Turris scored a goal and added an assist during Wednesday's Game 3 win over Pittsburgh.
This was the first multi-point game of the postseason for Turris, and it improved him to just four goals and eight points through 15 games. After he scored a career-high 27 goals during the regular season, these playoffs have largely seen him disappoint fantasy owners. The Senators will need Turris to continue moving the offensive needle like he did Wednesday to advance past Pittsburgh.
Turris scored the game-winning goal in overtime Saturday in a 5-4 victory in Game 5 against the Rangers.
Turris scored off the rush. He has goals in back-in-back games and four points in five games against the Rangers. The Sens are now up 3-2 in the series heading to Madison Square Gardens.
Turris scored the lone Ottawa goal and picked up seven PIM in Thursday's Game 4 loss to the Rangers.
Turris struck with a late third-period snipe to ruin the shutout bid of Henrik Lundqvist. The top-line center has been somewhat of a factor in this series, also picking up points in the opening two games. Turris has a wicked shot and the Senators will need to see more of that from him if they hope to change the momentum of this series. He scored 27 times in the regular season, but has only found twine twice this postseason, so we know there's another level he can get to.
Turris (rest) will indeed skip the regular-season finale Sunday against the Islanders.
Along with Turris, most of the big names (including Mark Stone, Mike Hoffman, Derick Brassard, Erik Karlson, Cody Ceci, Dion Phaneuf, Zack Smith and Viktor Stalberg) will skip the team's last regular-season tilt. All of them should be available again for Game 1 of the team's postseason run, though the exact date won't be confirmed until later Sunday.
Turris might be one of a handful of players rested in the regular-season finale against the Islanders Sunday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
The Senators do not have much to play for with their playoff spot already locked in, so there is no sense getting any of their regulars injured in a meaningless game. They might recall several from the AHL ranks to fill out their lines.
