So much for the validity of GM Paul Holmgren's injury updates.

The Flyers announced that LW Scott Hartnell would return to the lineup Saturday afternoon against Winnipeg.

On Thursday, Holmgren said Hartnell was five to seven days away from returning. Then the Flyers were embarrassed by lowly Florida that night, 5-2.

Suddenly, Hartnell's broken foot was starting to feel a little better.
