Scott Hartnell (foot) will visit a doctor Friday, where he is hoping to receive clearance to resume skating on Saturday.

If everything goes smoothly he could be back in the lineup as soon as next Wednesday in Pittsburgh, which mark his return at just under four weeks since he underwent surgery on his broken foot. "I'm able to walk a little bit now without the boot, which is a good sign," Hartnell said. "I'm able to do cardio and workout, so that's been good." Everything may not happen that quickly, but we'll keep you posted.
