Lars Eller has no recollection of the crushing hit he received from Ottawa's Eric Gryba that gave him a concussion and a broken nose.

"It happened so fast. I don't remember anything of it happening on the ice" he said. "I don't remember getting carried off the ice, trying to get up, all that stuff." He lost consciousness but he is making positive strides in his recovery now. He skated twice last week with Pierre Allard, who serves as Montreal's strength and conditioning coach. Eller said he's "been feeling really good for the last three or four days," which has allowed him to ramp up his training. Concussions can be tricky to predict, but it looks like he will OK for next season. We'll keep you posted on his status if updates emerge over the summer.

Philadelphia forward Brayden Schenn scored twice in the Flyers' 4-1 upset victory over the Penguins in Pittsburgh Wednesday night.

After superstar Sidney Crosby gave Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead early in the first period, the Flyers scored four consecutive goals on goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and beat their cross-state rivals handily. Schenn's goals were his 15th and 16th of the season. Jacub Voracek assisted on Schenn's second goal. That gives Voracek 56 assists on the season. Philly's other goal scorers were Vincent Lecavalier (eighth) and defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo. Colaiacovo's goal, on a shorthanded effort, was his first of the season. Colaiacovo also was a plus-two on the night.

Ryan Kesler (upper body injury) will be held out of Wednesday’s contest with the Oilers.

Kesler was given a maintenance day during the morning skate Wednesday and will not be dressed for the game at night versus the Oilers. He has played in all 78 games for the Ducks this season, picking up 20 goals and 47 points and although he still carries a lot of "real-life" value for the Ducks, he has been a disappointing fantasy player for those who drafted him this season expecting 30 plus goals and 60 plus points. Consider him day-to-day and look for him to return to the Ducks lineup Friday against the Avalanche.

Patrick Kane (clavicle) was back at practice on Wednesday.

It was his first session with his teammates since he was taken out of the lineup with a broken clavicle. "I thought it was a pretty good step (Wednesday) skating with the team," Kane said. "I'm happy about that. I'm not really sure what the next step is. I'm sure it would be contact and maybe finish some of the drills the guys were doing. We'll kind of see how I feel there." Unfortunately, his timetable hasn't changed, which means he's still on track to return in mid-May.

Martin St. Louis will return to the lineup on Thursday night.

Dustin Byfuglien will have a hearing on Thursday for his cross-check to New York's J.T. Miller.

He wasn't penalized on the play, but it's not surprising that he's facing a suspension for the incident. Byfuglien's stick made contact with the back of Miller's neck when the Rangers forward fell in front of the Winnipeg net.
