MCL sprain to sideline Kiprusoff another two weeks

Calgary Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff has a slight Grade 2 MCL sprain and is expected to miss another two weeks, the team announced Tuesday.

Kiprusoff appeared to suffer the injury near the end of the second period of a Feb. 5 game against the Detroit Red Wings when he and Johan Franzen collided near the net.

The Flames claimed veteran goalie Joey MacDonald off waivers from the Red Wings and it appears will use him in tandem with rookie Leland Irving in Kiprusoff's absence.

Blues again recall goaltender Allen

The St. Louis Blues on Tuesday recalled goaltender Jake Allen from their American Hockey League team, the Peoria Rivermen.

The Blues again need an extra goalie after Jaroslav Halak sustained an injury in pregame warm-ups prior to Monday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Halak had missed the past three games due to a groin strain that landed him on injured reserve. Halak had been expected to start Monday's game.

Hurricanes look to finish road trip on a high

NEWARK, N.J. -- Carolina Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller opted to give his players the morning off Tuesday following a big road victory against the New York Islanders less than 24 hours earlier.

The Hurricanes, who now sit atop the Southeast Division and are third in the Eastern Conference, are 3-1-1 on their six-game road trip, which concludes Tuesday against the conference-leading New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

"I think our game against the Islanders might have been our best game of the whole road trip," Muller told reporters Monday after his team's 6-4 victory. "We just keep finding ways to win right now."

Fantasy Spin: Voynov outperforming Doughty early on

Slava Voynov
Defense - LAK
GOALS: 2 | ASST: 4 | PTS: 6
SOG: 22 | +/-: 7
After a brief Stanley Cup hangover, the Los Angeles Kings are back on their feet. Much of that improvement can be credited to an emerging young defenseman.

And to everyone's surprise, that player is not named Drew Doughty.

While Doughty, taken on average in the seventh round of Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey drafts, has stumbled out of the gate with no goals, four assists and a minus-10 rating through 11 games, Slava Voynov has emerged as the team's most productive player on the blue line.

Fayne skips skate, but will be in Devils' lineup

NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils will look to continue their winning ways Tuesday when they play host to Carolina Hurricanes at Prudential Center.

The Devils enter Tuesday's game riding a five-game winning streak and are first in Eastern Conference with 19 points, two ahead of the Northeast Division-leading Boston Bruins. The Bruins face the New York Rangers on Tuesday at TD Garden.

There doesn't appear to be any lineup changes in store for the Devils, although defenseman Mark Fayne was absent from the team's morning skate due to a death in his family. He was replaced by Peter Harrold during New Jersey's brisk 30-minute workout, but coach Peter DeBoer said he expects Fayne to be in the lineup alongside captain Bryce Salvador against the Southeast Division-leading Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Forward Dainius Zubrus will miss his fourth straight game with an upper-body injury. Zubrus was hurt during a 3-1 victory against the Rangers on Feb. 5.

Kovalev likely to return for Panthers

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Florida Panthers forward Alex Kovalev likely will be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Washington Capitals after being a healthy scratch the previous two games.

Kovalev, who turns 40 later this month, worked on a line with Tomas Kopecky and Marcel Goc during the morning skate.

Kovalev, who was signed after being invited to camp on a tryout basis, had been benched in favor of Jack Skille for Thursday's 3-2 shootout victory at the Philadelphia Flyers and Saturday's 5-0 loss at Washington.

Skille scored Florida's first goal in the victory against the Flyers. He'll stay in the lineup, with Jerred Smithson relegated to the press box.

Zolnierczyk, 25, has nine goals and eight assists in 46 games with the Adirondack Phantoms this season. He split last season between Adirondack and the Flyers, totaling three goals and three assists in 37 NHL games.
