Gagne to Return Thursday?


After 25 games on the shelf after sustaining the C word, Simon Gagne appears ready to return to action. Via the Flyers PR blog, we've learned that Gagne said after practice yesterday that he hopes to play on Thursday against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The team's most talented goal scorer is sorely needed now, with Joffrey Lupul sidelined for several weeks with a concussion and a spinal contusion.

Before his injury, Gagne was off to a hot start, with 4 goals and 4 assists in 10 games. Expect Danny Briere's numbers to rebound with a sniper back on his line as well.
