Brad Richards (flu) skated on his own at the Rangers' practice facility on Wednesday.

He missed the first three days of training camp with the flu and didn't skate with his teammates because they were doing off-ice work. "Obviously, I would have liked to have been here the last three days but there's only so much you're going to get out of practice, anyway," Richards said. "In the big scheme of things, three days is probably not going to make a big difference." He should be fine now to skate on Thursday with his teammates and finally get some work in with new linemate Rick Nash.
