Bruins' Lucic cleared to play against Red Wings

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic is expected to be in the lineup Saturday when the Bruins play the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

This will be Lucic's first game action since May 14, when the Bruins lost Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round to the Montreal Canadiens. He has been recovering from offseason wrist surgery. He skated Saturday morning and received what the Bruins website called a "positive evaluation" on the wrist.

"Looks like it," Lucic said. "Everything's progressed really, really well over the last two weeks, especially, and with the group decision, we decided that today would be a good time for me to come back. I'm excited to get into my first game here."

Jets' Galiardi has eye surgery, out at least a week

Winnipeg Jets forward TJ Galiardi had laser eye surgery Friday to repair damage sustained from taking a puck near his left eye during practice that morning. The team announced Galiardi regained sight in the eye and will be out at least seven days.

"I can't tell you whether it's a cut or anything more until he sees the right people," Jets coach Paul Maurice told the Winnipeg Free Press on Friday. "It was around (the eye). Speaking from personal experience, those things close up so fast, you're not sure until you get a guy who knows what he's doing to look at it. He walked out of here under his own power. It was in the eye area."

The Jets agreed to terms with Galiardi, 26, on a one-year, two-way contract worth $750,000 on Aug. 1. He had 17 points (four goals, 13 assists) in 62 games with the Calgary Flames last season, and has 104 points (43 goals, 61 assists) in 283 games with the Colorado AvalancheSan Jose Sharks and Flames.

Lightning goalie Bishop to make preseason debut

Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop will play in his first game since late in the 2013-14 regular season when the Lightning host the Dallas Stars on Friday.

The Lightning were swept by the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Bishop had surgery in late April to repair a torn ligament in his wrist, an injury sustained earlier in the season.

"I just want to get back into rhythm," Bishop told the Lightning website. "You want to start feeling the rushes and adjust to a real game."
