Here’s some good news for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Claude Giroux (upper-body) is back in Philadelphia’s lineup for Saturday’s matinee against the Arizona Coyotes.

Giroux’s missed each of his team’s last three games after taking this shot from Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban just over a week ago.

With Jakub Voracek out of the lineup, Giroux is expected to center a line with Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds.

Prior to going down with the injury, Giroux had picked up 13 points in his last 12 contests.

The 28-year-old has 16 goals and 49 points in 57 games this season.

The Flyers went 2-1-0 without their captain.

They’re currently three points behind Pittsburgh for the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.
