Brad Richards was demoted to the third line during Thursday night's shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators.

The demotion comes after coach John Tortorella benched Richards for almost the entire third period of last Thursday's game against the Islanders. "We don’t have enough guys playing," Tortorella said after the game. Richards has just two goals and 11 points in 16 games this season and has struggled with giveaways this season. His contract and his skill set means he'll keep getting chances on the top lines, but Torts isn't exactly a patient man.

Bryan Rust (upper body) is expected to be back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

He's been out since Dec. 27. Rust was considered a game-time decision for this game. Not only did he take the pre-game warmup, but he also found himself taking line rushes on Pittsburgh's fourth line. Rust has four goals and 18 points in 38 games this season.

Jaden Schwartz (ankle) won't play Tuesday night.

Schwartz was on the ice for the optional morning skate and he could be back in the lineup on Thursday. St. Louis will have to make a roster move to activate him, which may lead to a player like Magnus Paajarvi or Oskar Sundqvist going on waivers.

Mark Stone (knee) is not expected to play Tuesday, but he hasn't been ruled out yet for Thursday.

Stone didn't play on Monday, but the issue is not believed to be serious. "It's not a structural problem we have to wait for it to heal," coach Guy Boucher said. "It's really an inflammation. He ran into the boards and there's swelling. There's less swelling, when the swelling really impairs your movements. There's no use in having Stone go on one leg." He may be ready for the first game after the All-Star break if he doesn't play Thursday.

Corey Crawford (upper body) worked out off the ice on Tuesday for a second straight day.

"He was in again today, had a good workout, feeling much better," coach Joel Quenneville said. "When we get him on the ice soon here, hopefully, then we'll get a better assessment." According to sources, Crawford has been dealing with vertigo-like symptoms from a possible head injury since Dec. 23 when he left a game against New Jersey.

Louis Domingue will be between the pipes for the Lightning on Tuesday night.

Domingue will face the Nashville Predators after Andrei Vasilevskiy blanked Chicago on Monday night. He stopped 34 shots in a 5-2 win over Detroit on Jan. 7 in his first start with Tampa Bay.

Sebastian Aho (concussion, lower body) didn't skate Tuesday, but he is with the team on the road.

Coach Bill Peters said Aho won't return until after the All-Star break. It's unclear when he will be ready to play after he suffered a concussion and a lower-body injury on Jan. 14 against Calgary.

Carter Hutton will be back in goal for the Blues on Tuesday night against Ottawa.

Hutton was yanked early on Saturday after he allowed three goals on only 12 shots, so he will be looking to bounce back and reward coach Mike Yeo's faith in him. This will be his eighth start in the last 10 games. Hutton has played well this season with a mark of 10-4-1, a 1.91 goals-against average and a .938 save percentage.
Jan 23 - 12:33 PM

Casey DeSmith will start Tuesday's game against Carolina.

This shouldn't come as a surprise, as DeSmith has played well in Pittsburgh's last two games. He has picked up a win and a loss, while stopping 62 of the 65 shots he has faced.

Corey Perry skated on the fourth line during Monday's practice.

It's probably not a permanent move, but that might be the role Perry has for Tuesday's contest at least. Perry has left something to be desired this season with seven goals and 23 points in 37 contests and if you want to be optimistic, you could hope that this demotion will light a fire under him. Meanwhile, Ondrej Kase is skating on the top unit. These moves are in response to the Ducks' rough 6-2 loss to San Jose on Sunday.
Jan 23 - 9:30 AM

Brendan Perlini picked up an even-strength goal in Monday's 3-2 victory against the Islanders.

Perlini flicked the switch on the goal lamp for the third consecutive outing, and he has five goals across his past 10 contests. He has picked up the pace with 2.4 shots per game in eight January outings after managing just 1.8 SOG in 12 December contests. His confidence on the offensive end is growing, but his fantasy value remains strictly limited to deeper pools.
Jan 23 - 12:08 AM

Antti Raanta allowed just two goals on 34 shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime victory against the visiting Islanders.

Raanta improved to 8-12-5 overall on the season, with three of those victories coming in seven January outings. He has lost just once in regulation since flipping the calendar from 2017, losing three times in a shootout. Raanta has allowed three or fewer goals in each of his six January outings, and 14 of his past 16 appearances overall. Despite playing for the cellar-dwelling Coyotes he has emerged as a decent low-end No. 2 fantasy backstop.
