Ryan Miller believes he'll be traded before deadline

Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller said Thursday he believes he's likely to be dealt before the NHL Trade Deadline on March 5.

Miller has been the subject of trade rumors since prior to the season because he can become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

If Miller is not traded, he could re-sign with Buffalo; however, if he goes elsewhere the Sabres would get nothing in return.

Amid injuries, rumors, business as usual for Islanders

Life without John Tavares begins for the New York Islanders on Thursday when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first game for both teams following the Olympic break. New York has lost six straight games at Nassau Coliseum, while Toronto has won two straight and 11 of 14.

The Islanders may soon be looking at life without forward Thomas Vanek and defenseman Andrew MacDonald. Each player is rumored to be headed elsewhere by the NHL Trade Deadline on March 5 at 3 p.m.

"Is it in the back of your mind? I'm sure it is. If [I said it wasn't] I'd be lying," Vanek told reporters. "I know what's ahead and what could happen, but once you come to the rink you block it out."

Islanders coach Jack Capuano has no intention on sitting Vanek to protect him from injury.

"We need to go about our business," Capuano said.

Sharks get Couture, Torres back; Hertl skates

The San Jose Sharks are set to have forwards Logan Couture and Raffi Torres back in their lineup when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday.

It's the first game out of the Olympic break for each team.

Couture hasn't played since Jan. 5 because of a hand injury which required surgery. He had a five-game point streak when he came out of the lineup, including goals in four straight games from Dec. 29-Jan. 4. He'll center the second line between Patrick Marleau and Marty Havlat.

"Last night, it was difficult going to sleep just thinking about how exciting it is to get out and play in an NHL game again," Couture said Thursday, according to "It feels like I haven't played in like three years."

Gaborik's return provides boost for Blue Jackets

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Marian Gaborik is expected to start out on the fourth line in his return to the lineup Thursday against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

The Blue Jackets and Devils are among four teams in the Metropolitan Division separated by two points, and Gaborik's return after missing the past 22 games with a broken collarbone is a key addition for a Columbus team that starts Thursday three points out of the second wild-card berth in the Eastern Conference.

Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards liked the way his top three lines were playing prior to the Olympic break, so Gaborik will begin the game playing alongside Mark Letestu and Derek MacKenzie.

Canadiens' Price to miss two games with injury

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price will miss the next two games with a lower-body injury.

Price left the morning skate early Wednesday and did not return.

"It's a lower-body injury that he aggravated during the Olympics," coach Michel Therrien said. "We want to ensure that he's completely healthy when he returns to the lineup. His situation is one that we'll be evaluating day by day. We'll check on his status for practice on Friday ahead of the game on Saturday [vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs]."

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
