DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green misses his old teammates and friends but he has moved on.

After spending the first 10 seasons of his career with the Washington Capitals, Green signed a three-year, $18 million contract with Detroit on July 1.

He will face his former team for the first time Tuesday when the Red Wings play the Capitals at Joe Louis Arena (7:30 p.m., TVAS, FS-D, CSN+).

"I was there a long time and obviously, sometimes change is good. I felt I was becoming a little bit stagnant there, so I wanted to evolve," Green said Monday. "And I felt that coming here would be the best thing for that. It was difficult, a lot of friendships there. Obviously there will be friends on the ice [Tuesday].

"It'll be strange, but I've moved forward now. I think it's more exciting than anything. I know the personality in the dressing room and how most of these guys play, so it will be fun. But it will be fun because we're competing."

Penguins' Dupuis practices, could play Wednesday

Monday, 11.09.2015 / 7:07 PM / News

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis practiced Monday after missing two games as a precaution when he experienced symptoms that may or may not be related to his blood clot history.

Coach Mike Johnston told the Penguins website that Dupuis had tests Monday morning and was cleared to practice. Dupuis is confident he'll be able to play Wednesday against the Montreal Canadiens at Consol Energy Center (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, RDS).

"There is one more (test) tomorrow," Dupuis told the Penguins website. "But I should be all good to go. Everything went well this morning. We got everything done before practice. I got a chance to get out there and skate."

Red Wings' Howard practices one day after collision

DETROIT – Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard practiced Monday at Joe Louis Arena and said he was fine one day after taking an accidental knee to the head from Dallas Stars forward Jason Spezza during a goal-mouth scramble.

Howard said in addition to the usual concern when a player is hit in the head, he also had an issue with his contact lens as a result of the blow. Following the hit, he was unable to get his contacts to come into focus.

"I think it was a little bit of both," Howard said. "They wanted to take ... everything now is so cautious when you take hits to the head. I just came in here and they asked me some questions and I passed everything. Then I switched my contacts out and then I wanted to go back in and they said no."

Review of rule changes on docket for GM meetings

TORONTO -- The effects of the new 3-on-3 overtime format and the impact of the newly instituted coach's challenge will be reviewed Tuesday when the NHL general managers convene for their annual November meeting.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the reviews of the new policies are procedural.

"In the normal course [when] you make significant rule changes like the 3-on-3 in overtime and the coach's challenge, you're going to review their operation to date," Daly said. "I don't think it's anything other than that. Somebody asked me whether it's possible that there could be some modifications to either of those rules coming out of this meeting? I would say categorically not. These rules are the way they're going to be at least for the balance of the season. I don't think there's been any unintended consequences for the rules. And I think they've operated as we've expected they'd operate."

Daly, however, said there could be a change in the League's coach and executive compensation policy, which was put in place Jan. 1 for teams to receive compensation in the form of draft picks when executives and coaches under contract leave to go to a different organization.

Canadiens' Price has follow-up visit; update Tuesday

Monday, 11.09.2015 / 3:00 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

BROSSARD, Quebec -- It doesn't appear Carey Price will be back in the Montreal Canadiens net any time soon.

Nor does it appear to be a very big deal in Montreal.

Price left town Monday for a follow-up medical visit on his lower-body injury and was expected to be back in Montreal later the same day.

The Canadiens would not say where Price went or who he was going to see, but he is unlikely to be ready in time for Montreal's next game Wednesday at the Pittsburgh Penguins considering he has not skated with the team since the injury was announced Nov. 1. Price's status will be updated by coach Michel Therrien on Tuesday prior to the Canadiens' departure for Pittsburgh.

Analyzing Ovechkin's greatness as goal marks near

Monday, 11.09.2015 / 2:00 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is on the verge of reaching two milestones that have seemed inevitable since he burst onto the NHL scene with a dominant 52-goal showing as a rookie a decade ago.

Ovechkin has tied the record for most goals scored by a Russian in the NHL and will break the mark he shares with Sergei Fedorov with his next goal. Ovechkin's first chance to break the record arrives Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Sergei Fedorov Night (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, CSN-DC+, FS-D).

Ovechkin has 483 goals in 772 games. Fedorov scored his record total in 1,248 games.

Ovechkin is also 17 goals away from becoming a member of the 500-goal club. There are 42 players in NHL history who have scored 500 goals. The only active player closer than Ovechkin is Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa, who has 487 goals in 1,184 games.

If Ovechkin scores his 500th goal this season, he will be the fifth-fastest player to reach 500 goals in NHL history. Wayne Gretzky (575 games), Mario Lemieux (605), Mike Bossy (647) and Brett Hull (693) are the only players to score 500 goals in fewer than 700 games.

Rangers forward Nash 'good to go' for return Tuesday

Monday, 11.09.2015 / 1:58 PM / News

New York Rangers forward Rick Nash will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Carolina Hurricanes, coach Alain Vigneault said Monday.

"He told me he was good to go, so we're going to play him," Vigneault said in comments tweeted by the Rangers.

Nash practiced Monday with linemates Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello after missing games against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday and Arizona Coyotes on Saturday with back tightness. He sustained a back injury during a shootout drill at practice Thursday.

Lightning's Palat out 3-5 weeks with lower-body injury

Monday, 11.09.2015 / 1:40 PM / News

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ondrej Palat will miss 3-5 weeks with a lower-body injury.

Palat, who wore a brace around his left ankle Monday, told the Tampa Bay Times he will not need surgery.

"It [stinks] to be injured, not play and not help the guys," Palat said in comments tweeted by the Lightning.

Palat left a 1-0 loss to the Minnesota Wild in the second period Saturday and did not return. During a play by the Minnesota net, Wild forward Nino Niederreiter fell on Palat's left leg.

Bettman: No expansion vote at next board meeting

Monday, 11.09.2015 / 12:24 PM / News

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

TORONTO -- The NHL's Board of Governors will not conduct a vote on expansion when they convene for two days of meetings next month in Pebble Beach, Calif., Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday from the PrimeTime Sports Management Conference and Trade Show.

The NHL is currently considering applications for expansion from potential ownership groups in Las Vegas and Quebec City. Those groups presented proposals to the executive committee of the Board of Governors in September.

The Board of Governors will meet Dec. 7-8. The executive committee is scheduled to discuss the proposals in detail Dec. 7.

Bettman: Decision on 2018 Olympics on horizon

Monday, 11.09.2015 / 12:12 PM / News

TORONTO -- A decision on the participation of the NHL and its players in the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics could come within the year, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday from the PrimeTime Sports Management Conference and Trade Show.

Commissioner Bettman added the League has to weigh the potential benefits of also committing to the 2022 Beijing Olympics into its decision on the 2018 Olympics because of the potential windfall of marketing and growth the game and League could experience in China.

"The question is would the fact that the Winter Olympics in Beijing introduce that country to hockey and give us an opportunity to make a real impression in China, where hockey is really in an embryonic state?" Commissioner Bettman said. "That's a discussion we have to have to determine whether or not there is an opportunity to grow the game in China by using the Winter Games with NHL players as a catalyst. That's the question. I don't know the answer."
