Scott Darling will start in goal Saturday against the Kings, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Darling posted a solid performance last time out, setting aside 35 of the 37 shots he faced in the contest to lower his season GAA to 2.51 and save percentage to .912. With a back-to-back set Friday and Saturday, he'll get another chance in net in the second game against a Kings club scoring 2.45 goals per game this season to rank 20th in the league.
Tuukka Rask stopped only 24 of 27 shots Friday against the Rangers, but nonetheless came away with his third consecutive win.
Rask gave up a goal to put the Rangers ahead 3-2 in the middle of the third period, but his offense picked him up with two goals in a two-minute span late in the frame. Rask's been picking up some wins lately, but his rate stats remain on the ugly side thanks to inconsistent performances like this one.
Emmanuel Sanders , who is dealing with ankle and finger injuries, is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots, the Denver Post reports.
Given the probable designation and the fact that Sanders practiced fully Friday, the wideout looks like a go for Sunday's 8:30 ET contest, in the absence of any unexpected pre-game setbacks.
The Anaheim Ducks have reassigned Chris Mueller to AHL San Diego.
Mueller wasn't able to draw into the Ducks' lineup after his last call-up Tuesday. However, it's likely that he will pick up meaningful ice time with the Gulls -- he has four goals, 10 assists and 22 PIM with the minor-league affiliate in 2015-16.
Charcandrick West (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, the Kansas City Star reports.
The running back missed practice all week, but given that he "is making progress," per coach Andy Reid, the team hasn't ruled West out for Sunday's 1:00 ET tilt. At this point, West can probably be viewed as a game-time decision for the contest, with Spencer Ware presumably next in line for the Kansas City Chiefs ' Week 12 carries, should West be made inactive Sunday.
