Bertuzzi will play on a line with Datsyuk and Holmstrom.
The Sens have signed Nick Foligno to an entry-level deal. Even though his upside is 65 points, he rocketed up my fantasy prospects list to #39 because I really believe he will be in the NHL next year and you might see a decent 40-45 points right off the bat.
Patrick Elias' groin injury will keep him out of the lineup tonight, and with these types of injuries I would anticipate that we will not see him for at least a week. The Penguins may catch this team yet.
Guillaume Latendresse has scored five goals in his last six games.
Chris Mason will get the start tonight.
Last night, Marek Zidlicky played on a line with Vern Fiddler and David Legwand. This cost him ice time as he played just 13:30.
Dustin Brown is proving to be another streaky player. He has eight points in his last six games. This bodes well for LA's future – Cammalleri, Frolov, Brown and Kopitar are all streaky. When these youngsters start getting consistent, that is when the Kings will come into their own. When it happens, this team will be awesome.
Owen Nolan suffered a knee injury on Tuesday and should miss the next two contests.
Manny Fernandez will be out for the rest of the season. I told you to cut him loose!
Mark Parrish will be in the lineup tonight. He had a sore…finger.
Penguins have gone to overtime in their past nine Thursday games and a shootout in seven of those.
Paul Stastny is on a two-game pointless streak. (kidding)
This was out of the blue: Anze Kopitar returned to the Los Angeles lineup. He played just under 16 minutes but was held off the scoresheet. Despite his return, O'Sullivan continued his points streak to six games.
It is looking more and more like Avs reaguard Jordan Leopold will be gone for the rest of the season with his broken wrist. It's been a month and he has yet to even practice with the team.
The 'Hawks are close to signing Jack Skille. He'll likely play the final few games of the season for Norfolk, but it would be interesting to see him get a peek in Chicago. He'll make the team next season, but will be three years away from thinking of reaching his 75-point potential.
Radim Vrbata was back in the Chicago lineup but was a non-factor in his 15 minutes of ice time.
