Kari Lehtonen will get the start in Friday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Many expected Antti Niemi to be between the pipes tonight because Lehtonen played in last night's shootout loss to Chicago, but the Stars have opted to go back to him tonight. Lehtonen has an 18-22-7 record with a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage this season.

Slater Koekkoek will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Koekkoek was recalled on an emergency basis earlier today, but he won't suit up tonight. Steven Stamkos, Tyler Johnson and Cedric Paquette are all out with injuries.

Frank Corrado will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the New York Islanders.

The Penguins will go with Brian Dumoulin, Justin Schultz, Ian Cole, Chad Ruhwedel, Cameron Gaunce and Mark Streit. Scott Wilson is also expected to watch the game from the press box.

Dan Girardi (ankle) will rejoin the Rangers on Saturday.

Girardi was sidelined for about a month. Now that he's healthy again, he's projected to play alongside Ryan McDonagh.
Mar 24 - 6:44 PM

Bryan Rust (upper body) will return to the Penguins lineup on Friday night.

He'll be skating on a line with Matt Cullen and Phil Kessel. Rust hasn't played in a game since Feb. 9. He has 12 goals and 25 points in 50 games.
Mar 24 - 6:40 PM

Jason Garrison (lower body) won't play in Friday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Garrison was injured in Thursday's game against the Boston Bruins. He's considered day-to-day right now.
Mar 24 - 6:36 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will be between the pipes in Friday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Vasilevskiy has dropped each of his last three decisions and he's given up four goals in each of those games. He has a 17-16-6 record with a 2.68 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage.
Mar 24 - 6:32 PM

Daniel O'Regan has been sent to the minors.

O'Regan has no points in two games with the Sharks. At the AHL level he has 20 goals and 52 points in 54 contests.
Mar 24 - 6:28 PM

Henrik Lundqvist (hip) plans to start on Sunday.

Goaltender Magnus Hellberg was returned to the minors on Thursday, so Lundqvist will likely serve as the backup netminder on Saturday before making his first start back. Lundqvist last played on March 7.
Mar 24 - 5:44 PM

Bryan Rust (upper body) is a game-time decision on Friday.

Rust last played on Feb. 9. He has 12 goals and 25 points in 50 games this season.
Mar 24 - 5:24 PM

The Penguins plan to start Marc-Andre Fleury Friday night.

Matt Murray got the nod on Thursday, so it's not surprising to see Fleury get a start here. Fleury has a 2.94 GAA and .911 save percentage in 35 contests this season.
Mar 24 - 5:22 PM

Aaron Ekblad (neck) didn't practice on Friday and is experiencing headaches.

Given that Ekblad only recently returned from a concussion, the news that he has headaches might understandably sound concerning, but Panthers coach Tom Rowe said it's unrelated. "He has the headaches because of the neck injury," Rowe said. "There’s no reason to rush him back." Ekblad also dealt with headaches when he suffered whiplash back in September and in that instance he initially thought he had a concussion.
Mar 24 - 5:20 PM

Dillon Dube has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Calgary Flames.

Dube has 20 goals and 55 points in 40 OHL contests. He was taken with the 56th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

The Vancouver Canucks have announced that Richard Bachman will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Bachman is with the Canucks because Jacob Markstrom is sidelined, though Ryan Miller has gotten the bulk of the work while Markstrom is out. Bachman has a 1.53 GAA and .955 save percentage in two games with the Canucks this season.
