Zuccarello provided a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Blues in Game 5. Zuccarello has earned two of his four points on the power play through five playoff contests. The winger has added seven shots on net and a plus-1 rating, though his linemate Kirill Kaprizov has stolen the show a bit more on offense. Zuccarello remains a solid scoring winger, but he'll need to be at his best with the Wild's season on the line in Thursday's Game 6.
Zuccarello scored a goal on two shots and went plus-3 in Friday's 5-1 win over the Blues in Game 3. Zuccarello added an insurance tally in the second period as the Wild maintained a strong grip on the lead. The 34-year-old winger is up to a goal and two assists through three playoff outings. He's added five shots on net and a plus-2 rating. He'll continue to see top-line usage after racking up 79 points in 70 regular-season contests.
Zuccarello (lower body) will be in Monday's Game 1 lineup against the Blues, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Zuccarello tallied a career-high 79 points this season despite missing 12 games, including the final four of the regular season. He'll skate in his usual top-line role alongside Ryan Harton and Kirill Kaprizov. The veteran winger tallied seven points in his last five appearances.
Zuccarello (lower body) won't return to the lineup for Friday's regular-season finale versus the Avalanche, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports. Zuccarello will miss his third straight game to end the regular season. Per Pierce, head coach Dean Evason is optimistic for Zuccarello's chances to play Game 1 in the first-round series versus the Blues next week.
Zuccarello (lower body) will not be in the lineup versus Calgary on Thursday but hasn't been ruled out for Friday's matchup with the Avs, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. Given Zuccarello is at least close enough to returning to be considered for the regular-season finale, fantasy players should feel fairly confident he will be ready in time for the playoffs. If he can pick up one more point against Colorado, Zuccarello would reach the 80-point threshold for the first time in his 12-year NHL career.
