Schultz (lower-body) could return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Schultz was on the ice for Monday's practice and has not been ruled out for Tuesday's game in Philadelphia. This would be a huge boost to the Penguins blueline, who have seen John Marino and Marcus Pettersson step-up in his absence. Schultz had two goals and six assists (eight points) in 27 games before getting hurt in mid-December.

Simon (lower-body) is expected to play on Tuesday.

Simon was forced to leave Sunday's game vs. the Bruins but was able to return to the ice for Monday's practice and is expected to play tomorrow. Simon has been tearing it up since Sidney Crosby returned to the lineup, scoring two goals with two assists (four points) in four games.

Kahun is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Kahun was forced to leave Sunday's game in the second period and did not return. He was not on the ice for Monday's morning skate and head coach Mike Sullivan announced that he has been diagnosed with a concussion. Luckily the Penguins bye week is around the corner, so Kahun could only end up missing about three games.

Bobrovsky will start Monday in Minnesota.

Bobrovsky stopped 27 of 28 shots in the Panthers win in Detroit on Saturday. It was a strong return to the crease for Bobrovsky, who has now won his last two starts while stopping 57 of 60 shots (.950 SV%). Tonight he faces a Wild team that has lost four of their last six but are coming off of a 7-0 win over the Stars on Saturday.

Georgiev will start Tuesday vs. the Islanders.

This isn't surprising with the Islanders in town. Georgiev started both games vs. the Isles last week, going 2-0 while stopping 70 of the 74 shots (.946 SV%) that he faced. He is now 4-1-0 with a 1.40 GAA, .955 SV% and one shutout in his career against the Islanders and makes for a solid option on a quiet Tuesday in the NHL.

Koivu (illness) is not expected to play on Monday.

Koivu was a late-scratch on Saturday and it looks like he'll miss his second straight game on Monday. Koivu took part in the Wild's morning skate but is not expected to play vs. the Panthers. After a 7-0 win, head coach Bruce Boudreau may not want to change things.

Stalock will start Monday vs. the Panthers.

Stalock stopped all 27 shots that he faced in the Wild's 7-0 shutout win over the Stars on Saturday night. He has won two in a row while stopping 45 of the 47 shots ( .957 SV%) that he's faced and will make his third straight start tonight vs. the Panthers. Stalock has been excellent at the Xcel Energy Center, going 7-1-1 with a 2.10 GAA and .924 SV% in 11 games (9 starts).

Filppula (lower-body) is doubtful to play Monday in Colorado.

Filppula left Saturday's game vs. the Panthers after being hit by Vincent Trocheck late in the first period and missed Sunday's practice. Head coach Jeff Blashill did not have much of an update on Filppula's status but labelled him as questionable for Monday's afternoon game. With Filppula likely out, look for Brendan Perlini to draw into the lineup.

Donskoi (concussion) will miss Monday's afternoon game vs. the Red Wings.

Donskoi ditched the non-contact sweater and was a full participant in Sunday's practice. Still, Donskoi will miss his fifth straight game and will take the 11 days between games to get back to 100 percent. Look for him to travel on their five-game road trip and return to the lineup on February 1st in Philadelphia.
