  • Filppula dished out two assists in Friday's 3-1 win over the Penguins in Game 1. Filppula picked up both his apples in the second period -- one of which was the primary helper on Ondrej Palat's game-winning power-play goal 2:33 into the frame. The 32-year-old Finn has seen his role increased in the playoffs, skating to an average of 20:31 of ice time (as opposed to 18:15 in the regular season), while scoring at clip of 0.55 points per game (six in 11) after recording a mark of 0.41 (31 in 76) in the regular season. With star forward Steven Stamkos (blood clot) still out for an undetermined amount of time, it's production like this from guys like Filppula that will be required if the Bolts hope to win seven more games and hoist Lord Stanley's mug come mid-June.

  • Filial dished out two helpers -- including one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Islanders. That's now points in three straight games for the 32-year-old. With four points in the first three games versus the Islanders, Filppula has become a key piece of what the Lightning are doing on offense. He's been a sneaky play for fantasy owners this round after being kept off the scoresheet in the first-round series with the Red Wings.

  • Filppula found the back of the net in Wednesday's Game 1 loss to the Islanders. Filppula was held pointless in the first-round series against the Wings, but jumped off to a fast start in the semifinals after collecting his own rebound for the score. A third-line center, Filppula should be considered an X-factor in the series. He's proven to be streaky, but has the two-way acumen to make plays on both ends of the ice. In order to win the series, the Bolts will need secondary scorers like Filppula to be consistent. Until that happens, though, fantasy owners are advised to look in another direction.

  • Filppula scored a goal and collected an assist in Thursday's win over the Devils. With the pair of points, Filppula reached the 30-point mark in what was his 75th game of the season. The veteran center has largely disappointed in his 10th NHL season, falling significantly short of his point totals of 48, 58 and 66 in his last three full NHL seasons.

  • Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Will return Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Filppula (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Monday against the Maple Leafs, Michelle Gingras of Fox Sports Sun reports. Sidelined since March 15 with the upper-body issue, the Lightning will welcome the 32-year-old back to Monday's lineup as the team continues to jostle for playoff position. While his 28 points, 90 shots on goal through 69 games don't really stand out, Filppula's 18:22 of average ice time keep him fantasy-relevant in some leagues. He skated on alongside Alex Killorn and Steven Stamkos on the top line again Monday, so there's no reason to believe the Finnish forward won't resume the same role in his return to the lineup.
