DALLAS -- As one of two NHL players born in France, Antoine Roussel wanted to show support for his home nation after the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday.

So, he placed stickers of the French flag on the back of his helmet and on his stick for the Dallas Stars' 3-2 overtime win against the Minnesota Wild at American Airlines Center on Saturday. Roussel was joined in the gesture by several of his teammates, including defenseman Jason Demers, who grew up near Montreal and speaks fluent French.

"The boys played really hard," Roussel said. "They were committed to that, and I really appreciate that from them. It was huge."

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils left wing Patrik Elias practiced Saturday for the first time since sustaining a knee injury during training camp.

"Some guys were asking, 'Who's this old guy coming out with us?'" Elias said.

The Devils play the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; ROOT, MSG+). Though Elias, 39, said he feels good, it may take some time before he is in game shape.

"I've been working for a few weeks now, mainly on conditioning and getting the strength back," Elias said. "Then recently I've been picking it up to get some hockey stuff in. This week I've been working with the skills coach, Pertti Hasanen, and it's been great. It's something new to me and it's been hard, but it helps."

Devils' Zajac emerging as two-way threat under Hynes

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils center Travis Zajac has relished his role as a dual threat this season under the direction of first-year coach John Hynes.

Not that Zajac, 30, didn't serve that all-purpose role in his previous nine seasons with the Devils, but there's something different about him these days.

Zajac not only ranks among the top five in the NHL in shooting percentage with six goals on 21 shots (28.6 percent), but he's on pace to surpass his career-high of 25 goals set during the 2009-10 season.
