The Lightning put Alex Killorn (upper body) on the injured reserve list.

Killorn was injured Monday against the Oilers. He skated for the second straight day on Saturday. Killorn broke out last season, and he has two goals thus far in 2014-15.

Ryan Callahan (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Callahan injured himself Monday against the Oilers. It seems as if he is week to week at this point. The 29-year-old is an effective, physical player when he’s in the lineup. The problem is, he’s rarely healthy for a full season. Callahan has five points in six games this season.

Ryan Malone was a healthy scratch for the Rangers on Saturday night.

The veteran is sitting in favor of rookie Anthony Duclair. Malone is pointless in four games, with four penalty minutes. How long he sits could very well be determined by how Duclair looks.

The Toronto Maple Leafs decided to dress seven defensemen against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Along with the usual suspects, Jake Gardiner, Stephane Robidas and Stuart Percy are also playing against the Maple Leafs. Considering the limited use of Toronto's fourth line, seven defensemen seems fairly sensible.

San Jose Sharks goalie Alex Stalock didn't improve his odds of winning the top netminding spot as his team dropped a 2-1 loss to the lowly Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

Stalock only faced 15 shots, yet he allowed two goals. His save percentage is still strong (.924) so far, yet he's 1-2-1 and is far from stealing the job from Antti Niemi at this point. Still, it's probably fair to say that the Sharks' problems go much deeper than their goaltending questions.

Brent Burns was the only San Jose Sharks player to score a goal in a 2-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

Burns has probably been the brightest light for the struggling Sharks so far, as he's doing just fine in his return to the blueline. Burns has two goals (nine points) in nine games with 14 PIM and 28 SOG. It's oddly fitting that his goal was unassisted.
Oct 25 - 7:00 PM

While the San Jose Sharks' effort was uneven on Saturday, Michal Neuvirth deserves a lot of credit for the Buffalo Sabres' shocking 2-1 win.

Neuvirth stopped 29 out of 30 shots, including 14 out of 15 in the third period. The 26-year-old has faced 107 shots in three games so far, acquitting himself pretty well. This is his first win for Buffalo in 2014-15, and if he keeps this up, he might take quite a few starts from Jhonas Enroth.
Oct 25 - 6:57 PM

Cody Hodgson scored two of the Buffalo Sabres' goals in a stunning 2-1 win against the San Jose Sharks.

Hodgson, 24, is still having a disappointing season so far (just two points and a -6 rating with a scant 10 SOG in nine games), but perhaps this will light a fire under him? He only received 10:48 time on ice on Saturday, so this may just be wakeup call material for the 10th pick of the 2008 NHL Draft.

Shayne Gostisbehere is set to make his NHL debut on Saturday as his Philadelphia Flyers face the Detroit Red Wings.

The 21-year-old has two assists in three AHL games this season. His resume is slim enough that it's difficult to tell if he has much of a chance to make an impact. The Flyers would likely embrace it, as they're obviously hurting in that area right now.

The New Jersey Devils will go with Cory Schneider instead of Scott Clemmensen against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Schneider gets back-to-back starts, after all. The gap between the two goalies' skills is large enough that it's understandable why New Jersey is going in this direction. He played both of five back-to-back sets for the Devils in 2013-14.
Oct 25 - 5:26 PM

While it doesn't necessarily mean his return is imminent, Los Angeles Kings forward Marian Gaborik was at least able to skate on Saturday.

The 32-year-old hasn't played since Oct. 12. Virtually all fantasy owners know that Gaborik poses a big injury risk factor. He has one assist in three games in 2014-15.
Oct 25 - 4:36 PM

It doesn't sound like St. Louis Blues forward David Backes will go out of his way seeking revenge on Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook.

Still, it doesn't sound like he won't give him a little extra if the opportunity arises. "We'll finish our checks as hard as we can and see what happens," Backes said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Mark Lazerus.

The Tampa Bay Lightning's winger J.T. Brown is considered day-to-day with his upper-body issue.

The Bolts are dealing with an array of injuries, as Brown was one of the players who was hurt on Friday. Brown isn't a big impact player in fantasy at this point in his career.
Oct 25 - 4:20 PM

The San Jose Sharks injected defenseman John Scott back into their lineup against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

As a former Sabre, Scott could very well "renew pleasantries" with a former teammate via a fight. His main benefit is PIM, so this is a solid situation for him to contribute.
Oct 25 - 4:09 PM

The Tampa Bay Lightning will be without Alex Killorn against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

Killorn is dealing with an upper-body injury. He has two goals, a +1, four hits and 12 SOG in five games so far in 2014-15.
