BROSSARD -- Alex Galchenyuk confirmed on Wednesday that he will be back in the lineup against the Flyers on Thursday.

The 22-year-old traveled with his teammates to Philadelphia following a three-game absence after re-aggravating a knee injury on January 21. The initial injury was suffered on December 4, and sidelined Galchenyuk for 18 games.

In 30 outings this season, the Habs forward has 11 goals and 27 points, and is in the top five among his teammates in both categories despite missing 21 games.
