Rick Nash will be a healthy scratch again on Friday.

This will be Nash's second straight game in the press box. The Rangers are keeping him out of the lineup to prevent an injury while they attempt to trade him.

Alexandar Georgiev will play between the pipes Friday night.

Interesting. Henrik Lundqvist has struggled terribly so we can understand the Rangers' desire to give him a break and some time to work on his game during practices. However, they're asking Georgiev to start for the second time in as many nights. That's a tall order for someone who just made his NHL debut on Thursday. To be fair, Georgiev was great in that contest, stopping 38 of 40 shots in the Rangers' 3-1 loss to Montreal.

Chris Kreider (rib surgery) will make his return on Friday.

Kreider was last able to play on Dec. 27. He had been diagnosed with a blood clot in his arm and that led to him having rib resection surgery on Jan. 7. Before all that happened, he had 11 goals and 22 points in 37 contests this season.

Vancouver will go with Anders Nilsson in goal Friday night.

Nilsson will try to bounce back from his 5-4 overtime loss to Colorado on Tuesday. He has a 7-10-2 record, 3.34 GAA, and .907 save percentage in 21 contests this season.

The Ottawa Senators have dealt Derick Brassard to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a 2018 first-round pick, Filip Gustavsson, and Ian Cole.

The Penguins are giving up a lot to get Brassard, but he's also a great third-line center for them. Brassard has 18 goals and 38 points in 58 contests. The Penguins like to run three capable scoring lines, often breaking up Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Phil Kessel to accomplish that. Having a player like Brassard on that third line will help them to achieve that. This obviously doesn't guarantee them a third consecutive championship - no trade comes with that kind of assurances - but it does make the Penguins look all the more threatening going into the playoffs.

Patric Hornqvist (lower body) termed himself as a game-time decision on Friday.

Hornqvist also said he was "ready to go" though, so odds are he'll be making his return. He's missed the Penguins' last eight contests.

Jean-Francois Berube will play between the pipes on Friday.

This will be Berube's first start at the NHL level this season. He has a 2.37 GAA and .920 save percentage in 15 AHL games in 2017-18.

Josh Bailey has agreed to a six-year, $30 million contract extension with the New York Islanders.

The Islanders didn't release the financial terms of the deal, but TSN's Bob McKenzie revealed them. Bailey has 15 goals and 62 points in 58 games this season so if he continues to play anything like that over the years to come then this will be a terrific signing for the Islanders. Even if he regresses a bit though, which seems likely, this will still be a decent price. The X-Factor of course is what this will mean for John Tavares. Bailey has been playing on a line with Tavares this season and we imagine the Islanders hope that re-signing Bailey will make Tavares more inclined to stick around too. If this deal helps them in their efforts to re-sign Tavares then that alone will make this worth it.

Micheal Ferland was held out of the third period of Thursday's game.

Ferland was actually hurt back on Feb. 15th, but remained in the lineup. Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said that Ferland was taken out of Thursday's contest for precautionary reasons, so perhaps he'll still be available on Saturday. We'll list him as day-to-day for now.
