  • Columbus promotes Jeremy Smith
    Jeremy Smith has been summoned by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

  • Cam Ward reflects on poor campaign
    Cam Ward had a terrible 2013-14 campaign.

    Advice: Ward was plagued by injuries and ended up with a 3.06 GAA and .898 save percentage in 30 games. "I struggled to get comfortable all season long," Ward said. "Obviously I got the injury, and coming back from that I felt like I was playing catchup. I wasn't able to get consecutive games to try and get my game going. Anton had a great season. I was never able to get into a rhythm." At this point, it wouldn't be surprising if Carolina's preference is to go into 2014-15 with Anton Khudobin as the team's starter. They might trade Ward if there's a team out there that will take his $6.3 million cap hit through 2015-16. Rotoworld.com

  • Anders Lindback is eager to step up
    Anders Lindback played well down the stretch for the Lightning after making some adjustments to his game.

    Advice: "Just way more patient," Lindback said. "I feel like I'm more consistent in everything I do out there. You just keep pushing. It's time to take it to another level." He has worked on not making the first move when shooters challenge him, which has given him a quieter and more steady style. He'll start Game 1 of Tampa Bay's first-round series against Montreal because Ben Bishop isn't ready to return yet from an elbow injury. "When you get an opportunity, you have to take advantage of it," Lindback said. Rotoworld.com

  • Ducks might start Frederik Andersen in Game 1
    Frederik Andersen might be the Anaheim Ducks' opening game starter.

    Advice: Jonas Hiller has been struggling lately and he admitted the slump has gotten to him. Andersen is a rookie with just 28 games worth of NHL experience, but did post an impressive 2.29 GAA and .923 save percentage this season. Rotoworld.com

    Ben Bishop (elbow) won't be available for Game 1 on Wednesday.

  • Anders Lindback likely starter for Lightning
    With Ben Bishop doubtful to return from what Tampa Bay officials are calling an upper body injury, Anders Lindback likely will get the call in net Wednesday night for the first game of the Lightning's opening playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Lindback earned the first star of the week in the NHL for the period ending April 13. He was thrust into action after Bishop's injury. He posted a 3-0-0 record with a 0.67 GAA and .975 save percentage. Whatever doubts might have lingered when the Bolts were forced to turn to Lindback were washed away in the goalie's three appearances down the stretch. "He's playing with a lot of confidence,'' defenseman Matt Carle said. "So, it's no surprise to see how well he's doing. And it's just great for our team and we have a lot of confidence playing in front of him.'' That's a far cry from where Lindback was for most of the season. As Bishop posted franchise records with 37 wins, a 2.24 goals-against average and .924 save percentage, Lindback was relegated to backup duties, rarely seeing playing time. Rotoworld.com

  • No-brainer: Carey Price to face Lightning
    Carey Price will, of course, be in goal when the Montreal Canadiens open their first-round playoff series against the Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday night.

    Advice: Price has been strong against Tampa, with a 1.42 GAA and a .956 save percentage. "I expect Carey to be the same leader for us that he's been all season long," said Habs coach Michel Therrien. "He's matured and he's playing with a lot of confidence." Rotoworld.com

  • Sharks won't say who Game 1 starter is
    The San Jose Sharks aren't naming their starting goaltender for Game 1.

    Advice: The fact that it's even possible that backup goalie Alex Stalock might start over Antti Niemi is telling. Niemi dropped off from his superb 2013 numbers with a 2.39 GAA and .913 save percentage in 64 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • GM thinks G Roberto Luongo can draw stars
    Florida general manager Dale Tallon is confident that he can bring key players to the Panthers in the off-season partly because he acquired established goalie Roberto Luongo during the season.

    Advice: With a top-end goalie like Luongo as a key selling point, Tallon is confident players will want to come south and help put the Panthers back on track. "You sell winning, the desire to win,'' Tallon said. "We now have the ability to put the pieces together, and that's what players want. . .I was denied for two years in Chicago. We were an Original Six team, great city. No one wanted to come because the perception was we didn't want to win. That perception has gone away, and it has gone away here. We're going to get guys who want to win.'' Rotoworld.com

  • G Kari Lehtonen looking to carry Dallas Stars
    Goalie Kari Lehtonen is determined to push the Dallas Stars forward in the playoffs and is comfortable he can do so his way.

    Advice: "I'm excited for this opportunity," Lehtonen 30, said of starting the playoffs Wednesday against the Anaheim Ducks. "We've been working for this, and now we want to get in there and see what we can do. It's a great time." Lehtonen added: "I have worked all year for this moment, and I think I'm ready." Lehtonen overcame a concussion and a groin strain to play in a league-high 65 games this season. He last was in the postseason in 2007 as a member of the Atlanta Thrashers. Just 23 at the time, he had helped the Thrashers make the playoffs for the first time by forging a 34-24-9 record. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Smith should be over knee injury soon
    Mike Smith sustained an MCL sprain to his right knee back on March 24 that sidelined him for the last 10 games of the regular season.

