Not the best sign: Vincent Lecavalier left the Flyers' trip in order to get his back evaluated in Philadelphia.
Whether that ends up bringing good news or bad news, we'll need to wait. Perhaps a specific window of return will be known in the next few days? He has 14 points (including nine goals) in 22 games this season.
Brandon Dubinsky C CLS 2 Hrs
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky will play against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday.
Dubinsky had a maintenance day on Sunday, but it appears that he'll be good to go tomorrow. He fills an impressive array of categories, so fantasy owners - particularly in leagues with stats such as hits - are breathing a sigh of relief. Matt Calvert is also available Sunday.
Chris Kelly C BOS 2 Hrs
Boston Bruins center Chris Kelly has been placed on the long-term injured reserve with a broken ankle.
That didn't take long. This means he'll be out at least 10 games, which would keep him sidelined until at least Dec. 31. A Pascal Dupuis from Saturday broke Kelly's ankle.
Ilya Bryzgalov G EDM 3 Hrs
While an exact return date isn't clear, it sounds like Ilya Bryzgalov (upper body) is feeling "much better."
"Every day it's getting better and better, so hopefully soon... I'm pretty happy to be playing again," Bryzgalov said. He had an up-and-down return to action on the weekend of Dec. 2, but he remains an intriguing mystery as a depth goalie option.
Chris Kelly C BOS 3 Hrs
It turns out that Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly's lower-body injury is a broken ankle, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
Kelly's injury flew under the radar (understandably) amid the chaos of Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pascal Dupuis slashed him on the play.
