Wingels, Kennedy back in Sharks' lineup

SAN JOSE -- Forwards Tommy Wingels and Tyler Kennedy will return to the lineup Thursday night for the San Jose Sharks against the Detroit Wings in a battle between injury-depleted teams at SAP Center.

Wingels missed five games with an upper-body injury and Kennedy was out four games with the flu. They will provide reinforcements to a team that is without five injured forwards. Logan Couture underwent surgery Wednesday on his right hand. Tomas Hertl (knee surgery), Raffi Torres (knee surgery), Adam Burish (back surgery) and Martin Havlat (lower body) are also sidelined.

"They look good and ready to go," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said of Kennedy and Wingels. "That's a nice thing to have them back, and now they have to produce."

Sabres to start Enroth, plug in Sulzer on defense

BUFFALO -- After having a game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday postponed until Feb. 25 because of a blizzard, the Buffalo Sabres will face the Florida Panthers on Thursday without defenseman Tyler Myers.

Myers was suspended three games for his check to the head of New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus. The Sabres were already shorthanded on defense without Henrik Tallinder (upper body). Alexander Sulzer will take Myers' spot in the lineup.

"We probably won't see a guy with over 28 minutes or 30 minutes," coach Ted Nolan said of his defense. "You'll probably see a whole lot of them with 15 or 20 instead."

Originally scheduled to play Tuesday, Jhonas Enroth will start in goal. Enroth stopped 44 shots to lead the Sabres to a 3-1 win against the Panthers on Oct. 25.

Coyotes get Ekman-Larsson back, lose Chipchura

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It's one step forward, one step back when it comes to the Phoenix Coyotes' injury situation.

The Coyotes will have defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson back in the lineup Thursday for an important game against the Minnesota Wild. Ekman-Larsson missed the past two games after a hit from behind by Derek MacKenzie of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Jan. 2. MacKenzie was suspended for three games for the hit, which led to an upper-body injury.

"We missed his smarts and puck movement and he will bring some energy. He's a top player for us," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said. "It was interesting in practice [Wednesday], it looked like the rest has done him some good. He has a lot of energy and you could tell before the injury that it was down a little bit. We rely on that a lot."

As Ekman-Larsson returns, Phoenix will be without center Kyle Chipchura against the Wild. Chipchura sustained a lower-body injury during a 6-0 win Tuesday against the Calgary Flames and will miss his first game this season. Tim Kennedy, a healthy scratch for the past two games, will replace Chipchura on the fourth line.

Blues look to extend win streak to seven vs. Flames

CALGARY -- The St. Louis Blues hope to increase their winning streak to seven games when they visit the Calgary Flames on Thursday.

But the Blues, who last lost a game 4-3 in a shootout to the Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome on Dec. 23, know not to take Calgary lightly.

"That was a wake-up call that if you let your foot off the gas, teams are going to take advantage of you," Blues captain David Backes said. "We learned a lesson that night. It taught us a full 60 minutes wins a hockey game.

"We've had pretty good efforts throughout that stretch of games where we haven't lost, but it's another 0-0 game at the start of this one against a team that works as hard as anyone, so we've got our work cut out for us."

Forsberg rejoins Predators, could play on homestand

NASHVILLE -- Filip Forsberg rejoined the Nashville Predators after a successful 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship but was not expected to play on Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks at Bridgestone Arena.

Forsberg said he arrived late Wednesday from Sweden and had difficulty with his flights, owing to the bad recent weather in the United States. Nashville coach Barry Trotz said the Predators would hold him out of the lineup Thursday partially for those reasons.

Forsberg was named the tournament’s most valuable player, best forward and a media all-star by posting four goals, 12 points and a plus-3 rating. Sweden, the host country, lost in the gold medal game to rival Finland 3-2 in overtime.

It sounds as if the Predators will try to get Forsberg into a game coming up -- they play four home games in six days starting Thursday -- before making a decision on whether he will remain with the team or be assigned to Milwaukee of the American Hockey League.
