Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Callahan is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, the Lightning announced Wednesday.

Johnson and Paquette have upper-body injuries; the injury to Drouin was undisclosed.

Capitals visit Red Wings for Wednesday Night Rivalry

Alex Ovechkin will try again to become the NHL's all-time leading goal-scorer among Russian-born players when he and the Washington Capitals visit the Detroit Red Wings in the Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Ovechkin and the Capitals are making their second trip to Joe Louis Arena in eight days. He had 15 shots on goal in a 1-0 loss on Nov. 10. Despite coming up empty last week, Ovechkin has nine goals and 17 points in 15 career games against the Red Wings.

Ovechkin tied Sergei Fedorov's record when he scored his 483rd career goal in the second period against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov. 7; since then, he’s put the puck in the net twice only to have each goal negated after a coach’s challenge.

Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk is three games into his season and still looking for his first point. It'll come soon, perhaps as early as Wednesday, when the Red Wings play the Washington Capitals at Joe Louis Arena (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Datsyuk is still getting up to speed after missing the first 15 games recovering from ankle surgery.

More importantly, the Red Wings, with Datsyuk's help, finally showed signs of breaking out of a prolonged scoring slump in a 4-3 overtime win against the Ottawa Senators on Monday. They snapped a streak of six consecutive games in which they scored two or fewer goals.

Detroit had a season-high 37 shots on goal against the Senators. It was the first time the Red Wings had more than 30 shots in a game this season.

Islanders working to put down roots in Brooklyn

NEW YORK -- Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark's credo is to be happy but never satisfied. For all the work he's done to help lifelong New York Islanders fans get to their new arena, Yormark must add some Brooklyn flavor to a marketing recipe designed to create a foothold in the borough.

"I'm excited about the early returns, but we have more work to do," Yormark said. "I'm happy with the move, the team is off to a great start, the fans have been supporting the team, but we can do more. We can grow the base and we will."

The Islanders took a big step in their grassroots effort to grow their brand in Brooklyn on Tuesday when defenseman Nick Leddy became their first player to appear at a community event since they relocated from Long Island to begin the 2015-16 NHL season.
