Red Wings' Datsyuk could return Wednesday

Tuesday, 04.01.2014 / 2:35 PM / News


Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk said he could return to the lineup Wednesday against the Boston Bruins (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS).

An injury to his left knee has kept Datsyuk out of the lineup since Feb. 27, and the Red Wings shut him down completely March 5 to allow inflammation in the knee to subside. Tuesday he took part in his first full practice in a month. Though he didn't take part in line rushes or power-play drills, Datsyuk told reporters in Detroit he was encouraged by how the session went.

"I'm happy to be back with the team," Datsyuk said. "I need a little more time to pick up the pace, pick up everything. I can do full skates, lots of things that they do that I cannot do before, that's why I take three weeks [off]."

Nolan loses interim tag, signs extension with Sabres

Monday, 03.31.2014 / 3:46 PM / News

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- Ted Nolan's return to the Buffalo Sabres is complete; now he's tasked with guiding the franchise through a rebuild.

The Sabres announced Monday they have removed the interim tag from Nolan and signed him to a three-year contract extension to be the full-time coach.

"I'm really excited about going with the next step forward and helping shape this team into a very competitive team and a team that will hopefully one day battle for a championship," Nolan said at a press conference announcing his extension.

Nolan was named interim coach Nov. 13 following the firing of coach Ron Rolston and general manager Darcy Regier. Current Sabres general manager Tim Murray said Nolan has proven to be the best man for the job.

"He's been in a lot of situations here that haven't been great," Murray said. "A lot of nights I've liked the way our team competed. We have to get him better players. Some games that we hang on and get a shootout loss or something like that, I think with better players and the way he coaches we'll get a better result. In trying times I've liked a lot of what I've seen."

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
