Barbashev won't face supplementary discipline from the league for his hit on Tomas Hertl in Game 5 on Sunday, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports. As Greg Wyshynski stated, the league was unable to determine conclusively that the head was the main point of contact, which means Barbashev will be available for Tuesday's Game 6 clash. Through the first five contests of the series, the winger notched one goal, one assist and eight shots while averaging 13:09 of ice time. While he is unlikely to put up significant production due to his bottom-six role, the Russian might be a solid depth option for fantasy owners heading into Tuesday's tilt.
Barbashev scored a goal and added two PIM in Friday's 2-1 win over the Sharks in Game 4. Barbashev pounced on a misplayed puck from Sharks defenseman Brent Burns just 35 seconds into the game, quickly slotting home the loose puck. The 23-year-old winger now has points in consecutive contests, and has added 10 hits and five shots on goal in four games in the series.
Barbashev collected an assist and three hits in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Sharks in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals. Barbashev has managed three helpers in 16 games, adding 46 hits and 10 shots on goal. He entered Wednesday's contest averaging only 10:47 per game, with his fourth-line usage making his contributions to the offense few and far between.
Barbashev produced an assist and two hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 1. He did not register a point in six games versus the Jets in the first round. Barbashev does have 22 hits in the playoffs so far, but 10 of those came in Game 3 against the Jets. The Russian center is limited by his fourth-line deployment, even though he had a career-high 26 points in 80 regular-season contests.
Barbashev scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's win over the Flyers. Barbashev opened the scoring early in the first period by batting a rebound out of the air and into the net. He later notched a primary assist on Alexander Steen's insurance score in the third frame to mark his fourth multi-point game of the season. Barbashev now has 26 points through 79 games, doubling last year's 13-point mark.
