VOORHEES, N. J. - Nicklas Grossmann worked with usual partner Braydon Coburn at Saturdays rather short Flyers practice.
Thats another sign the big Swede will re-enter the lineup for Game 1 of the Flyers-Devils series on Sunday.
I dont know at this point, well see, he said. It feels good to be on the ice. I havent talked to the doctors yet. I dont want to make any conclusions yet. I feel better every day and try to take it a day at a time.
Grossmann also admitted he needs some hard, physical contact, as well. Hes had only light contact in practice.
Yeah, exactly and its tough to say if I am ready today or a week or whatever, he said.
Based on the lineup at practice, the defense looks like this:
Kimmo Timonen-Matt Carle
Erik Gustafsson-Andreas Lilja
