger. Q: Why did the Flyers lose to the Bruins? A: Chris Pronger. Q: Who is the Flyers' most important health issue? A: Chris Pronger. You really don't have to read the rest if you don't feel like it. This is about the issue that should dominate the Flyers' thinking in the offseason. This is about Chris Pronger. The Flyers slumped down the stretch of the regular season when Pronger broke a hand, and they were bounced in the second round of the playoffs when he injured his back, and now he is a 36-year-old potentially facing surgery on a herniated disc, and now the Flyers had better be in more of a hurry than they were last summer.

Flyers captain Claude Giroux, who underwent surgery Aug. 15 to repair tendon damage in his right index finger, seems to be progressing ahead of schedule. Giroux was able to pass the puck gingerly - but not shoot it - during the opening of training camp Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center. "It felt better than I thought it would," said Giroux, who said he hurt his finger on the golf course when his club shattered. "I wasn't even sure I'd be able to touch the puck," he added. Giroux continues to ice his finger and hopes to play in some preseason contests "to get the feel for the game" again.
