    Senators' Angus Crookshank: Signs new deal
    44m ago

    Crookshank signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Senators on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

    Crookshank made his NHL debut in 2023-24, picking up three points, 20 shots on net, 20 hits and a minus-3 rating over 13 appearances. He also had 46 points in 50 contests with AHL Belleville. Crookshank will likely spend some time in the minors in 2024-25, but he may be ready to push for a larger role at the NHL level.

    Oilers' Evander Kane: Questionable for Thursday

    Kane (hip) is questionable for Game 3 against Florida on Thursday, per Dan Rosen of NHL.com.

    Kane has four goals, eight points, 37 PIM and 64 hits in 20 playoff contests this year. Corey Perry, who was a healthy scratch in Game 2 on Monday, is projected to draw back into the lineup at the expense of Ryan McLeod. However, if Kane is unavailable, then both Perry and McLeod might dress versus the Panthers.

    Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Slated to play in Game 3

    Nurse (hip) is expected to play in Game 3 against Florida on Thursday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports Wednesday.

    Nurse was initially questionable after sustaining a hip injury during Monday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers, and that concern only grew after he missed Wednesday's practice, per Reid Wilkins of 630 CHED. However, coach Kris Knoblauch expects the 29-year-old defenseman to be available. Nurse has struggled in the 2024 playoffs, recording just three assists and posting a terrible minus-15 rating.

    Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Making progress
    1d ago

    Barkov (upper body) is progressing ahead of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Thursday against Edmonton, according to Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site.

    Barkov's availability for Thursday's contest is in question due to an injury he sustained during the third period of Monday's 4-1 victory over the Oilers. He will be assessed further Wednesday, but head coach Paul Maurice expressed optimism Tuesday that they will be in "good shape" if the 28-year-old forward continues to make positive progress. Barkov has registered six goals and 19 points in 19 outings this postseason.

    Ellis agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with St. Louis on Tuesday.

    Ellis split his time between the AHL and ECHL this season, logging 16 games for AHL Springfield in which he posted a 7-9-0 record and .924 save percentage while also going 12-5-2 for ECHL Orlando. Selected by the Blues in the third round of the 2019 NHL Draft, the Nova Scotia native shouldn't be expected to make his NHL debut anytime soon but could push for a more prominent role with the AHL Thunderbirds.

    Bennett registered an assist in a 4-1 Game 2 victory over the Oilers on Monday.

    Bennett extended his point streak to five games, having notched three goals, three assists and 15 shots over that stretch. In addition, the 27-year-old winger is adding plenty of physicality, dishing out 32 hits in those five outings. Despite averaging 2:07 of ice time with the man advantage, Bennett hasn't recorded a power-play point in his last six appearances.

    Oilers' Connor McDavid: Records assist in loss
    2d ago

    McDavid registered his team-leading 27th assist of the postseason in Monday's 4-1 loss against Florida in Game 2.

    McDavid had the primary assist on Mattias Ekholm's first-period marker. McDavid added three shots, one hit and a plus-1 rating in 25:59 of ice time Monday. Florida has executed well when it comes to containing Edmonton's superstar and his supporting cast -- the Oilers have scored only once through two games. McDavid and the Oilers are also 0-for-7 on the power play in this series. The 27-year-old will attempt to help Edmonton avoid a three-game deficit when they host Florida for Game 3 on Thursday. McDavid leads the Oilers with 32 points (five goals) in 20 postseason contests.

    Lundell registered a pair of primary assists in Monday's 4-1 win versus Edmonton in Game 2.

    Lundell had an even-strength assist on Niko Mikkola's second-period tally before adding the primary helper on Evan Rodrigues' power-play goal in the final frame. Lundell added one shot, one block, two hits and a plus-1 rating in 16:02 of ice time. The 22-year-old moved into fourth on the team in postseason scoring after his two-point effort Monday. The middle-six center has 14 points (three goals) and a plus-8 rating through 19 postseason appearances.

    Rodrigues scored twice in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Oilers in Game 2.

    Rodrigues extended his point streak to three games and goal streak to two contests thanks to Monday's performance. The 30-year-old added two shots, two hits and a plus-1 rating in 14:38 of ice time. Rodrigues has proven to be an important part of Florida's attack -- he's currently playing alongside Matthew Tkachuk and Sam Bennett on the second line. Rodrigues also has three markers through the first two outings of the Stanley Cup Finals, while no other player has more than one. The Toronto native is up to six goals, five assists and a plus-2 rating in 19 playoff contests.

    Oilers' Warren Foegele: Ejected from Game 2
    1d ago

    Foegele was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct in Game 2 versus the Panthers on Monday.

    Foegele was dismissed from the game due to his knee-on-knee hit against Eetu Luostarinen, who did eventually return to the game. For his part, the 28-year-old Foegele was limited to just 1:54 of ice time due to his ejection, which extended his 16-game goal drought. Since he was given a game misconduct, it seems unlikely the winger will receive any additional discipline, and he should be an option for Game 3 on Thursday.

    Vesey still hoped to return at some point in the postseason, but now he'll spend a few weeks in New York to continue his rehab following the Rangers' elimination from the playoffs. The 31-year-old forward doesn't expect to need offseason surgery. He notched 13 goals and 26 points in 80 regular-season contests during the 2023-24 campaign.

