… is that it may be hurting (I'm just going to run this Superbad reference into the ground).

Last night Howard Eskin Tweeted the following:

Sources tell me Chris Pronger left game on Saturday with back pain. Will be examined on Sunday morning.


There's no more information on this, but Chris Pronger didn't speak to the media yesterday, because, according to Sam Carchidi, he "lost his voice." Yeah, OK.

I was at the game and noticed Pronger leave the bench with about two and a half minutes remaining. Just before that, he appeared to get into it on the ice with JVR, who almost took a penalty just as the Flyers were about to go on the powerplay. I'm now guessing his exit from the bench had something to do with his back.

Counting on Paul Holmgren to deny that report in 3…2…1…

Meanwhile, in Boston, Bruins fans aren't too happy about Prongs' two-hander on Daniel Paille. I see nothing…
