Dubnyk back in goal for Oilers

DENVER -- Devan Dubnyk will start in goal for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday against the Colorado Avalanche.

He left the Oilers' game Sunday at the Chicago Blackhawks in the second period because of a sore neck following a collision with teammate Teemu Hartikainen after stopping the Blackhawks' Marian Hossa on a breakaway.

Dubnyk is 5-3-1 with a 2.24 goals-against average in 10 games against Colorado. The Oilers are 2-4-2 in the first eight games of their current nine-game trip which started Feb. 25 with a 3-2 overtime loss in Chicago.

Colorado right wing Milan Hejduk took part in the morning skate Tuesday and is expected to practice Wednesday. Hejduk is on injured reserve with a torso injury. He will miss his fifth consecutive game Tuesday, might be available for the Avs' game Thursday at the Minnesota Wild.

Here are the projected lineups for the Edmonton Oilers and Colorado Avalanche for their game Tuesday at Pepsi Center:

Duchene declares himself ready to return for Avs

DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene will be back in the lineup Thursday night to play against the Calgary Flames at Pepsi Center.

Duchene missed Tuesday's game at the San Jose Sharks because of a groin injury.

"I feel good to go," Duchene said Thursday morning after taking part in the pregame skate. "I felt like I had that step. The last game-and-a-half I felt pretty awful and I definitely feel better than that, so that's a positive. Let's hope it feels good throughout the game.

"I pushed it pretty hard (Thursday) and I'm usually pretty honest with myself. It's really hard for me to sit games out. Even last game it was really hard to be in the room just watching rather than being out there. It feels good enough to go, so that's the decision."

Landeskog expecting to practice Friday

DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog, last season's Calder Trophy winner, skated for the sixth consecutive day Wednesday. He is expected to practice Friday -- the Avalanche aren't practicing Thursday -- and he might accompany the team on a three-game trip that begins Saturday at the Los Angeles Kings.

Landeskog will miss his 11th consecutive game Wednesday night since suffering head and leg injuries Jan. 26 on a hit by San Jose Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart.

"It's been feeling better and better," Landeskog said in his first public comments since getting hurt. "The hands aren't quite there yet, the feet aren't quite there yet and my lungs aren't quite there yet, but I'm working on it."

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
