Simon Gagne isn't the only Flyers winger who is back.
So is Scott Hartnell.
Oh, Hartnell has played three games since returning from a broken left foot, but it wasn't until Wednesday that he started to assert himself, keying the Flyers' 4-1 win over Washington.
Hartnell was more physical and quicker than in any of his other games since he returned, and he picked up a pair of primary assists - one in which he won a puck battle in front and, from his knees, sent a pass to Claude Giroux for an easy goal.
"I think it took a couple games to feel comfortable and up to speed with them," said Hartnell, referring to linemates Giroux and Jake Voracek. "I felt like the first couple of games they were hitting the blue line four or five strides before I got there. I think [Wednesday] I was right there with them, if not ahead a couple of times.
