Getzlaf out for Ducks against Kings

ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks will be without captain Ryan Getzlaf for at least one more game.

Bruce Boudreau ruled out Getzlaf on Sunday when the coach spoke to a small group of reporters 90 minutes before the Ducks played the Los Angeles Kings at Honda Center.

“He’s day-to-day. He’s not playing tonight,” Boudreau said. “… At this point in time we want to make sure that he’s completely healthy before he plays.”

Hawks go for clinch; Preds continue to battle injuries

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks could become the first team in the NHL to clinch a Stanley Cup Playoff spot if they pick up at least a point against the Nashville Predators on Sunday night (7 p.m. ET) at United Center.

Meanwhile, it's getting close to do-or-die time for the Predators, who continue to lose forwards to injuries and close games down the stretch run of the season. Nashville dropped a 1-0 game to Chicago on Saturday afternoon at Bridgestone Arena -- continuing a vexing trend of not scoring enough goals -- and now the Predators face the Blackhawks again a little more than 24 hours later without Gabriel Bourque and veteran forwards Paul Gaustad and Mike Fisher.

All three will miss Sunday's game with undisclosed upper-body injuries, and Colin Wilson remains on the injured reserve list with an upper-body injury. Bourque and Gaustad didn't play in the game Saturday, but Fisher did. Now he's out, and forward Austin Watson was recalled Sunday morning from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League to take his place.

Flu sidelines Blues forward McDonald

DETROIT -- St. Louis Blues forward Andy McDonald is out of the lineup for the game Sunday against the Detroit Red Wings because of the flu.

As a result of McDonald's absence, the Blues are playing with seven defensemen, but they're using Kris Russell as a left wing on the fourth line.

McDonald has four goals and 11 assists for 15 points in 26 games this season.

Youthful flavor working for Sabres, interim coach

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres will look to make it three wins in a row while the New Jersey Devils hope to snap a three-game losing streak when the teams meet at First Niagara Center on Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

Thomas Vanek, Buffalo's leading scorer, will miss his sixth game in a row with an upper-body injury. He did not participate in the team's morning skate Sunday, but interim coach Ron Rolston said it was not due to a setback; Vanek was scheduled to have the day off. Rolston said Vanek would practice again Monday.

Anderson to make first start back for Senators

SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Ottawa Senators have lost three straight in regulation for the first time this season, but they’re hoping the return of goaltender Craig Anderson can make a difference Sunday against the Florida Panthers.

Anderson, who leads the NHL in goals-against average (1.49) and save percentage (.952), will be in net for the first time since Feb. 21 when he sustained an ankle injury against the New York Rangers.

"It can certainly help the psyche of your team, for sure," Senators coach Paul MacLean said. "We can use that boost right now."

Scouts remember EJ McGuire

TORONTO -- It's a bittersweet day here at the NHL office on the third day of meetings for NHL Central Scouting.

The group is into the fourth round of projections on its master list of the top draft eligible North American skaters, but are doing so with heavy hearts.

That's because two years ago to the day, a dedicated friend, father and the former director of NHL Central Scouting, EJ McGuire, died from an incurable, rare form of cancer, Leiomyoscarcoma.

McGuire waged a brave five-month battle with the disease before passing in the early morning of April 7, 2011. Every scout in the board room no doubt will reminisce about their friend at some point, or recall a moment in time when he made a profound impact on their lives in some fashion.

Kingston could be team to watch next season

TORONTO -- Is there any question the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League had the team to watch if you were a fan of blue-chip prospects eligible for the 2013 NHL Draft?
 
In addition to possessing forwards Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin, No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, on NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of the top draft-eligible North American skaters, Halifax goalie Zachary Fucale was rated No. 1 at his position.
 
Now, inquiring minds would like to know if the 2014 draft will offer a similar scenario, with one team cornering the market on top-tier draft prospects. NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards said he believes there might just be such a team.
 
"In 2013-14, Kingston in the Ontario Hockey League could be this year's Halifax," Edwards told NHL.com.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
