Latest Headlines

Bryce Salvador (groin) hasn't started to skate yet.

With that in mind, Salvador probably won't be back before the end of the regular season. He has a goal and three assists in 40 games in 2013-14.

Jimmy Howard stopped 28 of Los Angeles’ 30 shots in Detroit’s 5-2 win on Friday.

Howard has now surrendered two goals or less in six of his eight starts this season. The 30-year-old has been stellar for Detroit and gives them a chance to win every night. After a very average 2013-14 season, it’s nice to see Howard bounce back in a big way. He is now 5-1-2 with a 1.97 goals-against-average and a .929 save percentage this season.

Pavel Datsyuk scored two goals and an assist in Detroit’s 5-2 win over Los Angeles on Friday night.

The 36-year-old scored Detroit’s second goal to make it 2-0, and added the empty netter late in the third. Datsyuk has registered at least one point in each of the five games he’s played since returning from a shoulder injury. He now has four goals and eight points in those five games.

Tyler Toffoli scored a goal in Los Angeles’ 5-2 loss to Detroit on Friday.

It was his third shorthanded goal of the season. Toffoli continues to produce offense at an incredible pace. The 22-year-old now has six goals and 14 points in 11 games this season. Equally as incredible is his plus-13 rating in those 11 games. The 22-year-old played really well in last year’s playoffs and this year’s preseason, but no one could have anticipated an offensive explosion quite like this. He’s currently on pace to surpass the 40-goal and 100 point marks this season. It’s unlikely that he reaches those numbers, but not impossible.

Gustav Nyquist scored two goals and one assist in Detroit’s 5-2 win over Los Angeles on Friday night.

Nyquist continues to roll. He now has seven goals and two assists this season. Both goals came on the power play. The 25-year-old is currently on pace to beat last season’s 28 goal total. Nyquist has emerged as the next offensive star in Detroit. He will continue to get prime minutes both 5-on-5 and on the mad-advantage. Pavel Datsyuk (twice) and Tomas Tatar scored the other goals for Detroit.

Phil Kessel scored a goal and two assists in Toronto’s 4-1 win over Columbus on Friday.

Kessel’s goal opened the scoring in the game, and he added two assists in the third period. The 27-year-old now has 13 points in his last eight games, including eight points in his last four games. With the win, Toronto (5-4-1) is over the .500 mark for the first time this season.

Joffrey Lupul suffered a broken hand during Toronto's practice on Friday.

In a freak accident, Lupul stepped on a stick and fell on his hand. Lupul went for X-rays this morning where he was diagnosed with a broken hand. Lupul is out indefinitely, but Maple Leafs’ GM Dave Nonis admitted that the forward will be out for several weeks.
Oct 31 - 8:15 PM

David Backes (concussion) took part in Friday's practice.

Backes also passed the baseline test, so he might even be available for Tuesday's game. This is surprising news given that he only sustained the injury on Tuesday.

The NHL has suspended Alex Burrows for three games for his high, late hit on Montreal's Alexei Emelin.

Burrows will be eligible to return on Thursday. The NHL ruled that the "hit is so late that it can not be made at all." However, the league also specified that it would have been an illegal check to the head even if the hit was made in a timely manner. Burrows struggled mightily last season, but he was off to a good start in 2014-15 with two goals and six points in 10 contests.
Oct 31 - 6:14 PM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) has declared himself ready to return to the Lightning's lineup.

"I'm good to go," Callahan said on Friday. "That's the goal, as long as nothing shows up tomorrow, something that's bugging me from today's skate. But I felt really good today so don't see why not." Tampa Bay has already sent Cedric Paquette to the minors, so the stage is set for Callahan to rejoin the Lightning. He has three goals and five points in six games in 2014-15.
Oct 31 - 6:04 PM

Brock Nelson will play on the Islanders' top line Saturday.

Nelson has six goals and 12 points in 10 games this season and he's done that without playing much with the Islanders' top two forwards. If he ends up playing regularly with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo, then he's far less likely to simply fade away as the season progresses.
Oct 31 - 5:44 PM

Trevor Lewis (upper body) has been activated off of the injured reserve list.

Lewis will make his return on Friday. This move was anticipated after it was revealed earlier this afternoon that the Kings were sending David Van der Gulik back to the minors.
