The Flyers will go back to a 12-forward lineup when they host powerful Washington on Thursday night.

They recalled right winger Justin Bailey from the Phantoms, and he will be on the fourth line.

In Monday’s 3-2 win over Ottawa, the Flyers went with 11 forwards and seven defensemen, including Andrew MacDonald, who will be a healthy scratch Thursday.

The Flyers are five points out of a playoff spot with 13 games left and are in a virtual must-win situation the rest of the way.
