Carter not joining Devils on trip to Washington

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils forward Ryan Carter will not make the trip with the team for the its back-to-back road contests with the Washington Capitals on Thursday and Saturday.

Carter was involved in a collision during Monday afternoon's home game with the Ottawa Senators that left him with a head injury. He won't be available in either of the next two games; the team will not return home on the day in between the two games in Washington.

At practice Wednesday, rookie Stefan Matteau took Carter's place on the team's third line with Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier.

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.

Prust returns to Garden with Canadiens

NEW YORK – When Brandon Prust joined the New York Rangers from the Calgary Flames in January 2010, he wasn’t much more than a player who would drop the gloves and spend most of a game glued to the bench in a strict enforcer role.

That changed under Rangers coach John Tortorella, who employed him as a checking-line wingr and penalty-killing specialist. Prust also fought more than anyone in the NHL last season, and it resulted in him being rewarded with a four-year, $10 million contract by the Montreal Canadiens in July.

Prust wasn’t looking to leave as a free agent, but the Canadiens made an offer he couldn’t refuse.

“Well, to have some teams come at you like Montreal did, it’s definitely flattering, and I think it was good for me to also set a precedent for players like me and how important we can be to teams.” Prust told reporters at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night with the Canadiens paying a visit to the Rangers. “That was something I was happy to do as well, you know? Sometimes players like me are maybe overlooked or not looked at as an important piece to the puzzle, but it was something I wanted to prove and wanted to show."

Ducks send Deslauriers, Guenin to minor leagues

The Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday sent defenseman Nate Guenin to Norfolk of the American Hockey League and goaltender Jeff Deslauriers to Fort Wayne of the ECHL.

The Deslauriers move comes a day after Jonas Hiller was able to return to the lineup after missing 10 days with a lower-body injury. He stopped 25 of 27 shots in a 3-2 win Monday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Deslauriers spent four games as the backup to Viktor Fasth.

Guenin was a healthy scratch in four games after being recalled Feb. 11.

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.

Emery hoping to continue home win streak

CHICAGO -- Ray Emery has his own streak going at United Center at the same time the Chicago Blackhawks are in position to tie the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks for the NHL record of 16 consecutive games to start a season without a regulation loss.

Since coming to Chicago in 2011-12, Emery has yet to lose a game in regulation at United Center – he's 11-0-3 in the building as a Blackhawks goalie after backstopping a 3-2 win Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings.

What's his secret?

"The team that's in front of [me]," said Emery, who will face the Vancouver Canucks at home Tuesday after stopping 25 of 27 shots on against the Kings on Sunday. "It's a pretty good squad. You always want to play well at home. It's probably a bit of luck that it's turned out that way, but with a team like this … some nights it's hard to lose with a group like that."

Booth back in the lineup for Canucks

CHICAGO -- David Booth will play his first game Tuesday since last season's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

After a preseason groin injury during on-ice testing caused him to miss the first 14 regular-season games, Booth will get back to playing games when the Vancouver Canucks face the rival Chicago Blackhawks at United Center -- a game in which the home team is vying to tie the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks for the NHL record of 16 consecutive games with at least a point earned to start a season.

"It's definitely an exciting time and an exciting game [to return]," Booth said. "I'm glad it worked out to be this game."

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
