Short Shifts

Notable lineup happenings around the NHL:

Jason Spezza hurt his leg vs. the Leafs last night and could miss up to 8 weeks time.  Time for Mike Fisher to really step it up, make sure you look at him in your league.  Sens Lines

Denis Grebeshkov will make his return tonight for the Oilers.  Jason Strudwick is the expected odd man out. Meanwhile, Nikolai Khabibulin will undergo a “spinal procedure” to help jumpstart his recovery.  Oilers Lines

Jarret Stoll left last night’s game with a groin injury.  Michal Handzus has moved up to the 2nd line center spot.  Kings Lines

Alex Tanguay and Jeff Halpern are healthy scratches tonight.  Nice to see Tanguay back in the doghouse but I’m not sure how dressing 8 defensemen against the Predators is a good move.  Just look at Lecavalier’s line.  Bolts Lines

Braydon Coburn will also return to the lineup tonight for the Flyers.  Flyers Lines
