Coyotes shake up lines in order to find offense

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Columbus Blue Jackets lost center Artem Anisimov early in the second period of Friday’s 2-1 loss at the Los Angeles Kings, but coach Todd Richards said the injury was just a bruise. Anisimov was walking without a limp and without a boot after the game and may be able to play Saturday.

Defenseman James Wisniewski remains away from the team to be with his wife for the birth of their daughter. Steve Mason is expected to be in the net tonight.

For the Phoenix Coyotes, Derek Morris is day-to-day with an upper-body injury he aggravated in the first period of Thursday’s 3-0 loss at the Nashville Predators. Coach Dave Tippett said center Matthew Lombardi, out since the second week of the season, could be ready to go as early as Monday against the Calgary Flames.

Flyers-Canadiens likely to be battle of backups

The Philadelphia Flyers did not skate Saturday morning after arriving late Friday night following a dispiriting 5-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

Philadelphia may have lost more than the game; defenseman Kimmo Timonen did not play in the third period with a lower-body injury and his status for Saturday night remains in question.

Though there’s been no confirmation from the Flyers, Brian Boucher should get the start in goal over Ilya Bryzgalov.

The Canadiens also will be playing their backup goaltender with starter Carey Price out because of a stomach flu. Peter Budaj will be seeking his first win of the season in his third start.

Islanders hope to build momentum against Devils

UNIONDALE, N.Y. – The New York Islanders ended a five-game losing streak Thursday night when they rallied for a 4-3 shootout victory against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

The Islanders (5-7-1) hope to build off that win Saturday evening, when they play host to the New Jersey Devils at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. New Jersey, which also rallied for a 5-3 win on home ice against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, sit atop the Eastern Conference with 21 points (9-2-3).

Johan Hedberg gets the start in goal for New Jersey. Hedberg, who turns 40 in May, has allowed two goals in three appearances this season. He is 2-0-1 with a 0.65 goals-against average and .973 save percentage. Hedberg stopped all 22 shots he faced in the Devils’ 3-0 win against the Islanders on Feb. 3 at the Coliseum.

GOALS: 6 | ASST: 8 | PTS: 14

Center Pavel Datsyuk is not in the Detroit Red Wings' line for Friday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks. According to published reports, he is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Prior to Friday, Datsyuk had registered goals in three straight games. It was the first time in more than a year that the Wings' Russian star had scored in three consecutive games. He has six goals and eight assists in 13 games.

Detroit recalled rookie forward Gustav Nyquist from their AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, to take Datsyuk's place. He'll play with center Valtteri Filppula and forward Justin Abdelkader on the second line.

Sean Couturier
Center - PHI
GOALS: 2 | ASST: 3 | PTS: 5
SOG: 20 | +/-: -3
NEWARK, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier, sidelined the past two games with a stomach virus, will be in the lineup on Friday against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

Couturier, who missed the opening two games of Philadelphia's current six-game road trip against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets, has two goals and five points in 12 games. He had 13 goals and 27 points in 77 games for the Flyers as a rookie last season.

Couturier will likely center Maxime Talbot and Zac Rinaldo on the fourth line to begin the game. In seven career games against New Jersey, Couturier has one goal, three points and a plus-5 rating.

Report: Landeskog back on the ice

Gabriel Landeskog
Left Wing - COL
GOALS: 1 | ASST: 0 | PTS: 1
SOG: 15 | +/-: 3
The Denver Post is reporting that Gabriel Landeskog, out since sustaining a concussion Jan. 26, skated for the first time Friday.

The report states that the 20-year-old Colorado Avalanche captain skated for an unspecified length of time at the team's practice facility, with club medical personnel watching. Neither Landeskog nor the team would comment on where Landeskog is in his recovery.

It's unclear when Landeskog will skate again.

Landeskog was hit hard by the San Jose Sharks' Brad Stuart during a Jan. 26 game. Landeskog was able to return after missing a few shifts, but has yet to play again. He has one goal and a plus-3 rating in four games.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper after Steven Stamkos broke a long scoring drought and Tampa Bay's struggling power play scored four times in Game 2 at Montreal
