    PHILADELPHIA -- The Flyers acquired Keith Primeau to provide depth at center and insurance in case Eric Lindros got hurt. Now Primeau might join Lindros on the sidelines.
   Primeau's status is uncertain for the upcoming Eastern Conference finals against the New Jersey Devils.
   "I'm feeling better," Primeau said Wednesday. "It's too early to tell. We'll take it on a day-to-day basis."
   Primeau returned to Philadelphia on Wednesday after spending the night in a Pittsburgh hospital following a hit by the Penguins' Bob Boughner in the first minute of the Flyers' 2-1 series-clinching victory over Pittsburgh on Tuesday night in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
   X-rays at UPMC Presbyterian University Hospital proved negative. Primeau will be reevaluated by team physicians, who will determine if he sustained a concussion.
   Lindros could return to full practice with the team May 23 if he shows continued improvement from a Grade II concussion suffered last week, his doctor said.
   Lindros was examined by Chicago neurologist Dr. James Kelly on Wednesday, six days after he took a hit to the head in a collision with another player during practice.
   Kelly said Lindros has shown improvement from that injury and can increase his non-skating workouts in Toronto through Monday. The two plan to speak by telephone Tuesday for an update.
