I have been told that Richards in all likelihood will return to the line-up Saturday afternoon in Boston for the Flyers...
Richards has said he is 90% sure he will play but what I'm being told is more like 99+%
Not sure about line combinations but I would think it probable that he rejoins Scott Hartnell and Joffrey Lupul as he has worked well with both of those guys in the past.
So I would figure the line combinations would be something like
Prospal - Briere - Umberger
Hartnell - Richards - Lupul
Upshall - Carter - Knuble
Downie - Dowd - (Kapanen or Cote depending on Kapi's flu status)
Jones is out for the weekend... Does this mean Kukkonen gets in the lineup?
