Stars looking forward to seeing Bruins' Eriksson

BOSTON -- There's understandable hype around Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley returning to face the Boston Bruins as members of the Dallas Stars on Thursday.

Seguin and Peverley were integral parts of the Bruins' teams the past three seasons, including the Stanley Cup championship season of 2010-11.

But the game also will be the first opportunity for the Stars to face their former teammate Loui Eriksson, who was the centerpiece of the package Dallas sent to Boston for Seguin and Peverley. Eriksson will be in the lineup after missing five games with a concussion.

"For me, four years with him was great," Stars captain Jamie Benn said of Eriksson. "We know Loui's such a great player. He brought a lot to this team and it was tough to see him go."

Ovechkin to return to Capitals' lineup

ARLINGTON, Va. -- After missing the Washington Capitals' weekend back-to-back games with an upper-body injury, right wing Alex Ovechkin will return to the lineup Tuesday against the New York Islanders.

"I feel fresh and I feel, before I get hurt, really good," Ovechkin said. "Of course you don't want to miss two games but it happens and I'm back and I'm pretty happy."

Ovechkin, who will skate on Washington's top line with center Nicklas Backstrom and left wing Martin Erat, has not played since a 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Oct. 28. In the first period of that game Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler tripped Ovechkin as he broke toward the goal, which sent him crashing into Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo. Ovechkin seemed to favor his shoulder as he skated away from the collision.

Ovechkin to team with Erat on Capitals' top line

ARLINGTON, Va. -- For his past 40 games dating to last season (including the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs), Washington Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin only has known Marcus Johansson as his left wing.

Between March 17 and Oct. 28, Ovechkin and Johansson flanked Nicklas Backstrom on Washington's top line, combining for 59 points at even-strength. Yet when Ovechkin returns to the lineup Tuesday against the New York Islanders after missing two games with an upper-body injury, he will see Martin Erat on his opposite wing.

"We'll see [Tuesday]," Ovechkin said when asked about the differences between Erat and Johansson. "He's a skilled guy, experienced guy and I'm sure he’s going to help our line to create more opportunities to score goals. He's a great player."

Gillies' late goal leads Canada West at World Junior A

Alex Gillies, a "C"-rated prospect on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list for 2014 NHL Draft prospects from the Canadian junior leagues, scored the game-winning goal early in the third period Monday to send Canada West to a 4-3 victory against Switzerland on the opening day of preliminary-round action in the 2013 World Junior A Challenge in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

Dylan Hollman, who was named player of the game for Canada West, scored a pair of power-play goals in the first period to give his team a 3-2 lead. Switzerland squared the game 3-3 in the second on a goal by left wing Matteo Romanenghi.

Gillies then scored the game-winner 1:07 into the third. The Michigan Tech University commit plays for the Salmon Arm SilverBacks in the British Columbia Hockey League. Nicholas Jones, also considered a "C"-rated prospect for the 2014 draft, scored in the victory. Jones, who stars for the Sherwood Park Crusaders in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, is committed to Ohio State University in 2014-15.
