Barring an unexpected relapse, defensemen Andreas Lilja (throat) and Pavel Kubina (upper-body) will return to the Flyers' lineup Tuesday night against Florida.

Both went through a full morning skate and were actually paired together. Both said they expected to play.

Max Talbot (right shoulder) left the ice in a hurry, not talking to reporters, but he too is expected back if only because the Flyers have no other forwards available other than Jody Shelley. Shelley took extra ice time at the skate, meaning he won't dress tonight.
