Flyers' Knuble to return Wednesday

By Bob Herpen

Philadelphia, PA (The Phanatic Magazine) - Philadelphia Flyers forward Mike Knuble is expected to return to the lineup in time for Game 4 of his club's Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Montreal Canadiens.

Knuble slid awkwardly while trying to block a shot late in the second period in Game 5 of the team's conference quarterfinal series against the Washington Capitals and suffered a torn hamstring. He missed the final two games of that series and the first three games of the current set.

The 35-year-old was a major factor in the Flyers' opening-round win, collecting two goals, including an overtime game-winner, and three assists through the first four contests.

Heading into Wednesday's game, the Flyers hold a two-games-to-one series advantage over Montreal, the top seed in the conference.
