Blackhawks' Keith skates for first time since surgery

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Duncan Keith, the Chicago Blackhawks' top defenseman and reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner, skated during a full team workout for the first time since having surgery Oct. 20 to repair a torn right meniscus.

Keith skated the previous couple days with other Blackhawks making their way back from injuries.

"I'm feeling good," said Keith, who had two assists in six games before the surgery. "Obviously I don't think the leg is as strong as it needs to be, but I definitely feel pretty good for not skating [in a few weeks]. Trainers have helped a lot in preparing to get on the ice. It's a quick turnaround. I try to do a lot of different things to be ready to go, so hopefully it can happen sooner."

* Nicklas Backstrom tied the game with 1.7 seconds left in regulation and Alex Ovechkin tallied the lone shootout goal to help the Washington Capitals (10-3-0, 20 points) equal the best 13-game start to a season in franchise history (1991-92: 10-3-0, 20 points).

* David Desharnais broke a 2-2 deadlock with 1:08 left on the clock – his second consecutive game-winning goal – to rally the Montreal Canadiens past the Boston Bruins for their League-leading 13th win of the season, continuing their best start in their 98-year NHL history.

Sunday, 11.08.2015 / 12:28 AM / News

Katie Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

WASHINGTON -- Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin scored his 483rd NHL goal Saturday to tie Sergei Fedorov for the most by a Russian-born player.

He almost passed him.

Ovechkin scored a third-period goal that would have tied the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs but it was disallowed after a coach's challenge for goaltender interference.

"Still have one to pass the tie," Ovechkin said. "If not today, tomorrow."

Actually Tuesday, when the Capitals next play at the Detroit Red Wings, where Fedorov spent much of his career (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, FS-D, CSN-DC+).

Washington center Nicklas Backstrom tied the game Saturday with 0.8 seconds remaining in the third. Ovechkin scored in the fourth round of the shootout, and the Capitals defeated the Maple Leafs 3-2 at Verizon Center.

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise has a sprained MCL in his right knee and his return will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis, the Wild announced Saturday.

"I think it's great news. He'll be out a few weeks but all things considered, in terms of knee injuries, it's best-case scenario," Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said. "It's certainly not months but it's not days. He'll be out this week but next week we'll have a better feel for how the recovery is going."
