Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser could return to play Saturday, earlier than his expected recovery from a foot injury, coach Jeff Blashill said Wednesday.

DeKeyser was injured in a preseason game Sept. 30 and the prognosis was he would miss 3-4 weeks with sprained ligaments in his left foot. Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens would be two weeks; Detroit also plays Friday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

"There was some swelling after, but we just did the stuff that you would try to do to heal up a sprained ankle, icing and some acupuncture and stuff like that," DeKeyser told the Red Wings website. "I did some battling stuff out there today and so far it's felt good, no issues with it."

"We didn't practice him … just precautionary-wise," Hitchcock said. "But we'll see here in the next few days how he turns out."

WASHINGTON -- Washington Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom has been medically cleared for contact but will not play Thursday against the Chicago Blackhawks.

"It's probably going to be day-to-day," coach Barry Trotz said Wednesday. "He got bumped a little bit today and we'll see how he feels tomorrow and we'll just sort of take it day by day."

Backstrom is recovering from offseason hip surgery.

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was scratched Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks because he overslept and was late for the morning skate.

Washington lost 5-0 to the Sharks at Verizon Center. Ovechkin has missed only 23 games since the beginning of his NHL career in 2005. For the fifth time during their NHL careers, the Capitals played without the services of Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, who has been cleared for contact.

"I just messed up with my alarm clock; put 8:30 p.m., not a.m.," Ovechkin said Wednesday. "I fell asleep. I make mistakes and that's why (he didn't play). It's the team rules."

Coach Barry Trotz said he talked to Ovechkin later Tuesday morning and told him that he would not play against San Jose.

Fantasy top 60 defensemen: Zidlicky leads Islanders

Wednesday, 10.14.2015 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey contributor Brian Metzer provides in-depth defenseman analysis. From updated weekly top 60 rankings to trending players and more, Metzer is your go-to guy for fantasy D-men advice all season long.


Marek Zidlicky had options for this season, but the 12-year-veteran didn't take the first or even the second offer that came along during unrestricted free agency.

That patience could have been detrimental, but it finally paid off when Garth Snow and the New York Islanders offered a one-year contract and another chance to chase a Stanley Cup.

"I'm happy I can play one more year and we'll see after that what happens," Zidlicky told NorthJersey.com upon signing his contract late in September. "I said right away after the season it could be possible I will retire or we will see. You never know. It's tough for everybody. It doesn't matter if you are 38 or 28. That's the business right now."

Blackhawks visit Flyers on Wednesday Night Rivalry

Wednesday, 10.14.2015 / 10:54 AM / Tale of the Tape

NHL.com

The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup at Wells Fargo Center five years ago, but they'll try to end a regular-season victory drought of nearly 19 years when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).

The Blackhawks ended a 49-year Cup drought when they defeated the Flyers in overtime of Game 6 in the 2010 Final. However, they are winless in 11 regular-season games in Philadelphia since a 4-1 victory on Nov. 9, 1996. In all, the Flyers are 40-16-11 against the Blackhawks at home during the regular season since entering the NHL in 1967.

Defenseman Kimmo Timonen, a member of Chicago's Stanley Cup-winning team from last spring, is being honored by the Flyers before the game. Timonen was traded to Chicago on Feb. 27, and he played his final NHL game in the Blackhawks' Cup-clinching Game 6 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Timonen was also part of the Flyers' team that lost to Chicago in the 2010 Final.

McDAVID NETS FIRST GOAL, BUT SPEZZA TRICKS OILERS

Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, scored his first NHL goal (3 GP), but Jason Spezza scored twice in the third period to complete his sixth career hat trick and lead the Dallas Stars to a 4-2 victory.

* At 18 years, 273 days, McDavid became the sixth-youngest player in Oilers history to score his first NHL goal (tied with Marc Habscheid: Nov. 29, 1981 at WPG). The only players younger than McDavid at the time of their first goal with the club: Sam Gagner (18 years, 71 days), Martin Gelinas (18 years, 134 days), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (18 years, 180 days), Wayne Gretzky (18 years, 261 days) and Mark Messier (18 years, 268 days).

* McDavid's goal came in his third career game, a mark also hit by Gretzky (Oct. 14, 1979 vs. VAN) and the Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby (Oct. 8, 2005 vs. BOS).

* Spezza had his first hat trick since Oct. 15, 2013 at PHX (w/ OTT). He fired eight shots on goal, one shy of his career high established Dec. 14, 2013 vs. LAK (w/ OTT).

Blackhawks' Teravainen looks to carve permanent role

Wednesday, 10.14.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks needed someone to break the ice.

Trailing the Tampa Bay Lightning 1-0 late in Game 1 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final, it was starting to look like goalie Ben Bishop would lead the Lightning to a shutout at Amalie Arena.

Instead, in a flash, a 20-year old Finnish rookie changed the script. Teuvo Teravainen, Chicago's baby-faced forward, scored the tying goal and then followed it with a defensive play that led directly to the eventual game-winner scored by Antoine Vermette, all in a 1:58 span.

Asked about the diminutive Teravainen (5-foot-11, 178 pounds) after the Blackhawks won 2-1, right wing Marian Hossa delivered a quote that went viral.

"He doesn't have a heartbeat," said Hossa, a veteran of 18 NHL seasons. "He's so calm. He's Finnish cold."
