After missing roughly a month and a half due to a broken foot, it looks like James van Riemsdyk is finally ready to return.

He previously stated that would be willing to play through any pain he might be experiencing if asked. Still, van Riemsdyk was initially listed as a game-time decision.

He’ll provide Philadelphia with some additional scoring depth as they try to shake off their embarrassing 10-3 loss in Game 4 and eliminate the Pittsburgh Penguins Friday night.

He’s projected to play on a line with Matt Read and Jakub Voracek.

    He will have 2 points this game

    Be interesting to see if he is healthy enough to be used as part of a deal to get Nash…Bob presumably being the other piece.

    Malkin takes a dive

      He learned from watching Schenn dive twice, and Briere, maybe someday he will be as good as them if he keeps working at it.

    Did they REALLY call roughing on Engelland? VERY WEAK? What a joke! Forgot. It was Danielle he hit.

    You can thank your Pens and their antics in game 3 for that call. Unfortunately, they are gonna call everything. Wish the refs would let them play like game 1.

    Sid needs to get a life? Pretty sure he already has one that is much better than all of ours. I have seen a few flyers crying to the refs too bud. Maybe you should grow up…

    Well that makes 3 hits to the head and from behind by Hartnell the pert plus Pu$$y. Never hits anyone cleanly. Would love to see his perm get knocked straight.

    It won’t matter if Grossman is out.
