Panthers goalie coach relieved as backup

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Florida Panthers goalie coach Robb Tallas served as his team's backup goalie for the first 16:16 of Sunday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes before his place was taken by Jacob Markstrom.

Sabres' Vanek out vs. Rangers

NEW YORK -- The Buffalo Sabres will be without leading scorer Thomas Vanek for a second straight game, coach Ron Rolston announced Sunday prior to his team's game against the New York Rangers.

Vanek was absent from the Sabres' 4-3 shootout victory against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, and the team hoped he'd able to face the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Rolston said Vanek is close but just not ready.

"We're hoping [for Tuesday at the Carolina Hurricanes]," Rolston said. "For his best interest and the best interest of the team, we decided to hold him out [Sunday]. He won't be able to go, but we're very hopeful he'll be able to go on Tuesday."

Flames' Taylor to start in goal vs. Canucks

CALGARY -- Goalie Daniel Taylor will make his second start of the season when the Calgary Flames host the Vancouver Canucks at Scotiabank Saddledome on Sunday.

For Taylor, who took the loss in a 4-0 defeat against the Phoenix Coyotes on Feb. 18, it will be the second start of his NHL career.

"I feel that he had two great periods in Phoenix," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "Joey MacDonald played quite a few games for us. Kipper [Miikka Kiprusoff] is getting healthier and he's getting closer, so we felt that at the same time as giving a break to Joey MacDonald, to have another look at Danny Taylor would be a good idea."

Quote of the Day

Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.

— Stars forward Tyler Seguin on teammate Jamie Benn, the '14-15 Art Ross Trophy winner
