Chara returns just in time

As if the hockey gods haven't played enough tricks with the Philadelphia Flyers lately, here's another holiday gut punch:

Boston Bruins captain and defenseman Zdeno Chara will be in the lineup for Saturday's matinee contest after a two-game absence from a leg injury suffered in last Saturday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Flyers, of course, will be without defenseman and captain Chris Pronger for the foreseeable future. He'll be sorely missed as these two perennial rivals battle for early-season Eastern Conference supremacy.
