PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Flyers return to the ice tonight as they visit the New Jersey Devils. This is the third game of a six-game road trip, and thus far the Flyers have split the first two games.
Flyers have had their share of injuries this season, and when forward Scott Hartnell went down, the Flyers brought back one of the more popular players in recent memory, Mike Knuble, to help fill the void.
Knuble spent four seasons with the Flyers from 2005-2009, scoring 114 goals during his stay. He signed with Washington as a free agent prior to the 2009-10 season. But he says it is nice to be back.
“To be back in town, it’s a pretty easy transition,” Knuble tells KYW Newsradio. “It’s like you never left sometimes. There’s still some familiar faces, guys I’m playing with here, there’s five or six guys left over from when I was here. And then all our staff is the same, so you walk in and it’s like there’s basically maybe some new paint on the walls and that’s about it. Couple of pictures have moved around, but other than that it’s pretty much the same as when you left it.”
