The Flyers got one top-six forward back on the ice but were missing another one at practice Wednesday.
Wayne Simmonds, who had been battling the flu, returned to practice for the first time since the team's trip to Lake Placid, N.Y., last week.
Simmonds said he felt OK on the ice.
"I'm fine," Simmonds said. "Had a good practice [Tuesday] before the game, too. I was good [Tuesday], just coming back off the flu. But I feel healthy, feel strong and ready to go."