    Advice: He was initially projected to be out of action for two to four weeks, so he should get clearance shortly. Unfortunately, his injury came at a bad time for the Coyotes, as they were battling for a playoff spot down the stretch and came up just short of earning the final wild card spot in the Western Conference.

  • Anders Lindback receives 1st star of the week
    Anders Lindback earned the first star of the week for the period ending April 13.

Lindback posted a 3-0-0 record with a 0.67 goals-against average, .975 save percentage and one shutout to earn the weekly honor. He'll start the playoffs for the Lightning if Bishop isn't ready to go by then. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Miller seeks rebound in postseason
    Ryan Miller will be looking to get back on track in the playoffs.

    Advice: "Obviously it's been a tough stretch as far as goals-against, but I don't feel like I'm in a really bad place," Miller said. "I feel like I'm in a pretty good place, honestly. ...I can compete. I just have to worry about battling and competing. It was going to be the same job no matter what. Once you get to the playoffs everybody's at zeros, so compete." He owns a 10-8-1 record with a 2.47 GAA and a .903 save percentage since joining the Blues, but he lost five games in a row to end the regular season and allowed 18 goals over that span.

  • Penguins recall Tomas Vokoun from minors
    The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled goaltender Tomas Vokoun from the minors.

    Advice: Vokoun was sent to the minors over the weekend and he was 1-1 with the Baby Pens. Look for Vokoun to be the third string goalie behind Marc-Andre Fleury and Jeff Zatkoff in the playoffs.

  • Henrik Lundqvist getting ready for playoffs
    Henrik Lundqvist is getting ready for the post-season and feels that he doesn't have to prove himself in the playoffs.

    Advice: Lundqvist has a 30-37 record in the Stanley Cup playoffs but the record is deceiving as he has held the Rangers in numerous games that they should not have been in. "I don't feel I have to prove I can play in the playoffs, absolutely not," Lundqvist said. "My last seven years in Sweden, I won four championships, two professional, two in junior. Then the [2006] Olympics. I think I've played well in the playoffs. To win in the playoffs, it's about getting the group to be at its best at the right time. This is not tennis or golf. It is a team sport where together we have to push ourselves. Of course I need to play well, and I think I have done that in the playoffs. Yeah, I'll leave it at that." The Rangers play the Flyers in the first round. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 5:31 am
  • Anders Lindback gets another shutout for TBL
    If a small sample size of games is any indication, Anders Lindback might just be heating up at exactly the right time for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: With Ben Bishop's injury situation murky, the Lightning might need Lindback to start for some time. With Sunday's shutout, he generated two goose eggs in his last three appearances (all wins). That's a significant departure from his mostly lousy 2013-14 season. He's suddenly a wild card in playoff pools, especially if Bishop's injury news is bad. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:09 pm
  • Martin Brodeur wins in possible final start
    With the possibility of retirement or relocation from the New Jersey Devils in mind, Martin Brodeur earned an emotional win as his team beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Sunday.

    Advice: Brodeur, 41, finishes the 2013-14 season with a 19-14-6 record, .901 save percentage and 2.51 GAA. Now with 688 career wins, Brodeur could very well hit the 700-win mark if he comes back next season, even as a potential backup. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:16 pm
  • Kari Lehtonen, Trevor Daley also rest Sunday
    Along with Jamie Benn, Kari Lehtonen and Trevor Daley also get Sunday off for the Dallas Stars against the Phoenix Coyotes.

    Advice: The Stars probably hope that Tim Thomas won't make too many more appearances, as that would mean that Lehtonen either struggles or gets hurt. Thomas could be an excellent day-of pickup, even against what could very well be a bitter Coyotes team. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:50 pm
  • Ryan Miller suffers sixth straight loss
    Ryan Miller kicked out 18 of 21 shots in a 3-0 loss to Detroit on Sunday.

    Advice: Miller allowed a goal in each period of the season finale. He's allowed at least three goals in six consecutive games and has lost of all them. The Blues have to hope that their regular season slump doesn't carry into the playoffs, especially seeing as they will face the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks in the first round. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:17 pm
  • Martin Brodeur will start in season finale
    Martin Brodeur will play between the pipes on Sunday.

    Advice: This is just confirmation of what was already suspected. Brodeur would like to return for the 2013-14 campaign, although it remains to be seen what the market for him will be like. It's also unclear if he will want to play for the Devils knowing that he will be Cory Schneider's understudy. So this might be Brodeur's last game in a Devils' uniform, but that's far from a sure thing. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:37 am
  • Matthew Hackett's leg injury might be major
    Matthew Hackett's leg injury is feared to be serious.

