"Nothing's really changed," Holmgren said. "He's not going to be able to play [Tuesday]. We'll see how he is [Tuesday]."
Simmonds also sat out Saturday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes. He has two goals and three assists in eight games.
The Red Wings' defense corps has been hit hard by injuries. Smith will be the sixth blueliner to miss time due to injury already this season.
Smith is second on the Wings with a plus-4 rating, and he has one assist in eight games.
Marchand crashed awkwardly into the boards midway through the second period of Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs and did not return. Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the game that Marchand had been removed for precautionary reasons and that he could have played in the third period if the Bruins were "in a pinch."
Marchand leads the Bruins with five goals in eight games.
The initial diagnosis was for Callahan to miss 10-14 days.
"It definitely could have been a lot worse than it was," Callahan said last Thursday when he learned of the diagnosis.
Luongo, 33, stopped 27 of 28 shots on home ice Friday night in Vancouver's 2-1 shootout win against the Chicago Blackhawks. That victory came two nights after Luongo blanked the Colorado Avalanche in a 3-0 victory. He is 2-0-2 with a 1.46 goals-against average and .944 save percentage in five games.
Cory Schneider, who was labeled the club's No. 1 goaltender prior to the start of the season, hasn't seen any action since allowing four goals on 27 shots in a 4-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 27. Schneider has a 3.13 GAA and .897 save percentage in four appearances.
Luongo has been the subject of trade rumors for several months. Canucks general manager Mike Gillis was in Washington on Sunday afternoon to watch the Capitals host the Pittsburgh Penguins.
CALGARY -- The Chicago Blackhawks will try to snap their two-game losing streak against the Calgary Flames on Saturday night, but they’ll have to do so without center Dave Bolland.
Bolland, who has three goals and four points in eight games this season, suffered a lower-body injury in the third period of Chicago's 2-1 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Friday and is day-to-day according to coach Joel Quenneville
"Bolly's out tonight," Quenneville said, adding he will continue to travel with the team to San Jose, where they face the Sharks on Tuesday.
"You're always concerned about the worst but he's not doing too bad today."
Bolland was anchoring the second line with Bryan Bickell andPatrick Kane. Not wanting to shake up his roster too much, Quenneville suggestedAndrew Shaw will be promoted to the second line while Marcus Kruger would also be promoted up the chart.
"We don't want to mix up too much if the lines," he said. "We'll probably move everybody up a line at center. Shawsy will probably move up in that spot. Krug's move up so everybody get maybe a little more quality."
Bolland's injury could mark the return of Jamal Mayers to the lineup. If Mayers does indeed draw in, he'll be skating in his 900th career National Hockey League game.
"He's had a nice career, the ultimate pro," Quenneville said. "It's not easy when you've got to sit a guy out like that knowing the leadership he brings your team, the way he competes and the experience factor. He's been handling it OK, but I know inside he wants to be playing in the worst way and it's nice to see him get back in the lineup"
PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers will have to try to snap their three-game losing without one of their leading scorers, Wayne Simmonds, who will sit out Saturday's game against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes due to head and neck injuries.
Simmonds, who is tied with Matt Read for the team lead with five points in seven games, was elbowed in the face by Washington Capitals defenseman John Erskine late in the first period of Friday's game and did not return.
The Flyers gave no timetable for how long Simmonds would be out, but Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Simmonds would be re-evaluated Sunday.
"It's disappointing," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said of Simmonds' absence. "We certainly could use him in the lineup right now. His ability to score, his physical presence, the roles and situations and the minutes that he plays on our team, we'll miss him."
Kopitar actually recruited Ryan through his agent to bring him overseas.
"You get to know the guy a little better," Kopitar said. "You get to know his strengths and weaknesses at the same time … We all know he's a goal scorer. You got to play [well against] him just like any other guy in the League."
Kopitar said he hung out with Ryan during their off time and it's clear the two have respect for each other. Kopitar has feasted on the Ducks, with 37 points in 36 career games, while Ryan is known to have big games against the Kings. His spin-o-rama goal to complete a hat trick at Staples Center on Jan. 8, 2009 stands out.
Their friendship might get up close and personal now that Ryan is playing center and might take a few faceoffs against Kopitar.
"We'll be facing each other pretty often," Kopitar said.
This is the first meeting of the teams since Los Angeles won the Stanley Cup to match Anaheim's 2007 Cup triumph. Outside of Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau's open dislike of the Kings, both sides have downplayed the dynamic.
"They were the champs a few years ago," Kopitar said. "It will be like any other game. It will be physical. It will be intense. The crowd's going to be into it. We're looking for two points. It doesn't matter how they come."
Penner returns to the lineup: Dustin Penner will return to the lineup as the Kings look to generate scoring from the left wing.
Coach Darryl Sutter confimed to reporters Friday that Penner would return. Penner has not played since Jan. 22. He had no points with a minus-2 rating in the first two games, and conditioning seemed to be part of the issue.
The Kings have reverted to last season and are averaging 1.83 goals a game. Their power play is 2-for-33.
"Our left side has a grand total of two goals this year," Sutter said. "We need more balance right now."
Penner will likely slide into the left wing spot on the second line with Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, a line that was quite effective for the Kings in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Penner practically resurrected his career with 11 points in 20 postseason games.
Willie Mitchell has not skated for a week but club officials have said the defenseman has not had a setback from December knee surgery to remove cartilage. Mitchell said last month he wanted to be smart in his recovery and has been working out away from the ice.
I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
