Downie returns to Flyers against Washington

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren is hoping forward Steve Downie will do for captain Claude Giroux what he was able to do for Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche.

Specifically, provide him with some space and time to rekindle a little offensive magic.

Downie will return to the place where it all began for him Friday in Philadelphia when the Flyers host the Washington Capitals at Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US). Philadelphia reacquired Downie, 26, in a trade with the Avalanche on Thursday in exchange for forward Maxime Talbot.

In 11 games with the Avalanche, Downie saw plenty of time on the top line with Duchene, who currently leads the team in goals (nine), power-play goals (three) and points (13). Giroux has no goals and six assists in 11 games this season, and is a minus-7, tied for the worst mark on the team.

Callahan skates, Moore out for Rangers

NEW YORK -- Coming off a spirited 3-2 come-from-behind road win against the New York Islanders on Tuesday, the New York Rangers seemed to be in high spirits during their morning skate Thursday.

That mood was buoyed even more by the presence of captain Ryan Callahan, who skated with his team for the first time since breaking his thumb in a win against the Washington Capitals on Oct. 16.

Callahan wore a yellow non-contact jersey during the skate and is not expected to return to the lineup for at least 7-10 days. But his presence and the energy that comes with it was welcomed by coaches and players alike as they prepare to face the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-CA) at Madison Square Garden.

"It's always good to see players come back. [Callahan] is a big piece of the team," goaltender Henrik Lundqvist said. "I'm not sure when he's going to be ready to play, but it's good to see him out there."

Hartnell returns for Flyers, Grabner back for Islanders

There will be a number of compelling returns Saturday night as the New York Islanders play host to the Philadelphia Flyers at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The most obvious will be defenseman Mark Streit, who served as the Islanders' captain for three seasons before signing this past summer with the Flyers. This will mark Streit's first game back on Long Island and he should figure prominently after being promoted this past week to the top unit on a power play that ranks 29th in the League with an 8.1 percent success rate.

"He was an integral part of our team. He was our captain. He moved on," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said after practice Saturday. "We wish him luck but we have a job to do tonight and that is focus on the Flyers."

The Flyers spent plenty of time practicing their power play Saturday and should benefit greatly from the return of forward Scott Hartnell, who missed four games with a reported rib injury. In order to make room for Hartnell in the lineup, the Flyers sent forward Tye McGinn down to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. Hartnell will skate on a line with Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek.

The Islanders will also have a welcome return to their lineup, as forward Michael Grabner will be back after serving his two-game suspension for a hit on Nathan Gerbe of the Carolina Hurricanes. With the speedy Austrian back in the lineup, Brock Nelson will be a healthy scratch for the Islanders.

Talbot starts, Rangers' Lundqvist eyes Monday return

Two nights after making his first NHL start, goaltender Cam Talbot will return to the New York Rangers' net Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

Talbot stopped 25 of 27 shots Thursday night against the Philadelphia Flyers, but came up on the short end of a 2-1 loss that dropped New York's record to 2-6-0. With the Rangers playing the final contest in a nine-game road trip to start the 2013-14 season, Talbot is looking forward to getting back in the crease.
