DETROIT, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Jiri Fischer appeared healthy Tuesday night, scoring the decisive goal early in the second period as the Detroit Red Wings posted a 3-2 preseason victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Fischer, a 22-year-old defenseman, recently was diagnosed with a thickening of the heart after tests came up abnormal. He returned to practice Saturday and gave the Red Wings a 3-0 lead 2:44 into the second period.
Defenseman Tomas Kaberle and Robert Reichel scored power-play goals in the final nine minutes for Toronto. The Maple Leafs went 2-for-8 with the extra man. Detroit was 1-for-5.
