Jaroslav Halak will get the nod for St. Louis versus San Jose in Game 1 on Thursday night.

The decision was an obvious one with Brian Elliott ailing due to an upper-body injury, but Halak might've been coach Ken Hitchcock's choice even if his counterpart was healthy.

Kings general manager Dean Lombardi has asked Justin Williams’ camp for "a little more time" to work out an extension, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman says that Williams "had a soft deadline of next week." Williams, 33, is enjoying a solid season in Los Angeles, with eight goals and 19 points. He’s also a darling of advanced stat community for his puck-possession prowess. Williams is in the last season of a four-year deal that carried a $3.65 million cap hit.

Patric Hornqvist suffered an injury to his foot/ankle after getting hit by a teammate’s shot.

Just what the Penguins need: more injuries. Hornqvist had three shots on goal in 6:26. Scott Harrington’s shot struck him in the ankle/foot area, and he returned briefly but ultimately left for the dressing room. Hornqvist has excelled in his first season with the Penguins, tallying 13 goals and 29 points. The hope here is that it’s nothing but a bruise.

The Anaheim Ducks won't have Corey Perry in the lineup on Saturday night and it doesn't sound like he'll play on Sunday, either.

Perry is dealing with a knee injury. On the bright side, Perry might at least skate with Anaheim on Sunday morning. He's been effective as usual when healthy in 2014-15: 14 goals, 22 points and 33 PIM in 22 games.

Ben Bishop will get the nod Saturday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Updating an earlier report, Ben Bishop will be the starting goalie for the Lightning Saturday night against the 'Canes. Bishop has been out since December 15th when he suffered a lower-body-injury but is feeling well enough to take the ice this evening. When healthy, Bishop is one of the league's best, so get him back in your lineup as soon as you can.

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that defenseman Olli Maatta should return to action "within the next month."

He's been nursing an upper-body injury, which was a process that was exasperated by a case of mumps. He also had a cancerous tumor removed earlier this season, so 2014-15 has been trying for the young defenseman (to say the least). He generated nine points in 20 games this season, but hasn't been able to play since Dec. 6.

In a strange development, the New Jersey Devils will essentially employ Scott Stevens and Adam Oates as "co-coaches" through the 2014-15 season.

Beyond that, there are no guarantees (and Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is known for unusual coaching decisions, in general). It's difficult to tell what kind of impact this situation will have on the broader fantasy picture in New Jersey, although Oates could conceivably given the Devils' PP unit a boost.

The New Jersey Devils have named Adam Oates and Scott Stevens as co-coaches.

We are not sure how this is going to work but both will be under GM Lou Lamoriello for the next few games as Lamoriello is expected lead the Devils in the short term. This should be interesting as perhaps Stevens will be in charge of the blueliners with Oates taking over the forwards.

The New York Islanders have placed Jaroslav Halak on the injured reserve list with a lower body injury.

Well it looks like Halak has been injured all along as he did not dress on Tuesday. The Islanders recalled Kevin Poulin this morning. Halak last played a week ago so he is eligible to return at any time. Reserve him for now.

Josh Rimer of Sportsnet.ca reports that Paul MacLean will not be the next coach of the New Jersey Devils but it looks like it will be Adam Oates.

Oates last coached the Washington Capitals in the 2013-14 season. Stay tuned as GM Lou Lamoriello is expected to talk to the media at 10:30ET Saturday morning.

With Sergei Bobrovsky not at morning practice, Curtis McElhinney is expected to get the start in goal for Columbus on Saturday.

McElhinney is only 1-6-1 this season with a weak 3.49 GAA and a .895 save percentage. Adjust your lineup accordingly.

Scott Hartnell is on the ice in morning practice alongside Ryan Johansen and Jeremy Morin.

It looks like Hartnell will be back in the lineup as he has been out of action since December 11 with a broken finger. Since he is still on the injured reserve list, the Blue Jackets will have to make a move to get him off the list and into the lineup tonight.
