Analysis: Alex Tanguay was hit in the face with a puck in Thursday's game against the Capitals and was forced to miss Colorado's game on Saturday. It was originally feared that he would be out indefinitely, but after further evaluation it was determined that the injury was not long-term.

News: Colby Robak will be in the lineup Monday against the Wild, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports reports. Analysis: Colby Robak has made just six appearances for Florida this season, and so it seems that he'll likely have a minor role in Monday's game against the Wild as he comes off the bench with the fourth line.
News: David Krejci (undisclosed) will not play Monday against the Penguins, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports. Analysis: David Krejci is dealing with an undisclosed injury and should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Luckily for Krejci, the Bruins don't take the ice until Friday against the Jets.
News: Chris Kelly (undisclosed) will not play Monday against the Penguins, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports. Analysis: Chris Kelly also missed the morning skate so Monday night's absence was expected. His next opportunity to get on the ice will be against the Jets on Friday, although coach Claude Julien says that he doesn't know when Kelly will be able to make a comeback.
News: De Haan is dealing with an undisclosed illness and will not play Monday against the Flyers. Analysis: The 23-year-old has three assists on the season but seems to be stymied by an illness that leaves him day-to-day. His next opportunity to get on the ice will be against the Capitals on Wednesday.
News: Thomas Hickey is dealing with an undisclosed illness and will not play Monday against the Flyers. Analysis: Thomas Hickey has registered one goal and five assists on the season but won't have an opportunity to add onto those totals Monday.

News: Tuukka Rask is confirmed as the starting goalie for Monday's game against the Penguins. Analysis: As expected, Tuukka Rask will make another start after allowing a pair of goals in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Canadiens. In his previous start Tuesday agains the Blues, he stopped all 33 shot attempts.
News: Tomas Fleischmann will serve as a healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Wild, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: This should come as no surprise considering how Tomas Fleischmann has only put up two points in 17 games this season. He has been moved up and down the lineup to try and spark some offence but nothing has seemed to work this season. Last season was his worst output since becoming a Panther in 2011, only scoring 28 points (8G,20A) in 80 games. Fleischmann is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but his $4.5 million cap hit won't make things easy for Florida in terms of the team's salary cap if they keep scratching him. Look for him to get back into the lineup sooner rather than later.
News: Marc-Andre Fleury will start Monday's game against the Bruins. Analysis: The veteran gave way to Thomas Greiss in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders, but he'll be back in the crease Monday to face the Bruins for the first time this season. In his last start Friday against the Islanders - the teams played a home-in-home - Marc-Andre Fleury allowed four goals on 35 shots.
News: Trochek will serve as a healthy scratch for Monday's contest against Minnesota, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: Florida has finally got some of their regular bodies back so they decided to scratch Trochek Monday. He had scored six points (1G,5A) in 10 games this season, so it was not for a lack of production. He is only 21 years of age and on a 2-way contract which means he could likely see himself sent down to the minors because of the amount of one way contracts Florida has healthy. Monitor his status throughout the week.
