Flames' Taylor to start in goal vs. Canucks

CALGARY -- Goalie Daniel Taylor will make his second start of the season when the Calgary Flames host the Vancouver Canucks at Scotiabank Saddledome on Sunday.

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."

No Hall for Oilers against Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall will not play Sunday against the Minnesota Wild, according to Oilers coach Ralph Krueger.

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."

Canadiens' Ryder making return to Boston

BOSTON -- Sunday's game between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden is more than just a showdown between the teams tied for the most points in the Eastern Conference standings.

It's also the return of forward Michael Ryder for the first time since he won the 2011 Stanley Cup with the Bruins then left for the Dallas Stars as a free agent. Ryder, acquired by the Canadiens in a trade last week, didn't play in Boston last season.

Crawford, Howard to start in net for Hawks, Red Wings

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings will be without forward Valtteri Filppula when they face the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, NHLN-CA).

Filppula is listed as day-to-day with a shoulder injury.

In goal for the Red Wings will be Jimmy Howard, while the Blackhawks will start Corey Crawford. It will be Crawford's first game since leaving a game against the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 28 after the first period due to an upper-body injury that appeared to make him wobbly leaving the ice.

The Blackhawks will be without second-line center Dave Bolland for a fifth straight game due to an upper-body injury, with Marcus Kruger likely manning the middle again on the second line.

Bolland skated Feb. 28 for the first time since getting injured Feb. 22 against the San Jose Sharks. As for defenseman Steve Montador, who hasn't played yet because of an upper-body injury believed to be concussion-related, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Sunday morning the veteran blueliner is "getting closer" to returning.

Here is how the Blackhawks and Red Wings might line up Sunday:

Learning what's wrong is helping Helm heal

DETROIT -- It wasn't the answer that Detroit Red Wings center Darren Helm was hoping to hear, but at least the medical specialist he saw recently in New York for his injured back had an answer.

Helm, a speedy third-line center, has only played one game for Detroit this season and has missed 17 straight with a frustrating back injury that, until recently, was caused by an unknown reason. After consulting with the specialist last Monday, Helm was given somewhat of a diagnosis.

"He seemed to think he found a small tear in one of the discs," Helm said. "It's kind of a six-to-eight week injury, he said, from the time it happened. I don't know if I'm close to where he thinks I should be healing or not, but I do feel better. That's the silver lining, I guess."

Playing in Helm's usual third-line center role is rookie Joakim Andersson, who will be there again Sunday when the Red Wings host the red-hot Chicago Blackhawks (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, NHLN-CA).
