Mike Green: That Shanahan is a real asshole.
Missed this yesterday but Steve Ott sat out of Thursday's game with back spasms. He's questionable to play tonight.
Thomas Vanek may miss tonight's game after he took a hard hit from Johnny Boychuk on Thursday. He's reportedly dealing with soreness.
Sheldon Souray won't play in tonight's game with a LBI.
Tuomo Ruutu practiced yesterday and should be good to go to play in tonight's game.
David Desharnais couldn't practice yesterday and won't play tonight.
I read something on Twitter about Nicklas Lidstrom still not being able to push off. Then I also heard that he's on track to return next week. Somehow these reports seem conflicting, but maybe that's just me.
Dustin Byfuglien was supposed to miss last night's game with an undisclosed injury but he played over 27 minutes so I'd say he's fine.
Brandon Dubinsky had to sit out again last night with his sinus / hand injuries. This is hardly fantasy hockey news as he's been dreadful.
Returning to action last night: Niklas Hjalmarsson
