Oskar Lindblom makes return from cancer


Oskar Lindblom will be in the lineup for Game 6 on Thursday against the New York Islanders

Lindblom will play for the first time since Dec. 7. The Flyers announced he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, which is a rare form of bone cancer, shortly afterward and on July 2 he finished his treatments. Lindblom’s return is sure to give the Flyers a big boost even though Sean Couturier is unavailable to play.
