Phil Kessel doesn't have a goal on the year, but that's not a great indication of how he's played.

Kessel scored 37 times last season and hasn't had the same good fortune in 2013 despite some great chances lately and a team-high 20 shots on net. "All Phil really needs is a little bit of puck luck, that’s all," said Nazem Kadri. "He’s getting to the right spots, he’s shooting the puck. Maybe the first one’s got to be a dirty one. He’s got to get in that dirty area, and he’s gone there all year. It’s just a matter of a bounce here and there, the next thing you know it’s in the back of the net." Kessel is extremely streaky, meaning his first could lead to a bunch more in short order.

Marian Gaborik (knee) might be able to make his season debut Friday night.

Kings coach John Stevens said that he would consult with the trainers before a final decision on Gaborik's availability was made. Still, even if Gaborik doesn't end up returning on Friday, it's clear that he's very close. If Gaborik does play on Friday, it might be on a line with Jonny Brodzinski and Jussi Jokinen.

Alex Stalock will be Minnesota's starter on Friday afternoon against Colorado.

Stalock is 1-2-1 with a 2.56 GAA and .927 save percentage in five games this season. He turned aside 40 of 43 shots against Washington in his last start on Nov. 18.

Carter Hutton will be in net for the Blues on Friday against Nashville.

Hutton has made the most of his limited playing time this season by posting a 4-0-0 record, 1.71 GAA, and .943 save percentage in five contests. St. Louis is facing his former team, the Nashville Predators, so this was as good a time as any to get Hutton a start. "This was targeted," Blues coach Mike Yeo said. "The back-to-back nights, a team he's familiar with – a player always has some extra motivation playing against a former team. We've got to factor in what's best for Jake, maybe an extra day between games for Jake and he can come back and play against Minnesota, a team he's had strong performances against. That was our thought process here."

Scott Wedgewood will be between the pipes on Friday night versus Los Angeles.

Wedgewood has a 1-2-1 record, 2.93 GAA, and .909 save percentage in five contests this season. He's getting the nod because Antti Raanta is sidelined.

Torey Krug (upper body) has rejoined the Bruins for Friday's game.

Krug was regarded as a game-time decision after missing three straight contests. Boston dressed seven blueliners, so it will be interesting to see if Krug is eased back into the lineup to some extent.

Laurent Brossoit will start for the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

Cam Talbot is battling the flu, so that's why Brossoit is getting a rare start. Brossoit has a 0-2-1 record, 3.62 GAA, and .865 save percentage in five contests this season.
Nov 24 - 12:32 PM

Carey Price (lower body) will be the Canadiens' starter on Saturday.

It will be Price's first game with Montreal since Nov. 2. Now that he's finally healthy he will be tasked with turning his campaign around after a rough start. He has a 3-7-1 record, 3.77 GAA, and .877 save percentage in 11 contests.

Eddie Lack went unclaimed on waivers.

Calgary sent Lack to the minors as a result. Lack got off to an ugly start this season with a 1-2-0 record, 5.29 GAA, and .813 save percentage in four games. At one point he looked like he had starter potential, but now the 29-year-old netminder will have to prove that he's worth being on an NHL roster at all.

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Cory Schneider is starting on Friday, but Devils coach John Hynes wants to split up the workload for this back-to-back set. Kinkaid has a 4-1-1 record, 3.08 GAA, and .905 save percentage in seven contests this season.
Nov 24 - 12:12 PM

Torey Krug (upper body) is a game-time decision Friday afternoon.

Krug has been unavailable for the Bruins' last three contests. He has three goals and 11 points in 16 games this season.
Nov 24 - 11:53 AM

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes on Friday.

Keep in mind that Boston's game against Pittsburgh starts at 1:00 p.m. ET, so make sure you adjust your lineups in time. Khudobin is getting his fourth straight start, which isn't surprising given how effective he's been lately. He's allowed just four goals over his last three games.
