Report: Samuelsson out two weeks with broken finger

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland announced Wednesday that veteran forward Mikael Samuelsson has a non-displaced fractured finger and will miss a minimum of two weeks, according to a report by Detroit Free Press beat writer Helene St. James.

Samuelsson had missed 12 games this season with a groin injury, returned to the lineup Sunday against the Minnesota Wild, but took an Ian White shot off his left hand during the morning skate prior to Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators.

St. James reported the Red Wings are awaiting test results on Jimmy Howard, who left the 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators in the first period with blurry vision. Howard gave up two goals on seven shots before he was lifted and replaced by Jonas Gustavsson.

Deslauriers spent four games as the backup to Viktor Fasth.

Nash out, Kreider in for Rangers

Rick Nash will not play for the New York Rangers against the Montreal Canadiens, the team announced Tuesday afternoon.

Nash was a question mark for the team's game Sunday against the Washington Capitals because he was "banged up," according to coach John Tortorella. He played against the Capitals, but will not skate against the Canadiens.

Rookie Chris Kreider is expected to return to the lineup in place of Nash, who was the team's marquee offseason addition. Nash has three goals and 12 points in 14 games for the Rangers.

Suspended AHL game to be resumed March 1

The Springfield Falcons announced they will finish their suspended game from Sunday, Feb. 17 against the Adirondack Phantoms on Friday, March 1 at 6:05 p.m. prior to that evening's scheduled contest between the two clubs, which will now begin at 7:30 p.m.

The Feb. 17 game was postponed due to an on-ice seizure suffered by Falcons forward Wade MacLeod, who has since been released from Baystate Medical Center, is in good spirits, and is resting comfortably.

The game will resume with 3:42 remaining in the second period with Adirondack leading, 2-1, and Springfield commencing a two-minute power play.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
