Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis was taken to the hospital as a precaution Friday prior to the game against the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place.

The Penguins said he experienced symptoms that may or may not be related to his blood clot history.

"We've said all along that Pascal's health is the highest priority," general manager Jim Rutherford told the Penguins website. "We will take every precaution necessary to ensure he is in good health."

Rutherford told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that tests on Dupuis were negative but he will not play Saturday at the Calgary Flames.

TORONTO -- Detroit Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg scored his 300th NHL goal in the first period against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Friday.

Zetterberg took the puck in the neutral zone and his long shot was mishandled by Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer for a goal at 16:21.

"I think I'll remember this one," Zetterberg said. "I just tried to get it on net, and to be honest I don't really know how it went in. It was a good dump. I just tried to use the defenseman as a screen and get it on net. I don't think I actually got it on net. It was a little bit wide, but I think it must have hit his pad and went in."

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf will return to the lineup Friday against the Columbus Blue Jackets (10 p.m. ET; FS-O, PRIME, FS-SD) after missing four games to recover from a non-emergency appendectomy.

He had surgery Oct. 28 and has been on track with meeting the necessary benchmarks in order to return. He participated fully in the morning skate Friday, centering the top line with left wing Patrick Maroon and right wing Corey Perry.

Getzlaf said he has some discomfort but that it's nothing severe enough to limit him on the ice.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane, who Thursday learned he would not face charges for an August incident at his house in Hamburg, N.Y., met with the media Friday following the Blackhawks morning skate at Prudential Center.

Chicago plays the New Jersey Devils on Friday (7 p.m. ET; CSN-CH, MSG+).

"When you go through something like this you realize who your close friends are and your supporters, and the Blackhawks have been great to me," Kane said. "I appreciate all the support. It's meant a lot. The fans treat it like business as usual and I commend the coaches in keeping things as normal as possible.

"I'm happy I'm playing hockey and happy to be here [with the team]. Obviously to play another game [Friday] is a good feeling."

CANADIENS REBOUND AT BELL CENTRE, CONTINUE RECORD-SETTING START

The Montreal Canadiens scored three goals in the final period to defeat the New York Islanders 4-1, bouncing back from their first loss on home ice (in overtime vs. the Ottawa Senators) and improving to 6-0-1 at Bell Centre in 2015-16.

* Via the Elias Sports Bureau, the Canadiens (12-2-1, 25 points) have won at least 12 of their first 15 games in a season for the first time in their 98-year NHL history.

* Elias adds that the Canadiens have earned points in each of their first seven home games of a season for the first time since 1994-95 (5-0-2).

* Making his fourth consecutive start, Mike Condon (17 saves) improved to 5-0-1 in his first six NHL appearances (1.50 goals-against average, .941 save percentage). Elias says Condon is the second goaltender in franchise history to earn points in each of his first six career games, with all games played in one season. The other to accomplish the feat in one season: Bill Durnan from Oct. 30 to Nov. 21, 1943 (10 GP).
