VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) - Philadelphia Flyers captain Peter Forsberg is expected back in the lineup Thursday against the Montreal Canadiens.

Forsberg, who missed four games with a groin injury, skated in practice Wednesday and announced he's ready to go.

''Everything's fine,'' he said. ''And hopefully I'll be in the lineup for a while.''

Forsberg has spent the last few days trying, again, to perfect a skate boot for his troublesome right ankle, which was surgically repaired last May. The 33-year-old Swede has said he believes problems with his skate caused the groin injury.

Doctors at Temple University have been working with him, experimenting with different orthotics to try to get a proper fit.

''Is it a hundred per cent? No, it's not a hundred per cent,'' said Forsberg, who has missed 16 games and parts of three others this season. ''But I have to play. My hope is that it will get to one hundred per cent.''
