Cammalleri to debut with Stempniak, Backlund

CALGARY -- Taking line rushes with Mikael Backlund and Lee Stempniak, newly acquired Michael Cammalleri has found a line, at least temporarily, with the Calgary Flames.

After a hectic 48 hours, Cammalleri wasn't made available to the media after the game-day skate. That didn't stop Stempniak from showing his excitement to play with the Flames newest forward.

"Obviously he's a great offensive player," Stempniak said. "He has a great shot and good offensive instincts. It should be a good fit. Hopefully we can get some goals and get going right off the bat. It should be fun."

Stempniak shouldn't necessarily get too comfortable with Cammalleri, according to coach Brent Sutter.

"I guess we'll get a feel," Sutter said. "I'll get a feel for it from a game and see how it goes and where it's at and whether it's the right center or right winger there. I just have to see it. I don't really have a feel for it right now."

Despite past success between Cammalleri and Calgary captain Jarome Iginla, Sutter wasn't tempted to put the two together immediately. The move would force Sutter to split up Iginla, Olli Jokinen and Curtis Glencross, one of the hottest trios in the league.

"Olli, Glennie and Jarome have been one of the best lines in hockey for the last six weeks," Sutter said. "We're excited to have Cammi come to our hockey team but because you acquire someone you don't shake up your team for one individual. Cammi understands it."

FLAMES
Curtis Glencross - Olli Jokinen - Jarome Iginla
Michael Cammalleri - Mikael Backlund - Lee Stempniak

Jackman returns as Blues work way to good health

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues hope that one by one, they start to get some missing pieces back into their lineup.

The first step to that goal came to fruition as defenseman Barret Jackman took part in the morning skate after missing his first game of the season with a hip injury suffered Tuesday at Montreal and will play tonight when the Blues (25-12-6) host the Minnesota Wild (22-16-6).

Jackman, who has 6 assists in 42 games this season, was injured following a hit by Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban in the second period of a 3-0 Blues win.

"I saw him coming, but I didn't realize he was going to step up as hard as he did," Jackman said of the Subban hit. "I was just trying to get a shot on net to maybe get a rebound out front. I just put myself in a bad position and fell awkwardly.

"I'm feeling good. The body's getting there, but it's the middle of the season so you've got your wear and tear. We'll see what happens."

------------

The St. Louis Blues' defensive corps was crowded on the ice Saturday morning, giving it a training camp flavor with nine guys out there.

Along with Jackman (hip) returni, Kent Huskins (ankle) and Kris Russell (groin) were also out taking part in the morning skate. Neither will play but continue to work on getting back into the lineup.

"We're not there yet, but it was nice to see Russ and Huskins join us," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Obviously Husky's a little bit away from playing, but nice to make him part of the team for a few minutes anyway. ... You're talking weeks (with Huskins), yeah. But it's nice that at least he gets to come out and skate. and be part of the team. He's excited by that."

And Russell? Maybe next week?

"Close. I don't know yet. We'll see," Hitchcock said. "We'll participate in a full practice tomorrow hopefully. We'll see, but he's close. That's a good sign there, too. Lots of guys on the rebound here, so we'll see where we get the next three or four days."

The Blues can only hope to play with a full deck soon.

"It'll be nice obviously ... the sooner the better," defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said. "It's good to see everyone kind of coming around. There's still a little time for some but at least we got them out there skating, which is obviously good.

"Once we get everyone back, it's going to be a pretty tough blue line to beat. Throw Andy (McDonald) and Steener (Alex Steen) up there in front, it's endless. The combinations you can get ... seems like it's going to be a problem for Hitch unfortunately, but it's a good one."

McDonald and Steen continue to skate and make progress. Steen is likely to get reinserted into the lineup sometime next week. McDonald is still wearing a red no-contact jersey and is weeks away.

------------
Blues captain David Backes spent last season as the Blues' lone All-Star representative. This season, it will be goalie Brian Elliott, who has to re-alter his plans of going to Wisconsin.

Backes, who could make a case to be going to Ottawa with 31 points and good numbers in other areas through 43 games, will instead be taking up a new hobby.

"I'm going to take my pilot's license test," Backes said. "I've passed the written test and now I've got the oral (test) and the actual flying test and then I'll have my license. The oral is a couple of hours and then the flying is a couple of hours, so I finally get a full day off and I'll hope to sneak that in."

Backes is glad for Elliott, who did not even know he'd make the Blues out of camp this season.

"'Ells' is very deserving and he'll have a great time in a place that he's played before," Backes said. "Would I love to be going with him, yeah, but there's only so many spots on there and there's a lot of great players in this League.

"It's an honor to go to that game, and if I can go to more in the future, that's great. If not, we get to rest up (like this year) for a great second half of the season into a playoff push."

