Kings defenseman Mitchell in 'holding pattern'

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell had another medical procedure on his injured knee Tuesday, and his return to the lineup remains unknown, general manager Dean Lombardi said.

"We're still in the same holding pattern," Lombardi said. "There's really no timetable."

Mitchell has not played this season.

Lombardi said defenseman Alec Martinez is on schedule in his 2-4-week return from an upper-body injury sustained in mid-February, and defenseman Matt Greene is ahead of schedule in his return from a projected three-month back injury suffered in January.

Rangers coping with plethora of injuries

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers right wing Rick Nash will miss his fourth consecutive game, as the team announced he is out Tuesday night against the Winnipeg Jets with an undisclosed injury.

He's not the only Rangers player who will sit Thursday with injury: defensemen Michael Del Zotto (lower body) and Ryan McDonagh (head), and forward Arron Asham (back) will be absent from the lineup.

Devils put Brodeur on IR, recall Kinkaid from Albany

New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur (back) has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 24, meaning he will not be eligible to play until at least Monday.

The Devils play at the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday and at the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

"It's just a precaution," New Jersey general manager Lou Lamoriello said, according to Rich Chere of the Newark Star Ledger. "It's a day-to-day situation. He's still feeling uncomfortable. It would be foolish to go X number of hours on a plane to Winnipeg."

Landeskog not seeking revenge in return to San Jose

SAN JOSE - It was exactly one month ago today that Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog took a crushing hit from San Jose defenseman Brad Stuart midway through the first period of a 4-0 loss to the Sharks at HP Pavilion.

And as luck would have it, tonight also marks the first time Landeskog, who missed the next 11 games with a concussion and didn't return to action until Friday against the Los Angeles Kings, will meet Stuart since that collision.

Landeskog said he's not out for revenge, but Stuart admitted he'll be ready for whatever the Avalanche send his way.

"I want to get out there and show them that I'm fine, that I can take a hit," Landeskog said after Colorado's morning skate. "Even though it was a hard hit, I don't have any grief against Brad Stuart or anything. He apologized after the hit and said he had no intention of hurting me. So no hard feelings there, but I'm excited to get out there and show them what I can do and show them that I can take that."

Just seconds after Stuart leveled Landeskog, Avalanche defenseman Ryan O'Byrne instigated a scrap with the Sharks defenseman, who was not suspended by the NHL for his hit.

"I think that score's been settled, as far as I'm concerned," Stuart said. "If they want to concern themselves with that, that's good for them. I'll be ready to play the game. We saw how that worked out for us last time."

Coyotes expect to cut out defensive letdowns

VANCOUVER -- The Phoenix Coyotes won't get any of their key injured players back for Tuesday night's road game against the Vancouver Canucks, but coach Dave Tippett expects his team to get back to its defense-first approach after a couple of letdowns.

It was missing when Phoenix uncharacteristically blew consecutive leads against the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames to start this three-game road trip. They lost in a shootout in Edmonton on Saturday after blowing a two-goal lead, and in regulation to Calgary the next night after giving up two goals in the final 1:23 to lose 5-4.

"Maybe a wake-up call for our group," captain Shane Doan said.

The rare defensive letdowns can be partly explained by the continued absence of veteran defenseman Derek Morris, who skated hard on Tuesday morning, but will miss a fifth game. Fellow defender David Schlemko, who signed a two-year, $2.38-million contract extension on Monday, has been out for three weeks with a shoulder injury.

"Derek Morris has probably been one of, if not our best player when he is in the lineup," Doan said. "Hopefully we get him back soon."

Battle of attrition as Sharks host Avalanche

SAN JOSE -- The San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche will both be shorthanded Tuesday night when they meet for the second time this season at HP Pavilion.

The Sharks placed defenseman Brent Burns (lower body) on injured reserve and recalled defenseman Matt Irwin from Worcester of the American Hockey League.

Sharks second-line forward Ryane Clowe will be out as he serves the second game of his two-game suspension for coming off the bench on a line change and immediately getting into an altercation with the Chicago Blackhawks' Andrew Shaw on Friday at the United Center.

Third-line forward Tommy Wingels, who went headfirst into the boards late in Saturday's game at the Dallas Stars, also will miss Tuesday's game, Sharks coach Todd McLellan said after the morning skate.

Colorado will be without top-line center Matt Duchene, who is sidelined by a groin injury. Duchene leads the Avalanche in assists (11) and points (17). With Duchene out, Paul Stastny is expected to skate on the top line between Jamie McGinn and PA Parenteau, while John Mitchell centers the second line with forwards Gabriel Landeskog and David Jones.
