Kris Letang looks as if he'll be back in the lineup this afternoon.

It sounds as if Kris Letang will be activated and put in the lineup this afternoon since the Penguins sent down Simon Despres.

Tomas Vokoun will likely miss the remainder of the regular season after he re-injured his groin during Thursday night's game.

Dennis Seidenberg sat out again yesterday due to an infection he got after being cut with a skate blade. It is not known if he will play tonight.

Jonathan Toews was officially cleared for contact. He won't play in today's game and the Blackhawks only have two games remaining after that. It's being reported that he's targeting Thursday as a return date.

Tyler Myers couldn't play last night as he's dealing with a foot injury after blocking a shot. He's considered day to day.

Jeff Carter sat out for a second straight game with an ankle injury. He could play on Monday, however.

Kevin Bieksa sat out for a third straight game last night. The Canucks are still saying that they're just giving him some rest before the playoffs, but as Diomedes7 pointed out yesterday some believe they're actually making him a healthy scratch.

Returning from injury yesterday: Nicklas Backstrom, Kimmo Timonen, Roberto Luongo, Mark Fistric, Andy McDonald, Matt D'Agostini, Roman Polak, Andrew Ebbett, Chris Thorburn
