  • St. Louis Blues: Vladimir Tarasenko will have surgery on his hand and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.
  • Mark Masters: Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said that Jonathan Bernier received treatment yesterday and a decision will be made soon if he requires an MRI. They still believe it isn’t serious. Paul Hendrick: Speculation is that it would only be a week.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: “I think there might be some more testing required on Bernier. They don’t seem overly concerned” … “In the moment, this is why you keep two goalies as in tune as you can”
