Despite some skepticism from fans, media and maybe even some teammates, friends and family members, the Flyers’ Simon Gagne claims the only reason he left Thursday night’s game in the second period was because of symptoms that felt like the flu….
If there’s any connection between this situation and last year, Gagne said, it has more to do with the fatigue of the rigorous schedule right now.
“Not playing for eight months last year, coming back, and if you look at the last two weeks, it’s just hockey, day off, hockey,” Gagne said. “It’s a lot of games. I knew this year I would have some ups and downs.”
Gagne said no tests related to a concussion were performed.
“There’s no point,” he said. “I didn’t get hit. It’s just natural for people to get sick, so you don’t have to run a test for a concussion if you just get sick.’’
