Perron returns for Oilers; Flyers shuffle lines

PHILADELPHIA -- The Edmonton Oilers will have forward David Perron back in the lineup Saturday when they play the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
