Wings, Lightning chasing momentum; Zetterberg eyes 300th

Blues' Tarasenko set to return against Kings

At the Rink: Devils at Islanders

NEW YORK – The New York Islanders will be without center John Tavares for the third consecutive game when they face the New Jersey Devils at Barclays Center on Tuesday.

Tavares took part in New York's optional morning skate, but coach Jack Capuano said he will not play. He missed the Islanders' 3-2 shootout loss at New Jersey on Saturday and their 2-1 home loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday with what Capuano said were flu-like symptoms.

"He got hit hard and couldn't recover for a few days," Capuano said. "He started to turn the corner in the last couple of days. We wanted to get him out of bed and get a little exercise, and we'll see how he is moving forward.

"He's been laid up there for a little while. We had people check on him. We had some more opinions, more check-ups, just tests, and everything was negative, which is good."

At the Rink: Avalanche at Panthers

Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie will return from a three-game suspension against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday at BB&T Center (7:30 p.m. ET; ALT, FS-F).

Barrie was suspended for a hit against Anaheim Ducks defenseman Simon Despres in an Oct. 16 game. Colorado lost two of the three.

"It was frustrating. Three games doesn't seem like much, but when you're sitting out it seems like a long time," Barrie told the Avalanche website after practice Monday. "It's kind of unfortunate that the stretch of games we had seemed to be spaced out a bit. It was definitely a long wait for me, so I'm excited to get back in there."
