Manny Legace left the game last night after suffering a 'bruise' in a collision with Patrick Sharp. Marek Schwarz came in and allowed five goals on 13 shots. Legace is expected to start on Saturday.
Chris Campoli left last night's contest with a shoulder injury late in the first period. It is unknown the extent of the damage.
Dustin Byfuglien snapped out of a two points in 12 games funk with a three-point night yesterday. Of course, I dropped him in the expert league earlier in the day after seeing his ice time drop and zero penalty minutes. He played 20 minutes last night. Difficult to say if that's the ice time to expect for the next few games, as this outburst came out of nowhere.
Kris Versteeg left last night's contest with a bruised shoulder. He'll be on the shelf for the next two games at least.
Patrick Lalime has won two games in a row and will get the start again Friday.
Jack Skille had his second two-point effort in five games last night.
Atlanta assigned Jim Slater to Chicago of the AHL for conditioning.
LA assigned Peter Harrold back to Manchester before he could get into a game. He is an offensive defenseman to watch.
The Islanders sent Jeff Tambellini back to Bridgeport.
The Senators sent Ilya Zubov to Binghamton.
The Canucks sent Rick Rypien and Mike Brown to Manitoba and recalled Mason Raymond. He had three points in three AHL games during his brief span there.
Fredrik Modin could return to the Columbus lineup tonight. He will be a gametime decision, but he is getting closer.
Nik Antropov left Tuesday's contest after blocking a shot with his foot. X-rays were negative, but he is questionable for tonight's contest.
Some time over the next 12 hours, the site will be down. Probably twice and probably for a couple of hours. I will know about the time as it approaches. The forum may be down even longer. But it is just as I change hosts. Once I change hosts, the site will be more reliable. Changes should be finalized by this afternoon. There is a tiny chance that you may lose a post or two in the forum, but we will try to avoid that.
