Brad Richards did not skate for a second straight day on Monday because of the flu.
However, coach John Tortorella isn't concerned that Richards is missing time to mesh with new linemate Rick Nash. "Richie knows our concept," Tortorella said. "He was one of the guys who spent a lot of time during the lockout taking care of his business, his conditioning. Do we want him here? Yes. Is it a major concern? No."
