Don't be surprised if Benoit Pouliot blossoms as a second-line winger in Tampa.

He may get a chance to play alongside Vincent Lecavalier and get a real chance to put his latent offensive skills to the test. "He's got the skill, the ability to play with our top guys," general manager Steve Yzerman said. "We're going to give him the opportunity." Keep an eye on Pouliot during training camp to see if he takes advantage of this opportunity. If so, he could be a nice 55-60 point sleeper pick in 2012-13.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will make David Savard a healthy scratch on Friday night.

Savard is supposed to be one of Columbus' key figures on defense, but the coaching staff clearly isn't happy with his work. He has two goals, four assists and a minus-1 rating in 19 games this season. Gabriel Carlsson will take Savard's spot in the lineup.

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Khudobin earned a second straight start by stopping 27 shots in a 2-1 win over Los Angeles on Thursday. He's 4-0-2 with a 2.35 GAA and .928 save percentage in seven games this season.

Kari Lehtonen will be Dallas' starter on Saturday.

Lehtonen stopped 26 of 29 shots in a 4-3 shootout loss in his last start on Tuesday. He has a 2-3-1 record, 2.48 GAA, and .910 save percentage in six games this season.

Chris Wideman's lower-body injury is a "ripped" hamstring, per Senators coach Guy Boucher.

Wideman will be sidelined for "weeks" as a result. He was hurt on Thursday when he fell awkwardly in the third period with Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin on top of him. Wideman has three goals and eight points in 16 games this season.

Auston Matthews (upper body) took part in Friday's practice.

Matthews was skating on a line with Zach Hyman and William Nylander. He might be able to return on Saturday, but that hasn't been decided yet. He's missed four straight games so far.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have confirmed that they have signed Cam Atkinson to a seven-year extension.

The contract had been reported Thursday night, but it was suggested that the deal was worth $40.25 million when he actually signed for a little more at $41.125 million. He could have become an unrestricted free agent this summer after completing his current three-year, $10.5 million deal. He set career-highs last season with 35 goals and 62 points, but he's been cold so far in 2017-18 with six points in 15 contests. Perhaps now that the weight of the contract talks are over, he'll start to heat up.

Duncan Keith was unavailable for another practice due to an illness.

It was anticipated that Keith would be able to play on Saturday despite the bug, but given that he's now missed back-to-back practices we're going to err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day. He has no goals and 10 assists in 19 games this season.

Mike Smith (upper body) has confirmed that he will be available on Saturday.

We suspected as much after the Flames sent goalie Jon Gillies to the minors Thursday afternoon, but now we have confirmation. Smith only ended up missing one game due to the ailment.
