Nicklas Grossmann Injury Update: Defenseman Out With Concussion For Game 5

The Philadelphia Flyers will be without Nicklas Grossmann during Friday night's Game 5 after the defenseman suffered a concussion in Philadelphia's 10-3 Game 4 loss on Wednesday.

Coach Peter Laviolette said Grossmann, who is out indefinitely and did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh, will be replaced by Erik Gustafsson.

Ilya Bryzgalov is a game-time decision.

The Flyers will look to close out the Penguins Friday after squandering their first opportunity to do so on Wednesday. Pittsburgh will be without defenseman Paul Martin, out with an undisclosed injury since Game 2.
