Expecting to depart for Calgary after their 5-2 victory against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, the Canucks were stuck in Vancouver as they waited for weather conditions to improve prior to their game against the Calgary Flames 8 p.m. ET Sunday at Scotiabank Saddledome.
On the Canucks' official Twitter account, the club announced its flight was scheduled to depart at 3:45 p.m. ET.
Tallas, 39, was signed to a one-day tryout after Markstrom's equipment was left off his flight from San Antonio to Fort Lauderdale on Sunday. Markstrom had been called up from San Antonio, the Panthers' American Hockey League affiliate, to replace Jose Theodore, who sustained a leg injury in Saturday's 6-2 loss against Carolina.
Vanek was absent from the Sabres' 4-3 shootout victory against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, and the team hoped he'd able to face the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Rolston said Vanek is close but just not ready.
"We're hoping [for Tuesday at the Carolina Hurricanes]," Rolston said. "For his best interest and the best interest of the team, we decided to hold him out [Sunday]. He won't be able to go, but we're very hopeful he'll be able to go on Tuesday."
The (Bergen) Record reported late last week that Brodeur would not join the team for Monday's game at the Toronto Maple Leafs, and general manager Lou Lamoriello told the newspaper Sunday that Brodeur was out for Tuesday's home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
SUNRISE, Fla. -- After losing three players to injury in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, the Florida Panthers called up two players up from San Antonio of the American Hockey League for Sunday's rematch at BB&T Center.
The reigning NHL scoring champion and MVP reported he "feels pretty good" after going through an optional practice at the Penguins' suburban practice facility.
"It was good to practice on the ice today with the team and [absorb] contact a little bit," Malkin said in his first comments to the media since losing his balance and sliding violently into the boards during the third period of a win against the Florida Panthers on Feb. 22. "And I feel good now."
For Taylor, who took the loss in a 4-0 defeat against the Phoenix Coyotes on Feb. 18, it will be the second start of his NHL career.
"I feel that he had two great periods in Phoenix," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "Joey MacDonald played quite a few games for us. Kipper [Miikka Kiprusoff] is getting healthier and he's getting closer, so we felt that at the same time as giving a break to Joey MacDonald, to have another look at Danny Taylor would be a good idea."
Hall, who injured his hamstring Friday night against the St. Louis Blues, is officially listed as day-to-day, but with the Oilers in the midst of a nine-game, 16-day road trip, Krueger said he'd rather give Hall some extra time off in order to avoid a more long-term injury.
"Taylor is still feeling a strain that we want to err to the cautious side," Krueger said. "This type of injury, we can give him four days of rest as opposed to forcing him in today. He's day-to-day but we expect him back very soon."
Butler had one goal and one assist in 14 games this season, averaging 9:58 of ice time per game.
Butler is in his first season with the Devils after spending the previous three seasons with the Ottawa Senators. He signed a two-way contract with the Devils in August, and had 16 goals and 27 points in 37 games with the Devils' American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany Devils.
It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy. Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
