    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Registers first career playoff goal

    Dumoulin found the back of the net Sunday for the first playoff goal of his career. Unfortunately for the defender, the Penguins lost Game 5 in overtime, 4-3. Dumoulin chased down a Bryan Rust shot and buried the puck into the twine on a rebound with seven-tenths of a second remaining in the first period. With Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel combining for just one point between them, it was nice to see Dumoulin pick up the slack. He now has seven points through 16 games in the playoffs, making a sneaky fantasy play from the back end.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Will play Monday

    Dumoulin (undisclosed) will play in Monday's Game 2 against Tampa Bay. Dumoulin will pair with Kris Letang on Monday despite suffering an undisclosed injury in Game 1. The 24-year-old has three assists over the past four games, but he's still looking for his first goal of the season.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Game-time decision Monday

    Dumoulin (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Monday's Game 2 matchup with Tampa Bay, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Coach Mike Sullivan is once again playing his roster decisions close to the vest, but all indications are that Dumoulin will be in the lineup after being a full participant in Sunday's practice as well as the game-day skate Monday. The defenseman struggled to get on the scoresheet for much of the season, but recorded a trio of helpers in the closing three games of the Capitals series. If he is good to go, the 24-year-old could be worth a look as a low price blue line option.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Expected to play in Game 2

    Dumoulin (undisclosed) is expected to be good to go for Game 2 against the Lightning, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Dumoulin exited Game 1 after going headfirst into the glass in the third period but it sounds as though the blueliner has avoided a major issue. The team should confirm his status on game day but the statement and the fact that he participated in practice Sunday seems to suggest he will be ready.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Leaves Games 1 early Friday

    Dumoulin left in the third period of Friday's game against the Lightning after Ondrej Palat drove him headfirst into the glass, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. The defenseman did not return to the game, and it's not clear if he will miss further action in the series. Palat was slapped with a boarding minor for the play that knocked Dumoulin out of the game. This was an ugly game in terms of bad hits, as Dumoulin's teammate and fellow defenseman Kris Letang was also driven into the boards on an illegal hit, but unlike Dumoulin, he was able to return. If Dumoulin misses time, it could spell trouble for the Pens as he's one of the team's top shutdown option on the back end.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Dishes out two helpers Wednesday

    Dumoulin dished out two helpers in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Capitals. Dumoulin provided the Penguins with some unexpected offensive production from the blue line, helping fill the void left by Kris Letang's one-game suspension. Don't expect a repeat any time soon, though, as the 24-year-old came in with just one assist in 13 career playoff games.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Out against Sabres

    Dumoulin (upper body) remains day-to-day and will not suit up against Buffalo on Tuesday. Dumoulin is reportedly improving and has not been ruled out Thursday versus Nashville. The young blueliner has yet to tally a goal this season, but has notched 16 helpers on the year. Given his limited scoring and mere 12 PIM, the 24-year-old offers little in terms of fantasy value, despite being an integral part of the Penguins defense.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Won't play against Rangers

    Dumoulin left Saturday's game with an upper-body injury and will not play Sunday against the Rangers. He's become a stabilizing force on the blue line and his presence will be missed. Derrick Pouliot is expected to replace him in the lineup.

    Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: In Thursday's lineup

    Dumoulin (undisclosed) will play in Thursday's game against the Devils. Dumoulin's missed just one contest this season, but with no goals and just 16 assists in 72 contests this season, his fantasy ownership likely only extends to those in the deepest of leagues. However, his recent addition to the man advantage could give him a bit more value in daily formats.
