David Backes is in the lineup for Friday night's Game 5 showdown with the Blackhawks.

Backes will be a huge boost to a Blues squad that has lost both games since he was sidelined from illegal hit by the Hawks' Brent Seabrook in Game 2. Derek Roy is scratched for the Blues.

Jeff Carter (ankle) will reportedly miss at least six-to-eight weeks.

Los Angeles announced that Carter is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on Thursday. He suffered a skate cut during Wednesday's game. The cut reportedly damaged a tendon in his ankle, but it's not his Achilles' tendon.

Derek Forbort has agreed to a two-year, $5.05 million contract extension.

Forbort is in the final season of a two-year, $1.3 million deal. If he didn't re-sign then he could have become a restricted free agent this summer. He has two assists in six games this season.

Tuukka Rask has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Rask sustained the injury when Anders Bjork crashed into him during Wednesday's practice. It's an unfortunate break for the Bruins to say the very least. It's not clear how long Rask will be sidelined for, which is par for the course when we're talking about a concussion. For now, Anton Khudobin will serve as the Bruins' starting goaltender while Zane McIntyre is the team's backup.

Brooks Laich has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Los Angeles Kings.

Laich took part in Los Angeles' training camp, but didn't secure a contract heading into the regular season. He continued to skate with the team in the hopes of landing a deal and that's happened now that the Kings have lost Jeff Carter indefinitely to a leg injury. Laich can earn $650,000 annually at the NHL level or $50,000 in the minors.

Robin Lehner didn't participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness.

That puts Lehner's availability for Friday's game in question. He has a 3.14 GAA and .900 save percentage in five contests this season.
Oct 19 - 5:12 PM

Wayne Simmonds (groin) said on Thursday he's okay to play.

It remains to be seen if Simmonds will play on Thursday, especially after the Flyers summoned Matt Read from the minors. Perhaps Read was just brought in for insurance purposes though and will ultimately serve as a healthy scratch. Simmonds couldn't complete Tuesday's contest due to the ailment.

Jeff Carter's leg was cut by a skate during Wednesday's game and he's had surgery as a result.

Carter is out indefinitely, but beyond that we don't have a timetable for him. There was an earlier report that suggested that the skate cut caused tendon damage. He has three assists in six games this season. We wish him the best in his recovery.

Zach Parise (undisclosed) will miss Friday and Saturday's contests.

Beyond that, there was no update on Parise's status. With him ruled out for the weekend though, he will miss at least the first six games of the Wild's campaign.
Oct 19 - 2:59 PM

Anton Forsberg is expected to start Thursday night.

Forsberg will be making his second start of the 2017-18 campaign. He stopped 39 of 43 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Toronto on Oct. 9.

Jeff Carter's injury is reportedly a cut that might have been deep enough to result in tendon damage.

Carter was hurt during Wednesday's game and left the contest early as a result. After the contest a team source said he was "going to be a little while." This all sounds pretty bad, but we'll wait for official word from the Kings.
Oct 19 - 1:11 PM

Patrice Bergeron (lower body) is a game-time decision on Thursday.

Bergeron has been absent for the Bruins' first five games due to the injury. Getting him back would naturally be a huge boost for Boston, especially given that they'll be missing Tuukka Rask (undisclosed) on Thursday.
