Grabner to get more time on Islanders' top line

After skating much of the season with Matt Moulson on the left wing, the New York Islanders' top line, featuring captain John Tavares and right wing Kyle Okposo, could be getting a slight makeover for their game Tuesday against the Buffalo Sabres.

During the team's morning skate, Tavares and Okposo matched up with Michael Grabner, who leads the team through five games with five assists, seven points and a plus-5 rating. Considered among the fastest skaters in the League, Grabner is a definite departure from Moulson, who has flanked Tavares for much of the star center's career.

After contributing three straight 30-goal seasons by parking himself in front of the opposition's crease, Moulson is off to a slow start to the 2013-14 season, with one goal and no assists in five games. Grabner, on the other hand, is off to a fantastic start and using his speed in a way that Islanders coach Jack Capuano thinks could benefit his top line.

Gaborik expected in lineup for Blue Jackets

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Marian Gaborik is expected to be in the lineup for the team's game at the Detroit Red Wings, according to the team's website.

Gaborik sat out practice Monday with the flu and missed the team's flight to Detroit later that day.

But the Blue Jackets now report that their leading scorer is expected to board a flight Tuesday and join the team in Detroit before the game.

In four games this season, the 31-year-old leads the team in assists (four) and points (six), and is tied for the team lead with two goals.

Columbus went 4-0-1 last season against Detroit and hasn't lost at Joe Louis Arena since March 26, 2012.

Oilers will sit Yakupov again against Capitals

Nail Yakupov, the first pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game, Edmonton Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said Monday, ahead of his team's game against the Washington Capitals.

"I really liked our group of forwards last game," Eakins told reporters in Washington. "There was absolutely nobody there that deserves to come out. So we'll stick with the same group and that's the challenge of the player. Not just for [Yakupov], for all of our guys. It's such a privilege to play in this League and you want to give everything you have every night so you never end up like Wally Pipp."

Pipp was a first baseman for the New York Yankees who famously missed a game and was replaced by Lou Gehrig in the starting lineup. Gehrig went on to set a record for consecutive games played.

Wild recall Kuemper from AHL Iowa

The Minnesota Wild on Monday recalled goaltender Darcy Kuemper from Iowa of the American Hockey League for the second time in the past four days.

With No. 1 goalie Niklas Backstrom ailing due to a knee strain, Kuemper was recalled Oct. 10 and served as Josh Harding's backup in a 5-1 defeat of the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Kuemper was then returned to Iowa, but with Backstrom apparently still not ready to dress for the Wild's game Monday against the Buffalo Sabres, the 23-year-old is back again. He was 1-2-0 with a 2.08 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in six games last season.

In two games this season Enroth is 0-1-1 with a 2.95 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.

The decision to play Enroth Monday likely means Ryan Miller will start Tuesday at the New York Islanders.
