  • Andrei Vasilevskiy stops 35 shots in GM 5 victory
    Andrei Vasilevskiy turned aside 35 shots in a 3-2 win over Colorado in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Friday. 

    Advice: The Avalanche came back from two one-goal deficits in the contest, but the Lightning got the victory thanks to a late third-period goal by Ondrej Palat. The play of Vasilevskiy was also a big part of Tampa Bay's victory. He has a 4-0 record with a 1.75 GAA and .945 SV% when facing elimination in the Stanley Cup Playoffs since 2020. Vasilevskiy will look to continue that success in Game 6 on Sunday. Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper makes 26 saves in Game 5 loss
    Darcy Kuemper stopped 26 of 29 shots in a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Friday. 

    Advice: Kuemper allowed the game winner to Lightning forward Ondrej Palat with just 6:22 left in the third period. It wasn't a particularly strong performance from the Avalanche netminder, as he didn't look good on the game winner nor on Jan Rutta's late in the first period. He rebounded in a big way on Wednesday in Game 4 and he will look for another bounce-back performance on Sunday. The Avalanche still hold a 3-2 series lead in the Cup Final. Yesterday, 8:42 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper will start Game 5 against Tampa Bay
    Darcy Kuemper will start in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Friday night. 

    Advice: Kuemper is coming off a 37-save performance in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over Tampa Bay. He has a 9-3 record this postseason with a 2.66 goals-against average and .898 save percentage. Colorado can lift the Stanley Cup with a win on Friday night. Yesterday, 4:43 pm
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy will start Game 5 of Cup Final
    Andrei Vasilevskiy will start Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Friday against Colorado. 

    Advice: Vasilevskiy is coming off a 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche on Wednesday when he stopped 34 shots. He has a 13-8 record this postseason with a 2.57 goals-against average and .920 save percentage. The Lightning need to win on Friday night to keep the team's dream of a three-peat alive. Yesterday, 4:42 pm
  • Red Wings re-sign goalie Victor Brattstrom
    Victor Brattstrom has inked a one-year contract extension with the Detroit Red Wings.

    Advice: Brattstrom's entry-level contract was set to expire, so he would have been a restricted free agent. He had a 3.32 GAA and .894 save percentage in 32 AHL games this season. Yesterday, 6:33 am
  • Felix Sandstrom inks two-year deal with Flyers
    Felix Sandstrom has signed a two-year, two-way/one-way contract with the Philadelphia Flyers. 

    Advice: The deal has an average annual value of $775,000. Sandstrom had a 0-4-1 record with a 3.23 goals-against average and .910 save percentage in five games with the Flyers during the 2021-22 season. The 25-year-old netminder spent most of the year in the AHL with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. He posted a mark of 16-18-5 at the minor-league level with a 2.89 GAA and .902 SV%. Sandstrom could be among the competitors for Philadelphia's backup goalie job at training camp in the fall. Thursday, 9:53 am
  • Darcy Kuemper bounces back in Game 4 of Cup Final
    Darcy Kuemper turned aside 37 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. 

    Advice: Kuemper stopped 16 of 17 shots in the first period. The Avalanche were able to battle back from two one-goal deficits in the contest to force overtime. Kuemper picked up the secondary assist on Nazem Kadri's game-winning goal, which came 12:02 into the extra period. Colorado outshot the Lightning 10-3 during overtime. It was an impressive bounce-back performance for the Avalanche goalie after he got the hook in Game 3 on Monday. Kuemper and his teammates have a 3-1 series lead and can win the Stanley Cup with one more win. The Avalanche will host the Lightning in Game 5 on Friday. Wednesday, 9:11 pm
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy superb in OT loss to Avalanche
    Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 34 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to Colorado in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday. 

    Advice: Vasilevskiy only faced four shots in the first period and the Lightning had a 1-0 lead going into the break. Colorado woke up in the second stanza with 17 shots, but Tampa Bay had a 2-1 lead going into the third. Andrew Cogliano tied the game early in the final frame of regulation and Nazem Kadri scored the overtime winner for the Avalanche. Tampa Bay will have to battle back from a 3-1 series deficit in order to win their third straight Stanley Cup. Game 5 will take place in Denver on Friday. Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper in line to play in Game 4 of SCF
    Darcy Kuemper is expected to be in the crease for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday against Tampa Bay. 

