Turris picked up an assist and two hits in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3. Turris has only two helpers in 12 games since being healthy scratched twice in March. It was a rough year in general for the center, who accumulated only 23 points in 55 games, his worst production since his first full campaign in 2008-09. Injuries accounted for some of his troubles, but he hasn't been good lately and can be avoided for postseason fantasy usage.
Turris (coach's decision) is expected to play Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports. Turris has struggled since returning from injury, as he only has four points in 16 games. That led to him getting benched for two contests, likely in an attempt to get him back on track heading into the playoffs. It remains to be seen where he draws back into the lineup should he return, though as Colton Sissons played well in Turris' absence.
Turris (coach's decision) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Sharks, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports. Turris has clearly landed in the doghouse, as Saturday marks the second straight game he will be sent to the press box. The veteran pivot has also seen his production fall off the table recently, with him tallying just four points since he returned from a lower-body injury Feb. 6. Turris' next chance to rejoin the lineup arrives Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.
Turris will sit as a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Kings, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports. Turris hasn't been very productive lately, notching two assists in his last eight games while posting a minus-1 rating over that span, so coach Peter Laviolette is clearly trying to light a fire under the veteran forward by bumping him from the lineup. Turris will likely return to action Saturday against the Sharks.
Turris assisted on Filip Forsberg's equalizer in a 3-2 shootout win over the Wild on Sunday. Turris contributed three shots on goal in the contest. The center has struggled this season with 21 points in 43 games. Turris can still provide value via the man advantage, though, where he has six of his 21 points this year while skating on the top unit.
