Leopold, unlike Pronger, skating with team

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Both the Sabres and Flyers have a key defenseman trying to return from a broken hand. Buffalo has the early edge.

While Chris Pronger skated alone today and barely tested his injury, Sabres blue-liner Jordan Leopold is skating with his teamates during practice in Flyers Skate Zone. Leopold, who broke his hand March 25, is handling the puck and passing. His recovery return date is next Friday, but he seems ahead of pace.

Unlike Pronger, who had surgery in mid-March, Leopold's broken hand was allowed to heal on its own.
