Blue Jackets not getting caught up in win streak

Columbus Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards acknowledged after his team's practice Tuesday that its play has been improved lately. But he repeatedly stated that the Blue Jackets' focus was on their home game Tuesday against the Vancouver Canucks, not their five-game win streak, which is tied with the Pittsburgh Penguins for the NHL's longest current run.

"We've been fortunate enough to win some games, but this is our next biggest game," Richards said. "Our focus has to be on [Tuesday] and nothing else. When this one's over, we'll get ready for the next one. Our guys have done a good job focusing and managing that part of it. We can never get ahead of ourselves."

Dubinsky back for Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets go for their sixth straight win Tuesday when they host the Vancouver Canucks at Nationwide Arena.

Sergei Bobrovsky, named Monday as the NHL's First Star of the Week, will be back in net. In four games last week, he was 4-0-0 with a 0.77 goals-against average, .972 save percentage and one shutout.

Returning to the lineup is center Brandon Dubinsky, who has been out for a month with a knee injury. In 15 games, Dubinsky -- who last played Feb. 16 -- has a goal and seven assists.

Michalek out, Latendresse in for Senators

The Ottawa Sun reported Monday that Ottawa Senators forward Milan Michalek will miss the game against the Boston Bruins with a recurrence of the knee problems that sidelined him earlier in the season.

Michalek played two games since returning from a month-long absence due to a knee he originally injured in warm-ups prior to a game Feb. 13 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. According to the Sun, Michalek is considered day to day with his latest knee issues.

In Michalek's place looks to be Guillaume Latendresse, who has been out since Jan. 30 due to whiplash.

The newspaper also reported that Robin Lehner said he will start in goal. He stopped 33 of 35 shots in his previous start, a 3-2 victory against the New York Rangers on March 8.

Luongo gets nod for Canucks against Blue Jackets

Roberto Luongo will start in net for the Vancouver Canucks when they visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday, the team announced Monday.

Cory Schneider started the Canucks' previous three games -- all losses -- and has just two wins in his last eight starts. The Canucks have lost four straight and have been overtaken by the Minnesota Wild for first place in the Northwest Division.

Luongo hasn't played since March 3, when he allowed three goals on 24 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Calgary Flames. For the season, Luongo is 5-2-3 with a 2.19 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.

Schroeder, who played his first 22 NHL games this season, has two goals and three assists.

Report: Struggling Lightning not ready to be sellers

The mindset of the Tampa Bay Lightning at the NHL Trade Deadline is a topic now being addressed with more regularity.

Inconceivably, the Lightning sit near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings -- eight points adrift in both the Southeast Division and the Eastern Conference -- thanks, in large part, to a 4-13-1 streak that has all but erased memories of their rather torrid start to the season.

Yet, general manager Steve Yzerman still believes his club has the goods to develop into a Stanley Cup Playoffs-caliber team.

Sens in tricky position ahead of trade deadline

The Ottawa Senators enter Sunday sixth in the Eastern Conference with a 6-2-2 mark in their last 10 games, and they've continued winning despite losing their best forward (Jason Spezza, back), their best defenseman (Erik Karlsson, Achilles tendon) and starting goaltender (Craig Anderson, ankle) to injuries. The team also is missing forward Guillaume Latendresse (neck) and defenseman Mike Lundin (concussion).

As the 2013 Trade Deadline approaches, Ottawa general manager Bryan Murray finds himself in an interesting position: Does he look to replace the injured players? Or does he wait it out with the roster he has and hope Spezza and Anderson return -- Karlsson is out for the season -- prior to the Stanley Cup Playoffs?

"You make judgments accordingly," Murray told the Ottawa Sun. "I have to see if [Spezza] is going to come back in a time frame that will help us. I have to see if Latendresse and Lundin are going to be ready to play.

"If our numbers are getting close to our regular lineup [in the near future], then you probably have more ambition, if you're in the playoff hunt, to say, 'Let's make sure we make it and let's pay the price to do it.'"

Leighton recalled by Flyers, could start Sunday

The Philadelphia Flyers opted to stay off the ice Sunday morning, ahead of their game Sunday night against the visiting Buffalo Sabres (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2), one day after their 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins, their third straight defeat.

After the game Saturday, coach Peter Laviolette convened a team meeting, followed by the players having a private meeting.

The defeat dropped the Flyers to 11th in the Eastern Conference standings, and after entering the week with two straight wins, they were swept in games against the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Bruins, two of which they held leads in only to see them given away.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
