Tuukka Rask G BOS 5 Hrs
Rask made 30 saves on 31 shots in Saturday's win over the Kings.
Someone call the cops, this guy just got away with highway robbery. Rask is red-hot right now, posting a 3-0-1 record in his last four appearances, stopping 143 of 149 shots in that span (.960 save percentage). Rask is an automatic roll on a Bruins team that has won eight of their last 10 games.
Bryan Bickell LW CHI 7 Hrs
Updating a previous report, Bickell will play Saturday against the Sharks, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Bickell was previously reported to be a scratch, but it now sounds like he'll suit up for the evening tilt. Dennis Rasmussen will instead be the scratch.
Bryan Bickell LW CHI 7 Hrs
Bickell (undisclosed) will be a scratch for Saturday's matchup with the Sharks, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Bickell has enjoyed a productive month of January (eight points) on the third line for the Blackhawks, but he'll sit out the evening tilt in San Jose. Dennis Rasmussen will move into the lineup to take his place.
Kris Russell D CGY 8 Hrs
Russell (illness) is taking part in pregame warmups, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.
Russell had been declared a game time call for the Saturday evening matchup, and his presence in pregame warmups suggests that he'll likely be good to go.
Jiri Hudler RW CGY 8 Hrs
Hudler (illness) will not play Saturday against the Oilers.
Hudler had been pegged a game time decision in advance of the Saturday evening tilt, but it sounds like the recent illness got the best of him, and he'll sit this one out. Reserve forwards David Wolf and Sven Baertschi may see extra time as a result, but it's currently unclear how head coach Bob Hartley plans to restructure his lines.
Matt Calvert LW CLS 10 Hrs
Calvert (illness) will not play Saturday against the Lightning.
Calvert revealed Wednesday that he's been battling a sinus infection for several weeks, though it hadn't cost him any time previously. Consider Calvert day-to-day until more information becomes available.
Justin Fontaine RW MIN 12 Hrs
Fontaine lower-body injury is a groin ailment, which will prevent him from playing in Sunday's game against the Canucks, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Groin injuries tend to linger and can be quite troubling for skaters, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Fontaine's absence lasted multiple games. For now, the Wild will consider Fontaine day-to-day and see if he can make enough improvement to resume skating.
Ryan Suter D MIN 12 Hrs
Coach Mike Yeo indicated that Suter (lower body) isn't certain to play Sunday against the Canucks, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The injury had previously put Suter's status in question for Thursday's game against the Flames, but he ended up suiting up, though he saw his a nearly six-minute reduction in ice time from his usual average. Yeo said the team would revisit Suter's condition Sunday morning before a decision on his availability is made.
Derrick Pouliot D PIT 12 Hrs
Pouliot was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Saturday.
With Christian Ehrhoff dealing with a possible concussion, Pouliot will join the squad to give the team seven healthy options on defense. The lineup spot for Sunday's game against the Predators will likely come down to Pouliot and Scott Harrington, who filled in for Ehrhoff on Friday night.
Adam Henrique C NJ 12 Hrs
Henrique (hand) said he will be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Henrique is still experiencing some soreness with his left hand, but he'll tough it out and presumably see his usual minutes in the high teens. He was fortunate to avoid a fracture after X-rays on the hand came back negative following Friday's game.
