Defenseman Frederic Allard made his NHL debut Saturday. Allard was on the ice for 16:59 of action and had a blocked shot. "That was awesome," teammate Alexandre Carrier said of seeing Allard play in the NHL. "He's one of my best buddies. We were together for a few seasons in Milwaukee, we're really close, so I was really excited for him. I was really excited for him and to be there, to play on the same lineup with him for his first game. He played well as well, so I'm really happy for him."

Nikita Kucherov (hip) remains on track to return to the Tampa Bay Lightning for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Kucherov resumed skating this week and he took part in the team's morning skate on Saturday. "[Kucherov] is a big part of our team, so anytime we can have him around it's great for us," coach Jon Cooper said. "Especially coming off that road trip and being able to see that, 'Hey, progress is being made.' He's starting to feel a little bit better. Is he far away from doing the things he usually does out there? Yes, but just to have him with the guys ... that's why we have a close group. Everyone loves being around each other."
