Rangers' Nash skates with contact at practice

New York Rangers All-Star wing Rick Nash skated Friday without a no-contact jersey, his first full-contact practice since suffering a concussion on Oct. 8 that has forced him to miss 15 games.

No word has been given regarding when Nash might return to the New York lineup, but he skated with the second power-play unit as well as on the Rangers' fourth defensive pairing alongside Michael Del Zotto, who will be a healthy scratch for New York's game against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Center Dominic Moore, who has missed seven games with a strained oblique muscle, will return to the lineup Saturday against the Canadiens and Nash will travel with the Rangers to Montreal, marking his first team trip since sustaining his head injury. With Moore back in the lineup, Brandon Mashinter will be a healthy scratch. Justin Falk will make his fourth appearance of the season, his first since Oct. 19, replacing Del Zotto.

Red Wings' Eaves clears waivers, assigned to AHL

The Detroit Red Wings announced Friday on Twitter that forward Patrick Eaves has cleared waivers and will be assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League. Eaves was waived Thursday in an effort to provide cap relief.

Eaves was in his fifth season in Detroit after stints with the Ottawa Senators and Carolina Hurricanes. The Red Wings also sent forward Jordin Tootoo to the AHL this week.

After starting the season with an injury, Eaves has only played in three games in 2013-14, collecting no points and averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per game.

Devils' Elias expects to play vs. Kings

NEWARK, N.J. -- Even though New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer called it a game-time decision, Devils forward Patrik Elias said he expects to be back in the lineup Friday against the Los Angeles Kings after missing the past six games because of back spasms.

Elias hasn't played since Oct. 29 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. He has seven points in 10 games this season.

Elias admitted that his back "still bothers me, but not to the point where I'll sit out."

Stephen Gionta also said he's good to go for the game against the Kings. He's missed the past two games with a sore foot.

Quote of the Day

Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
