Miller stopped 26 of 27 shots in a 2-1 win over the Avalanche on Saturday. He was given the second night of the back-to-back off, but should be back in the cage tonight vs. Dallas. He has started his Blues career with a 4-0-0 record, 1.50 GAA and .933 SV%. He went from a second-tier goalie to a must-start after being traded. For those of you who held onto him in Buffalo, plug him in and enjoy the return for your patience.
Luongo makes his third straight start with the Panthers.
Luongo gave up four goals on 41 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Bruins on Sunday. He made it look easy vs. the Sabres, but against stiffer competition you were reminded that he plays for the Florida Panthers. Bobby Lu had a lot of success (2-0-1 / 2.52 / .923) against the Coyotes when in Vancouver so he should make for an OK play tonight.
Ward is the only goalie not participating in optional morning skate; suggests he will start tonight.
Ward stopped eight of nine shots after replacing Anton Khudobin in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Devils.Ward is 6-10-5 with a 3.21 GAA and .891 SV% this season. Those numbers are way off of his career numbers (2.77 / .909) so the Hurricanes continue to wait for him to get his injury plagued season on-track. He will need his A-game tonight with Henrik Lundqvist standing in the other net.
Sabres head coach Ted Nolan said goalie Jhonas Enroth will likely start tonight.
Enroth allowed two goals on 31 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks on Sunday. Enroth has played very well since Ryan Miller was shipped to St. Louis. He has gone 2-2-0 with a 2.00 GAA and .947 SV%. He has a solid matchup against a Predators team who have scored just seven goals in their last five games.
The Capitals have recalled Patrick Wey from Hershey (AHL).
Wey is a Pittsburgh native so he could get onto the Capitals blueline tonight in front of his friends and family at CONSOL Energy Center. Wey has two assists in three games with the Capitals and one goal with five assists in 25 games with Hershey.
Lundqvist stopped all 30 shots that he faced in a 3-0 win over the Red Wings on Sunday. Sunday was his 300th career win and his 49th shutout, which is tied for the most in Rangers history. 'King Henrik' is 2-0-0 with a 1.50 GAA and .942 SV% against the Hurricanes this season.
Bobrovsky stopped all 28 shots in a 1-0 win over the Predators on Saturday. He was given Monday night off so he should be back between the pipes for a crucial clash with the Red Wings. Bob has gone 14-6-0 with a 2.03 GAA and .938 SV% at Nationwide Arena this year.
Anderson left Monday's contest in the third period and did not return.
Anderson skated off to the dressing room after Milan Michalek collided with him on a Nashville scoring chance. He stopped 26 of 29 shots before the injury.The nature of Anderson's injury is not known. Robin Lehner stopped 12 of 13 shots he faced in relief. The Predators won the game 4-3 in overtime. Expect an update on Anderson's status in the next 24 hours, if he misses time then Robin Lehner is worth an add for Anderson owners.
Parenteau injured his right knee on his first shift in the first period Monday against the Winnipeg Jets. Parenteau will likely miss the remainder of the regular season, but could return for the playoffs. Parenteau missed 10 games because of an MCL injury to his left knee earlier this season. He has 14 goals and 19 assists in 53 games. Head coach Patrick Roy said the Avalanche will call up forwards Paul Carey and Brad Malone from Lake Erie (AHL).
