Lindros Gets Third Opinion

Wed., Oct. 23, 1996

Eric Lindros said he was “more at ease” after speaking to a third doctor about his groin injury this week. But he still wasn’t sure when he would be back on the ice for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Lindros said he had been improving, but then reached a plateau and wasn’t getting better - only more anxious to play.

As for further treatment, he said he may try acupuncture again and try some different abdominal exercise.

The all-star center skated in pain Monday at the Flyers’ practice rink in Voorhees, N.J., then flew to Durham, N.C., to be examined by William Garrett at the Duke University Sports Medicine Center.