    Advice: Kuemper occupied the starter's crease during the morning skate, which puts him in line to start on Wednesday night. Coach Jared Bednar didn't confirm who the starting goaltender would be, but he said "possibly" when asked if Kuemper would play. "He's followed up good performances with better performances, and he's elevated his game when we've needed him to," Bednar added. Kuemper was pulled in Game 3 on Monday after he allowed five goals on 22 shots in 31:11 of playing time. He has a record of 8-3 this postseason with a 2.76 GAA and .892 SV%. Wednesday, 10:02 am
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy slated to start Game 4 of SCF
    Andrei Vasilevskiy is expected to start in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday against Colorado. 

    Advice: Vasilevskiy is coming off a 37-save performance in Monday's 6-2 victory over the Avalanche. It was a major improvement from his previous two matches during the Cup Final and he improved to 8-0 in his past eight outings on home ice. Vasilevskiy has a 13-7 record this postseason with a 2.57 GAA and .920 SV%. Wednesday, 9:58 am
  • Igor Shesterkin wins the Vezina Trophy
    Igor Shesterkin has won the Vezina Trophy.

    Advice: Shesterkin was the heavy favorite to claim this award. He had a 36-13-4 record, 2.07 GAA, and .935 save percentage in 53 contests in 2021-22. His GAA and save percentage were both the best in the NHL among qualified goaltenders. He was the first place choice of 29 of the 32 general managers in the voting, giving him 154 points. Jacob Markstrom finished second with 53 points and Juuse Saros finished third with 32. Tuesday, 4:16 pm
  • Kuemper draws some criticism from HC after loss
    Darcy Kuemper drew some criticism from his coach after Monday's 6-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Kuemper allowed five goals on 22 shots before being yanked halfway through the game. “I didn’t think he had a good night," Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said of Kuemper. He did add though, "Neither did our team so you win as a team and lose as a team and I group him in with everybody else." Kuemper has been something of a mixed bag in the 2022 playoffs. He does have an 8-3 record, but his 2.76 GAA and .892 save percentage in 13 starts certainly aren't great. The Avalanche do have a viable alternative in Pavel Francouz, but it seems premature to start him. Kuemper posted a 16-save shutout in Game 2 and the Avalanche are still leading the series 2-1, so he'll probably start again on Wednesday. Tuesday, 1:46 am
  • Georgiev could be playing elsewhere next season
    Alexandar Georgiev is eligible for restricted free agency this summer. 

    Advice: Georgiev is in line for a qualifying offer of $2.65 million and there is plenty of speculation that the Rangers won't be willing to provide that to him. He would become an unrestricted free agent if New York decides to walk away, but a trade for his negotiation rights would make much more sense for the team if they can make it happen. It's expected that the Rangers will look to get a less expensive netminder to be Igor Shesterkin's backup. Monday, 11:14 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper pulled in 6-2 loss to Lightning
    Darcy Kuemper gave up five goals on 22 shots before he was pulled in the Lightning's 6-2 win in Game 3.

    Advice: Kuemper did not look great in Game 3 after a 16-save shutout in Game 2 as he saw his record dip to 8-3. Kuemper was replaced by Pavel Francouz who stopped nine-of-10 shots the rest of the way as Kuemper was pulled at the 11:15 mark of the second period. He should get the start in Game 4 but if coach Jared Bednar has any reservations, then Francouz could get the call Wednesday. Monday, 8:34 pm
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy a star as Tampa Bay wins Game 3
    Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 37 shots as the Tampa Bay Lightning won Game 3 of the Stanley Cup by a 6-2 score.

    Advice: Vasilevskiy looked like his old self on Monday with a stellar effort in defeating Colorado to cut the deficit in the best-of-seven series to 2-1. He had given up 11 goals on 68 shots in the first two games in Denver but he was a stud back at home, stopping shot-after-shot. Vasilevskiy is 13-7 in the post-season and will look to even the series in Game 4 Wednesday. Monday, 8:13 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper set for Game 3 of Cup Final
    Darcy Kuemper is expected to start in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday against Tampa Bay. 

    Advice: Kuemper is off a 16-save shutout win over the Lightning in Game 2 on Saturday. Tampa Bay only  had 29 shot attempts in Game 2, while the Avalanche racked up 60 on Andrei Vasilevskiy. Possessing the puck and getting shots has been difficult for the Bolts so far in the series. Kuemper has a record of 8-2 this postseason with a 2.44 GAA and .901 SV% in 12 appearances. Monday, 11:34 am
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy to start Game 3 Monday night
    Andrei Vasilevskiy will be between the pipes on Monday night.

