Nielsen admits to 'butterflies' for 1st game vs. Islanders

NEW YORK (AP) Frans Nielsen admitted he'll have "some butterflies" when he faces the New York Islanders for the first time since leaving for Detroit as a free agent last summer.

"For sure it's not going to be just another game," Nielsen said Sunday about three hours before the Red Wings faced the Islanders at Barclays Center. "There's going to be some butterflies for me and some nerves. Hopefully it just gonna take a couple of shifts and I can relax and play my game."

There were about a dozen signs held by fans near the ice welcoming Nielsen back during warmups and he received some applause from the crowd when his name was called during the announcement of the Red Wings' starters. Nielsen also got an ovation during a video tribute about eight minutes into the first period.
