Valtteri Filppula left practice early Thursday to rest his ailing knee.

The Detroit forward suffered a sprained right in mid-November while playing in Finland during the lockout. "It's been bothering me for a little bit," said Filppula. "I was expecting to be still feeling it (because) it hasn't been that long (since the injury occurred). Hopefully it goes away soon." A troublesome knee could partially explain why he hasn't recorded a point yet after three games this season. He expects to play Friday against Minnesota though.

Devan Dubnyk will start in Tuesday's game against Nashville.

The Coyotes have a bit of a goalie controversy given Mike Smith's slow start to the season. Smith has a 5.33 GAA and .822 save percentage in three games. While his struggles might lead to Dubnyk getting more ice time in the short-term, Smith should get more opportunities to turn his season around before he's in any serious jeopardy of losing the starting gig. It's worth adding that Dubnyk did play for the Predators in 2013-14, but he only appeared in two games, so this isn't the biggest of reunions.

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Khudobin was been splitting the Hurricanes' starts with Cam Ward so far. Khudobin is off to a far better start though with a 2.44 GAA and .923 save percentage.

Pavel Datsyuk (shoulder) should be back into the Red Wings' lineup on Tuesday.

Datsyuk missed the start of the season after sustaining the injury during Detroit's first preseason game. He's battle more than his fair share of ailments in recent years, but he's one of the league's top players when he's healthy.

Corey Crawford has sustained an upper-body injury.

Crawford will not start against the Philadelphia Flyers as a result. Beyond that, he's considered day-to-day. Crawford has a 1.66 GAA and .926 save percentage in four games this season.

Ryan Callahan exited Monday's game against Edmonton because of a lower-body injury.

He appeared to be favoring his leg when he left late in the second period and he didn't return. Callahan is unlikely to play Tuesday night in Calgary, according to coach Jon Cooper.

Taylor Hall scored on a penalty shot, added an assist and recorded a plus-two rating in helping the Edmonton Oilers edge the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 Monday night.

It was the Oilers' first victory of the season after the worst start in franchise history at 0-4-1. Hall's goal was his fourth of the season. The left winger was awarded his penalty shot at 14:57 of the second period. He assisted earlier in the second on a pretty backhanded goal by defenseman Justin Schultz, his first of the season. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also notched his first of the season, the game winner at 16:35 of the third period. It was set up nicely after an interception in the Lightning's zone by Justin Eberle, who quickly turned around and passed the puck to Nugent-Hopkins. Eberle's assist was his third of the season.

Jimmy Howard (groin) will be between the pipes for Detroit on Tuesday night in Montreal.

He was on 48-hour injured reserve while he recovered from a groin injury, but he's recovered now and ready to go. Get him back in your lineup if you normally would.

Tyler Seguin captured the league's first star of the week for the period ending Oct. 19.

He racked up eight points (four goals, four assists) in three games to lead the NHL in scoring. Seguin's fifth career hat trick came in a 4-2 victory over Columbus last Tuesday and collected a career-high four assists in a 6-5 overtime defeat to Philadelphia this past Saturday.

Semyon Varlamov (groin) will be back in Colorado's crease on Friday against Vancouver.

The Avalanche will go with Reto Berra, if he's ready, on Tuesday versus Florida, but he can't play then Calvin Pickard will probably get the nod. Varlamov has missed the past two games with a groin injury.

T.J. Brodie has agreed to a five-year extension with the Calgary Flames.

According to Elliotte Friedman, Brodie's new contract will have an annual average value of $4.65 million. The 24-year-old blueliner co-leads the league in scoring among defensemen with seven points and three goals in seven games.
