Shea Weber (lower body) won't play against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

It's a bit of a surprise considering he took part in the morning skate. This is terrible news for a Canadiens team that's struggling badly right now. Weber has four goals 13 points in 20 games this season. Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.

Carl Gunnarsson will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Nov 21 - 6:47 PM

Dale Weise is expected to be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Weise has just two goals and one assist in 17 games with the Flyers this season, so the fact that he's scratched isn't shocking. It's the first time since Oct. 30 that he'll watch from the press box. Matt Read will also serve as a healthy scratch, while Radko Gudas continues to serve his suspension.

Nov 21 - 4:54 PM

Gemel Smith will be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

Smith was scratched for Saturday's win over Edmonton, but an injury to Martin Hanzal will get him back into the fold. He is projected to play alongside Jason Spezza and Remi Elie.

Derek Dorsett has returned to Vancouver for further evaluation after he started to experience neck and back stiffness symptoms.

Dorsett had a cervical fusion procedure last year and he has progressed well from it, but the team is taking every precaution necessary to make sure Dorsett is fine. His status is unclear until he sees a specialist, but we know he won't play Tuesday night.
Nov 21 - 4:43 PM

Michal Neuvirth will be between the pipes Tuesday against Vancouver.

The Flyers will play again on Wednesday, so Brian Elliott could start that contest versus the New York Islanders. Neuvirth hasn't played in a game since Nov. 4 when he lost 5-4 in a shootout to Colorado. He has a 2-3-1 record this year with a 2.17 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage.
Nov 21 - 4:32 PM

Connor McDavid is fine to play Tuesday night.

McDavid has been battling an illness lately, but he will play against the St. Louis Blues. "Connor's been sick for a week to 10 days now and hasn't practiced at all," coach Todd McLellan said. "He is getting better and he'll play tonight. If we need to give him some rest over the next few days we'll give him some rest. He's been giving us everything he has energy wise; his minutes have come down a little bit but he'll be fine." McDavid has compiled 10 goals and 25 points in 20 games this year.
Nov 21 - 4:22 PM

Blues coach Mike Yeo is glad to have Jay Bouwmeester back in the lineup.

"I'm happy to have him back," Yeo said. "A veteran presence, defender, skating ability, definitely have missed him on the penalty kill, looking forward to getting him back." Bouwmeester will play in his first game of the season on Tuesday night after he suffered a fractured ankle early at training camp. Carl Gunnarsson will serve as a healthy scratch.
