Best Case Scenario: Simon Gagne Could Return For Game 5

Simon Gagne and the Philadelphia Flyers will hope for good news on Friday when the winger goes for another MRI on his broken toe. If the results are positive, Gagne could begin skating that day and, according to Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, could return to the Philadelphia lineup as soon as next Monday's Game 5.

That's if a Game 5 is necessary, of course. The Boston Bruins are up 2-0 over the Flyers in their Eastern Conference semifinal series, but if the Flyers can win two games at home this week and even the series, SBN's Broad Street Hockey says that Gagne's return for Game 5 could be a giant boost.

Assuming the Flyers win all of their games on home ice, that would mean they still have to win one game in Boston. Having Simon Gagne in the lineup would go a long way towards fixing match up issues that Peter Laviolette and the Flyers have had while playing at TD Garden. A return this series is vital for Gagne and the team.
