Semyon Varlamov suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Varlamov excused himself midway through the second period after stopping all 21 of the shots he faced. Jonathan Bernier checked into the game and allowed two goals on 24 shots to finish the game, and he picked up the victory in overtime. The source and severity of Varlamov's injury is not yet known. It's probably a good bet that Bernier will be in the crease for Thursday's next outing against the visiting Blue Jackets.

Tyler Toffoli skated on the Kings' top line during Wednesday's practice.

Toffoli was alongside Anze Kopitar and Alex Iafallo. Kings coach John Stevens said after practice that he liked how the Kings looked during the practice, so don't be surprised if that is the top unit for Thursday's game. Toffoli has a goal and four points in six games this season.

Tanner Pearson might be a healthy scratch on Thursday.

Pearson appeared to skate as an extra during Wednesday's practice. He only has an assist in six games this season and the Kings have dropped their last two contests, so the timing makes sense if Kings coach John Stevens does decide to scratch Pearson. "We need something to change, right?" Stevens said. "We changed the lines a little bit, hoping to get some good energy and some of those young guys get an opportunity to help us with their skill level and speed and competitiveness [that] they bring. I thought it was a good look for us today."

Johnny Gaudreau wasn't allowed to complete Wednesday's game after he was removed by a concussion spotter.

It was due to a hit Gaudreau absorbed from Charlie McAvoy midway through the third period. Gaudreau initially stayed in the game, but left on the order of a concussion spotter. It wasn't immediately known what results followed. "Belks (Flames trainer Kent Kobelka) comes down and says, ‘Johnny’s gotta go. The spotters have called for him.’ That’s all I know," Flames coach Bill Peters said. "Hopefully it’s nothing. Hopefully, it’s minor. But we’ll see." We'll list Gaudreau as day-to-day for now, but as Peters said, hopefully this proves to be nothing.

Patrice Bergeron recorded a goal and an assist in Wednesday night’s 5-2 loss to the Flames.

The 33-year old center has now amassed six goals and 13 points in Boston’s first six games of the 2018-19 season. It was his fifth consecutive multi-point game and has only been held off the scoresheet once so far this season. He is a must-start in all fantasy formats.

The Anaheim Ducks have signed Nick Ritchie to a three-year contract.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the deal has an average annual value of $1.533 million. Finally, this contract dispute is over. Ritchie held out of training camp and the start of the regular season because the two sides couldn't come to terms on a new contract. This was always going to be a difficult negotiation for the 22-year-old because he simply didn't have any leverage. Ritchie had 10 goals and 27 points in 76 games last season. He has a lot to prove this season.

Chris Kreider scored a goal and an assist during Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

Kreider picked up the primary assist on Mika Zibanejad's goal that gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead early in the first period. He also tied the game at three with a power-play tally with under 10 minutes remaining in the third frame. The Rangers' comeback eventually fell short, as Caps defender Matt Niskanen scored the winner in the extra period. Kreider finished the game with a plus-1 rating, six shots on goal and one hit in 17:07 of ice time. The 27-year-old has scored in back-to-back games. He's up to four goals and two assists in seven games this season.

Alex Ovechkin scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the New York Rangers.

Both goals were scored on the power play in the second period. Those goals gave Washington 2-1 and 3-2 leads at the time. On the first one, Ovechkin just threw the puck on goal and Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist clearly wasn't expecting that. The second was a classic Ovechkin one-timer from the circle. The Capitals captain finished the night with a minus-1 rating, six shots on goal and three hits in 23:28 of ice time. The 33-year-old now has six goals and three assists in six games this season. Matt Niskanen eventually scored the game-winner in overtime for Washington.

Brayden Schenn scored a power play goal in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

The Blues never had the lead in this game, but Schenn managed to tie the game at two with less than 3:30 remaining in regulation. Unfortunately for the Blues, Colton Parayko's late turnover led to Brendan Gallagher's game-winner for the Canadiens. Schenn finished the night with a minus-1 rating, three shots on goal, two hits and one blocked shot in 18:30 of ice time. The 27-year-old now has three goals and three assists in six games this season. Vince Dunn also scored a power play goal for the Blues tonight.

Mike Reilly scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Reilly picked up a secondary helper on Max Domi's goal which came just 39 seconds into the game. He then added a power-play tally in the second frame to give the Habs a 2-1 lead at the time. The Blues ended up tying the game late, but Brendan Gallagher scored the go-ahead goal with under 10 seconds remaining thanks to a brutal turnover by Colton Parayko. Reilly ended up finishing the game with a plus-1 rating, one shot on goal, one hit and two blocked shots in 21:49 of ice time. The 25-year-old has been outstanding for Montreal so far this season. He has a goal and two assists in six games.

Ryan Getzlaf was not on the ice for the pregame warmups and is not going to return Wednesday night.

Getzlaf is still recovering from a groin injury and it didn't seem like he would return based on the morning skate. Injury-riddled Anaheim would love to get the star pivot back in the lineup as soon as possible.
Oct 17 - 9:50 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will be back in the crease Wednesday night.

Lundqvist will start for the second time in two nights after he stopped 31 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over Colorado on Tuesday. He owns a 2-3-0 record this season with a 1.99 goals-against average and .939 save percentage.
