Lucic continues to progress

Milan Lucic made it through his first practice without any setbacks to his finger. Lucic took shots, including a half-slapper, but has yet to be cleared for all-out slap shots or body contact.

Lucic is not traveling with the team to Pittsburgh. GM Peter Chiarelli said a possible return date could be next week against Atlanta or Buffalo.

* Mark Recchi was given a personal day.
