"You can't replace the kind of guy he is," said Andrej Meszaros, who was among the many Flyers players who learned the news about Pronger from reporters after the game. "I hope he's going to be healthy as soon as possible and we'll have to find a way to win games without him. We've done a pretty good job so far but that's a tough break."
"All the defensemen are trying to jump up into the play, whoever has the chance," he said. "That's the game now, and if you want to attack and you have the D join in, it's a big advantage to score a goal."
