Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Richards, now with their American Hockey League affiliate in Manchester, wasn't happy with his play in the NHL this season. He also said there is room for improvement after his first game with the Manchester Monarchs on Friday.

Richards, who was waived by the Kings earlier this week, cleared, and was sent to Manchester, was in the starting lineup and had two shots and two penalty minutes in a 3-1 victory against the Portland Pirates.

"I wasn’t great," Richards told Mayorsmanor.com. "I had some good shifts, did some good things, did some bad things, had some bad shifts. [You can] only go up from here."

Center Evgeni Malkin, who has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury, joined his teammates for practice for the first time following the All-Star break.

Malkin didn't participate in every drill, but did a majority of the work. He centered a line with Nick Spaling and Patric Hornqvist.

IGINLA RECORDS 1,200TH CAREER POINT IN WIN OVER PREDATORS

Jarome Iginla (1-0—1) recorded the 1,200th point of his NHL career in the Colorado Avalanche’s 3-0 shutout victory over the Nashville Predators. The Avalanche improved to 21-18-11 (53 points) this season and passed the idle Dallas Stars for sole possession of fifth in the Central Division standings. With the win, Colorado also extended their season-high home winning streak to four straight games and are 6-1-0 in their last seven games at Pepsi Center.

* With his team-leading 16th goal of the season, Iginla became the 47th player in NHL history to record 1,200 points (576-624—1,200) and tied Dino Ciccarelli for 46th on the NHL’s all-time points list. With 576 career goals, Iginla is also one shy of tying Mark Recchi for 19th on the NHL’s all-time goals list.

* Iginla has scored in three consecutive games and netted a team-high seven goals in the month of January. Additionally, Iginla has recorded 60 points (35-25—60) in 55 career games against Nashville and passed Nicklas Lidstrom for sole possession of second-most points all-time against the Predators franchise, trailing only Pavel Datsyuk (71 points).


Containing Ovechkin unique challenge for Canadiens

BROSSARD, Quebec -- When facing an elite scorer, a common last-gasp tactic is to hit him early, hit him hard, and hit him often.

Assuming you can catch him, the strategy should bear fruit as the star player will begin to wear down, and ultimately, or hopefully, become a little tentative to go to the areas of the ice where he can hurt you.

As the Montreal Canadiens prepare to face Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals at Bell Centre on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; NHLN-US, SN), they know that is not an approach that will slow down the hottest goal scorer in the NHL.

The problem with hitting Ovechkin is not catching him; it's avoiding hurting yourself while doing it.

"I've lined up beside him a few times," Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher said after practice Friday. "I actually tried to hit him a couple of times. That didn't go well."