    Stars' Mason Marchment: Nets lone goal in loss

    Marchment scored a goal on two shots and added five hits in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    Marchment batted home a pass from Tyler Seguin while crashing the net in the third period. That goal briefly gave the Stars hope for a comeback, but a tying goal never materialized. Marchment had three goals and two assists over 13 playoff outings, though it's unclear if he had any lingering effects from an undisclosed injury he suffered in the first round. The 28-year-old winger has two years left on his current contract, so it's expected he'll around to provide grit and depth scoring in a middle-six role for the Stars in 2024-25.

    Ekman-Larsson garnered an assist in a 4-1 Game 2 victory over Edmonton on Monday.

    Ekman-Larsson was able to end a 10-game pointless streak dating back to May 10 versus Boston. Despite the helper, the blueliner remains mired in a 15-game goal drought, during which he's registered a mere 17 shots on net. Even with his limited production, Ekman-Larsson continues to see opportunities with the No. 2 power-play unit.

    Ekblad was able to bring a 31-game goal drought to a close, having last found the back of the net Feb. 20 versus the Senators. The blueliner's fantasy value figures to primarily come from defensive stats -- he has racked up 13 hits and 16 blocks across his last five outings -- but adding some offensive production should bolster his outlook heading into Game 3 on Thursday.

    Nurse offered little in the way of fantasy impact in Game 2, posting zero shots, zero hits and just one block in his limited 4:20 of ice time. If the veteran blueliner can't go Thursday for Game 3, Cody Ceci figures to rejoin the lineup after serving as a healthy scratch Monday.

    Bouchard recorded an assist in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers in Game 2.

    Bouchard has been a model of consistency when it comes to production from the backend -- he hasn't been held off the scoresheet in consecutive contests for the entirety of the postseason. His assist in Monday's loss tied him with Leon Draisaitl for second on the team in points (28) during the playoffs. After recording a career-high 82 points in 81 regular-season appearances, Bouchard is setting personal bests in playoff scoring as well. The 24-year-old defenseman has six goals, 22 assists and a team-leading plus-12 rating through 20 postseason contests.

    Ekholm opened the scoring in the first period of Monday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers in Game 2.

    Ekholm has been a pleasant source of goal scoring for Edmonton during their Stanley Cup run -- he supplied his fifth marker of the playoffs in Monday's loss. His previous career high was with Nashville during the 2015-16 postseason, when he scored three goals in 14 appearances. The 34-year-old added three shots, five blocks and one hit in 24:54 of ice time in Game 2. As well-rounded of a player as Ekholm is, surprisingly, he hasn't registered an assist in 11 consecutive contests. The first-pair defenseman is up to five goals and three assists with a plus-7 rating through 20 postseason appearances.

    Lightning's Hugo Alnefelt: Returning to Swedish club

    Alnefelt inked a three-year contract with former club HV71 (Sweden) on Tuesday.

    Alnefelt is expected to be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the Lightning could retain his NHL rights by giving him a qualifying offer. Having said that, the fact that the backstop signed a three-year deal would certainly seem to indicate he won't be returning to North America. With AHL Syracuse this past season, the 23-year-old Swede went 14-8-4 with a 2.76 GAA and an .893 save percentage. Alnefelt made one appearance for the Bolts back in 2021-22, and that seems likely to be his only NHL outing for his professional career.

    Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Consecutive losses to open series

    Skinner stopped 25 of 28 shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to Florida in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Skinner didn't have much support in front of him in Game 2 -- the Oilers had seven shots on goal through the first two frames. It was only the second time in his last 10 outings that Skinner has allowed more than two goals in a contest. The 25-year-old has an .886 save percentage through two games in this series, though Edmonton hasn't been able to provide the netminder with offensive support (one goal over two games). The last time Skinner lost consecutive contests in the postseason, he rebounded with three straight wins -- the Oilers will need that trend to continue when they head back to Edmonton for Game 3 on Thursday. Skinner is 11-7 with a 2.51 GAA and an .896 save percentage through 18 playoff appearances.

    Bobrovsky made 18 saves on 19 shots in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Oilers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Bobrovsky is now two wins away from helping the Panthers raise the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. The 35-year-old has won five consecutive contests while not allowing more than two goals in a game during that span. Bob has been beaten by Edmonton only once in the series, making a total of 50 saves on 51 shots. The Russian netminder has lost consecutive outings just once this postseason, so it'll be an uphill battle for the Oilers going forward. Bobrovsky is 14-5 with a 2.02 GAA and a .916 save percentage through 19 postseason appearances.

Edmonton has allowed more than 25 shots in only two of those nine contests, so fantasy managers should expect Skinner to continue facing a light workload.

    Bobrovsky is slated to be between the pipes at home for Game 2 against the Oilers on Monday, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    Bobrovsky was phenomenal in Game 1, stopping all 32 shots he faced to record his second playoff shutout. The netminder is currently riding a four-game winning streak during which he posted a 1.24 GAA and .953 save percentage. Considering the Russian hasn't sat a game out since the regular-season finale versus Toronto on April 16, he figures to remain the Panthers' preferred option in the crease the rest of the way.
