Larsson day-to-day but could play

WGR 550: Buffalo Sabres goaltender Johan Larsson is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Schneider back from his conditioning stint

Chris Ryan of NJ.com: New Jersey Devils forward Stefan Noesen has been out since January 8th with a lower-body injury, but it’s dating back to an offseason issue.

He had been playing through it but they decided to shut him down for a couple weeks.

He’s back practicing and could be back in the lineup soon.

Goaltender Cory Schneider has finished his conditioning stint.

Joey Anderson is back practicing with the team and could be ready to return to the lineup soon, either in the NHL or AHL.

Mike Morreale: Schneider on if his abdominal strain was related to his surgery last year: “It’s a long, complicated answer. Let’s just say I feel really good physically right now & we’ve done a lot of work on/off the ice just to get me to a place where i feel really good about my game again.”

Point out with a lower-body injury

Joe Smith: Tampa Bay Lightning forward Braydon Point didn’t practice yesterday. He missed Saturday’s game with a lower-body injury. Coach Jon Cooper said he should be fine.

Eller close to returning

Chris Kuc: Washington Capitals forward Lars Eller said he’s “getting closer” to returning from his lower-body injury. They will decide today if he’s able to go.

Brian McNally: Capitals defenseman Christian Djoos is headed to the AHL on a conditioning stint. He’s been out since December 11th after having thigh surgery.
