Player Notes

  • Evgeni Malkin pointless in series
    Evgeni Malkin ended up pointless in the playoffs.

    Advice: Well, that was bad news for poolies who took him, never mind for the Penguins who are now out of the post-season after the Rangers took the opening round series in five games. Malkin apparently was dealing with an undisclosed injury and that should be known shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • No update on Mats Zuccarello
    There is no update on Mats Zuccarello who took a puck to the face in the first period Friday and did not return.

    Advice: Zuccarello was injured when he took teammate's Ryan McDonagh's shot in the head. "I was told he was all right, but I didn't get into it," coach Alain Vigneault said. The next round should start on Wednesday or Thursday but there may not be an update on the Norwegian forward before the start of the series. Rotoworld.com

  • Tomas Fleischmann picks up an assist
    Tomas Fleischmann picked up an assist in Game 4.

    Advice: Fleischmann had been a healthy scratch in all but six games since his trade from Florida at the deadline but played admirably in Games 3 and 4 on the fourth unit. "Fleisch has been unreal for us," defenseman Hampus Lindholm said. "He really deserved to get a goal there in the first game he came in. In the second game, he played really good. He deserved that spot. It's fun to see guys coming in like that." Fleischmann could continue to see action in the second round as Steve Wagner is still hurt. Rotoworld.com

  • Coyle the beneficiary of Vanek's slick work
    Charlie Coyle scored his first goal of the playoffs, helping to seal Minnesota's 4-1 Game Five victory on Friday night.

    Advice: Coyle's role was important, he got himself open and hit the net. But it was Thomas Vanek's hard work that helped set up the tally. Vanek beat Blues defender Jay Bouwmeester to the puck by the penalty box and rushed for the net. After being forced into the far corner, Vanek maintained control despite being surrounded by Bouwmeester, Patrik Berglund, and Alex Pietrangelo and found Coyle top of the right offensive corner for the one-timer.

  • Niederreiter nets one after Stewart dishes
    Nino Niederreiter netted his second goal of the playoffs during Friday's 4-1 Game Five victory over St. Louis.

    Advice: Niederreiter made some space for himself in the slot while teammate Chris Stewart grinded away along the wall before dishing through a couple of sticks. Stewart's effort is exactly the kind of work that wins playoff games. Niederreiter's goal however, is what validates the mindset. Rotoworld.com
