Alexey Marchenko (shoulder) took part in some of Wednesday's practice.
"It's feeling better, I can shoot," Marchenko said. "But right now, no contact. I go day-by-day. I hope it's going to feel better tomorrow, and then step-by-step. I need to get back the strength of the shoulder. It's not there, but it's getting better. So get back strength, and we will see how I can feel the pressure, feel I can hit and make contact." He has been sidelined since Nov. 20 with a sprained right AC joint. Dec 1 - 7:35 AM
