Stalberg collected his second goal of the season in an overtime win over the Panthers on Saturday. It's the first point in four contests for the 29-year-old Swede. The third line winger also registered two penalty minutes and three shots on goal. Stalberg is a plus-8 with six points through 18 games played this season.
Stalberg (head) logged an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over Washington. The point has got to be a good feeling for Stalberg, after missing two games with the head injury.

Stalberg (head) is expected to return for Tuesday's contest against the Capitals, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

He'll replace Emerson Etem, who filled in on the fourth line in his absence.
Stalberg (head) won't play Friday against the Maple Leafs, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. Stalberg was able to practice Thursday, and has been cleared medically, but head coach Alain Vigneault reportedly wants the 29-year-old forward to take part in at least one more practice before returning to game action. Stalberg could potentially suit up for Tuesday's tilt against the Capitals. Until he's able to return, Emerson Etem will continue to skate alongside Dominic Moore and Jarret Stoll on New York's fourth line.
