  The Chicago Tribune depicted Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger as a woman, calling him "Chrissy Pronger" in its cover story Tuesday and putting a skirt on him in a photo.

   Pronger said he hadn't seen the photo.

  "I really couldn't care, to be honest with you," Pronger said. "I'm worried about playing the game."

  Pronger was a career-worst minus-5 in Game 5; before that, he was the best player in the Finals.

   Goalie Michael Leighton will start Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals against Chicago on Wednesday, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette indirectly announced.

    Leighton, who had three shutouts in the conference finals, leads the NHL with a 2.34 GAA in the playoffs, but he has struggled in the Finals (4.01 GAA; .864 save percentage).

    But with Brian Boucher not fully recoverd from knee injuries, it's the right choice.....the only choice.

    The Flyers will host a free pep rally outside the Wachovia Center on Wednesday from noon until 2 p.m. In addition to Flyers Alumni appearances and free hot dogs, Flyers fans can pose for photos with the Prince of Wales Trophy.
