Predators' Michael McCarron: Deemed week-to-week

McCarron (upper body) is considered week-to-week. McCarron logged just 4:57 of ice time Tuesday versus the Wild, but there was no information about his injury after that contest. The 27-year-old's week-to-week timeline could make it questionable for him to return in the regular season. He's earned 14 points, with 70 PIM and 108 hits through 46 contests this season.

McCarron scored two goals -- one shorthanded -- in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Senators. McCarron's best efforts come in twos. This performance snapped a seven-game point drought that was preceded by a two-assist effort, and McCarron had a two-goal, two-assist performance four games before that one.
