Kukla's Korner Hockey

Esche is slated to start in goal at Pittsburgh on Saturday. He hasn't played since aggravating a groin injury on Dec. 15. Pitkanen, one of the team's best defensemen, also was cleared to play against the Penguins. He's been out since Dec. 6 after abdominal surgery for a sports hernia. Meanwhile, Forsberg, the Flyers' leading scorer, will miss his second straight game with an abdominal strain - the injury originally was thought to be a groin strain. Johnsson has concussion-like symptoms, but the defenseman still might play Saturday if results from his CAT scan are fine.
