  • Matt Murray (LBI) still isn't skating
    Matt Murray (lower body) hasn't resumed skating yet.

    Advice: Murray was last on the ice for the pregame warmups in Game 1 of the Penguins' first round series on April 12. Given that it's been nearly two weeks since Murray last skated, we don't expect him to be available anytime soon. 46 minutes ago
  • Chad Ruhwedel will be a game-time decision
    Chad Ruhwedel (upper body) took part in Monday's practice.

    Advice: Ruhwedel will be a game-time decision in Game 1 on Wednesday, per Penguins coach Mike Sullivan. He had two goals and 10 points in 34 regular season games. 49 minutes ago
  • Tom Pyatt (UBI) projected to play in Game 1
    Tom Pyatt (upper body) should be ready for Game 1 on Thursday, per Senators GM Pierre Dorion.

    Advice: Pyatt was hurt in Game 4 of Ottawa's first round series against Boston. He has resumed skating though. Today, 12:58 pm

  • Hagelin skates, but doesn't practice Monday
    Carl Hagelin (lower body) didn't practice with the Penguins on Monday, but he did skate on his own.

    Advice: Hagelin was also on the ice on Sunday. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said that they're "hopeful that we're going to have him," but for now it'd be best to continue to regard Hagelin as day-to-day. Today, 12:14 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • A. Shaw experiencing concussion-like symptoms
    Andrew Shaw has been dealing with concussion-like symptoms.

    Advice: Shaw missed Game 6 on Saturday as a result. He'll have the summer to recover now, but concussions are unpredictable. It's entirely possible that he'll be symptom free in the near future and this won't even end up impacting his summer preparations, but there's also a chance that this will even linger into the 2017-18 campaign. Today, 12:01 pm
  • Carey Price wants to sign extension with Habs
    Carey Price would like to sign an extension with the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: "I want to stay here," Price said. "I know we'll figure out a way to make all the pieces fit and bring a championship here." Price is entering the final season of his six-year, $39 million contract, so he can sign an extension this summer. Locking Price up will be critical for Montreal as Price is the center of the team after winning the Vezina Trophy in 2015 and being a finalist again this season. The question is how big Price's cap hit will be. Henrik Lundqvist currently has the biggest cap hit of any goaltender at $8.5 million annually and Price can likely command more than that if he chooses to. Today, 11:11 am
  • Andrei Markov hopes to stay with Montreal
    Andrei Markov would like to finish his career with the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Markov has completed his three-year, $17.25 million contract. He's 38 years old, but he still was an offensive contributor in 2016-17 with six goals and 36 points in 62 games. He also had a plus-18 rating and logged 21:50 minutes per contest. He's spent his entire 990 game career with Montreal and we imagine that the two sides will be able to find a common ground during their contract talks. Today, 11:07 am
  • Islanders ink defenseman Dennis Seidenberg
    Dennis Seidenberg has agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million extension with the New York Islanders.

    Advice: That's a raise on the $1 million he earned from New York in 2016-17 after being bought out by the Boston Bruins. He had five goals and 22 points in 73 games while averaging 19:26 minutes per contest with the Islanders this season. Today, 11:04 am
  • Matt Murray (LBI) misses Monday's practice
    Matt Murray (lower body) didn't participate in Monday's practice.

    Advice: Unless Murray skated on his own, it's been almost two weeks since he was last on the ice. After excelling in the first round, the Penguins would probably stick with Marc-Andre Fleury at this point even if Murray was healthy, but as long as Murray's sidelined, the Penguins don't have a good Plan B available if Fleury struggles or suffers an injury. Today, 10:15 am
  • Alexander Radulov will skip 2017 Worlds
    Alexander Radulov has decided against playing for Team Russia in the 2017 World Championships.

    Advice: Radulov is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, so it makes sense for him to avoid the tournament. Had he gone and gotten injured then that would significantly impact his earning potential. Radulov figures to secure a sizable contract after scoring 18 goals and 54 points in 76 games with Montreal in 2016-17. Today, 9:41 am
  • Marcus Kruger will play in 2017 Worlds
    Marcus Kruger has decided to play for Team Sweden in the 2017 World Championships.

    Advice: Kruger is taking part in the tournament because Chicago was swept by Nashville in the first round. He had five goals and 17 points in 70 regular season games. Today, 9:09 am
  • C. MacArthur gets rewarded for perseverance
    For Clarke MacArthur, scoring the series-winning overtime winner has to be particularly sweet.

