Hartnell to play for Flyers, Hutton in goal for Predators

Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell will be in the lineup Thursday against the Nashville Predators after initial concern that a lower-body injury sustained blocking a shot against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday would sideline him.

Hartnell said a puck hit him "right on the side" of his skate and was concerned he had sustained a broken foot. He missed 16 games after blocking a shot with his foot last season.

"It felt good," Hartnell said after taking part in the Flyers' morning skate Thursday. "Better than I thought it would. Anytime you block a shot it gets sore, and obviously I was worried about this one, but I should be ready to go."

Hartnell said he plans on wearing protective skate guards on both feet going forward.

For the Predators, Carter Hutton told the Tennessean that he would start in net. Goaltender Devan Dubnyk, acquired Wednesday from the Edmonton Oilers, joined the team in Philadelphia but due to paperwork issues might not be able to dress for the game. If he can't go, Marek Mazanec will be the backup.

Zinetula Bilyaletdinov, coach of Russia's team for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, announced Wednesday that Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk has been named team captain.

"When I discussed this issue with coaching staff and the team's general manager, Alexei Kasatonov, it felt like Datsyuk was the most suitable candidate for the role," Bilyaletdinov said at a press conference in Moscow. "It was important that the players supported the choice as well."

Datsyuk seems to be excited to lead the team at the Olympics, which will take place in his home country.
