Senators' Turris has moved on from time with Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Kyle Turris has been back to Arizona once since being traded to the Ottawa Senators, but he doesn't expect the reception to be much different than the last time he returned to town when the Senators play the finale of a six-game season-opening road trip Tuesday against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Taken by the Coyotes with the third pick of the 2007 NHL Draft, Turris played three NHL games in 2007-08 after his freshman season at college finished, and then had 20 points in 63 games in 2008-09. He spent two of the next three seasons in the minors, and after a difficult contract negotiation and complaints by Turris about the restrictive coaching style of Dave Tippett, his ice time and playing partners, Coyotes general manager Don Maloney opted to trade Turris on Dec. 17, 2011.

Panthers' Bjugstad returns, Thomas close to returning

The Florida Panthers confirmed that towering center Nick Bjugstad will make his 2013-14 season debut against the Nashville Predators in Music City on Tuesday. Bjugstad suffered a concussion during training camp that forced him to miss the season's first six games. The Panthers went 2-4-0 in those games.

During the morning skate in Nashville, the 6-foot-6 Bjugstad skated on a line with Krys Barch and Tomas Kopecky. In 11 games last season, the 21-year-old Minnesota native collected one goal, no assists and a minus-8 rating.

Avalanche look to tighten defense against Stars

DENVER -- While the Colorado Avalanche have gotten off to a 5-0 start for the first time since they were the Quebec Nordiques in 1994-95, coach Patrick Roy said not all is perfect with his team heading into Tuesday night's game against the Dallas Stars at Pepsi Center.

The Avalanche were outshot 19-7 in the second period of a 5-1 win Saturday in Washington when Semyon Varlamov was in goal. They were outshot 15-6 in the second period of their Oct. 10 game in Boston, a 2-0 win behind the goaltending of Jean-Sebastien Giguere.

"The last two games, I think we gave up too much in the second period both times," Roy said Tuesday. "It was at the end of our trip when we had the lead. Things like that happen. We'd like to cut down a bit on shots. The chances, we gave a bit too many, though not as bad as it appears.

Reimer in for Maple Leafs, van Riemsdyk questionable

TORONTO -- The Toronto Maple Leafs will have at least one lineup change and could be looking at another one Tuesday as they host the Minnesota Wild.

James van Riemsdyk left the morning skate early and may not be able to play.

"James van Riemsdyk is a question mark for tonight," coach Randy Carlyle said. "So we'll see how he responds to some treatment here now and later on today. We'll make a decision based upon where he's at for tonight."

If van Riemsdyk can't play, Troy Bodie or Trevor Smith could be inserted into the lineup.

James Reimer returns in goal, making his first start since Oct. 5, when he was pulled from a start against the Ottawa Senators after allowing four goals on 21 shots.

Howard remains out for Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard, who bruised his glove hand in a 5-2 win Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers, spent extra time working with goaltending coach Jim Bedard before revealing that he was doubtful to play Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

In his stead, backup Jonas Gustavsson will get the start in consecutive days, something he hasn't done since March 10-11, 2012, when he was a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Gustavsson looked sharp making his first start of the season Monday against the Boston Bruins. He made 28 saves, including all three he faced during a third-period 5-on-3 Boston power play, in a 3-2 Detroit win. Tuesday will be Gustavsson's first home start of the season.

Blue Jackets' Calvert expected to miss six weeks

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert will miss approximately six weeks after having surgery Tuesday to repair an abdominal injury, the team announced.

Calvert had the procedure performed by Dr. William Myers as the Vincera Institue in Philadelphia.

The 23-year-old left wing, who had been placed on injured reserve Monday, had no points and a plus-1 rating in three games; considered a speedy, tenacious forechecker, he had nine goals and seven assists in 42 games last season.

Fantasy Spin: Category coverage puts Hanzal on map

Injuries are piling up around the League, with Rick Nash (head), Vincent Lecavalier (lower body) and Scott Hartnell (upper body) all on injured reserve in Yahoo Fantasy leagues and James Neal (upper body) set to join them on that list.

So where can fantasy owners find someone playing top-line minutes to fill a void left by one of the aforementioned forwards?

Look no further than Martin Hanzal of the Phoenix Coyotes. His multi-category performance early on this season puts him in very small company.

Canadiens hope to finish road trip on high note

WINNIPEG -- The Montreal Canadiens have an opportunity to head back home happy when they meet the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre on Tuesday.

The Canadiens (3-2-0) took two of three games last week in Western Canada, and a win against the Jets would wrap the trip nicely for coach Michel Therrien and his team. After playing Winnipeg, Montreal will play six of its next seven games at Bell Centre.

"It has been a long road trip," Canadiens center Lars Eller said, "and we want to round it out in a good way before we get back home. I think everybody is very excited to get back home, but we want to finish off in a good way, and that's going to make [returning home] that much better."

Quote of the Day

I look forward to the process, the battle, the pain, the fun, the journey.  It's going to be a long one but it's going to be a lot of fun. If you think there is no pain coming, there is pain coming.

— Mike Babcock, introduced as coach of the Toronto on Thursday, had a warning for fans
