Montreal Canadiens Jonathan Drouin missed last night's game with an injury
On the Boston Bruins …

Joe Haggerty: Forward David Krejci was on the ice yesterday morning, mostly by himself. He was handling the puck a bit, which is an encouraging sign.

On the Carolina Hurricanes …

Chip Alexander: Coach Bill Peters said that defenseman Brett Pesce isn’t ready just yet and still needs to get clearance.

On the Columbus Blue Jackets …

Brian Hedger: The Blue Jackets activate Cam Atkinson from the IR. He has missed four games with a lower-body injury.

On the Montreal Canadiens …

John Lu: Coach Claude Julien said that Carey Price‘s injury has nothing to do with the knee injury he had two years ago. They hope that he’ll be able to get back on the ice in a few days.

Pierre LeBrun: Forward Jonathan Drouin missed last night’s game with an upper-body injury.

On the Ottawa Senators …

Bruce Garrioch: GM Pierre Dorion said that they would re-evaluate Mark Borowiecki‘s situation when they return to Ottawa.

Bruce Garrioch: Forward Bobby Ryan could be ready to play in a couple of weeks.

On the Philadelphia Flyers …

Dave Isaac: Forward Nolan Patrick still isn’t practicing. He’s on the IR and listed as day-to-day.

Charlie O’Connor: Defenseman Radko Gudas was back on the ice yesterday, which is good for his potential return for Thursday.

On the Tampa Bay Lightning …

Erik Erlendsson: With Erik Condra on waivers, it looks likely he’s finally recovered from his back surgery. He is on waivers to get him back playing with Syracuse of the AHL.

On the Washington Capitals …

Tom Gulitti: Coach Barry Trotz said that all of their injured players are day-to-day, aside from Andre Burakovsky. Defenseman Matt Niskanen hasn’t practiced with the team yet. Their next practice is Thursday.

Isabelle Khurshudyan: Trotz said that defenseman Madison Bowey “tweaked something” in their previous game. He could have played, but they were being cautious and held him out.
