Is It The Flu, Virus Or Concussion?

from Tim Panaccio at CSN Philly,

Both Gagne and general manager Paul Holmgren denied after the game he was concussed. Gagne said he had either the flu or a stomach virus, since he has been experiencing digestion problems for two days. Holmgren said Gagne was dehydrated and that’s all.

Gagne, like another famous Flyer, Keith Primeau, suffered multiple concussions last season and has experienced post-concussion syndrome.

Neurological experts say anyone who has suffered from post-concussion syndrome can experience concussion symptoms many months or even years later because they have suffered multiple brain trauma.

In other words, Gagne could have concussion symptoms without being hit or incurring an injury in a game.
