Loui Eriksson LW BOS 1 Hr
Loui Eriksson scored a goal for Boston in Thursday's 3-0 win over Washington.
The goal was the seventh of the campaign for Eriksson, who has missed Boston's last game with a heel infection. Brad Marchand and Gregory Campbell also found the back of the net for the Bruins in the victory.
Tuukka Rask G BOS 1 Hr
Tuukka Rask stopped all 16 shots he faced en route to a 3-0 shutout win over Washington Monday.
Shutout victories don't come much easier than this one, as the Bruins outshot the Capitals by a margin of 43-16 in the dominant performance. Rask improves his record to 27-14-4 with the clean sheet while his GAA is 2.13 and his save percentage is .928.
Henrik Sedin C VAN 4 Hrs
Henrik Sedin has gone 10 consecutive games without earning a point.
Sedin hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 14, which amounts to a span of 21 games. Henrik probably misses his brother, Daniel, but he was struggling before his twin got injured. He has nine goals and 40 points in 56 matches this season.
Brian Elliott G STL 4 Hrs
Brian Elliott understands that he won't get much playing time down the stretch with Ryan Miller on the Blues' roster.
"We've got a great goalie in 'Millsie' coming in and I think St. Louis is excited about it," said Elliott. "I have thought a lot about (playing time). I haven't really talked to the coaching staff about it, but like I always say, when you have that opportunity you have to make the most of it. ... It's a tough stretch those last 20 games. So I'll get to play, too, and I want to get there and do the best I can, and showcase what I have and try to get some wins for the team." Miller is a workhorse netminder and the Blues will give him plenty of starts in their pursuit of the Presidents' Trophy.
Marian Gaborik RW LA 5 Hrs
Marian Gaborik is slated to play with Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams in his first game with Los Angeles on Thursday night.
Dustin Brown will join Mike Richards and Jeff Carter on the second unit. The Kings appear to have some solid scoring potential on their top two lines now. Gaborik has six goals and 14 points in 22 games this season. Playing with Kopitar should give him a boost.
Rich Peverley C DAL 5 Hrs
Rich Peverley missed Tuesday's game because of a recurrence of the irregular heartbeat he had before the start of the 2013-14 campaign.
"He's been monitoring it the whole year and this might have been the first or second time it's come around," coach Lindy Ruff said. "But it's something he has to deal with, and it's something that obviously we're aware of." He's fine now though and it looks like he'll play on the top line against Vancouver on Thursday.
