EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New Jersey Devils are likely to have their captain back for Game 2 against the Ottawa Senators.

A fever-free Patrik Elias skated during an optional workout for New Jersey on Friday and plans to be in the lineup Saturday night at the Continental Airlines Arena in what shapes up as a must-game for New Jersey.

The Devils' captain missed the team's 5-4 loss to Ottawa on Thursday night, sweating out the final symptoms of a flu bug that has drained him since last Saturday.

Devils coach Lou Lamoriello had said that Elias was fighting a lingering cold.

''I feel fine today,'' Elias said after skating for about 35 minutes at the Codey Arena in West Orange, N.J. ''Obviously I am a little tired after four days of not skating, but I feel good enough to play now.''
