Seen and heard last night at Wachovia Center in Philadelphia:

FEELING BETTER — Left wing Matt Pettinger, who has missed three games with a slight concussion, skated for the first time since he was injured Oct.31 against Atlanta. He indicated he was feeling better and was hoping to see some action early next week, although the medical staff might think that’s too quick a return.

Center Michael Nylander, out since Oct.2 with a broken right leg, is still on injured reserve with no firm indication from club officials when he might return.

Backup goalie Sebastien Charpentier is scheduled to see more medical specialists in an attempt to determine the cause of his upper leg injury and to find a course of treatment. Rastislav Stana, who has carried the nickname “the Rat” since his arrival in North America from Slovakia several years ago, continues to back up Olie Kolzig but, with the team struggling, there are no plans to play him in the NHL just yet.

HE’S BACK — The Flyers activated left wing Donald Brashear, just in time for the heavyweight to tune up his fistic skills. Brashear had missed nine games with a grade 2 sprain of the MCL in his left knee sustained in practice Oct.14.
