Enroth to start again for Sabres

BUFFALO Jhonas Enroth will start in goal for the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday against the New York Rangers as Ryan Miller deals with a sinus infection. Miller will serve as the backup.

It will be Enroth’s fourth start this season. He most recently got the nod on Thursday against the New Jersey Devils but left the game after cramping up late in the third period.

Miller had started 14 straight games before Thursday night.

Enroth is 0-2-0 this season with a 3.94 goals-against average and an .871 save percentage. He made 27 saves in New Jersey but had to be helped off the ice after allowing the game-tying goal with 1:06 left in regulation.

“We’d certainly like him to build off of that last game because I know that was one of the best games that I’ve seen him play since I’ve been in the organization,” Sabres interim coach Ron Rolston said of Enroth following the team’s optional morning skate.

Lindback, Markstrom take long-time friendship to NHL

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Anders Lindback and Jacob Markstrom grew up as buddies in the small town of Gavle, Sweden, and Tuesday the two goalies will face each other in the NHL for the first time when the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Florida Panthers at BB&T Center.

Markstrom was the first goalie off the ice when the Panthers had their morning skate, and Lightning coach Guy Boucher confirmed Lindback would be his goalie after he sat out a 4-3 loss against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Dubinsky back for Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets go for their sixth straight win Tuesday when they host the Vancouver Canucks at Nationwide Arena.

Sergei Bobrovsky, named Monday as the NHL's First Star of the Week, will be back in net. In four games last week, he was 4-0-0 with a 0.77 goals-against average, .972 save percentage and one shutout.

Returning to the lineup is center Brandon Dubinsky, who has been out for a month with a knee injury. In 15 games, Dubinsky -- who last played Feb. 16 -- has a goal and seven assists.

What will the Flames do with Iginla?

As the April 3 NHL Trade Deadline approaches, one of the more interesting names to watch is Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla. Iginla is due to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, and while he's become the face of the franchise in his 18 years with the Flames, the Calgary Sun reported Saturday that there has been no talk of a new deal between the Flames and Iginla.

Iginla's agent, Don Meehan, told the Sun that Iginla is "not currently in negotiations" with the Flames. The newspaper also reported that Iginla has not instructed Meehan on whether to resume talks on a new contract with the team or to request a trade.

The decision facing the Flames is a tough one. Entering games Tuesday, the Flames are 15th in the Western Conference, but just six points out of eighth place.

Iginla is tied for the team lead with 12 assists and 19 points, and is third with seven goals, showing his offensive skills remain strong at age 35. If the Flames have any hopes of returning to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2008, Iginla will be a major part of getting him there.

He also is someone the Flames could use as a trade chip to reinvigorate their prospect pipeline. Any team with hopes for a Stanley Cup surely would do its best to put together a package of prospects and draft picks that intrigues the Flames.

The third option, allowing Iginla to go into the offseason without a new contract and potentially sign elsewhere with no return for the Flames, is highly undesirable.

So with three weeks until the trade deadline, eyes will continue to be focused on Iginla and how the Flames opt to handle his future.

Drouin back for Halifax; MacKinnon close

The Halifax Mooseheads will have one of their top 2013 draft-eligible forwards returning to the lineup on Monday when they play host to Acadie-Bathurst Titan at the Halifax Metro Centre (6 p.m. ET).

Halifax general manager Cam Russell informed NHL.com that Jonathan Drouin, who has missed the past three games with a lower-body injury sustained on March 2, will make his anticipated return. Nathan MacKinnon, who has missed the past 13 games after sustaining a lower-body injury on Feb. 8, remains out. According to Russell, "[MacKinnon] is close."

Drouin, No. 3 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm list of the top draft-eligible North American skaters, still leads the team with 98 points on 39 goals and 59 assists in 45 games. Despite playing in 20 fewer games, the 5-foot-10.75, 185-pound Drouin is three points from the overall scoring lead in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Josh Currie and Ben Duffy of the P.E.I. Rocket have 101 points apiece.

It's possible MacKinnon, Central Scouting's No. 2-ranked skater on the midterm report, could return Wednesday on the road against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. MacKinnon has 28 goals, 69 points and a plus-37 rating in 41 games this season for the Mooseheads (54-6-4).

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
