Flyers' Hartnell returns to lineup

The Philadelphia Flyers welcomed forward Scott Hartnell back to the lineup on Saturday after a 16-game absence.

Hartnell was out of action since suffering a broken left toe in a Jan. 22 contest against the New Jersey Devils and had successful surgery to repair the damage three days later.

Earlier in the week, Hartnell returned to practice and pronounced himself 7- to-10 days away from returning.
