NHL notebook: Diaz makes debut for Rangers

Penguins/NHL Videos

Saturday, March 22, 2014, 10:51 p.m.
 

New York Rangers defenseman John Moore sat out Saturday night's game against the Devils because of concussion-like symptoms.

Moore, who had missed only two games this season, was hurt Friday night at Columbus when Blue Jackets forward Blake Comeau knocked him headfirst into the boards in the first period. He sat out the rest of the period, returned in the second and didn't play in the third.

Raphael Diaz, acquired from Vancouver at the trade deadline, was in the Rangers' lineup for the first time since the deal.

Moore has three goals and 10 assists. Diaz, who was traded by Montreal to Vancouver in February, had one goal and 12 assists before Saturday's game.

• The Kings' Mike Richards, who had been practicing with the team's fourth line, got his first point in seven games against the Panthers. He has just 10 goals and 40 points in 71 games this season. Kings coach Darryl Sutter said he needs Richards to continue to bounce back if the Kings are going to be successful in the playoffs.
