Talbot starts for Rangers near college home

New York Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot will have his father, Mark, watching in person when he gets the start Saturday when the team's annual "Dads Trip" comes to Music City for a game against the Nashville Predators.

But having his father in the stands won't be the only thing making the night special as Talbot gets his first start since making 22 saves to shut out the Montreal Canadiens, 2-0, on Nov. 16. Talbot played college hockey at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, located about 100 miles south of Nashville. The Ontario native didn't say if he expected an Alabama contingent at Bridgestone Arena, but he was excited to continue New York's hot goaltending of late, which saw a high point Thursday when Henrik Lundqvist made 41 saves to lead the Rangers to a 3-2 win against the Dallas Stars.

"I look at it as just me going out there and getting the chance to play again, try and do what [Lundqvist] did and give the team a chance to win," Talbot said Friday. "He did a heck of a job last night, and I'm going to go in there tomorrow and try to do the same."

Alfredsson out, Nyquist fills new role for Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings forward Daniel Alfredsson will miss his fifth straight game Saturday with a groin injury. His presence would have contributed in more ways than one when Detroit faces the Ottawa Senators, the team for whom Alfredsson played the previous 17 seasons.

In his absence, Gustav Nyquist has seized a prime opportunity to find a spot on the Red Wings roster. Playing his first game of the season after being called up from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League, Nyquist looked at home Thursday against the Carolina Hurricanes. On a line with fellow Swedes Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen, Nyquist scored two goals, including the game-winner, in a 4-3 win against the Hurricanes.

Alfredsson has played at times with Zetterberg and Franzen and was impressed by Nyquist's performance with his new linemates.

"[Gustav] is confident and poised with the puck. He's quick and makes good plays," Alfredsson said Saturday. "Playing with Z and Franzen, he fit in extremely well. He made plays and found open spots. You could tell he was excited. Playing the way he did, he brought energy and made plays."

Adam, McNabb to make season debuts for Sabres

Eight days after being hired as interim coach of the Buffalo Sabres, Ted Nolan is starting to put his imprint on the team, which has gone 1-2-0 since he took over.

Buffalo's roster shakeup started in earnest Tuesday when rookies Rasmus Ristolainen and Johan Larsson were assigned to the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League and Nikita Zadorov was returned to his junior team, the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.

The Sabres planned to send Mikhail Grigorenko to the AHL for a conditioning assignment, but it was rejected by the NHL so Grigorenko will be back in the lineup Thursday as the Sabres take on the Philadelphia Flyers.

He'll be joined by Luke Adam and Brayden McNabb, both of whom have previous NHL experience but will be making their season debuts for Buffalo on Thursday. Adam made his mark with the Sabres in 2011-12 when he had 10 goals and 20 points in 52 games, but played four games last season.

Nyquist up for Red Wings; Skinner back for Canes?

Gustav Nyquist, recalled Thursday by the Detroit Red Wings from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, will skate on the second line Thursday night against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes.

Nyquist is tied for fourth in the American Hockey League with 21 points in 15 games.

"It feels great, obviously, very excited to get in again [Thursday] and it's going to be a fun game to be a part of," Nyquist said. "I'm just going to try to play my game. We all know that we're in need of a win here as a team and obviously we've lost a few in a row up here and at home as well. So that's something we want to change."

Nyquist had three goals and three assists in 22 regular-season games in 2012-13, and two goals and three assists in 14 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
