Grabner, de Haan out for Islanders vs. Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS – New York Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan (lower body) and forward Michael Grabner (upper body) will each miss the game Sunday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

De Haan and Grabner were hurt during a 4-3 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals on Saturday, prompting the recalls of defenseman Scott Mayfield and forward Johan Sundstrom from Bridgeport of the American Hockey League.

Grabner was playing in his first game since sustaining a concussion March 10 against the Vancouver Canucks and had to leave in the second period. The Islanders (31-35-11) are also without injured players including John Tavares, Eric Boulton and Kyle Okposo, but are 5-0-2 in the past seven games.

Blackhawks sticking with game plan against Blues

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks will host the rival St. Louis Blues on Sunday at United Center (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC,TSN2) and they're sticking with the same lineup that's won the past two games.

Only four games remain in the regular season for Chicago (44-19-15), which trails the Colorado Avalanche by three points for second place in the Central Division with only four games left.

Each of the past two games was played without top forwards Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, who are sidelined with injuries until the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The lineup designed to be simpler in structure, yet the Blackhawks haven't lacked too much offensively. They beat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 in a shootout Thursday at United Center on 26 shots and followed it up a day later with a 4-3 victory at the Columbus Blue Jackets on 38 shots.
