Kiprusoff out, Flames sign Taylor

Goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, the Calgary Flames announced Wednesday.

Kiprusoff left Calgary's game Tuesday night after making 19 saves on 20 shots in a 4-1 victory against the Detroit Red Wings. Backup goaltender Leland Irving replaced Kiprusoff for the third period and stopped all six shots he faced.

The Flames signed Abbotsford Heat goaltender Danny Taylor to a one-year, two-way contract and he will fill Kiprusoff's spot. The 26-year-old is 13-9-1 and second in the American Hockey League in goals-against average (1.77) and save percentage (.930). The leader in both categories is Abbotsford's Barry Brust, who is 9-6-2 with a 1.69 GAA and .940 save percentage.

Rangers' Girardi to sit vs. Devils

NEWARK -- New York Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi will miss his first game of the season Tuesday night. The team said he's "banged up" and lists him as day-to-day.

Stu Bickel, who had been playing forward, will move back and take Girardi's place on the blue line when the Rangers take on the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

In addition, Rangers rookie forward Chris Kreider will make his return to the lineup after missing the last five games, including four in a row while dealing with bone chips in his ankle.

Kreider will start the game on a line with the recently acquired Darroll Powe and rookie call-up J.T. Miller, who is making his NHL debut.

Girardi, who played in all 82 games last season and 120 in a row, has missed only two games in the last five-plus seasons. He did not practice Monday, but the team said he was simply taking a "maintenance day." Girardi was on the ice for the morning skate Tuesday, but when the Rangers came out for warmups prior to the game he was not with them.

Girardi has two assists and is a minus-3 in eight games this season.

Ryan McDonagh, Girardi's normal defense partner, was paired with Anton Stralman in warmups. Marc Staal and Michael Del Zotto remained together with Bickel and Matt Gilroy making up the third pair.

Henrik Lundqvist is starting in net for the Rangers opposite the Devils' Martin Brodeur.

Shanahan explains non-discipline decisions on NHL Live

Brendan Shanahan, NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety, made an appearance Tuesday on Cisco NHL Live and provided analysis of a few plays from recent games that the League's Department of Player Safety determined did not warrant any supplemental discipline.

Three players have been suspended so far in the 2012-13 season -- Philadelphia's Brayden Schenn for a charging infraction on New Jersey's Anton Volchenkov, Colin McDonald of the New York Islanders for a boarding penalty on Pittsburgh's Ben Lovejoy and Washington's John Erskine for a hit to the head of Philadelphia's Wayne Simmonds.

The incidents Shanahan highlighted during his appearance on the show included hits by San Jose's Brad Stuart on Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog, Toronto's Mike Brown on Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta and Los Angeles' Jarrett Stoll on Anaheim's Cam Fowler.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.

— Sabres forward Jack Eichel on transitioning from college hockey to the NHL
