Giordano, Stempniak absent as Flames host Capitals

CALGARY -- Lee Stempniak and Mark Giordano will not be in the lineup for the Calgary Flames as they return to Scotiabank Saddledome to host the Washington Capitals after coming off their five-game road trip with just one win.

Stempniak and Giordano, who rank second and third in Flames scoring respectively, will both miss the game on Saturday with lower-body injuries.

"Both of them, they're great leaders in here," said forward Sven Baertschi, who is expected to dress in Stempniak's place. "They're a huge help for our team. With both of them out, there has to be other guys that have to step up and I think we have enough offensive power in here to score goals and we have enough defensemen that can play very well.

"Everyone has to just chip in a little bit of leadership and then problem solved."

Stempniak played 16:57 and scored the Flames' lone goal in Calgary's 5-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday to wrap up Calgary's 1-4-0 road trip. But he will be unavailable for the Flames. He has recorded a point in all but one game for the Flames this season and has four goals and nine points on the year.

Hartnell returns for Flyers, Grabner back for Islanders

There will be a number of compelling returns Saturday night as the New York Islanders play host to the Philadelphia Flyers at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The most obvious will be defenseman Mark Streit, who served as the Islanders' captain for three seasons before signing this past summer with the Flyers. This will mark Streit's first game back on Long Island and he should figure prominently after being promoted this past week to the top unit on a power play that ranks 29th in the League with an 8.1 percent success rate.

"He was an integral part of our team. He was our captain. He moved on," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said after practice Saturday. "We wish him luck but we have a job to do tonight and that is focus on the Flyers."

The Flyers spent plenty of time practicing their power play Saturday and should benefit greatly from the return of forward Scott Hartnell, who missed four games with a reported rib injury. In order to make room for Hartnell in the lineup, the Flyers sent forward Tye McGinn down to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. Hartnell will skate on a line with Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek.

The Islanders will also have a welcome return to their lineup, as forward Michael Grabner will be back after serving his two-game suspension for a hit on Nathan Gerbe of the Carolina Hurricanes. With the speedy Austrian back in the lineup, Brock Nelson will be a healthy scratch for the Islanders.

Blackhawks continue roster, lineup shuffle against Wild

CHICAGO -- The wheel of change keeps spinning for the Chicago Blackhawks, with new faces continuing to get auditions and more familiar faces seeing looks in different roles.

This time, part of the lineup shakeup was caused by veteran center Michal Handzus, who did not participate in the Blackhawks' morning skate Saturday because of an upper-body injury. Marcus Kruger will fill in for Handzus at center on the second line Saturday night against the Minnesota Wild at United Center (8 p.m., FS-N, WGN), playing between star wingers Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane.

The move means Andrew Shaw will shift back to the middle of the third line, where Kruger's been playing of late, and rookie Jeremy Morin will get his first look at right wing on that unit this season. Morin was recalled from Rockford of the American Hockey League on Friday afternoon.

"[Handzus] could be out for a little bit, we'll see," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "[Morin] gives us a little bit of something there, some speed and quickness and can score goals ... and things happen when he's out there."

Hutton enjoying time as Predators starter

NASHVILLE -- When Carter Hutton signed with the Nashville Predators as an unrestricted free agent over the summer, all he wanted was a guaranteed chance to stay in the NHL.

Hutton spent last season with the Chicago Blackhawks, a team that solidified its goaltending this summer by signing Corey Crawford to a multi-year contract and bringing in veteran Nikolai Khabibulin to be the backup. Unfortunately for him, the Thunder Bay, Ontario native was the odd man out.

But Hutton, 27, never envisioned himself being the guy in Nashville these days. Not with Pekka Rinne firmly entrenched in the Predators' crease. But with Rinne's recent hip infection and consequential surgery that has sidelined Nashville's No. 1 goaltender for a minimum of four weeks, Hutton has been thrust into the starting role.

"You never want it to happen like this, especially to a guy like Pekka," said Hutton, who will make his third start and fourth appearance for Nashville on Saturday when the Predators host the St. Louis Blues. "He's been a really good friend to me since I've been here. Kind of took me under his wing. You don't wish that on anybody, but opportunities come in weird ways. That's why they brought me here. They thought they had faith in me and I believe in myself. When you get the chance, no matter how it comes, whether it was one start every 10 games or now playing a bunch, you've got to be ready for it and just take advantage of it."

Sharks' Wingels skates, hopes to face Canadiens

MONTREAL – San Jose Sharks forward Tommy Wingels took part in the morning skate and hopes to play against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Wingels left the Sharks' 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Thursday night in the first period after taking a hit in the corner from Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara.

Wingels, who has two goals and four assists in 10 games this season, took part in the skate Saturday with no restrictions and said afterwards he was "feeling good" but that no decision had been made in regards to his status.

"We'll make a decision here once he's reviewed by the doctors and the training staff," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "He skated today and he's feeling pretty good, so we're hoping he can play."

Talbot starts, Rangers' Lundqvist eyes Monday return

Two nights after making his first NHL start, goaltender Cam Talbot will return to the New York Rangers' net Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

Talbot stopped 25 of 27 shots Thursday night against the Philadelphia Flyers, but came up on the short end of a 2-1 loss that dropped New York's record to 2-6-0. With the Rangers playing the final contest in a nine-game road trip to start the 2013-14 season, Talbot is looking forward to getting back in the crease.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
