Simon Gagne will pull on his orange No. 12 sweater for the 755th time (including playoffs) tonight when the Flyers host the Washington Capitals at Wells Fargo Center.
Watching from high above the ice will be his old Flyers linemate and former Capitals forward Mike Knuble, who's expected to be a healthy scratch for the first time since re-joining the Flyers on Jan. 24. Harry Zolnierczyk will return to the lineup thanks to the injury to Tye McGinn, and as always, we'll expect Ilya Bryzgalov in goal.
According to reports from the WFC, Gagne was sleeping during the morning skate today after taking a red eye flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia so he could be here in time for the game, so we don't know exactly where he'll slot in Peter Laviolette's lineup.