    Advice: Hackett was taken off the ice on a stretcher in the third period of Saturday's game. "We're going to wrap him up as best as we can, get him back home, get our doctors to look at him, but it doesn't look too good," said Sabres coach Ted Nolan. Buffalo has one game left in its schedule, which Hackett obviously won't participate in. Given that, Hackett will recover over the Sabres' offseason. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:57 am
  • Mike Smith likely unavailable Sunday
    Mike Smith (knee) is unlikely to play on Sunday.

    Advice: Smith has been out three weeks and it coincided with the Coyotes current seven game losing streak that knocked them out of the playoffs. "I've had that injury before and for a skater or a guy out, you might be able to get away with it," coach Dave Tippett said. "But he's been practicing with a brace on, and he looks normal in there. But there's a couple movements he can't do, and I know where that comes from. It just grabs you and bites you. You can't get in the game and function that way and especially in that position. A forward might be able to get away with it. A goalie you're not going to get away with it." Smith will finish the season with a 27-21-10 record to go with a 2.64 GAA and a .915 save percentage. Look for Smith to improve on those numbers next season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:44 am
  • Martin Brodeur wants 700 career wins
    Look for Martin Brodeur to return to the NHL for another season as he wants 700 career wins.

    Advice: Brodeur, who may be playing his final game for the New Jersey Devils, is sitting at 687 wins which is well ahead of the retired Patrick Roy who is second with 551 wins. "A little bit. It's a round number," Brodeur said about winning 700. "You always look at 625, 650, 675. I'm close, so hopefully I'll have a chance to get it." Brodeur is slated to become an unrestricted free agent and if he chooses to return to New Jersey, he will likely back up Cory Schneider once again. Rotoworld.com

  • Ducks' G Frederik Andersen wins in shootout
    Goaltender Frederik Andersen made 27 saves in regulation and overtime before he and the Ducks defeated the Kings 4-3 in a shootout in Los Angeles Saturday night.

    Advice: Andersen now has a record of 20-5, a GAA of 2.29 and a save percentage of .923. He had been out for three games with a head injury. Anaheim will play the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference first round series in the Stanley Cup playoffs next week. The Ducks needed one point and they secured it by going to overtime after they traded late third-period goals with the Kings in the season-series finale. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:45 pm
  • G Mark Visentin takes 3-2 loss in NHL debut
    Mark Visentin stopped 29 shots but couldn't overcome a shaky start and was the losing goaltender in his NHL debut as the Phoenix Coyotes took a 3-2 loss Saturday night from the visiting San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Visentin allowed two goals to San Jose gunner Joe Pavelski in the first five shots he faced. "I definitely felt the jitters out there, but I thought the team did a great job coming back in the second, definitely helped me feel more comfortable out there," said Visentin, who was Phoenix's second-round pick in the 2010 NHL Draft. "I was having fun at times, but it stinks losing." Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Niemi ends his regular season impressively, with a record of 39-17-7, a GAA of 2.39 and a save percentage of .913. San Jose will face the Los Angeles Kings in a Western Conference first round matchup in the coming week. The Sharks-Kings series will be a rematch of a 2013 Western Conference Semifinal that the Kings won in seven games. Rotoworld.com

  • Carey Price stops 41 shots in shutout victory
    Montreal goaltender Carey Price turned in a strong game Saturday night, saving 41 New York shots in a 1-0, overtime triumph against the visiting Rangers.

    Advice: Canadiens captain Brian Gionta produced the game winner on a penalty shot. The win means the Habs still have a chance to start the Stanley Cup playoffs at home. They've known for days they will face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the playoffs' first round but the determination of home-ice advantage in the series won't be known until Tampa Bay visits Washington Sunday. The victory Saturday gave the Habs 100 points, the first time since 2007-08 that they hit the century mark and only the second since 1992-93, when they last won the Stanley Cup. The Habs leapfrogged the Lightning into second place in the Atlantic Division, with a one-point lead going into Tampa's final game. The Lightning must beat the Capitals to claim home-ice advantage in the first round as the Canadiens hold the first tiebreaker with more regulation and overtime wins. Price finishes his regular season with a 33-20-5 record, a .236 GAA and a .925 save percentage. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:33 pm
  • G Roberto Luongo makes 35 saves in loss
    The Florida Panthers ended their abysmal regular season Saturday night with another loss but their goalie stood out.