    Advice: Vasilevskiy was scorched for seven goals Saturday night and sat out practice on Monday morning but coach Jon Cooper said that his top goaltender will play. Vasilevskiy is 12-7 with a 2.60 GAA and a .918 save percentage but has given up 11 goals on 68 shots to Colorado in the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final. Monday, 8:32 am
  • Spencer Knight could be number one in Florida
    Spencer Knight could be the number one goaltender in Florida next season if the Panthers deal Sergei Bobrovsky as they are rumored to be doing.

    Advice: The Panthers, like so many teams in the NHL, are in a salary cap crisis, and dealing Bobrovsky's $10 million per year contract that still has four more years to go, will help solve a lot of problems, even if the team has to retain half the salary. If this happens, Knight will become the starter and it will considerably add to his fantasy value. He really came on at the end of the regular season, finishing his rookie campaign with a 19-9-3 record to go with a 2.79 GAA and a .908 save percentage. He was the rookie of the month for April with a 6-1-0 mark, a 2.16 GAA and a .925 save percentage. He should be selected as a top-10 goaltender if Bobrovsky is traded. Monday, 5:56 am
  • Darcy Kuemper shuts out Lightning as Avs go up 2-0
    Darcy Kuemper stopped all 17 attempts he faced in Saturday's 7-0 Game 2 Stanley Final Cup win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: About as low-key a shutout effort as you will see. Kuemper faced barely any real attrition during the contest and was working with a 3-0 lead less than 15 minutes into the first period. The shutout performance was his first in 12 starts this postseason. The Avalanche will try for a near-insurmountable 3-0 series lead when they head to Tampa Bay for Game 3 on Monday. Saturday, 7:58 pm
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy crushed for seven goals in GM 2
    Andrei Vasilevskiy surrendered seven goals on 31 attempts in Saturday's 7-0 Game 2 Stanley Cup Final loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: Wow. Games like this happen so rarely against Vasilevskiy that it almost feels a little unreal. The star netminder started the game under relentless pressure, ultimately caving for first-period goals by Valeri Nichushkin, Josh Manson and Andre Burakovsky over the first 15 minutes of ice time. The remainder of the contest proved little more charitable for Vasilevskiy, who was dinged for two more goals in the second period and then another two in the third period. The seven goals allowed were the most Vasilevskiy has given up in a Stanley Cup Final start. Indeed, prior to these playoffs, Vasilevskiy had given up more than three goals just once in the Final. He has been hit up for 11 total goals in just two games against Colorado. Now trailing 2-0 in the series, Vasilevskiy and the Lightning essentially face a must-win Game 3 on Monday. They will at least get that one at home. Saturday, 7:56 pm
  • Kuemper warming up ahead of Stanley Cup Final GM 2
    Darcy Kuemper will start Saturday's Game 2 Stanley Cup Final matchup with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: Kuemper was nicked for three goals in Game 1 before managing to hold off the Lightning in overtime. He had gone more than two weeks between games after sustaining an upper-body in the WCF. Kuemper and friends will be trying for a 2-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday evening. Saturday, 4:59 pm
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy set to work crease in Game 2
    Andrei Vasilevskiy will start Saturday's Game 2 Stanley Cup Final showdown with the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: Vasilevskiy surrendered four goals in Tampa Bay's Game 1 loss. Trying for the rebound performance on Saturday evening. The 27-year-old netminder is as good as they come in these kinds of situations, as we have seen throughout the Lightning's repeated runs to the Stanley Cup Final. Saturday, 4:53 pm
  • Leafs in talks with pending UFA Jack Campbell
    Toronto has been talking contract with pending unrestricted free agent Jack Campbell. 

    Advice: “We’ve had a couple of conversations,” said agent Kurt Overhardt. “I think it’s been reported that we haven’t exchanged numbers or anything like that. But we continue to have a good dialogue. There’s still so much time. With Jack, obviously he’s really interested in coming back and would be committed to do that. We continue to talk to the club, and we’ve got an open dialogue. Nothing to report other than that." Free agency is set to open on July 13 Friday, 3:03 pm
  • Shesterkin racks up 669 saves in the postseason
    Igor Shesterkin made 669 saves during the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs. 

