Just a couple of tidbits that may be of interest to fans and poolies:
- Marty Turco (sore neck) is not accompanying the Stars to Minnesota for their game against the Wild tonight.
- Ducks forward Samuel Pahlsson (abdominal inflamation) may return to the team's lineup either tonight in New York but more likely for tomorrow's game in New Jersey.
- Bruins forward Peter Schaeffer (shin contusion) is out for tomorrow night's game at Buffalo.
- Glen Murray (hip flexor) is expected to be a game-time decision for tomorrow night's game against the Sabres.
- Mark Parrish (concussion) is still not ready to return to the Wild lineup.
- Josh Harding (illness) most likely will not back up Niklas Backstrom tonight against Dallas.
- Dany Heatley (separated shoulder) is returning to the Senators lineup tonight when they take on the Panthers.
