Kari Lehtonen's back has flared up again. He was okay after practice Tuesday, but did not practice with the team on Wednesday. Lehtonen is suffering from a stiff back - at least that's the official word.

Ondrej Pavelec will only be recalled if Lehtonen is not better closer to Friday's game versus the Carolina Hurricanes.

UPDATE: Pavelec has been recalled. Lehtonen will most likely be kept out of this weekends games.
