Player Notes

  • Matt Hunwick is a healthy scratch for Game 3
    The Rangers will use the same lineup from Games 1 and 2 which means Matt Hunwick will be a healthy scratch for Game 3 Monday night.

    Advice: With Kevin Klein now fully recovered from a broken forearm, Hunwick is the odd man out on the Rangers blue line. He was a huge help to the Rangers defense for the last month of the season and in the first round of the playoffs, but will unfortunately have to watch from the press box for the remainder of the playoffs unless a defenseman goes down with an injury. In the five game series with the Penguins, Hunwick was unable to record a point. Chris Summers and Ryan Bourque will also be scratched for Game 3 Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Arcobello helps USA top Russia in Worlds
    Mark Arcobello netted the game-winning goal in Team USA's 4-2 victory over Russia in Group B competition in the 2015 World Championship.

    Advice: It was a surprising upset as Russia's squad featured many of their best players while Team USA is somewhat short on NHL experience. That being said, it was the NHLers that led the charge for the Americans as Brock Nelson, Torey Krug, and Trevor Lewis accounted for the United States' three other goals. If you haven't been following the tournament, then it's worth emphasizing that this was a round robin game, so Russia still has a chance to bounce back. Rotoworld.com

  • Alex Killorn gets two points in Game 2 Sunday
    Alex Killorn recorded two assists in a 6-2 win against Montreal in Game 2 on Sunday.

    Advice: With that victory, Tampa Bay has a 2-0 series lead over Montreal. Killorn has played a significant role in the Lightning's postseason success with his two goals and six points in nine playoff contests. That's particularly impressive when you consider that he was limited to 38 points in 71 regular season contests. Rotoworld.com

  • Penalty troubles cost Montreal Sunday
    Max Pacioretty felt the team's penalty troubles was part of the reason they suffered a 6-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.

    Advice: "It messes up the flow of the game," Pacioretty said. "You have guys sitting on the bench, guys have to play defense. It gave them some momentum, but it took away our spirit." Not only that, the Lightning also proved to be very effective with the man advantage in Game 2. They went 4-for-8 on the power play, which accounts for the entire margin of victory. If Montreal wants to bounce back in this series, it has to do a better job of staying out of the sin bin. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Getzlaf has 10 points in six games
    Ryan Getzlaf had two assists in Anaheim's 3-0 win over Calgary on Sunday.

    Advice: Getzlaf has two goals and 10 points in six playoff contests so far. That's an incredible start and one of the reasons Anaheim is 6-0 so far in the playoffs. If the Flames want to bounce back after dropping the first two games of their series, they have to find a way to minimize Getzlaf and linemate Corey Perry's impact. Rotoworld.com
