T.J. Oshie returned to practice Friday morning and after a bit of an injury scare against New Jersey. In the third period of Wednesday’s 4-1 defeat, Oshie was knocked down near the net by Devils defenseman John Moore. Oshie got up, raced across the ice and slammed into the boards as he lined up a New Jersey player. He then gingerly made his way off the ice. Oshie was checked out by an athletic trainer on the bench and did not finish the game as a precaution. It’s not clear what was ailing Oshie but he felt good enough to participate in Friday's morning skate and then go through some additional on-ice work with the players who aren’t suiting up at PNC Arena in Raleigh. Oshie was not scheduled to play against the Canes, anyway, Coach Barry Trotz said.