    Advice: Shesterkin had most saves in a single postseason without making it to the Stanley Cup Final. The Rangers were defeated by Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference Final. Shesterkin finished New York's run with 2.59 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. Friday, 9:24 am
  • Uncertain Price future influenced Weber trade
    The uncertainty about Carey Price's situation influenced the Canadiens' decision to trade Shea Weber's contract.

    Advice: Weber is unfortunately not expected to ever play in the NHL again and will consequently spend the final four seasons of his contract on the long-term injured reserve list. While they could have lived with his $7,857,143 cap hit on the LTIR in a vacuum, one thing Montreal didn't want to risk is the possibility that both Weber and Price, with his $10.5 million cap hit, were on the LTIR. Because Price's health is uncertain, Montreal traded Weber to avoid a situation where they entered the season carrying nearly $20 million on the LTIR. Montreal consequently acquired Evgenii Dadonov from Vegas in exchange from Weber's contract. “Our hope is that Carey is able to play and if that’s the case, great,” Canadiens GM Kent Hughes said. “If that were the case, then trading Shea’s contract may not have been that important to us, but we didn’t want to take that risk and, listen, we’re getting a hockey player back that we think can help our team." Friday, 5:53 am
  • Darcy Kuemper stops 20 shots in Game 1 victory
    Darcy Kuemper turned aside 20 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over Tampa Bay in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. 

    Advice: Kuemper gave up two goals in 48 seconds to the Lightning in the second period, which tied the game at 3-3, but he didn't allow another one afterward. He only had to make five stops in the third period and one in overtime. Kuemper played for the first time on Wednesday since May 31 when he suffered an upper-body injury against Edmonton in Game 1 of the West Final. Wednesday, 9:20 pm
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy makes 34 saves in Game 1 defeat
    Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 34 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. 

    Advice: Vasilevskiy had never allowed three or more goals in the first period of a playoff game in his career going into the 2022 Stanley Cup Final opener. That changed on Wednesday night when he surrendered three goals on 15 shots to Colorado. The Lightning scored twice in the second stanza to force overtime, but Andre Burakovsky scored the game winner for the Avalanche early into the extra period. Vasilevskiy will look to bounce back in Game 2 on Saturday after his four-game win streak was snapped. Wednesday, 9:00 pm
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy will start Game 1 of Cup Final
    Andrei Vasilevskiy will start Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday against Colorado. 

    Advice: Vasilevskiy has won four straight outings, while allowing just one goal against in each of his past three contests. He has a 12-5 record this postseason with a 2.27 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. Wednesday, 4:38 pm
  • Carter Hutton announces his retirement
    Carter Hutton announced his retirement on Tuesday. 

    Advice: "Honestly, I’ve been preparing myself for hockey to be over in some aspect for a while,” Hutton told the Chronicle Journal. “The NHL has evolved into a young man’s league. The average age in the league is now in the early 20s, so I knew that this job wouldn’t be a lifelong one for me. Ultimately, I suffered an ankle injury in early 2021, which made the decision a lot easier for me. It restricted a lot of the mobility I needed to be as effective as I once was. This, compiled with a few other things, helped me decide on retirement." The 36-year-old netminder played in 235 career NHL contests over 10 season, while posting a mark of 94-90-27 with a 2.76 goals-against average and .908 save percentage. Wednesday, 12:05 pm
  • Daniil Tarasov agrees to three-year extension
    Daniil Tarasov has signed a three-year, $3.15 million contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Tarasov had a 0-2-0 record, 2.40 GAA, and .937 save percentage in four games with Columbus in 2021-22. At the AHL level, he posted a 3.06 GAA and .893 save percentage in 11 games. He was set to become a restricted free agent this summer after completing his entry-level contract. Wednesday, 7:59 am
  • Gibson denies report that he's open to a trade
    John Gibson denied the recent report that he's open to being traded.

    Advice: Gibson said he first learned of the report from his agent, Kurt Overhardt. “All of the rumors that I got in a call from Kurt yesterday are false because I haven’t had a conversation with anybody there,” Gibson said. “None of that is true.” When asked if he wanted to be traded from Anaheim, Gibson said that he wanted to remain a member of the Ducks. It's worth noting that Gibson doesn't have full control over the situation. He can provide the Ducks with a 10-team no-trade list, but if Anaheim did want to move him then they'd have the option to. Tuesday, 10:41 am
