Ryan Getzlaf missed the game last night as his wife gave birth. Good for them but this really could have been more convenient for my fantasy team.
Nicklas Backstrom apparently has a fractures thumb but isn't expected to miss anytime. He's never missed an NHL game in his career.
Valtteri Filppula is expected to return to the lineup either tonight or Saturday. Wait to see him in the lineup before activating him.
Saku Koivu didn't play last night as he tweaked his groin. It's currently a Koivu-free NHL.
Scottie Upshall missed last night game due to a suspension for a hit on Tuesday night. He'll miss one more game.
Patrick Eaves should be out of action a week.
Returning to action: Marco Sturm
