Brian Elliott is expected to start on Saturday.

It will be Elliott's third start in four games. He has a 1.98 GAA and .917 save percentage in six contests this season.

Dmitry Orlov can be activated off of the long-term injured reserve list on Sunday, but that doesn't mean he's close to rejoining the Capitals.

Capitals coach Barry Trotz suggested that Dmitry Orlov might not be ready until the end of November, which is quite the setback when you consider that there was a time when he was a possibility for the season opener. He had three goals and 11 points in 54 games in 2014-15.
Oct 31 - 2:23 PM

Brooks Laich (shoulder) might return next week.

Laich won't play on Saturday though as he's not even expected to travel with the team to Tampa Bay. He's also expected to miss Sunday's game in Washington against Arizona.
Oct 31 - 2:20 PM

Dan Boyle (hand) has been on the ice for four straight days.

Boyle isn't passing or shooting yet, but he can do everything else at this point. He sustained the injury during the Rangers' opening game.
Oct 31 - 2:18 PM

Derek Stepan (fractured fibula) might make his return on Monday.

We're skeptical of that though because Stepan hasn't had full contact practices yet. That being said, it's believed that he will return in the not too distant future, even if he doesn't end up playing Monday. He's missed the Rangers' first nine games as a result of the injury.

The Philadelphia Flyers are sending Shayne Gostisbehere to the minors.

Gostisbehere's demotion follows the Flyers' decision to sign Carlo Colaiacovo. "I knew it was coming," Gostisbehere. "It was nothing I didn't expect. I mean, it's going to happen. I'm a young guy. Guys like that over there (Colaiacovo) get called and signed. Guys have earned their stripes here already, so they get the opportunity to play, and my time will come." Gostisbehere has no points and a minus-two rating in two games with Philadelphia this season.

Carlo Colaiacovo took part in his first practice as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Colaiacovo has agreed to a two-way contract with the Flyers. He needs some time to get up to speed after skipping the first month of the season, but he's hoping to make his 2014-15 debut on Tuesday.
Oct 31 - 2:12 PM

Steve Mason will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Mason warmed the bench for four straight games following his disastrous start to the season. This is obviously an opportunity for him to bounce back, but if he doesn't capitalize on it than it will further weaken his position against Ray Emery in the battle for the starting job.
Oct 31 - 2:09 PM

Vincent Lecavalier (foot) will rejoin the Flyers on Saturday.

Look for Lecavalier to play alongside R.J. Umberger and Wayne Simmonds. Lecavalier was out for seven consecutive contests.
Oct 31 - 2:07 PM

Jared Spurgeon's previously undisclosed injury is related to his shoulder.

Spurgeon will miss Saturday's game due to the ailment. He was hurt when Joe Pavelski checked him into the boards during the third period of Thursday's contest.
Oct 31 - 2:06 PM

David Van der Gulik has been sent to the minors.

Van der Gulik was called up because the Kings didn't have enough healthy players to fill a 20-man lineup. The fact that he's being sent down now likely signifies that the Kings are confident one of their injured players will be ready to return on Friday. That means either Anze Kopitar or Trevor Lewis will probably return.
Oct 31 - 1:33 PM

Erik Haula (upper body) joined the Wild on the ice again Friday morning.

Haula will probably return to the Wild's lineup on Saturday, but that's not set in stone. He has a goal in seven games in 2014-15.
Oct 31 - 1:31 PM

Jonas Brodin (hand) skated with the Minnesota Wild on Friday.

Brodin might be able to make his return on Saturday. He'll need to be reevaluated prior to the game before a final call is made.
Oct 31 - 1:29 PM

Jared Spurgeon (undisclosed) will miss Saturday's game.

Spurgeon left Thursday's contest in the third period after falling awkwardly into the boards. The Wild are hoping that this won't prove to be a long-term injury.
Oct 31 - 1:28 PM

The Carolina Hurricanes will get Nathan Gerbe (lower body) back on Saturday.

Gerbe missed four straight contests. Look for him to play on the second line with Riley Nash and Elias Lindholm.
