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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
