Coyotes must make homestand count

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes haven't won three games in a row all season. But if they are going force themselves back into the Western Conference playoff conversation as the final month of the season begins, three home wins this week are all but mandatory.

It begins Tuesday against the surging Los Angeles Kings, who beat the Coyotes twice in Los Angeles during a seven-game losing streak that sent Phoenix's season spiraling south. Phoenix will host the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday and Colorado Avalanche on Saturday before playing seven of their final 10 on the road.

Kennedy slots into Crosby's spot

PITTSBURGH -- Tyler Kennedy will slide into Sidney Crosby's spot on the Pittsburgh Penguins' top line for the Penguins' game Tuesday against the Buffalo Sabres.

Kennedy skated during practice Tuesday morning at center, between Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis. However, coach Dan Bylsma said he could insert Dustin Jeffrey on that line if there's an important faceoff, as Kennedy is not an experienced center, and has taken just 16 faceoffs this season.

Crosby sustained a broken jaw during a game Sunday against the New York Islanders and will be out indefinitely. Coach Dan Bylsma said Crosby was released from the hospital Monday morning.

Alfredsson not worrying about trade deadline

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators have played three one-goal games this season and woke up Tuesday seeded fourth and fifth, respectively, in the Eastern Conference.

So any thoughts about the trade deadline Wednesday has to be on the back burner.

“I’m sure it is for every team in the League a little bit,” Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson said about potential distractions after his team’s morning skate at TD Garden. “But our goal is to keep an upbeat locker room and whatever happens, happens. We can’t control that, obviously. I like everybody we have here. We like the situation we’re in here with more players getting closer to returning from injuries and joining us on trips. So even if we don’t do anything, we’re still going to have some nice additions.”

Ottawa is starting a seven-game road trip. The Bruins lead the Senators by four points in the Eastern standings and have won the prior three meetings between the teams.

Here’s a look at the projected lineups:

Hurricanes expect Bergeron to step right in

RALEIGH N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes acquired defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron from the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday in exchange for forward Adam Hall and a seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Bergeron joins his seventh NHL team and is expected to be in the Carolina lineup Tuesday against the Washington Capitals.

"We're bringing him in here for the power play," said Carolina coach Kirk Muller, whose team has an NHL-worst 12.7-percent conversion rate with the man advantage.

"Basically, he shoots the puck and he's got a cannon. He's a veteran guy and I've worked with him before."

Islanders can take eighth with point(s) against Jets

The New York Islanders will find themselves in eighth place in the Eastern Conference at the end of Tuesday night with either a victory or a post-regulation loss to the Winnipeg Jets at Nassau Coliseum.

The Islanders begin play Tuesday in ninth, but have 37 points, tied with the eighth-place New York Rangers, who aren't in action again until Wednesday.

The Jets hold down the third seed by virtue of leading the Southeast Division, but they've lost three straight and are four points ahead of the Carolina Hurricanes and Washington Capitals, who face each other Tuesday.

Here's how the lineups could look for the Islanders and Jets:

Report: Kings' Mitchell won't return this season

ESPN.com is reporting that Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell will not play this season due to a knee injury.

Mitchell had surgery on his knee in the offseason and reinjured it during the lockout. He had been trying to rehabilitate his leg during the season, but ESPN's report states that Mitchell had arthroscopic surgery on the injured knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

The veteran blueliner had career-bests of five goals and 24 points in 76 games last season, and was a plus-7 in helping the Kings win the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Lecavalier joins Lightning for morning skate

TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier, out the past eight games with a lower-body injury, was on the ice for the Lightning's morning skate prior to Tampa Bay hosting the Florida Panthers on Tuesday at Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Lecavalier wore a red jersey, symbolizing he was cleared for contact, and took part in all the team drills.

"I was sitting there about to address the team and then I see the red jersey and there's Vinny," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "It was pretty exciting to see him there. Hopefully he is feeling well. He's not going [Tuesday] but there is hope for Thursday."
