Get well soon, King!
Get well soon, King!

The Bruins reported that Nathan Horton has not even skated since he suffered a setback in his recovery from a concussion.

Craig Anderson was a full participant in practice with the Senators yesterday. His return is nearing. Sucks for Ben Bishop owners.

Hold your breath as we should know today sometime if Pavel Datsyuk has been cleared to play tomorrow.

Niklas Backstrom practiced yesterday and should be ready to return and play on Saturday.

Mikko Koivu shed his non-contact jersey for practice yesterday which means his return could come as early as tomorrow night.

Dmitry Kulikov couldn't play last night but he's optimistic about playing tomorrow.

Artem Anisimov took a hard hit against the boards from Joe Vitale and he immediately left the ice and the game. Looks like a shoulder injury but unsure about the severity.

Must be a real nasty flu for Henrik Lundqvist to have missed another game.

Nikolai Kulemin's season may be over as he was diagnosed with a broken finger and is expected to miss three weeks.

Radim Vrbata missed his second straight game due to some form of illness.

Returning to action from the injured last night: Sidney Crosby, Patrice Bergeron, Matt Duchene, P.A. Parenteau, Kris Letang, Martin Havlat, Adam McQuaid, Benoit Pouliot