Wild get back to basics in looking to break skid

ST. LOUIS -- The Minnesota Wild, who are 0-7-1 in their last eight road games (they've scored only seven goals in those games) and 2-9-3 in their last 14 games to fall out of the top spot in the Western Conference, are coming off a disheartening 5-2 loss at Chicago on Thursday night. Afterwards, coach Mike Yeo and the players voiced their frustration and anger over the recent play.

It's not something a locker room wants to go through, but as forward Kyle Brodziak said, a good kick in the pants is something that's needed at times.

"There's a lot of pride in the locker room and a lot of character," said Brodziak, who has 12 goals and 21 points in 44 games. "When you go through something like this, it's a very tough thing. I think if you stick with it and make sure your attitude doesn't change, eventually you get out of it because you only become stronger because of it. That's what we need to focus on is finding ways to get out of it. Once we do that, we'll be stronger for it.

"It's just a matter of preparing for every game. We can do a better job of preparing ourselves for the games and when we get to the game, we've just got to get back to basics and what we were doing when we had success. We were playing a pretty straightforward game going north with the puck and finding ways to get it behind their D and putting pressure on them and creating offensive zone time. I think that's a good key for us."

Yeo, in his first season as the Wild's coach, didn't reflect on the recent negatives on the road but stressed what has been accomplished in the past.

"The message for us is let's play our game," Yeo said. "We've gone into San Jose and beaten San Jose. We've gone into Detroit and beaten Detroit. It's time to go into another building and give ourselves a chance to win.

"We did those things because we played our game and we were true to the way we were supposed to play it, and that's what we need tonight. That's what we need now to the rest of the season. ... I'm very anxious to see how we come out here and play tonight."

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock and his players are very aware.

"I don't like it when teams come in and the coach is angry, the players are angry," said Hitchcock, whose team is 19-5-6 since he took over. "Usually you get their 'A' game. From an opponent's standpoint, it doesn't feel good. I think our players recognize that we're going to get their 'A' game tonight.

"It's hard when you're standing there as a coach or player to think we might not win another game for a month or we might not win a game for a week. Sometimes you get swallowed up by the day-to-day rather than the week-to-week or month-to-month. If you were to give both teams the chance to be where they're at right now based on what people said they were going to be, they'd be happy. Minny's in the playoff hunt, we're in the playoff hunt. We're both kind of where people thought maybe if we played well, we'd (be where we are). So you've got to look at that."

------------

After taking a risk in placing left wing Colton Gillies on waivers Friday, the Minnesota Wild now prepare for life without him, as Gillies was claimed by Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

The Wild was hoping to get Gillies, who had struggled with only 2 assists in 27 games, through waivers and send him to the Houston Aeros of the AHL, but that never became an option.

"I'm happy for him," Yeo said of Gillies. "He's a guy that has worked very hard for this opportunity and cares very much. I'm happy for him, but having said that for us, it is disappointing because he was still in our plans. We were hoping that he could go down there (to Houston) and get things going and would be back with us soon, but that said, it's a good opportunity for him and we're happy for him."

------------

With their recent struggles, Yeo has opted to sit veteran defenseman Greg Zanon and in his place will be Mike Lundin, who has 1 assist in 12 games this season.

"It's not an easy decision," Yeo said of benching Zanon, who has 3 points in 23 games. "These are veteran guys and a guy like him ... he pays a price when he plays. He's going to play hard for the team, but even talking to him, this is a decision that we made just for tonight.

"Even going in before the game, we thought that we wanted to get Lundy in. When we looked at last game and what we need for tonight, that's the decision we made."

Bourque thrilled at chance to play in Montreal

MONTREAL -- Rene Bourque says he's always wanted to play for the Montreal Canadiens, and with a name like his that would be understandable even though the Alberta native doesn't speak a word of French.

So when he walked into the Canadiens dressing room for the first time Saturday morning after his trade Thursday from the Calgary Flames, Bourque was a bit awestruck by the sheer volume of hockey history decorating the walls.

"It's awesome," Bourque said. "I still haven't really had the chance to look around and look at all the plaques and the names on the wall, and I'm sure they have Stanley Cup banners everywhere. It's exciting. I've always wanted to play here, I just didn't think it would be this soon."

Bourque's excitement will have to wait another day as he will watch the Canadiens face the red hot Ottawa Senators on Saturday night while serving the final game of his five-game ban for elbowing Washington's Nicklas Backstrom in the head.

Bourque was brought in by Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier because he brings a physical dimension that the departed Michael Cammalleri did not, but for a player who has been suspended twice in the past month it creates a delicate balance of trying to stay on the good side of the law while also doing what your new team expects of you.

Bourque, however, anticipates no problem in his ability to stick to his physical game while also playing within the rules.

