Jan 18 - 12:24 PM

Robin Lehner is expected to start for Buffalo Thursday night.

The Sabres are coming off their bye week and Lehner didn't play in their final game prior to it, so this will be his first appearance since Jan. 9. He has a 9-16-6 record, 2.94 GAA, and .910 save percentage in 33 games this season.

Anton Khudobin will be in net for the Bruins on Thursday against the Islanders.

Jan 18 - 12:08 PM

Joonas Korpisalo will probably start for the Blue Jackets on Thursday.

That hasn't been confirmed, but Korpisalo was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate and that's usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. It would be Korpisalo's first start since Dec. 31.
Jan 18 - 12:06 PM

Ryan Murray's upper-body injury is a back problem.

Murray was on the ice for a single drill during Wednesday's practice. It doesn't seem like he's close to returning.
Jan 18 - 12:04 PM

Josh Bailey (lower body) will return to the Islanders' lineup on Thursday.

Bailey missed four straight contests. He's been outstanding this season with 12 goals and 50 points in 42 games. Be sure to put him back into your lineup if you have him.
Jan 18 - 12:02 PM

Jaroslav Halak will be in the crease for the Islanders Thursday night.

Halak surrendered four goals on a staggering 42 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to New Jersey. He fell to 13-13-2 with a 3.22 GAA and .906 save percentage in 29 contests this season.
Jan 18 - 12:00 PM

Michal Neuvirth will be between the pipes for the Flyers Thursday night versus Toronto.

It's a rare start for Neuvirth, who has acted as Brian Elliott's understudy this season. Elliott has struggled recently though, which likely contributed to the decision to give Neuvirth the nod.
Jan 18 - 11:21 AM

Keith Kinkaid will get the nod for the Devils Thursday night.

Kinkaid is being rewarded for stopping 25 of 26 shots in a 4-1 win over the Islanders on Tuesday. It was a strong outing in what has been a mixed season for him. Additionally, Cory Schneider just recovered from an illness. Kinkaid has a 6-3-2 record, 3.10 GAA and .901 save percentage in 12 contests.

Sidney Crosby registered two assists in the Penguins' 5-3 defeat to Anaheim on Wednesday.

Jan 18 - 10:36 AM

Evgeni Malkin scored a goal in a 5-3 win against Anaheim Wednesday night.

Malkin has only been held off the scoresheet twice in his last eight games. The goal on Wednesday was also the 20th of his campaign. This is the 10th time in his career that he's reached the 20-goal milestone.
