PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Flyers will be going for a fourth straight win tonight as they host the Ottawa Senators at the Wachovia Center, and they will do so with one of their best players back in the lineup.
Defenseman Chris Pronger is set to suit up for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot in mid-December. Pronger missed 13 games but the Flyers didn’t miss a beat in his absence, going 9-4.
Pronger has four goals and 11 assists in 31 games this season.
The Flyers currently have 65 points — that’s tied with Vancouver for the top total in the NHL.
