Conor Ryan: Bruins goaltender Jeremy Swayman practiced with the main group yesterday. Goaltender Keith Kinkaid remains with the team, so Swayman may need to get cleared for a few more things before returning to game action.
- Joe Haggerty: Bruins coach Jim Montgomery hasn’t ruled out Swayman for later this week as he’s ahead of schedule.
Defenseman Mattias Samuelsson doesn’t have a timeline yet but it will likely be within the next two weeks. He’ll wait until he skates and practices to see how he responds.
Matthew DeFranks: Stars coach Pete DeBoer said that forward Ty Dellandrea was having x-rays done last night: “Fingers crossed that he’s OK. Big block for him, for us from him.”
If I blocked this rocket from Stamkos, I’d probably retire and apply for disability. Ty Dellandrea was back in the game a few minutes later. pic.twitter.com/nd06Dplu3H

- Renaud Lavoie: Canadiens GM Kent Hughes said that Armia was injured on Saturday night and shouldn’t be out for that long.
- Eric Engels: Drouin will be out for four to six weeks. He’d been playing through the issue since November 5th.
- Charlie O’Connor: “Some of Allison’s injuries have purely been bad-luck injuries, & to an extent, this one is too. But his playing style is a part of why he gets banged up. The hit he injured himself on was his 7th of the game. It’s part of what makes him effective/fun. But there’s a downside.”
Puck Pedia: The Pittsburgh Penguins have activated forward Teddy Blueger from the LTIR. After sending Filip Hallander to the AHL, they are now out of LTIR and have $73,000 in projected salary cap space.
- Chris Krenn: Lightning coach Jon Cooper on Cernak and Foote: “Hopefully at least one of them can get in Thursday, but I would expect, by the weekend, they should both be back.”
Dan Murphy: Canucks forward Vasily Podkolzin missed last night’s game with a facial injury.
