Flyers coach Peter Laviolette confirmed this morning that Chris Pronger will play tonight against Ottawa.

Pronger has been out of the lineup since sustaining a broken bone in his right foot on Dec. 15. The Flyers went 9-4 without their top defenseman. As expected, Matt Walker joined Oskars Bartulis and Dan Carcillo on the healthy scratch list.

Laviolette also said Sergei Bobrovsky will get his second consecutive start in net tonight. Bobrovsky beat the Senators in November, stopping 28 shots in the Flyers 5-1 win at the Wells Fargo Center. Bobrovsky has won his last three starts, including a 3-2 win over the Capitals on Tuesday.

The Senators (17-23-7) are 29th in the NHL in goals and just 1-6-3 in their last 10 games.
