  • Barclay Goodrow NYR LW
    Rangers' Barclay Goodrow: Appears set to return
    3h ago

    Goodrow (lower body) took line rushes in warmups, indicating he'll play Saturday's Game 6 versus the Hurricanes, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Goodrow has missed 11 games with the injury he suffered in the first game of the playoffs. The 29-year-old is expected to return in a fourth-line role, so he'll likely be eased back into action after the lengthy absence. Kevin Rooney will exit the lineup to account for Goodrow's return.

    Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Starting in Game 6
    3h ago

    Raanta will guard the road goal in Saturday's Game 6 versus the Rangers, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Raanta is making his 10th straight postseason start, and he's looking to pick up his first road win of these playoffs. In 11 appearances, he has been excellent with a 1.99 GAA and a .931 save percentage. A win Saturday would advance the Hurricanes to the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Tending twine in Game 6
    3h ago

    Shesterkin will guard the home goal in Saturday's Game 6 versus the Hurricanes. Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Shesterkin will look to bounce back yet again after losing a tough Game 5 on Thursday. The 26-year-old has a 6-5 record, a 2.80 GAA and a .924 save percentage in 12 playoff appearances. The Hurricanes are 0-5 on the road this postseason, and Shesterkin will look to keep them winless in their travels to potentially force a Game 7 on Monday.

    Flames' Milan Lucic: Has AC joint sprain
    4h ago

    Lucic (shoulder) played through an AC joint sprain in the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Lucic's injury didn't stop him from throwing the body around -- he logged 25 hits and added 33 PIM with one assist in 12 playoff games. The 33-year-old winger has one more year left on his contract at a $5.25 million cap hit. Barring an offseason move, he projects to play in a bottom-six role for the Flames in 2022-23.

    Flames' Oliver Kylington: Managing shoulder injury
    4h ago

    Kylington played through a shoulder injury in the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    It's unclear how long Kylington had to carry the shoulder injury, but he missed time in April due to an upper-body injury after taking a hard hit into the boards. Steinberg adds that Kylington is not expected to need surgery, so the injury isn't likely to be a problem in 2022-23. The RFA defenseman took a big step forward in 2022-23 with 31 points, 138 shots on net, 79 blocked shots and a plus-34 rating in 73 regular-season contests.

    Flames' Andrew Mangiapane: Played through wrist issue
    4h ago

    Mangiapane played through a wrist injury in the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Mangiapane was limited to six points and 27 shots in 12 playoff outings. The 26-year-old's dip in production was a large part of the Flames' struggles to keep pace with the Oilers in their five-game series loss in the second round. Mangiapane is set for restricted free agency this summer, and his 35-goal, 55-point regular season should command him a significant raise after he took a bridge deal in 2020.

  • Robert Thomas STL C
    Blues' Robert Thomas: Collects assist Friday
    23h ago

    Thomas posted an assist and two PIM in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 6.

    Thomas' offense came alive late in the second round with two goals and an assist in his last two games, but it wasn't enough to save the Blues' season. He set up a Justin Faulk tally in the first period Friday. Thomas had six points, 20 shots on net, 14 hits, 10 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 12 postseason contests, showing some flashes of offense with room to grow on defense. The 22-year-old was excellent with 20 goals, 57 assists and a plus-17 rating in 72 regular-season outings, so he should be a fairly popular mid-to-late round pick in next season's fantasy drafts.

  • Brayden Schenn STL C
    Blues' Brayden Schenn: Chips in with assist
    23h ago

    Schenn posted an assist and five hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 6.

    Schenn set up Jordan Kyrou on an odd-man rush that produced the Blues' second goal. With an assist in seven of the last eight games, Schenn was solid on offense, but he wasn't able to find a goal in the playoffs. He finished with eight helpers, 44 hits, 16 shots on net, 14 PIM and a minus-1 rating. The 30-year-old's versatility will keep him as a key part of the Blues' offense heading into next year -- he's under contract for six more seasons.

    Blues' Jordan Kyrou: Tallies in Game 6 loss
    23h ago

    Kyrou scored a goal on five shots and added two hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 6.

    Kyrou's goal gave the Blues a 2-1 lead midway through the second period. The 24-year-old finished the second round with points in five of six games (four goals, one assist), but that's where the Blues' playoff run ended. He had nine points, 32 shots and a minus-4 rating in 12 playoff outings, and he posted 27 goals and 48 helpers in 74 regular-season contests in a breakout year. He's entering a contract year in 2022-23 as he looks to show this year wasn't a fluke.

    Avalanche's Darren Helm: Seals series with late goal
    1d ago

    Helm scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Friday's 3-2 win over the Blues in Game 6.

    Helm tallied with 5.6 seconds left in the third period, giving the Avalanche their first lead of the contest. That was the series-clinching goal to send them through to the Western Conference Finals against the Oilers. The tally was Helm's first of the postseason, and he's added one assist, 10 shots, 45 hits and a plus-2 rating in a bottom-six role through 10 outings.

    Flames' Blake Coleman: Nabs pair of assists

    Coleman picked up two assists, seven hits and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    This was one of Coleman's better performances in the playoffs. He also nearly had a go-ahead goal in the third period, but a video review determined he kicked the puck into the net. In 12 playoff outings, Coleman managed just five points with 33 shots on net, 41 hits, 12 PIM and a plus-5 rating. He had 33 points in 81 regular-season contests in his first season of a six-year contract with the Flames.

    Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Battled bruised hand
    4h ago

    Tkachuk was nursing a hand injury during the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Tkachuk was involved in a few fights early in the first round, which may have been when he picked up the injury. The winger still managed 10 points in 12 playoff contests, but he was silenced in the last three games of the second round. The 24-year-old is a pending restricted free agent looking to cash in big after a 42-goal, 104-point regular season. It's unlikely his hand injury will linger throughout the offseason and it won't require surgery.

    O'Connor set up Darren Helm's tally with 5.6 seconds left in the third period. That clinched the game and the series for the Avalanche, who are set to face the Oilers in the Western Conference Finals. Through seven playoff outings, O'Connor's been limited to two points while adding seven shots on net, nine hits and a plus-2 rating in a fourth-line role.

    Burakovsky notched an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Blues in Game 6.

    Burakovsky was healthy scratched in the last two games, but he retook his place in the lineup over Alex Newhook on Friday. The move paid off -- the Avalanche's top players were kept quiet, but Burakovsky helped out on a J.T. Compher tally in the second period. The assist was Burakovsky's first point since his three-point effort in Game 4 of the first round versus the Predators. He's at one goal, three helpers, seven shots on net, six hits and a plus-2 rating through eight playoff appearances.

The 27-year-old had a career-best 22 points with 181 hits, 106 shots on net and 77 PIM in 74 regular-season outings. A pending free agent, Zadorov is unlikely to see more than a third-pairing role regardless of where he signs for 2022-23.

    At this point there's no reason to believe Ekman-Larsson won't be back to 100 percent well ahead of next season's training camp. The 30-year-old defender picked up 29 points and a plus-5 rating while averaging 22:19 of ice time through 79 games in 2021-22.
