Frans skates; Rick DiPietro makes next step

 Frans Nielsen, who injured his right  knee during training camp, skated lightly for the first time since undergoing an arthroscopic procedure two weeks ago.

Rick DiPietro also made his next step, simulating game-like situations (scrambling, shot-and-rebound) while facing shots in practice today.

Also, Blake Comeau and Doug Weight will play in Ottawa on Thursday.
