St. Louis Blues
Blues forward T.J. Oshie left Tuesday night’s game vs. San Jose with an undisclosed injury. Oshie left the game early in the second period and never returned.
Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said afterwards that Oshie has an upper-body injury. “We’ll give you a better report sometime around noon (Wednesday),” Hitchcock said.
Nick Bonino is on IR due to a lower-body injury according to Ducks. There was speculation that Bonino was out with the flu, but he apparently suffered an injury during practice on Monday.
Kelly missed Tuesday’s game because of an injured left knee. Because of swelling around the knee, the Bruins have not been able to determine the severity of the injury.
Kelly, who was with the team in Pittsburgh, will be reevaluated upon the team’s return to Boston.
Zucker was helped off the ice during Tueday’s contest against the Ducks following a head shot delivered by Corey Perry. Update to come later today
Ducks say Viktor Fasth (upper body) is day to day. Most likely a sickness, will have update later today.
Jamie Benn doubtful for tomorrow. Benn’s injured wrist kept him out of last night’s contest and it will likely keep him out tomorrow. Monitor his status tomorrow for a more accurate report on his availability.
Toronto Maple Leafs
Lupul took part in the complete session of practice today. Felt good. Says it will be up to doctors to clear him and then he would return.
Lupul has only appeared in three games this season but is nearing a return from a broken forearm. The Maple Leafs are in the middle of a tight playoff race and it has all been done without Lupul. Getting him back will be like trading for a top-6 forward but not giving up anything. He should have an immediate impact on the Leafs lineup when he returns.
Detroit Red Wings
Valtteri is playing tonight for Wings. Filppula who has missed the Red Wings last seven games with the shoulder injury will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Flames. He will play on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Damien Brunner.
Detroit Red Wings
Howard will not start tonight because of the flu, so Jonas Gustavsson will get the nod for the Red Wings.
