Marian Hossa is "likely to play" in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final Wednesday night, according to Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville.

Hossa was a last-minute scratch Monday night, but judging by Quenneville's comments after the game and this afternoon it sounds like he was doubtful to suit up in Game 3. Ben Smith, who took Hossa's place in the lineup, didn't warmup because Quenneville didn't want to tip his hand. If Hossa returns for Game 4, expect Smith to find himself in the press box again.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 23 - 12:00 AM

Anthony Beauvillier stayed red hot in Monday's overtime loss at Arizona, potting his 11th and 12th goals of the season.

There is something about January which agrees with Beauvillier. He closed out 2017 with four goals and seven points through his first 31 games. Since flipping the calendar over to 2018 he has managed eight goals with nine points and a plus-7 rating in seven January outings. He is worth using in all standard fantasy pools right now, and he is a slam-dunk play in DFS while running hot.
Jan 22 - 11:54 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 40 shots in Monday's 2-0 win at Chicago for his seventh shutout of the season, tying a franchise record.

Vasilevskiy equaled the previous franchise best for shutouts set by Nikolai Khabibulin back during the 2001-02 season. The team has 35 more contests remaining, so there is a more than good chance that he sits alone at the top of the list barring any disaster. The Lightning travel to Nashville on Tuesday before moving on to Philadelphia on Thursday.
Jan 22 - 11:10 PM

Mikael Granlund picked up a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Granlund collected the primary assist on Jason Zucker's game-winning goal five minutes into the third period. The Wild forward then scored a power play goal midway through the final frame to push Minnesota ahead by two goals. Granlund finished the game with an even rating and four shots on goal in 17:30 of ice time. The 25-year-old has 14 goals and 38 points in 43 games this season. He has 11 points in his last eight contests.
