Great news here as Pavel Datsyuk (knee surgery) says he's good to go and will be in the lineup tonight. He hasn't played since February 19th.
Encouraging news here as Nicklas Backstrom has been practicing for the last three days. No word yet of a potential return date, but the idea of him coming back this season seems like a real possibility.
Johan Franzen has a back injury and is questionable for tonight's game.
Jeff Skinner was suspended two games by the NHL for kicking. The kick didn't really look malicious but doing it in the first place was just stupid. Just when he was hot, too.
Zach Bogosian was held out of the lineup again last night with a wrist injury. He's day to day.
I missed this yesterday but Andy McDonald is considered week to week after going down awkwardly and hurting his shoulder. I guess this is better than a concussion.
Paul Gaustad will sit out tonight's game with a UBI.
Henrik Lundqvist is apparently feeling better from the flu he had and is expected to start tonight.
Travis Zajac was a participant in a full practice yesterday so he could be getting into a game this week. I wouldn't be running to grab him in any league just yet. He looked pretty bad the last time he returned from injury this season.
