Wild's Parise out with lower-body injury

PHILADELPHIA -- Zach Parise, the Minnesota Wild's second-leading goal-scorer, will not play against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night due to a lower-body injury.

With 15 goals, Parise trails only Jason Pominville for the team lead. Parise is tied with linemate Mikko Koivu for the team lead with 27 points.

Parise was held scoreless and had a minus-2 rating in the Wild's 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday night.

The 29-year-old left wing has played in all but one of the Wild's 38 games this season.

In Parise's absence, Matt Cooke moves up to left wing on the top line, alongside center Mikko Koivu and right wing Charlie Coyle.

Flames lose Glencross, Russell to injury

CALGARY -- Calgary Flames forward Curtis Glencross will miss the next eight weeks with a high ankle sprain and defenseman Kris Russell will be sidelined four-to-six weeks with a second-degree sprain of the MCL in his left knee.

Glencross hit Penguins rookie defenseman Olli Maatta into the end boards 37 seconds into the game and fell awkwardly with his left leg trapped under his body. He left the game and didn't return. The Flames placed Glencross on injured reserve Monday, a few hours before their game against the St. Louis Blues at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The 30-year-old had played six games since returning from a second-degree MCL sprain that kept him out of the lineup from Nov. 7-Dec. 10 -- a span of 15 games.

Russell was injured in the third period against the Penguins. Zach Sill fell on the 26-year-old defenseman after Flames rookie Sean Monahan gave the Pittsburgh forward a shove.

Russell, who is second in the NHL in blocked shots with 105, has averaged more than 23 minutes of ice time a game this season.

The Flames also announced forward Blair Jones will be out indefinitely with a meniscal tear and updated Dennis Wideman's status to week-to-week. Wideman has been sidelined since suffering broken hand in a 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 27.

Rangers' Vigneault defends decision to start Talbot

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault stood by his decision to start rookie goaltender Cam Talbot for the second time in 24 hours instead of No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist. Talbot stopped 24 shots Sunday in a 4-1 win against the Minnesota Wild and Vigneault decided to ride his hot hand.

"I felt Cam played a good game for us last night and just [made the decision to] go with him," Vigneault said before the Rangers' game Monday against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Madison Square Garden.

In 11 appearances, Talbot is 7-2-0 with a .936 save percentage and a 1.67 goals-against average. The Rangers have also averaged 2.78 goals per game in Talbot's nine starts, compared to 2.15 in Lundqivst's 27 starts.

Sharks' Hertl to undergo knee surgery

SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks rookie forward Tomas Hertl will undergo surgery on his right knee next week, the team announced Monday.

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson initially said that Hertl would miss at least a month. Now that surgery has been scheduled, the Sharks expect Hertl to be sidelined for more than a month. They'll have a more definitive timetable after Hertl undergoes surgery.

Hertl was injured Thursday night in the first period against the Los Angeles Kings during a knee-on-knee collision with Kings captain Dustin Brown at Staples Center.

In the wake of Hertl's injury, the Sharks unveiled new-look lines Saturday night against the Dallas Stars.

The Sharks beat the Stars 3-2 in a shootout, but coach Todd McLellan has made more changes for his team's game Monday night against the Colorado Avalanche at SAP Center.
