Matt Read returns for Flyers

PHILADELPHIA -- Forward Matt Read returned to the Philadelphia Flyers' lineup Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center against the Pittsburgh Penguins after missing six games with torn muscles in his rib cage.

Read, who last played Feb. 20 against Pittsburgh, was originally supposed to miss six weeks, but he's back after missing exactly 15 days. He is starting the game on the third line with Sean Couturier and Simon Gagne.

Read had 13 points in 18 games this season.

Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann is also in the lineup after leaving the game Tuesday against the New York Rangers after the first period with a lower-body injury.

For the Penguins, defenseman Paul Martin is back after missing two games with a lower-body injury. Martin started the game paired with Brooks Orpik on the Penguins' blue line.

Blackhawks recall Bollig, expect Hossa to play Friday

One day after sending forward Brandon Bollig to Rockford of the American Hockey League, the Chicago Blackhawks recalled Bollig on Thursday afternoon.

After Bollig was sent to the AHL on Wednesday afternoon, the Blackhawks used his roster spot to bring defenseman Steve Montador off the injured reserve list, which gave Chicago eight active defensemen heading into a home game that night against the Colorado Avalanche.

Prior to the Blackhawks' 3-2 win at United Center, forward Marian Hossa was a late scratch because of an upper-body injury after taking warm-ups.

Chicago then lost third-line center Andrew Shaw in the second period with an upper-body injury before star left wing Patrick Sharp was hurt 7:49 into the third after being driven hard into the boards by Colorado's Ryan O'Byrne. Sharp left the ice holding his left shoulder and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said he would probably miss some time.

Smith back in net vs. Allen as Coyotes oppose Blues

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes finally get to face another opponent after a unique three-game series with the Anaheim Ducks. After falling 2-0 Wednesday in Anaheim but getting four out of six points in the three games, the Coyotes face the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Goalie Mike Smith, who sat out for the first time in 16 games Wednesday in favor of Jason LaBarbera, will be back in goal. The Coyotes are hoping to have Radim Vrbata (lower body) back in the lineup either against St. Louis or Saturday against the Dallas Stars, and sent Chris Brown back to the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League on Wednesday.

The Blues will start Jake Allen in net coming off Tuesday's 6-4 loss at the Los Angeles Kings.

Frustrated Doughty still in search of first goal

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Anybody who had Jake Muzzin with four goals and Drew Doughty with zero at the 21-game mark of the season should probably head to the nearest casino.

That's where it stands for Doughty, who is still searching for his first goal going into Thursday, when the Los Angeles Kings play the Dallas Stars.

"It's frustrating, obviously," the defenseman said. "It's in my head too often. I want to get that goal really bad. It's not that I'm cheating or doing anything different to try and get it. I'm still just playing my solid defensive game and if I have that opportunity, I'll try to put one in the net. Yeah, it's frustrating, but the coaches are happy with the way I'm playing. If I don't score a goal and we're winning, it really doesn't matter."

Read could return for Flyers

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Matt Read, who hasn't played since Feb. 20 because of torn muscles in his rib cage, took part in the Philadelphia Flyers' morning skate and looks like he'll return to the lineup.

The original diagnosis was for Read to miss six weeks, but if he does play Thursday against the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins, he'll have missed two weeks and one day. He left the lineup after a hard hit by the Penguins' Chris Kunitz in the first period of that Feb. 20 game.

"Just getting better every day," Read said. "I look forward to getting back into lineup. It's gone day to day right now. It's getting better."

Read said he still has soreness when he shoots the puck.

"I've still got to do some treatments, some stretching and see how I feel," Read said. "It's really not my decision, it's [coach Peter] Laviolette and [general manager Paul Holmgren] if they want me out there."

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.

— Senators goalie Andrew Hammond, who defeated the Jets on Wednesday to improve to 6-0-1 since making his first NHL start on Feb. 18