    Advice: It's every player's dream, but MacArthur has to have a particular appreciation for just how special it is after missing almost all of the last two seasons with post-concussion syndrome. MacArthur returned on April 4 and went on to participate in every game of the first round. "It’s just awesome to be back playing and to end the game like that," said MacArthur. "You miss most of the last two years, and you keep working on it, and it’s just great to get that opportunity and be able to put away like that." Today, 7:58 am
  • D. Larkin takes lessons from sophomore slump
    Dylan Larkin is looking to learn from his sophomore slump.

    Advice: Larkin had 45 points in his rookie campaign, but he regressed in 2016-17 with 17 goals and 32 points in 80 contests. "This game's a lot mental," Larkin said. "Do a lot of mental preparation this summer as well as physical preparation. Be ready to go from the first day. I think this year I kind of came in and thought it was going to be a little bit easy, I kind of had it figured out, but clearly didn't, so need to be better in all areas and I guess put it on my shoulders to be ready from Day 1." There's a good chance that he'll bounce back in his third season and he has the potential to put up significantly better offensive numbers than what we saw out of him as a rookie. Today, 7:34 am
  • Marian Hossa won't play in 2017 Worlds
    Marian Hossa won't join Team Slovakia for the 2017 World Championships.

    Advice: "Let the young guys play," Hossa said. He's 38 years old now, so it's not too surprising that he wouldn't opt to extend his season further. He had 26 goals and 45 points in 73 regular season contests. Today, 7:29 am
  • Conor Sheary goalless in the playoffs
    Conor Sheary did not score in the first round.

    Advice: Sheary started the series on the top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel but was on the third line by the end of Game 5. He ended up with two assists in five games and is now on the third unit with Scott Wilson and Nick Bonino. "It’s tough," Sheary said. "This is kind of part of the learning process for myself. I think you’ve got to learn when you’re not scoring, how to come out of that and just play your game, stick to your instincts. I think you get away from that a little bit when you’re worried about it." Sheary finished the season with 23 goals, tied for third on the Penguins. He is capable of plenty more and should break loose sooner rather than later. Today, 7:05 am
  • Connor Brickley scores the OT winner
    Connor Brickley scored the overtime winner as Charlotte defeated the Chicago Wolves 4-3 in AHL playoff action.

    Advice: The Hurricanes farm club is up 2-1 in the best of five series and have a chance to move on to the next round with a victory on Tuesday. Brickley was a second round pick of the Florida Panthers in 2010 and was dealt to Carolina on October 11 in exchange for Brody Sutter. He had only 15 goals and 26 points in 69 games this season but had four game winners in March. Today, 5:07 am
  • Sens' Clarke MacArthur eliminates BOS in OT
    Clarke MacArthur netted the overtime winner in Ottawa's 3-2 victory against Boston in Game 6 Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: With that, Ottawa has eliminated Boston and advanced to the second round where the Senators will face the New York Rangers. Bobby Ryan scored a goal and registered an assist for Ottawa, giving him seven points in six postseason contests. Kyle Turris netted Ottawa's other goal on Sunday. Derick Brassard assisted on two of the Senators' three markers. He had two goals and eight points in the first round. Yesterday, 3:31 pm
  • Chad Ruhwedel (UBI) resumes practicing
    Chad Ruhwedel (upper body) joined the Penguins for Sunday's practice.

    Advice: Ruhwedel wasn't available for the first round of the playoffs. "Just practice and trying to get in the game shape again, and hopefully get to do some more battle drills coming up in the near future," Ruhwedel reported. It remains to be seen if he'll be available for Game 1 of the second round. Yesterday, 2:05 pm
  • Carl Hagelin skating infrequently
    Carl Hagelin (lower body) has been skating but not regularly of late.

    Advice: Hagelin has been out of action since March 10 and the Penguins miss his presence and speed in the lineup during the playoffs. He had only six goals and 22 points in 61 games this season but was a big part of the Penguins run to the Stanley Cup last year. Consider him day-to-day. Yesterday, 7:38 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Chad Ruhwedel skates on his own
    Chad Ruhwedel skated on his own Saturday as he has an upper body injury.

    Advice: Ruhwedel has missed the opening series of the playoffs but had he been healthy he likely would have been a healthy scratch. The defenseman is a depth player but you need those players in the playoffs as there are always plenty of injuries. Yesterday, 7:35 am
  • Matt Murray still unable to skate for Pens
    Matt Murray has not been on the ice since he suffered a lower body injury prior to Game 1 of the first round on April 12.

