Fiala scored a power-play goal on two shots and added an assist in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 6. Fiala set up Ryan Hartman for the opening tally on an odd-man rush in the third period. The Golden Knights lost a challenge a few minutes later, and Fiala scored on the ensuing power play. The Swiss winger had been quiet in the postseason prior to Wednesday -- he now has two points in six contests. He's added a minus-4 rating, 20 shots on net and 15 hits in a middle-six role.
Fiala (rest) will return to the lineup for Sunday's Game 1 against the Golden Knights, Sarah McLellan of Star Tribune Sports reports. Fiala sat out Minnesota's regular-season finale but was never in any danger of missing the postseason opener. The 24-year-old winger contributed an even 20 goals and 20 assists over 50 regular-season contests and will now get an opportunity to add to his career postseason totals, which stand at eight goals and two assists in 24 games between the Predators and Wild.
Fiala (rest) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Blues, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. Fiala is one of five Wild skaters to sit out Thursday's contest. The 24-year-old recently missed a game with a lower-body injury, but he should be good to go once the Wild's playoff run begins. Fiala will end the regular season with 20 goals and 40 points in 50 outings.
Fiala (lower body) will play Friday against Anaheim, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. Fiala missed just one game while dealing with a lower-body issue and will slide back into a middle-six role Friday. The 24-year-old has racked up 20 goals and 39 points in 47 games this season.
Fiala (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Friday's matchup with Anaheim, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. Fiala has been red hot recently, racking up six goals and 13 points through his last eight games, so fantasy managers will want to keep a close eye on his status ahead of puck drop Friday night.
