Pronger to make return tonight for Flyers
The Philadelphia Flyers announced via their Twitter account that captain Chris Pronger would return to the lineup to face the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday.

Pronger had missed the previous six games after being struck in the right eye by the stick of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski during a game on Oct. 24. For the season, Pronger has a goal, 7 points and a plus-2 rating in eight games.
Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
