Kings' projected lineup for game vs. Coyotes

Coming off their 5-2 win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday, it's likely the Los Angeles Kings stick with the same lineup when they face the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday.

That means rookie Tyler Toffoli, who had one shot on goal in 13:20 of ice time Saturday in his NHL debut, will remain in the lineup.

Goalie Jonathan Quick, who was pulled after allowing three goals on 12 shots in 28:34 of ice time, will make the start.

Injury keeping Lecavalier off the ice

Vincent Lecavalier wouldn't give much detail on exactly what his lower-body injury is, but said it's keeping him off the ice.

"It's more of a waiting game and waiting and rest it," the Tampa Bay Lightning captain told reporters in Tampa on Monday. "I can still do some other stuff. Skating right now is not a possibility."

Lecavalier will miss his third straight game since when his Lightning host the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS). He sustained the injury during a March 12 game against the Florida Panthers.

"It didn't look like anything but obviously something did happen," he said. "I guess you could say it's kind of a fluky thing. … I knew something was wrong right away. I went to the bench, might have played another shift after [but I] knew something was wrong."

Blackhawks could look to add center depth

Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman is staying busy in the run-up to the April 3 NHL trade deadline, telling the Chicago Tribune he's "had tons of conversations," but that no moves are imminent.

"I'd like to add to the mix as opposed to trade players away," Bowman told the Tribune. "We would consider anything that would give us an improved chance to win, but we've played really well. If we don't end up making a trade I'd be comfortable with the group we have here."

The Blackhawks are 2-2-0 since their record-setting 24-game streak of games with a point to open the regular season ended, but still have a five-point lead on the Anaheim Ducks for the top spot in the Western Conference.

If Bowman does make any move, he said finding a center to play on the third or fourth lines might be an option.

"Probably just be depth-type moves," he said. "We have had a nice, consistent group on defense … [and] up front, we have some different looks. Perhaps some centermen maybe as a depth thing in case you run into injuries. There's really not one area that's a glaring area [in need] of improvement."

Report: Lupul to play for Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will return to action Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets after missing 25 games with a broken arm, TSN reports.

"It's not like it was before it was broken, but it's at a point where the doctor thinks it's safe to play," Lupul told TSN on Friday after his third practice.

"I've been shooting and practicing for probably a week now so the next test is to go out for a game. They've asked me what I felt and I said I felt confident that it's strong enough and so do they. I'm not going to think about it at all."

Lupul is projected to skate on a lie with Nazem Kadri and Nikolai Kulemin.

Hurricanes claim Hall on waivers from Lightning

The Carolina Hurricanes have claimed Adam Hall on waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team announced Saturday morning.

Hall had four assists in 20 games for the Lightning this season. When he packs up his gear, he won't have to take it very far -- the Hurricanes are in Tampa, Fla., and play the Lightning on Saturday night so Hall could make his Carolina debut against his former club.

"Adam gives us an added penalty killer," Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford said on Twitter (@HurricanesGM). "He plays the wing, but can also play center and is a very good face-off man."

Wild's Zucker skates, questionable to return to lineup

Though Minnesota Wild left wing Jason Zucker remains questionable to return to the lineup Saturday against the Colorado Avalanche, the team did receive a positive sign Friday when the 21-year-old forward joined the team for its morning skate at Xcel Energy Center.

Zucker left Tuesday's game against the Anaheim Ducks after receiving an illegal hit to the head from Corey Perry in the second period, and did not return. Perry was given a four-game suspension by the NHL's Departement of Player Safety on Wednesday.

Projected lineups for Blackhawks, Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets will look to extend their eight-game point streak (5-0-3) when they face the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday at Nationwide Arena.

Aiding in their effort will be Artem Anisimov, who has missed the past three games with a lower-body injury. He's second on the team with six goals.

For the Blackhawks, Jimmy Hayes will slide into the spot vacated by injured Patrick Sharp. Hayes, playing for Rockford of the American Hockey League, is tied for the team lead with 22 goals

"He brings a presence," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said of Hayes. "He's got some size to him and he's been on a tear down in the minors there, producing at a real good rate. [He] gets to the net well and I think he's got a real nice set of hands at the net."

The Blackhawks announced Corey Crawford would start in goal, and forward Rostislav Olesz, who has not played this season, has been assigned to Rockford.

Here is how the teams could look when they take the ice Thursday:
