PITTSBURGH - Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury went through a full practice Saturday and is expected to start Sunday in Philadelphia.

Fleury, a member of the Canadian Olympic team, has missed three games with a broken ring finger on his left hand. He is using a different type of glove that accommodates a splint on the broken finger.

Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis also is expected to return for the first of the Penguins' two road games in two days. He was rammed face-first into the boards by Islanders defenceman Andy Sutton on Tuesday and sat out the Penguins' 6-3 loss to Washington on Thursday.

Penguins forward Max Talbot might not be ready for Philadelphia after missing the Capitals game with an unspecified lower-body injury.
