Confirmed? Eric Lindros Says He'll Skate Again as a Flyer, Legion Of Doom Could Reunite for Winter Classic Alumni Game

Great news for Flyers fans today, as the long-rumored return of Eric Lindros to the Flyers as part of the Alumni Game at the 2012 Winter Classic has finally been confirmed by Big E himself. Lindros was a guest on the Fan 590 in Toronto this morning, where he reportedly told the hosts he would be coming back to Philly for the event and rejoining one of the greatest lines in Flyers history.

Greg Brady Eric Lindros just on w/ us...& has OFFICIALLY committed to playing in the Winter Classic Alumni Game w/ his Legion Of Doom linemates Dec 31.

The Legion Of Doom, featuring Lindros, John LeClair, and Mikael Renberg, WAS Flyers hockey while it lasted. A combination of size, toughness, speed, and scoring abilities made them
as dangerous a unit as there was in hockey, and also as entertaining. Can the Flyers get them all back together on December 31?

Everyone knows the Lindros Era ended incredibly poorly, with relations souring between the player and the team very publicly, and long before the end actually came. It's great to see both sides putting it behind them so that the fans can get one last look at 10-88-19 skating together.

It sounds like Renberg may not have confirmed yet, but provided they can track him down, the biggest stumbling block may have been getting Lindros to commit, and it seems like he now has. More as we hear it, but this is a pretty nice start.

UPDATE: You can listen to Lindros on Fan 590 in Toronto here. The Winter Classic stuff comes in about 4 minutes in.

Today's lineup: Jorge Alfaro returns as Phillies go for sweep of Dodgers

After getting hit by a pitch on the hand on Tuesday night, catcher Jorge Alfaro is back in the lineup for the Phillies, who are aiming for a four-game sweep of the Dodgers.

On Wednesday, Alfaro was replaced by Andrew Knapp, who had one hit in three at-bats in a rare start.

Freddy Galvis, hitless in his last two games, is 4 for 7 with a homer and three RBIs against Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda.

For the first time in the last several weeks, cleanup hitter Rhys Hoskins is not in the spotlight for the Phillies. Instead, the attention has been on Aaron Altherr, who will try to finish an impressive series in style. Altherr, who hits fifth again on Thursday, is 5 for 11 with three homers and nine RBIs in the first three games against Los Angeles.

Odubel Herrera, who batted third last night and went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts, hits sixth. His season batting average from that spot in the order is .340.
