Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen said Monday that he could make his season debut Saturday against the New York Rangers.

Timonen will travel with the Flyers this week to road games at the Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs but won't play. Instead he'll use the three days of practice to continue rounding into form.

"Tomorrow morning skate, Wednesday good practice and Thursday morning skate," Timonen said. "Those are the next steps -- more practices."

Timonen, who will turn 40 on March 18, has not played since being diagnosed with blood clots in his leg and lungs in August. But he began skating on his own Feb. 6 and has been practicing with the Flyers since Feb. 17.

Canucks goalie Miller needs MRI; Markstrom recalled

Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller is headed back to Vancouver to get an MRI after sustaining a lower-body injury Sunday in the second period of a 4-0 win against the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, general manager Jim Benning said Monday.

Goaltender Jacob Markstrom has been recalled from Utica of the American Hockey League, the Canucks announced via Twitter. The Canucks (34-22-3) continue a five-game road trip Tuesday against the Boston Bruins.

At 1:11 of the second period with Vancouver leading 1-0, Miller was run into by teammate Jannik Hansen, who crashed into the net and made contact with Miller's right leg. Miller went to the dressing room and did not return. Backup Eddie Lack relieved Miller and made 27 saves.

"Eddie can carry the load going forward if he has to," Benning said. "Jacob has been outstanding in Utica too. We have great depth at goaltender."

Capitals' top line has had revolving cast at right wing

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 9:20 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

PHILADELPHIA -- During the Washington Capitals pre-game line rushes against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, Andre Burakovsky skated with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, completing the Capitals first line.

Coach Barry Trotz ultimately scratched Burakovsky after deciding Washington was in need of a jump-start, inserting Jay Beagle into the starting lineup instead. Beagle's stint on the line was short-lived; Marcus Johansson replaced him after two shifts and a holding penalty, remaining there for the rest of Washington’s 3-2 loss.

"I think we weren't sharp at all," said Backstrom, who was held without a point after having seven in his previous four games. "It doesn't matter who plays with us, to be honest with you."

Flames GM Treliving approaches deadline with caution

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 9:08 AM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames have put first-year general manager Brad Treliving in a bit of a jam.

In just the second season of a full-on rebuild, the upstart Flames are pushing for a Stanley Cup Playoffs spot in the Western Conference, limiting the GM from declaring his team as full-on buyers or sellers at the NHL Trade Deadline on March 2.

"We're making up new terminology," Treliving told NHL.com. "We're in a stage here where the play of our team has put us in a position that you'd like to help. You'd like to be able to help for our stretch drive. Having said that, you also want to be careful and cautious of the type of … whether it be young players, young prospects, draft picks … that you expose in a situation like this. We're like everybody else. We're listening."

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The 2015 NHL Trade Deadline is next Monday, March 2, at 3 p.m. ET, so expect the rumor mill to churn in overdrive this week as general managers work the phones to try to make one last ditch effort to improve their teams heading down the stretch in the regular season.

Although there have already been two significant trades involving key players such as defensemen Cody Franson, Tyler Myers and Zach Bogosian as well as forwards Evander Kane, Mike Santorelli and Drew Stafford, there are still plenty of teams that need some help and players that could be on the move.

After Sochi, Price has become one of League's best

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

A year ago this week, the 2014 Sochi Olympics entered the knockout round. To celebrate, NHL.com looks at three players who used one of hockey's biggest stages to grab the spotlight and parlay their celebrity into the 2014-15 NHL season.

Today, we look at Canada goalie Carey Price, who led his team to its second straight gold medal.

When Carey Price left for the 2014 Sochi Olympics it was unclear whether he or the incumbent, Roberto Luongo of the Florida Panthers, would be the starting goaltender for Canada.

It was the one position that most of the hockey world thought was a potential weakness for the powerhouse team from Canada.

When Price returned to the Montreal Canadiens a few weeks later he did so with a gold medal hanging around his neck, having been named the top goaltender of the Olympic tournament after a 3-0 shutout against Sweden in the gold-medal game, which was played one year ago Monday.

Price stopped 103 of 106 shots in five starts in Sochi and 70 of 71 shots in three elimination games, making the pretournament chatter about Canada’s goaltending seem rather silly.

"I was pretty confident in my abilities going into the tournament," Price said. "I knew the group of players I was playing behind, I knew it was going to be a really good opportunity to win. That was the mentality that I had, and all I had to do was just do my part. Fortunately for me things went well, the team played really well in front of me, and everything was done exactly as planned."

Nathan MacKinnon (3-0-3) recorded the first hat trick of his NHL career, which included his second game-winning goal of the season, to power the Colorado Avalanche to a 5-4 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

* According to the Elias Sports Bureau, at 19 years, 174 days old, MacKinnon became the third-youngest player in franchise history to record a hat trick; as a member of the Quebec Nordiques, Joe Sakic recorded hat tricks on Oct. 22, 1988 at 19 years, 107 days old in a 7-3 loss to the New York Islanders and on Nov. 11, 1988 at 19 years, 140 days old in a 5-3 win against the Montreal Canadiens.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
