Grossmann getting closer

Good news in Flyerdom: Defenseman Nick Grossmann practiced in a regular (contact-permitted) jersey Thursday in Voorhees for the first time since he suffered an apparent concussion in Game 4 against Pittsburgh.

It appears Grossmann, the Flyers' most physical defenseman, will be ready for the start of the next series.

The Flyers will find out after Thursday's conference quarterfinals which team they play in the next round.

Defenseman Andrej Meszaros, sidelined because of back surgery, took part in the latter stages of practice while wearing a back brace.

Max Talbot left practice early after getting hit in the mouth. Not believed to be serious.
