• Scores lone goal in loss
    Tarasenko scored a goal on three shots and added two hits in Saturday's 8-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 4.

    Advice: Tarasenko's goal in the first period pulled the Panthers within one, but they were unable to build on it as the Oilers ran away with the game. The winger has three goals and an assist over his last five contests, a rare run of consistency for him this postseason. Overall, he's at nine points, 40 shots, 41 hits and a plus-5 rating through 21 playoff outings. Rotowire.com Saturday, 11:23 pm
  • Dishes pair of helpers
    Hyman notched two assists, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Advice: Hyman helped out on second-period tallies by Connor McDavid and Darnell Nurse. The 32-year-old Hyman didn't have a point during the Stanley Cup Finals, as the Panthers had neutralized the Oilers' top players in the first three contests. However, they were all much better in Saturday's blowout victory. Hyman is up to 20 points, 84 shots on net, 47 hits and a plus-9 rating over 22 playoff outings. If the Oilers can gain traction on the power play, he should see an uptick in offense. Rotowire.com Saturday, 11:10 pm
  • Tallies in Game 3 loss
    Foegele scored a goal on two shots and went minus-2 in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers in Game 3.

    Advice: Foegele cashed in on a breakaway in the second period for the Oilers' first goal. After getting ejected for a knee-on-knee hit in Game 2, Foegele was able to net his second tally of the postseason Thursday. The winger has just four points with 33 hits, 27 shots on net, 23 PIM and a minus-10 rating over 18 playoff appearances. Rotowire.com Thursday, 11:45 pm
  • Chips in with assist

    Advice: Rodrigues has three goals and two assists during his active four-game point streak. The 30-year-old continues to see even-strength usage on the top line, which has helped him click on offense at just the right time for the Panthers. He's up to 12 points, 37 shots, 49 hits and a plus-4 rating through 20 playoff contests. Rotowire.com Thursday, 11:33 pm
     
  • Contributes helper in win
    Tkachuk notched an assist, two shots on goal, two hits, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3.

    Advice: Tkachuk ended his four-game point drought by setting up Sam Bennett's goal in the second period. It's been eight games since Tkachuk has scored a goal of his own, but he's continued to provide a physical impact even with the lack of offense. He's produced five goals, 15 assists, 73 shots on net, 55 hits, 23 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 20 playoff appearances. Rotowire.com Thursday, 11:26 pm

  • One of each in win
    Reinhart scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3.

    Advice: Reinhart tipped home a Gustav Forsling shot to open the scoring late in the first period. In the second, Reinhart added a helper on Aleksander Barkov's goal, which ended up being the game-winner. This was Reinhart's first goal in five games, and he's now at nine tallies, 15 points, 70 shots on net, 47 hits and a plus-3 rating through 20 playoff contests. Rotowire.com Thursday, 11:13 pm
     
  • Agrees to one-year deal
    Kakko signed a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Rangers on Thursday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Kakko was set to become a restricted free agent in July after completing his two-year, $4.2 million contract. He struggled in 2023-24, recording just 13 goals and 19 points across 61 regular-season contests after setting career highs with 18 goals and 40 points in 82 regular-season outings in 2022-23. The 23-year-old can't be counted out, but he certainly hasn't lived up to his potential after being selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft. Look for him to open next season as a part of the Rangers' middle six. Rotowire.com Thursday, 12:08 pm
     
  • Ejected from Game 2
    Foegele was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct in Game 2 versus the Panthers on Monday.

    Advice: Foegele was dismissed from the game due to his knee-on-knee hit against Eetu Luostarinen, who did eventually return to the game. For his part, the 28-year-old Foegele was limited to just 1:54 of ice time due to his ejection, which extended his 16-game goal drought. Since he was given a game misconduct, it seems unlikely the winger will receive any additional discipline, and he should be an option for Game 3 on Thursday. Rotowire.com Tuesday, 6:49 am