"Obviously what I did was wrong and it was unfortunate, but it was more of a reaction than a body check. So I'm not really worried about being timid out there and staying away from physical contact, because if I'm not doing that you probably won't like my style," Bourque said. "I've never had a problem with a suspension until this past month. It's been seven years with no red flags, then two in one month, it changes your perception. I'm not worried about it, I know what I've done and I'll learn from it."

His new coach Randy Cunneyworth was a physical presence in his own playing days, and says that changed perception may not necessarily be a bad thing for Bourque.

"It makes guys a little bit leery when you know a guy has that reckless tendency," Cunneyworth said. "So maybe you shy away a bit and then you can win those battles."

A very common criticism of Bourque's game is that when he's on, he can be dominant, but those games are not nearly common enough. Bourque has heard it before and hopes this new opportunity with the third organization of his career will give him a chance to correct that inconsistent tendency.

"I'm working on it every game, I have to get better every game," Bourque said. "This is a fresh start for me here, it's a clean slate. I'm looking to shed that reputation, I guess."

How exactly Bourque will be used remains to be seen, but the addition of another big body makes it easier for Cunneyworth to implement his philosophy of how to construct forward lines.

"We're trying to design lines with elements of everything," he said.

That means having a playmaker, a shooter and a grinding, physical player on every line, but before Bourque arrived there weren't enough of those physical type players on the roster to properly spread the wealth and Cunneyworth said he liked the options Bourque provides him.

Bourque, meanwhile, simply likes the idea of pulling on that Canadiens uniform for the first time Sunday night.

"It's sinking in, I'm definitely getting more and more excited as they day goes on," Bourque said. "I can't wait to play tomorrow night in front of the fans here."

Concussion to sideline van Riemsdyk indefinitely

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- About an hour before his team hit the ice for its morning skate at Bridgestone Arena, Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren issued a statement that forward James van Riemsdyk would be out indefinitely with a concussion.

"James was hit in the head in each of our last two games," Holmgren said. "He reported yesterday not feeling like himself."

For the Flyers, whose lineup has been hit hard by concussions this season, the news that van Riemsdyk, 22, with 11 goals and 11 assists in 37 games, would be out was just the latest.

Van Riemsdyk had been playing left wing on a line centered by Brayden Schenn with Wayne Simmonds on the right. Zac Rinaldo will take his place in the lineup on Saturday.

"Any time you’re losing personnel, you don't want that," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "It's unfortunate that it happened. I actually liked the way he was moving on that line, I liked the line, I liked the way it was moving. So when guys come out, it's a setback for them, a setback for the team. Now Zac comes back in the lineup, brings his energy, probably move the lines around a little bit.

"But we've been through it before, we'll get through this as well."

Some of the Flyers' most high-profile players have fallen victim to concussions this season. Defenseman Chris Pronger will be out for the remainder of the season. The team's leader in points, Claude Giroux, missed four games with one. And rookie Brayden Schenn dealt with one as well.

Laviolette was asked if the Flyers had only had a healthy lineup for one game.

"I don’t even know if we've had that," he said. "Someone's been on the injured list or injured reserve the entire year. But again, that's part of the sport and part of hockey and it is what it is and you deal with it."

Several Flyers said they noticed that van Riemsdyk was hit in the head recently in a game against Ottawa by Bobby Butler on Jan. 8. Danny Briere observed that van Riemsdyk did not practice on Thursday but thought it might have been a groin injury or something else.

"I remember the one hit against Ottawa," Briere said. "Butler kind of clipped him at home. Besides that, I don't remember. We get hit in the head all of the time. But sometimes it starts with one big hit. You see it with, I think (Pittsburgh's Sidney) Crosby's the perfect example of all that. All the battles, you always get hit in the head somehow. And you see it even more after."

Rinaldo echoed that sentiment.

"I think it's just wear-and-tear type of thing, game in game out getting hit in the head," Rinaldo said. "Maybe having a headache and thinking nothing of it and keep battling and stuff like that and just repetitive hits to the head cause concussions."

Rinaldo, who ranks second in the League with 120 penalty minutes, will bring a different element to the lineup than van Riemsdyk. He said he would "keep positive, keep banging bodies, keep doing what I do best and hopefully it works out for the best."

Laviolette said Ilya Bryzgalov will start in goal for the first time in three games on Saturday.
 
FLYERS
Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jaromir Jagr
Jakub Voracek - Danny Briere - Maxime Talbot
Matt Read - Brayden Schenn - Wayne Simmonds

Projected lineups for Canadiens, Senators

Here are the expected lineups for tonight's game between the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens.

