Dan Hamhuis was introduced to the crowd here early in the first period and he waved amicably to his many fans.

And it turns out he had reason to be feeling chipper. Hamhuis said Tuesday night he feels "fine," has no particular symptoms and is not in the least bit sensitive to light.

"I feel fine, and I'm hoping for a quick recovery," he said before taking his seat to watch his teammates play the Predators for the fourth time this season.
