Chris Pronger could be headed for his fourth surgery in 10 about months.
The 36-year-old Flyers defenseman, in a conference call with reporters Monday, said he will meet with a doctor on Tuesday and learn if he needs surgery for a herniated disc in his back.
Pronger said he wasn't sure how he suffered the injury, but that he started to feel pain in Game 7 against Buffalo. He played in Game 1 against Boston but was laboring, and was minus-3 in the game.
The pain, Pronger said, grew worse with each passing day. He missed the last three games of the Boston series.
