Voracek ‘making progress,’ nearing return to Flyers’ lineup

They’re 10-2-2 in their last 14, they just overtook Detroit for the final wild-card spot in the East, and Saturday against the Penguins, the Philadelphia Flyers might get star winger Jakub Voracek back.

Let the good times roll.

Voracek skated yesterday in Chicago, prior to his team’s big win over the Blackhawks.

“Every day he gets closer,” coach Dave Hakstol said, per philly.com. “He’s day to day, but he’s making progress.”

Voracek hasn’t played since Feb. 25 due to a lower-body injury, so he’s been working hard to get his conditioning back.

“Miss three weeks of skating, it’s hard to catch up on,” he said Monday, per the Flyers’ website. “That’s why I need a couple of practices.”

If Voracek can’t play Saturday, the Flyers’ next game is Monday in Brooklyn.
