"It's nice to get back out there," Fisher said. "It's only going to get better as I get comfortable in the games. Overall, anytime you win it's a good thing, and my foot felt pretty good."
Coach Peter Laviolette said the plan was to ease Fisher back into the lineup, starting with the Edmonton game. Fisher centered a line with Derek Roy and Olli Jokinen on the wings, and played only during 5-on-5 against the Oilers.
"I thought he looked good - he went out early, and got some hits and had some contact," Laviolette said. "He had a couple of shifts where he's banging around in the crease and searching for goals."
"I've been battling pretty hard the last two weeks testing it," Fisher said. "I'm probably going to get soreness here and there throughout the year, but that's going to be part of it."
