Elias, Gionta back at practice for Devils
New Jersey Devils forwards Patrik Elias and Stephen Gionta returned to practice Thursday with the intention of playing against the Los Angeles Kings at Prudential Center on Friday.

New Jersey Devils forwards Patrik Elias and Stephen Gionta returned to practice Thursday with the intention of playing against the Los Angeles Kings at Prudential Center on Friday.

Tom Gulitti of The (Bergen) Record reported the news via his Twitter account.

Elias has missed the past six games with an upper-body injury and Gionta has missed the past two games with a sore foot. With Elias and Gionta back, The Record reported that Mattias Tedenby and Jacob Josefson were the extra forwards at practice.

Defenseman Anton Volchenkov, who pulled a leg muscle in the first period in a win against the New York Rangers on Tuesday, did not practice on Thursday.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
