Philadelphia Flyers' captain Peter Forsberg returns to face Capitals

Forsberg was in the starting lineup against the Washington Capitals after missing four games. The 33-year-old centre found an adequate skate after working with foot experts at Temple University in Philadelphia and officials from a hockey equipment company in Canada.

Back from a three-day trip to Montreal, Forsberg delivered immediate results: He received an assist on a goal by Mike Knuble that staked the Flyers to a 1-0 lead at 3:31 of the first period.

Philadelphia was seeking to end a five-game losing streak - one short of the franchise record. The Flyers are 0-6-3 without Forsberg in the lineup.
