PHILADELPHIA - Michael Leighton(notes) wore an orange-and-black uniform, crouched in goal under the Philadelphia Flyers' 2009-10 Eastern Conference championship banner and heard 18,000 fans cheering for him in the NHL arena.
Leighton was back on the ice where he felt he belonged.
While the setting of his greatest professional moments were fit for a triumphant homecoming, the circumstances left Leighton realizing how removed he is from resuming his NHL career. This start wasn't for the Stanley Cup finalist Flyers, it was for the Adirondack Phantoms, the Flyers' AHL affiliate, against the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins on Friday night.
Leighton played his first regular-season game in Philadelphia since he started Game 6 of the finals against the Chicago Blackhawks in June.
He has no idea when — or if — he'll be back in Philly this season wearing a Flyers sweater......
They showed this game on CSN, he played well and it was a really good win for the Phantoms.
