Ailing Penguins … Gagne nursing new injury … Ducks-Flyers make small trade

  • Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Sidney Crosby left practice early yesterday with an injury, same went for Chris Kunitz. Evgeni Malkin didn’t practice. “They are all dealing with some aches, pains and soreness,” Penguins coach Dan Byslma said, but they all should take the morning skate today. Though no one would say what was bothering Crosby, he been bothered by hip and groin soreness throughout the season.
  • Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times: The Tampa Bay Lightning are still unsure when Simon Gagne will return to the lineup. He’s been out 14 games with a neck strain, but is being bothered now by “forehead or sinus pressure.” The Lightning put defenseman Matt Smaby on IR, and Randy Jones is playing with an injured foot.
  • Eric Stephens of OC Register: The Anaheim Ducks put Josh Green on waivers yesterday and recalled Dan Sexton and Brandon McMillan. If Green clears waivers he’ll be sent to Syracuse of AHL.
  • Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News: The Philadelphia Flyers traded Pat Maroon and David Laliberte to the Anaheim Ducks for Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson. Syvret had been with the Flyers organization before he signed in Anaheim. Pat Maroon was sent home from the Flyers AHL team a couple weeks ago for “behavioral issues.”

Flyers-Giroux close to extension … Unrest in Calgary … Devils and Sharks looking for a Dman … Doan out week-to-week … NHIC Hotstove video

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Philadelphia Flyers are close to signing winger Claude Giroux to a contract extension. There is unrest in Calgary, Jarome Iginla trade rumors, coach and management issues, assistant GM Jay Feaster could take over (IMO, the Sutter’s need to go before any player decisions are made). The New Jersey Devils would like to add a defenseman. Ed Jovanovski is a UFA this year, he could be dealt or resigned, but they may not be able to do a deal with the Coyotes without the consent of potential owners Matthew Hulsizer or the True North Group, no formal discussion have taken place. The San Jose Sharks are looking for a defenseman to fill the departed Rob Blake’s minutes, they’ll likely wait till it’s closer to the trade deadline. Islanders goalie Dwayne Roloson could get some interest at the trade deadline. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli will have plenty to consider at the GM meetings starting on Tuesday, as teams will be looking for deals to help them fix some of their cap issues, a chance Michael Ryder could be dealt.
  • Howard Berger via twitter: Toronto Maple Leafs forward Colby Armstrong has a walking cast on his right leg, he was originally out with a finger injury.
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan are off to a good start with the NY Rangers, and both will be looking for nice raises. Dubinsky is in the final year of his 2 year deal making $1.85 million per season. Callahan is making $2.3 million in the last year of his deal.
  • Curtis Zupke of the OC Register: Injured Ducks, Dan Sexton, Matt Beleskey and Joffrey Lupul all practiced yesterday. It was Sexton’s first practice after breaking his nose.
  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators forward Milan Michalek skated yesterday for the first time in a week after experiencing tendinitis in his knee. Michalek could return on Tuesday against the Thrashers.
  • Hockey Night in Canada Hotstove: Ron MacLean, Eric Francis, Mike Milbury & Pierre LeBrun

Sens still trying to make a deal, tight against the cap … Boychuk out a month … Kovalchuk plays, scores only goal … plus more

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators GM Bryan Murray hasn’t been able to find a trade partner yet in his attempt to shake up his team. They are tight against the salary cap, which could be marking it harder to pull off a deal. Capgeek is showing that they are only $75,000 under the cap. The Sens are trying to move Brian Lee  and his $875,000 salary since the summer, but he hasn’t played well. Teams are willing to take Nick Foligno or Erik Karlsson, but Murray isn’t interested in moving them. Filip Kuba should be practicing with the team early this week.
  • Rich Thompson of the Boston Herald: Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk will be out for about a month after a ‘slight’ fracture in his left forearm. It won’t require surgery. Boychuk took a slash from Brandon Dubinsky.
  • Mark Everson of the NY Post: The New Jersey Devils rank last in scoring and in points, and have benched their $100 million man. Everson thinks they need to stop juggling their lines and let them find a way to work together. Kovalchuk scored the teams only goal last night after his one game banishment to the press box. Kovalchuk added this about his healthy scratch,”The coach decided to give me a little rest and that’s about it. That’s his decision. It’s going to stay between me and him. I’m just a player so I’m going to show up so I can play.”
  • Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Other reactions about Kovalchuk’s first game back.“I’m hungry night when I’m playing because that’s my job and we’re all professionals,” Kovalchuk said. “We all have to realize when we step on the ice, you have to do your best.”“I thought Kovy was fine,” Maclean said. “He played hard, skated hard. He got a goal there and some other chances.” “He was playing with some energy,” Langenbrunner said. “He’s as frustrated as anybody with the way things have gone and he wants to do his part to get us going back in the right direction. He did that scoring a goal again. He has a knack for putting himself in those positions and it was a great pass by (Dainius Zubrus). We’re going to need more of that, just battle and get pucks to the net. That was all created by cycling pucks off the net.”
  • Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: RW Aaron Asham will likely be healthy enough to go on Wednesday. LW Eric Tangardi doesn’t have to clear waivers so he could be sent down. Zbynek Michalek had a full practice yesterday. Dman Andrew Hutchinson could also be sent down, as the Pens have 8 defenseman practicing.
  • Eric Stephens of the OC Register: Anaheim Ducks winger Dan Sexton has a broken nose after taking a shot in the face from Ruslan Salei on Saturday night. It’s not known yet how long Sexton will be out. He could return to Anaheim today for further tests.
  • Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: The Dallas Stars are still unsure if Jamie Benn is better served as a winger or a centerman. The last 2 games he’s played on the wing with Steve Ott and Ton Wandell. Last year was the first year he’s ever played center. Marc Crawford said it’s a game-by-game decision on where he plays.

Video: Hits by Shane Doan on Fowler and Sexton will likely be looked by the League

9:19 am: Nick Kypreos via twitter: League is reviewing Shane Doan’s late hit on Dan Sexton.

8:43 am: I’m sure Shane Doan’s hits from last night will be reviewed by the league today, and I’m sure a fine or suspension will occur, likely for the Dan Sexton hit.

In the 2nd period, Doan hits Cam Fowler, who on his way down, and may have been in a vulnerable position.

In the 3rd period, Doan laid a hit on Dan Sexton, which looks to be a little high, a little late, and possible from the blind-side.
