After practicing today, Philadelphia forward Jakub Voracek believes he’ll be in the Flyers’ opening-day lineup Wednesday at home to Toronto.

“Today’s practice, basically for the first time, I feel a little better every time I skate,” he said, per CSN Philly.

“If I feel the same way I felt today, I should be ready for Wednesday.”

Voracek hurt his lower back last week in a preseason game against the Devils. The 24-year-old led the Flyers with 22 goals in 2013.
