"When you haven't done much in the last couple of weeks, it's more about timing, and that's what we tried to do at the end of practice."
-- Claude Julien on Phil Kessel
In the way of happy news, the appearance of forwards
at yesterday's practice in Wilmington represented yet another ray of hope for the once depleted
Ryder returned, participated in the whole practice, and said he felt much better after dealing with flu-like symptoms.
Kessel, who often wore a large smile as he worked through his drills, looked very sharp during the main session of practice and afterward, when he worked closely with the B's coaching staff.
