Johnson may return during the team's homestand to close out the season next week, but there's also a chance that he could be done for the rest of the year.

Jarome Iginla had three assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over Buffalo.

He assisted on goals by John Mitchell, Matt Duchene and Brad Stuart. The 37-year-old has 26 goals and 55 points in 75 games this season.

Matt Duchene was relieved to finally have a big game on Saturday night.

Duchene picked up a goal and two assists in a 5-3 win over the Sabres. "I played no different than I have been," Duchene said. "It was one of those nights where things finally went in the net. Iggy and I haven't been on for many against, and I don't think we were on for a goal against on the (three-game Canada) road trip and we weren't tonight. We're getting tons of chances. It was real frustrating on the road trip not to be able to contribute, especially in those first two games where we could have been the difference. I know I took it real hard and I was disappointed, but hopefully it's not too late now."