Of note, the Canadiens will be welcoming back Scott Gomez off a 21-game absence due to a groin injury. He will slide into the spot vacated by the departure of Michael Cammalleri to the Flames, playing on the left side of Tomas Plekanec with Michael Blunden on the right. However, coach Randy Cunneyworth said Erik Cole will rotate in a little bit on the right wing of that line.

Newly-acquired left wing Rene Bourque skated with his teammates for the first time this morning, but he will serve the final game of his five-game suspension for elbowing Washington's Nicklas Backstrom and won't be available to make his Canadiens debut until Sunday night at home against the New York Rangers.

Cunneyworth also confirmed he will dress seven defensemen and 11 forwards for a sixth straight game. Yannick Weber, who scored Montreal's lone goal in a 2-1 loss in Boston on Thursday, should dress instead of Chris Campoli.

For Ottawa coach Paul MacLean there will be no changes to the lineup, and why would he considering the impressive 3-0 win the team is coming off of against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Thursday?

CANADIENS
Max Pacioretty - David Desharnais - Erik Cole
Scott Gomez - Tomas Plekanec - Michael Blunden
Travis Moen - Lars Eller - Andrei Kostitsyn
Mathieu Darche - Petteri Nokelainen

Josh Gorges - P.K. Subban
Alexei Emelin - Raphael Diaz
Tomas Kaberle - Yannick Weber
Hal Gill

Preds' Wilson gets chance to face idol Jagr

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When Jaromir Jagr was winning scoring titles and Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early '90s, Nashville Predators forward Colin Wilson was an infant.

Nonetheless, Wilson, 22, whose father Carey was an NHL player, grew up with Jagr as his favorite player. On Saturday when the Predators host the Philadelphia Flyers, Wilson will get to play against his idol for the first time.

"I love the way he plays," Wilson said.

Wilson said his father was fairly particular about who he picked as his favorite player. Wilson said at one point one of his favorites was the New York Rangers' Mike Richter -- a one-time teammate of his father's -- but Carey Wilson told Colin that he needed to pick a player who was not a goaltender.

"I think he likes Jagr, the way he plays," Wilson said. "He's pretty critical of some of the players I liked growing up. … He was good with Jagr because he was a big, skilled player."

At 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, Wilson isn't quite Jagr's 6-3, 240, but he is a wide body. He said he has tried to emulate some parts of Jagr's game.

"He makes one move wide and he cuts in and there's not much you can do about that," Wilson said, "and I try to play that same game. I'm a bigger body, but nothing compared to him. I think I want to use my hands and skill like he does. Again, everything to an extent, but try to do things like that."

Trotz was asked about the "awe factor" for some of his young players who will compete against the likes of Jagr. Nashville has the League's youngest team.

"I don't know if there's any way to do it," he said. "You just say, 'Hey, this guy's a good player. You've got to respect what he can do but don't respect him too much because time and space will be death. Death to you and death to the team.'"

Wilson is well aware of the pitfalls of defending Jagr, especially with him playing on arguably the League's top line with Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell. Jagr has 12 goals and 20 assists in 36 games while Giroux is tied for second in the NHL with 49 points and Hartnell has 19 goals.

"You don't want to give him too much room," Wilson said. "At the same time, you can't go right into him because he's so big. Do a quick turn and as soon as he gets an edge on you, you can't do much about it. It'll help a bit defending, having studied his game, but I haven't watched him too much this year because we've been playing, so I don't know, maybe he's picked something up when he went back to the Russian leagues."

Canes will hold Skinner out against Bruins

RALEIGH -- Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner will not make his return to the lineup tonight against the Boston Bruins after missing 15 games with a concussion. Skinner went through the morning skate and did stickhandling drills with the assistant coaches afterwards, but the staff is being cautious before allowing his return.

"If there's any question mark or any uncertainty, we want to make sure he's 100 percent," Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said. "He had another workout today. We have back-to-back games here, so hopefully we will get him ready for tomorrow (at Washington)."

Here are tonight's projected lineups:

BRUINS

Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Nathan Horton
Tyler Seguin - Patrice Bergeron - Rich Peverley
Daniel Paille - Gregory Campbell - Shawn Thornton
Benoit Pouliot - Chris Kelly - Jordan Caron

Adam McQuaid - Joe Corvo
Zdeno Chara - Johnny Boychuk
Brad Ference - Dennis Seidenberg

Tuukka Rask took the morning skate and is the likely starting goaltender. Tim Thomas did not skate.

HURRICANES

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Tuomo Ruutu
Patrick Dwyer - Brandon Sutter - Andreas Nodl
Jerome Samson - Jussi Jokinen - Alexei Ponikarovsky
Anthony Stewart - Tim Brent - Brett Sutter

Tim Gleason - Bryan Allen
Jay Harrison - Justin Faulk
Derek Joslin - Jamie McBain

Cam Ward will start in goal for Carolina, with Justin Peters serving as the backup.
