Evgeni Nabokov did not dress for last night's game with a lower body injury. He will not play today. Meanwhile, Brian Boucher won his third game in three tries. He has allowed just one goal this year. He is worth a flyer for this week if you need goaltending.

 

Jonathan Cheechoo missed the game with an upper body injury.

 

Brian Gionta left last night's game with an upper body injury, but is expected to play today.

 

Mike Van Ryn will miss the next month or so with an apparent concussion. He was hit from behind into the boards last night.

 

Joe Sakic left last night's contest midway through, as his back was acting up. TJ Hensick was still in the lineup though, and he picked up an assist.

 

Manny Legace was back between the pipes for St. Louis, but allowed four goals on 30 shots. He'll get rolling again, he just needs a couple of games. Ben Bishop was sent down.

 

Kristian Huselius missed last night's game with a foot injury. He is day to day.

 

Nikita Filatov scored two goals and an assist for Syracuse last night.

Ryan Shannon had a sluggish start in the AHL this year, disappointed at being cut by the Sens. He's turned it around though after two points in three games. He is on an eight-game point streak with 12 points in that span, including three last night. He should be the first recall when an injury strikes.

 

Sens prospect Ilya Zubov also has 14 points in the AHL this year, in 11 contests.

 

Kyle Turris got back in the lineup last night and played 12:29. He was a minus-1. Kevin Porter was a healthy scratch.

 

Meanwhile, Mikkel Boedker played nearly 23 minutes and scored twice. He played over eight minutes on the power play with Jokinen and Doan.

 

Martin Erat missed last night's contest with an upper body injury.

 

Cam Barker has three points in four games since being recalled.

 

Both Daniel Briere and Andreas Nodl returned to the Philly lineup last night. Briere scored, while Nodl played 15:10
