PITTSBURGH - Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury will be in uniform when the Pittsburgh Penguins face the Flyers on Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon after missing 12 games with a groin injury.

Penguins coach Michel Therrien wouldn't say Friday if Fleury or Dany Sabourin would start against the Flyers.

Fleury, who helped lead the Penguins to the Stanley Cup final last season, was 8-3-2 with a 2.86 goals-against average before getting hurt during a 5-2 win against Buffalo on Nov. 15.

Sabourin has made all but two starts since Fleury was hurt and is 6-5-2 with a 2.20 goals-against average this season.

Rookie goalie John Curry, who stopped 24 shots during a 9-2 rout of the New York Islanders on Thursday night, was returned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Friday. He went 2-1 in three games, beating the Islanders for both of his victories.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
