Tuch recorded an assist and two hits in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Canadiens in Game 4. Tuch had the secondary assist on Nicolas Roy's game-winning goal 1:18 into overtime. With Chandler Stephenson (upper body) sidelined, Tuch has filled in as the top-line center. He's up to nine points, 39 shots on net, 36 hits and a plus-6 rating through 17 playoff contests. The 25-year-old's offense could see a small boost while skating between Max Pacioretty and Mark Stone at even strength.
Tuch notched an assist and six hits in Monday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 1. Tuch set up Mattias Janmark for a goal at 12:58 of the second period. In his last three games, Tuch has a goal and two assists. The power winger is up to eight points, 30 shots on net, 30 hits and a plus-6 rating through 14 playoff outings. He's likely to remain in a third-line role, but he should provide scoring depth.
Tuch notched an assist, two shots on goal and four hits in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche in Game 6. Tuch set up Alex Pietrangelo's second-period tally, which was both the game-winner and series-clincher. The 25-year-old Tuch wasn't a big factor during the second round with a goal and an assist in six games. He's up to seven points, 29 shots, 24 hits and a plus-5 rating through 13 playoff outings. His scoring output could be limited since he only sees third-line usage when the Golden Knights' forward group is healthy.
Tuch provided a goal on three shots and added three hits in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over Colorado in Game 5. Tuch got the Golden Knights on the board just 63 seconds into the third period, finding himself in alone behind the Colorado defense and batting a puck out of mid-air to make it a 2-1 game. It was the fourth goal of the playoffs for the 25-year-old, but his first in the last eight contests.
Tuch (undisclosed) is on the ice for warmups and is expected to suit up for Game 3 against Colorado on Friday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Tuch missed Friday's morning skate but clearly isn't dealing with anything too serious. The 25-year-old has five points and a plus-4 rating through nine games this postseason. He should skate in his usual middle-six role.