    Advice: That does not bode well for Murray and it looks as if Marc-Andre Fleury will be between the pipes for Game 1 of the second round later this week. There is no timetable at this time for the return of Murray to the Penguins lineup. Yesterday, 7:30 am
  • Alexander Radulov had strong playoff showing
    Alexander Radulov registered an assist in Montreal's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 6 on Saturday.

    Advice: That ended the Canadiens' playoff run, but Radulov looked good in the series with two goals and seven points in six games. This season marked his return to the NHL for the first time since his brief stint with the Predators in 2012. Unlike his 2012 return attempt, his 2016-17 campaign was a success. He only signed a one-year deal with Montreal, so he's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and he's likely to command a long-term contract. Yesterday, 7:16 am
  • Montreal can re-sign Price this summer
    The Montreal Canadiens can sign Carey Price to an extension this summer.

    Advice: Price has one season left on his six-year, $39 million contract. He'll likely get a significant raise after winning the Vezina Trophy in 2015 and being a finalist for the award again this season. After Montreal's first round exit at the hands of the New York Rangers there might be some significant changes this summer, but re-signing Price will still likely be a key item on Montreal's agenda. Price did all he could to keep the Canadiens alive in the first round as he posted a 1.86 GAA and .933 save percentage in six playoff starts. Yesterday, 7:13 am
  • Carey Price saves 20 shots in Game 6 loss
    Carey Price stopped 20 of 22 shots in Montreal's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 6 on Saturday.

    Advice: Price had a strong series, but Henrik Lundqvist ultimately won the tight goaltending duel and Montreal has been eliminated from the playoffs as a result. Price has fallen to 25-31 in 60 career playoff games. Saturday, 7:58 pm
  • Andrew Shaw (UBI) won't play in Game 6
    Andrew Shaw (upper body) won't play in Game 6 against the Rangers on Saturday.

    Advice: It's unclear when Shaw suffered the injury, but there was a moment in Game 5 where he was slammed into the boards by Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi. He didn't leave the game, but the contact was pretty severe. Brian Flynn will take Shaw's spot in the lineup. Saturday, 9:19 am
  • Andrew Shaw (UBI) not taking part in practice
    Andrew Shaw (upper body) isn't taking part in Saturday's morning skate.

    Advice: It doesn't necessarily mean he won't play in Game 6 at Madison Square Garden tonight, but it definitely isn't good news. Brian Flynn took his spot on the third line between Alex Galchenyuk and Paul Byron. We'll provide an update on Shaw's status as soon as the Canadiens provide one. The Canadiens are facing elimination tonight. Saturday, 8:51 am
  • Andrew Shaw has no points in 2017 playoffs
    Andrew Shaw hasn't recorded a point in Montreal's first-round series against the Rangers.

    Advice: Shaw was acquired from Chicago at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft because of his grit and playoff experience, but that hasn't translated into offensive production this postseason. The Canadiens need to win Game 6 in New York on Saturday night if they want to keep the series going. Saturday, 7:17 am
  • Carey Price will face NYR in GM 6 on Saturday
    Carey Price is expected to get the start in Game 6 against the Rangers on Saturday night.

    Advice: The Canadiens will need a great effort from Price if they want to keep their season alive after tonight. Price has a 1.82 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage this postseason. Saturday, 7:04 am
  • Pens flip Sheary and Hornqvist
    The Penguins shuffled their lines in the final period of Thursday's series' winning game against the Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Connor Sheary played alongside Scott Wilson and Nick Bonino, while Patric Hornqvist was shifted to Sidney Crosby’s top unit alongside Jake Guentzel. This is certainly not a good thing for Sheary if these units remain intact for the next playoff series, and they may, given that Sheary has only one assist and a minus-3 rating in the postseason so far. Saturday, 5:39 am
  • Tom Pyatt (UBI) won't play in Game 5
    Tom Pyatt (upper body) will not be available for Game 5 on Friday.

    Advice: Pyatt sustained the injury during Game 4 and is regarded as day-to-day. Chris Kelly will draw into the lineup as a result. Friday, 10:08 am

  • Habs pushed to brink of elimination after OTL
    Carey Price allowed three goals on 36 shots in Thursday's 3-2 OT loss to the New York Rangers.

