Player Notes

  • David Backes scores the OT winner in GM 2
    David Backes scored the overtime winner in St. Louis' 4-3 win over the Stars in Game 2.

    Advice: Backes was standing in front of the net while the Blues' were on the power play, and he buried a rebound by Stars goalie Antti Niemi. Backes finished the game with a goal, an assist and seven hits in 20:55 of ice time. Alex Steen and Kevin Shattenkirk assisted on the game-winning goal. The Blues and Stars will head to St. Louis with their best of-seven series tied 1-1. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago
  • Ducks don't blame Boudreau for failures
    Andrew Cogliano doesn't blame former head coach Bruce Boudreau for the Ducks' playoff failures.

    Advice: "This isn't on Bruce," Cogliano said. "I think a lot of guys need to know where they're at and figure out where we went wrong. A lot of them have been here for a while. I'm not just talking the captains. We don't have a lot of young guys in the lineup. … Today's a much different feeling leaving the rink. In those [previous] years there's been a sense of hope. Today, there's zero feeling like that." Rotoworld.com Today, 10:14 am
  • Bolts hurt opponents with their speed
    The Tampa Bay Lightning know that when they use their speed, they're tough to beat.

    Advice: The Bolts did just that in Saturday's Game 2 win over the New York Islanders. They were led by center Tyler Johnson, who had two goals and an assist in the game. "We might not be the biggest team, we might not hit all the time, but when we use our speed and we're relentless, that's annoying to play against," said Johnson. "I hate when teams are that way as well. When we're moving our feet, when we're working together, reading off each other and creating no time and space for the other team, that's huge." The best-of-seven series is tied 1-1. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:03 am
  • Nick Bonino having a great playoff
    Nick Bonino picked up his eighth point in the playoffs Saturday.

    Advice: Bonino notched his seventh assist of the post-season as he drew the lone helper on Carl Hagelin's second period goal. You likely didn't pick Bonino early in your playoff pool so kudos on the nice selection. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:46 am
  • Chris Tierney moves up to third line center
    Chris Tierney moved up to the third line center spot at the start of the third period Friday.

    Advice: Coach Peter DeBoer switched Tierney and Matt Nieto as Tierney found himself between Patrick Marleau and Melker Karlsson while Nieto moved to the fourth line with Tommy Wingels and Nick Spaling. DeBoer thought that all four lines started to play better at that point and it resulted in the Sharks scoring five times in the final period for the win. Look for Tierney to start Game 2 on the third unit. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:50 am
