Senators reunite Spezza, Ryan, promote Zibanejad

CHICAGO -- Since blowing out the Detroit Red Wings 6-1 last week at Joe Louis Arena, the Ottawa Senators have only scored three combined goals in a pair of losses at home to the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks.

Looking for a spark offensively, Senators coach Paul MacLean is set to reunite forward Bobby Ryan and captain Jason Spezza on the top line while putting 20-year old Mika Zibanejad in Ryan's former spot at right wing on the second unit.

Spezza (seven goals, four assists) and Ryan (six goals, three assists) are Ottawa's top-two scorers, while Zibanejad has a goal and an assist in three games since being recalled from Binghamton of the American Hockey League.

"We played together earlier in the year and I was banged up a little bit," Spezza said. "So we'll get another opportunity to play together and hopefully we'll make the most of it. If we're going to play together, we have to help guide the team offensively. When we're split up, it's a little bit more by committee. We have to try to be good together offensively and also play solid against the other teams' top lines."

Banged-up Coyotes now deal with Hanzal's absence

GLENDALE Ariz. -- For a number of reasons, Martin Hanzal's two-game suspension could not have come at a worse time for the Phoenix Coyotes as they host the Los Angeles Kings at Arena on Tuesday.

Hanzal, a repeat offender under the NHL's disciplinary system, will miss the game against the Kings and Thursday against the Nashville Predators after charging Edmonton Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry in a 5-4 comeback victory on Saturday.

The Coyotes are banged up and Hanzal is one of four regulars who will miss the game. Forwards Lauri Korpikoski and Jeff Halpern are injured, as well as defenseman Rostislav Klesla. The two-game break might actually be beneficial to Hanzal, who has been banged up for more than a week himself, but the Coyotes will certainly miss him.

Oilers' Gagner cleared, to play against Maple Leafs

EDMONTON -- Sam Gagner is back in the lineup for the Edmonton Oilers, while Joffrey Lupul will be a game-time decision for the Toronto Maple Leafs as the two sides meet at Rexall Place on Tuesday.

Gagner has yet to play a game this season after breaking his jaw during the preseason, courtesy of the stick of Vancouver Canucks wing Zack Kassian. Gagner needed surgery to repair the damage done after Kassian's stick caught the Oilers center in the face.

Kassian received a five-game suspension for the Sept. 21 incident, while Gagner missed the first 13 games of the regular season.

Blues get positive injury news on Stewart, Paajarvi

ST. LOUIS -- When St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock spoke in regards to two injuries that occurred during the team's 6-1 win Saturday against the Nashville Predators, he was concerned about them being long-term.

Stars' Chiasson eager to play in hometown

MONTREAL -- Dallas Stars rookie Alex Chiasson has had a near historic number of highlights over the course of his short NHL career, but the one to come Tuesday at Bell Centre may top them all.

The Montreal-area native who has begun his NHL career with 11 goals in 18 games will play his first game in his hometown, with more than 50 family and friends expected to attend the game against the Montreal Canadiens.

"When we start the season there are always a couple of dates we circle, and tonight's going to be a memorable night for me," Chiasson said. "When the plane landed last night I was a little nervous. I didn't sleep much last night."

Perreault back for Ducks, on line with Selanne

PHILADELPHIA -- Mathieu Perreault sat out the Anaheim Ducks' game Sunday against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a sore left wrist, but after going through a full practice for the second straight day Tuesday, he'll be back in the lineup Tuesday night when the Ducks face the Philadelphia Flyers.

Getting the chance to play on a line with Teemu Selanne certainly speeds up the healing process.

Perreault will center the Ducks' second line with Emerson Etem on the left side and Selanne, the likely Hall of Famer playing his final NHL season, on the right side.

"It's been great," Perreaut said. "Hall-of-Fame guy. He's been unreal to play with. So far for me it's been really good playing with him."

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
