Pronger returns with Flyers facing elimination
Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger is back in the

Flyers struggled in going 8-7-6, including the playoffs, without

to start this series.
Leighton took over in the first period of Game 5 after Brian
Boucher allowed three goals on 11 shots. Leighton made 20 saves
before allowing Tyler Ennis’ overtime goal in Buffalo’s 4-3
