Player Notes

  • Extends point streak to five games
    Marchessault found the back of the net in a 6-0 victory over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Marchessault added to the Stars' misery by scoring midway through the second period to push Vegas' lead to 4-0. It was his ninth goal and 17th point in 17 playoff contests this year. Marchessault will take his five-game point streak into the Stanley Cup Finals versus Florida, which is set to begin Saturday. Monday, 8:22 pm
  • Leads Vegas with three points
    Karlsson scored two goals and registered an assist in Vegas' 6-0 victory over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Karlsson went through a bit of a quiet patch from May 21-27 in which he was limited to one point (a goal) over four contests, but that mini-slump is clearly behind him. He's up to 10 goals and 14 points in 17 playoff outings this year. His first marker Monday, which gave Vegas a 2-0 edge midway through the first period, was also his first power-play goal of the postseason. Monday, 8:19 pm
  • Helps Vegas take Game 6
    Carrier supplied a goal and an assist in Vegas' 6-0 victory over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Carrier found the back of the net early in the first period, and Vegas kept piling on from there. This was a rare showing from the 28-year-old, who has just two goals and four points in 13 playoff outings this year. His low offensive output isn't surprising though, given that Carrier serves primarily in a fourth-line role. Instead, he's more noteworthy for his physical contributions and has been credited with 39 hits in the postseason. Monday, 8:08 pm
  • Gets two assists Monday
    Smith registered two assists in Vegas' 6-0 victory over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Smith was quiet offensively over the first five contests of the Western Conference Finals, registering just one point (an assist) in that span. That's in contrast to his two goals and eight points in his first 11 playoff appearances this year. Smith has been serving in a top-six capacity and is on the second power-play unit, which is likely to continue to be his role when Vegas faces Florida in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday. Monday, 7:56 pm
  • Won't play Monday
    Dadonov (lower body) won't play Monday in Game 6 against Vegas, Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest reports.

    Advice: Dadonov will sit out his third straight contest. He has produced four goals, 10 points, 29 shots on net and 18 hits in 16 games this postseason. Dallas hasn't determined yet who Jamie Benn (suspension) will replace in the lineup for Monday's must-win matchup. Monday, 8:40 am
  • Finishes serving suspension
    Benn is eligible to play in Game 6 against the Golden Knights on Monday after completing his two-game suspension for cross-checking Vegas' Mark Stone on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dallas won two consecutive contests without Benn in the lineup. He has racked up eight assists, 11 points, 36 shots on net, 30 hits and 51 PIM in 16 games this postseason. Benn's return could make Fredrik Olofsson a healthy scratch for Monday's must-win matchup. Sunday, 7:21 am

  • Good to go
    Luostarinen (undisclosed) will be available for the next round of the playoffs, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Advice: Luostarinen didn't play in the third period of Wednesday's series-clinching win against Carolina in Game 4 following a shot block. He has accounted for five points, 14 shots on goal and 37 hits over 16 contests this postseason. Sunday, 7:10 am
  • Pots goal in loss
    Stephenson scored a goal on three shots and added two hits in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Stars in Game 5.

    Advice: Stephenson put the Golden Knights ahead 2-1 early in the second period, but that was the extent of their offense for the game. He's picked up two goals and two helpers over five games versus the Stars in the Western Conference Finals. Stephenson is up to 14 points, 23 shots, 22 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 16 playoff contests overall. Saturday, 8:50 pm
  • Opens scoring Saturday
    Barbashev scored a goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Stars in Game 5.

    Advice: Barbashev was strong on a rush to the net, burying the opening tally at 13:36 of the first period. The 27-year-old has two goals and three helpers in this round, running up his total for the postseason to 14 points in 16 appearances. The veteran forward has added 47 hits, 23 shots on net and a plus-11 rating. Saturday, 8:46 pm