    Advice: Luongo steered aside 35 Columbus shots in the Panthers 3-2 loss in Florida. Luongo winds up his season with a 25-23-7 record, a 2.40 GAA and a .919 save percentage. The Panthers, of course, are going nowhere in the NHL's post-season except to the golf course. They have finished out of the playoffs 12 times in the past 13 seasons. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:19 pm
  • James Reimer good but ends season with loss
    Toronto goalie James Reimer lost for the first time in eight career starts in Ottawa Saturday night.

    Advice: But the beleaguered goalie turned in a strong effort, stopping 36 of 37 shots by the Senators. Reimer had entered with a 7-0 mark in Canada's capital city, including a 1.13 goals-against-average, .970 save percentage and two shutouts. But his teammates couldn't score and the Maple Leafs lost, 1-0. The Leafs' regular season is now over and Reimer may well be done as a Toronto goalie as he struggled for much of the schedule. He finishes the season with a record of 12-16-1, a GAA of 3.29 and a save percentage of .911. Rotoworld.com

  • Matthew Hackett leaves ice on stretcher
    Matthew Hackett was the latest Buffalo netminder to get injured on Saturday.

    Advice: He had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher after Torey Krug fell on his leg in the third period of a 4-1 loss to Boston. Krug collided with Hackett when he was sent flying by Sabres defenseman Jamie McBain. Hackett will be evaluated once the team returns to Buffalo. Buffalo's crease already has injuries to Jhonas Enroth, Michal Neuvirth and Nathan Lieuwen. Connor Knapp entered the game in relief to see the first NHL action of his career. Rotoworld.com

  • Martin Brodeur will start NJ's season finale
    Martin Brodeur will indeed start New Jersey's regular season finale on Sunday in a matinee affair against Boston.

    Advice: It may be his last start with the Devils and it could even be the last start of his excellent NHL career. "I'm just going to go out and play like it's another game, but definitely knowing in the back of my mind it might be my last one I'm going to play here-any for a while," said Brodeur. "So, I'll try to enjoy it as much as I can and, I think, for the team too we owe it to the fans, they've been really supportive throughout this season, to go out and make a good last impression." Brodeur hasn't posted very impressive numbers this season, but look for him to go out on a high note. Rotoworld.com

  • Frederik Andersen to start Sat. in his return
    Frederik Andersen is expected to start Saturday against Los Angeles.

    Advice: He was the first goaltender off the ice at the team's morning skate, so he'll get the nod after missing the past three games with a head injury. Andersen was hit in the helmet by a Shea Weber shot on April 4th. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:23 am
  • Coyotes tap Mark Visentin for first NHL start

  • Reimer to start v Sens Saturday night
    Look for James Reimer to start in goal Saturday night against the Senators.

    Advice: It is the Maple Leafs last game of a dismal season in which the team saw a sure playoff spot disappear with an ugly losing streak of eight consecutive regulation time losses. Reimer's future with Toronto is not clear as he personally struggled for much of the campaign and is clearly behind Jonathan Bernier on the club's depth chart. Rotoworld.com

    Coach Pete DeBoer would prefer to have Martin Brodeur start Sunday afternoon's season finale against Boston.

Brodeur made 28 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders on Friday night in his first appearance since Mar. 31. It's possible that Cory Schneider could get the nod depending on how Brodeur feels. Brodeur could be making his final appearance with the Devils before deciding on his future in the summer.

  • Luongo to start Saturday night v Jackets
    Roberto Luongo will start in goal Saturday night against the Blue Jackets.

    Advice: It is a nothing game for the Panthers, who wind up a dismal 2013-14 campaign but the game means quite a bit to the Blue Jackets who could finish as high as sixth in the Eastern Conference with a win and Philadelphia and Detroit losses. It will be interesting to see if Luongo is in full spoiler mode Saturday night. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:30 am
  • Frederik Andersen could be ready soon
    Frederik Andersen (head) practiced Friday and is getting closer to returning to the lineup.

    Advice: "I think I'm getting closer," he said. "It's just a matter of how I feel on the ice positioning-wise and how I see the puck too. That's coming back pretty good." Andersen got hit in the mask with a slap shot from Nashville's Shea Weber on April 4 and he hasn't been able to play since. He could be ready to play as soon as Saturday, which would give the Ducks three potentially healthy goaltenders on their roster. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:14 am
  • Hackett to start Saturday afternoon v Boston
    Matthew Hackett will start in goal against the Bruins Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: He really is the only choice as all three of the Sabres' other goals, Jhonas Enroth, Michal Neuvirth and Nathan Lieuwen are injured at the moment. That's not much of endorsement. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Head Coach Peter DeBoer has not yet announced whether Brodeur will get the start in the Devils' season finale against Boston on Sunday. If he doesn't, this could have been the legend's final start for New Jersey, as the 41 year old is contemplating his options for next season.