    Advice: The Canadiens had 1-0 and 2-1 leads in the game, but the Rangers fought back, forced overtime. In the extra frame, Mika Zibanejad buried the overtime winner by Price at the 14:22 mark of the period. Price and his team will now head back on the road for Game 6. Another loss will end their season. Price has a 2-3 record with a 1.82 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage. Thursday, 8:08 pm
  • Carey Price to start Game 5 on Thursday
    Carey Price will be between the pipes Thursday night versus the New York Rangers.

    Advice: Price has gone 2-2 in the opening round of the playoffs with a 1.65 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage. Thursday, 1:23 pm
  • Tom Pyatt injured in GM 4 win over Boston
    Tom Pyatt suffered an upper-body injury in Ottawa's Game 4 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Pyatt got smoked by Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller in the first period and never returned to the game. It's unclear if he'll be available for Game 5 on Friday night, so we'll consider him day-to-day for now. Ottawa leads the best-of-seven series 3-1. You can watch the hit by clicking the video below. Wednesday, 7:51 pm

  • Carey Price gives up 2 goals in GM 4 loss
    Carey Price allowed two goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

    Advice: Price can't be faulted on either goal, as both Jesper Fast and Rick Nash scored from in close. It's the third time in four games that Price allows two goals or less. He has a 2-2 record with a 1.65 goals-against-average and a .942 save percentage. Game 5 will go in Montreal on Thursday night with the series tied 2-2. Tuesday, 7:30 pm
  • Carey Price will start Tuesday in Game 4
    Carey Price will start Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.

    Advice: After losing the first game of the series, Price and the Canadiens have won two in a row versus the Rangeers. The Montreal netminder has a 1.53 goals-against average and a .944 save percentage in the playoffs. Tuesday, 11:08 am
  • Carey Price, Canadiens take Game 3
    Carey Price was up for the task in Game 3 on Sunday, making 20 stops on 21 shots in the Habs' 3-1 victory.

    Advice: Price improves to 2-1 in the playoffs with a 1.53 goals against average and .944 save percentage. The 29-year-old outplayed Henrik Lundqvist to grab the series edge heading into Game 4 on Tuesday. Apr 16, 7:42 pm
  • Alexander Radulov scores, adds assist in win
    Alexander Radulov continued right where he left off in Game 2 with a goal and an assist on Sunday to lift the Habs to a 3-1 win.

    Advice: Radulov, who now has two goals and five points in three playoff games, helped the Habs gain a 3-0 advantage at Madison Square Garden and eventually earn a 2-1 lead in the first round series. Radulov has 17 points in 20 career playoff games. Apr 16, 7:07 pm
  • Matt Murray (LBI) won't play in Game 3
    Matt Murray (lower body) isn't projected to dress in Game 3 on Sunday.

    Advice: Tristan Jarry will serve as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup as a result. Murray hasn't played yet in the 2017 postseason due to the injury. Fleury was superb in the first two games of the Penguins' first round series against Columbus, so he might have started again on Sunday even if Murray was an option. Apr 16, 2:55 pm
  • MacArthur scores 1st goal since 2015
    Clarke MacArthur scored his first goal since April 19, 2015 in Saturday afternoon's 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins.

    Advice: That's two years for those keeping score. MacArthur's battles with post-concussion syndrome are well known. It's a testament to his dedication that he is even playing hockey again. Needless to say, the Ottawa crowd went wild when MacArthur bulged the twine. Apr 16, 7:29 am
  • Price to start v Rangers in Game 3 Sunday
    It should come as no surprise that Carey Price will likely get the start in goal for Game 3 Sunday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Price is 1-1 with a .941 save percentage and a 1.77 goals-against average in the playoffs thus far. Apr 16, 6:57 am
  • Alex Radulov scores OT winner vs. NYR in GM 2
    Alexander Radulov scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 4-3 OT win over the New York Rangers.

    Advice: The Canadiens found themselves down 3-2 late in the third period, but Tomas Plekanec was able to tie the game with just 17 seconds remaining (Radulov picked up the primary assist on the goal). In the extra frame, Radulov went to the net and poked the puck by Henrik Lundqvist to give Montreal the win. Radulov also registered an assist on Jeff Petry's goal in the first period. The Russian forward finished the game with three points, a plus-2 rating, four penalty minutes and six shots on goal in 23:20 of ice time. The series will now head to New York tied 1-1. Game 3 will be played on Sunday night. Apr 14, 8:01 pm
