P. A. Parenteau (concussion) won't be back in the lineup on Tuesday.

He is still sidelined with his second concussion this month, so he could be out for a while.
Jan 27 - 8:47 AM

Shawn Thornton (groin) isn't expected to play Tuesday against Detroit.

The Panthers tough guy may be ready to return on Thursday versus Columbus. Thornton has been sidelined since Dec. 6 with a groin injury.
Jan 27 - 8:37 AM

Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) could be back on Thursday.

He practiced Monday and it's believed that he's another couple of days from being able to return from a shoulder injury. Gustavsson's last appearance for the Red Wings came on Nov. 5 against the New York Rangers.
Jan 27 - 8:30 AM

Jakub Kindl (elbow) practiced Monday, but he's not expected to play Tuesday.

He may be ready to return soon though, so Thursday's game at Tampa Bay could be a possibility. Kindl has been out of action since Dec. 27 due to an elbow injury.
Jan 27 - 8:27 AM

Johan Franzen (concussion) didn't take part in Monday's practice.

He doesn't have a timetable for his return. Franzen has missed the last seven games with a concussion.

Tomas Jurco (back) might be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Florida.

He skated at practice on Monday and hasn't played since Jan. 6 due to a back injury.
Jan 27 - 8:19 AM

Jimmy Howard (groin) was on the ice for about 15 minutes before practice on Monday.

"I'm definitely making strides," said Howard, who will make the trip to Florida. "It was nice to get back out there. Basically I just did some skating, but I haven't been on the ice since the injury so I'm just trying to get my feet under me." However, there is no timetable in place for his return and he's still expected to miss about month after getting hurt on Jan. 10 against Washington.

There is no timetable for when Marcus Foligno will be available to return from a hand injury.

However, he is getting closer to returning after missing the past 13 games.
Jan 27 - 7:57 AM

Brian Gionta (upper body) will be back in the lineup against Calgary on Tuesday night.

He has been on the shelf for the last 13 games with an upper-body injury that he said was not to his head. The Sabres captain has four goals and 11 points in 34 games this season.

Boston posted a 6-1-3 record going into the All-Star break.

The Bruins occupy the last Wild Cart spot in the Eastern Conference, but know that their recent success has to continue in order for them to lock down that position. "If you look at the situation we're still in, I think the carrot is still pretty easy to have," Patrice Bergeron said. "We need to gain ground. You look at the teams behind us and they're still winning, and they have games in hand. I think it's about realizing what the situation is. It's going to be close to 100 points if you want to make the playoffs this year, and the parity in the league is obvious. We don't need much to make us realize we need to keep winning."
Jan 27 - 7:48 AM

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) skated Monday and he could be ready to return on Tuesday night against Pittsburgh.

Coach Paul Maurice said the team would see how Perreault feels after the morning skate. It looked like Perreault was ready to play again because he skated with Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik and he saw time on the power play. He was red hot before getting injured against Chicago on Jan. 16 and he's hoping that streak can continue.
Jan 27 - 7:34 AM

Lubomir Visnovsky (UBI) is expected to return to the Islanders lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

The veteran defenseman has three goals and eight assists in 29 games played this season. Kyle Okposo will be placed on injured reserve with Visnovsky coming off IR.

Ryan Johansen has been selected as the first star of the week.

He had a busy week in Columbus as part of the NHL All-Star festivities. Johansen was the top pick in the draft by Blue Jackets teammate Nick Foligno, he was the winner of the Honda NHL Breakaway Challenge and he was the MVP of the game after he posted two goals and two assists in a 17-12 loss to Team Toews. However, he didn't have a point in two games before the break, which ended his 13-game scoring streak.
Jan 26 - 6:55 PM

The NHL chose Erik Karlsson as the second star of the week for the period ending Jan. 25.

He tallied three goals and 10 shots in two games for the Senators in an abbreviated week for the NHL because of the All-Star break. Karlsson has 11 goals and 33 points in 46 outings, but he was not invited to take part in Sunday's All-Star Game.

He potted three goals in two games for the Wild to extend his point streak to four straight contests. Parise has five goals and one assist during that span. He was not selected to take part in Sunday's All-Star Game, but he leads Minnesota with 19 markers and he has 36 points in 39 matches.
