Carolina Hurricanes center Eric Staal practiced Sunday for the first time since leaving a game Jan. 4 against the New York Islanders with a lower-body injury.

Prior to the injury, the Hurricanes' captain had played in 191 consecutive games since Feb. 26, 2011. He has missed just 15 games because of injury in 10 NHL seasons, including 10 in 2009-10.

"I'm feeling good now, and it's getting better," Staal told reporters. "I would be completely ineffective if I would have stayed trying to get it done. I tried. A huge part of my game is skating and using my power, speed and size. With what I had going on, I wasn't able to do that.

Red Wings' Howard injured in win vs. Kings

LOS ANGELES -- Add goalie Jimmy Howard to the list of injured Detroit Red Wings.

Howard hurt his hip during a 44-save win against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night and won't be available Sunday against the Anaheim Ducks and possibly for longer, coach Mike Babcock said.

"Hurt his hip flexor," Babcock said. "He's out."

Asked during a television interview if Howard is out for a while, Babcock replied, "I don't know. You know how it is here."

Petr Mrazek will start in goal Sunday for Detroit, and Babcock wasn't sure if Jonas Gustavsson was fit to be the backup.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
