Mike Smith – injured, did not dress. More in tomorrow's ramblings (will try and put some up tonight) 


Still waiting on final confirmation from the sponsors for the Playoff Pool. I will confirm details up on this Ultimate Pool very soon. 


Pat Quinn will coach Team Canada at the next under-18s


According to the Bruins Blog , Marc Savard will miss the club’s next two games, following a CT scan today at Massachusetts General Hospital that confirmed an unspecified injury to his lower back and mid-torso.


Wade Redden left last night's contest in the first period with a leg injury and played briefly in the second period before leaving for good. No word other than that. 


Want to ask me a question about the playoffs? Ask it via the Hockey News mailbag. Click here and ask away – answers will be posted tomorrow. 


Patrik Elias is expected back in the lineup for tonight's rematch against the Pens.


Crosby did not know as of yesterday afternoon whether he will be in the lineup tonight.


David Legwand (foot) will not play tonight and is questionable for Friday.


The Preds still are not saying who will start tonight, but it will be either Ellis or Rinne.


Radim Vrbata has not scored in 16 contests.


Both Robert Lang and Cam Barker will be gametime decisions tonight.


Kristian Huselius watch: 8:30 last night. Calgary was shut out in an important divisional game. Keenan is picking a fight with the wrong player. Huselius is not a rookie in need of a lesson.


Ryan Getzlaf is questionable for tomorrow's contest with a shoulder injury.


Ryan Carter had the pins removed from his wrist yesterday and hopes to be back in the lineup within a week. He was clicking on the second line with Teemu Selanne before his injury, so his status is worth watching.


📢 advertisement:

Dominik Hasek will miss tonight's contest with the flu. Jimmy Howard has been recalled to back up Osgood.


Both Holmstrom and Filppula are no-gos for tonight. Holmstrom apparently left practice yesterday very frustrated. Filppula hopes to be back this weekend. Both are suffering from groin injuries.


Eric Belanger returned and played 14:57 last night and picked up an assist.


Pierre-Marc Bouchard missed his first game in 198 last night. He had the flu.


Pavol Demitra has a sore leg and was unable to play last night.


Martin Gerber gave up three goals in the first period and got the hook. Ray Emery gave up four goals in the second period. The team decided neither of them could stop a puck so in the third period they only allowed two shots. Another game like that, and I would not be surprised to see Brian Elliott get re
