Nail Yakupov was not at all happy at being a healthy scratch Saturday and may sit out again on Monday.

Coach Dallas Eakins has not decided whether or not Yakupov will play against the Capitals. Yakupov practiced on Sunday and was not thrilled about sitting in the press box Saturday. "I wasn’t happy about it last night," Yakupov said on Sunday. "You can say a million words about getting better but coach says I'm not playing, so I'm not playing. I'm not happy about it. I just want to play every game. I'm going to play my game. I'm not going to change but maybe play better without the puck, or forecheck more, but I love playing with the puck. I really don't like skating all the time, and forechecking, and hitting somebody every shift. I don't think it's my game." Coach Dallas Eakins is concerned that because Yakupov is not finding the back of the net, it is affecting the rest of his game as he sulks about his lack of scoring. Now would be a great time to buy low on Yakupov whose fantasy value has taken a hit in the last couple of days.

Steven Stamkos took to the ice in full gear Tuesday, working with assistant coach Brad Lauer, before the team's morning skate.

He did some stickhandling, shooting and some one-timers. "He's progressing well," GM Steve Yzerman said. "He's doing well, but can't give a return date yet." Stamkos is believed to be on a 4-6 month timetable since undergoing knee surgery in mid-November. A return this season has not been ruled out yet.

Mitch Marner (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

Mike Smith didn't sustain a significant injury in Monday's game against Anaheim.

Smith left the game in the third period after teammate Jakob Silfverberg collided into him. He underwent the concussion protocol, but fortunately that went well for Smith. "He’s fine," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "All checked out. He’s fine. He was probably ready to come back with a minute or two left."

Florida Panthers center Vincent Trocheck ripped a slap shot through a maze of players with 4.6 seconds left in regulation and, somehow, it found the net for what was the winning goal in St. Louis Monday night.

With their 2-1 victory, the Panthers won their fifth consecutive game and recorded a perfect 5-for-5 road trip. Trocheck has been red-hot himself. His goal, his 21st of the season, was his eighth point in his past five games. Five of those points were assists. His goal Monday came from the high slot; Blues goalie Jake Allen never saw the puck. Jonathan Marchessault also scored for the Panthers, his 17th of the season. It gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead in the first period.

Jonathan Bernier will be between the pipes for Monday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

Even though John Gibson pitched a 24-save shutout against the Kings last night, the Ducks will still opt to give him the night off tonight. Bernier has an 8-4-2 record with a 2.80 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage.

Avalanche defenseman Nikita Zadorov will miss the remainder of the season because of a fractured ankle.

The season of misery just keeps on going for Colorado. Not only have they been horrible on the ice, but they can't seem to catch any breaks either. The injury occurred during Monday's practice after Zadorov got tangled up with Mikko Rantanen. Zadorov was averaging 19:02 of ice time per game. He had no goals, 10 assists and a minus-20 rating in 56 games.
