  • Drake Caggiula exits Game 2 with injury
    Drake Caggiula exited Friday's game against Anaheim in the second period and did not return.

    Advice: Caggiula entered the Ducks' zone with speed and created a solid scoring chance for his team, but after his shot was stopped by Anaheim's John Gibson, Caggiula lost his footing and crashed into the boards awkwardly. He was able to get up on his own, but he went straight to the locker room. Caggiula came back out and tried to skate prior to the start of the third period, but he went straight back to the room and never returned. We'll consider him day-to-day for now. It's unclear if he'll be able to play in Game 3 on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Ducks trail Oilers 0-2 after dropping GM 2
    John Gibson allowed two goals on 23 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: The Ducks found themselves 2-0 in the second period, and although a Jakob Silfverberg power play goal cut the lead in half, they just couldn't find a way to beat Cam Talbot a second time. Anaheim now has to go to Edmonton trailing 2-0 in the best-of-seven series. A loss on Sunday would really turn the heat up on the Ducks. Gibson owns a 3-2 record with a 2.76 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this postseason. He isn't the reason they're down by two games in the series, but it's clear that Gibson is being outplayed by Talbot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Cam Talbot fantastic in Game 2 win over Ducks
    Cam Talbot was spectacular in Friday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Talbot was clearly the best Oiler on the ice tonight, as he turned aside 39 of 40 shots in the victory. The only goal he allowed came while his team was shorthanded (Jakob Silfverberg beat him with a perfect wrist shot). With the Ducks continuously buzzing in the third period, Talbot was able to come up with huge saves to keep his team ahead (he was also bailed out by the post on two occasions in the final period). Talbot owns a 6-2 record with a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .934 save percentage. It's the fourth time in eight games that Talbot has given up one goal or less in an outing. The Oilers are now heading back home with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 3 takes place on Sunday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Jakob Silfverberg scores in GM 2 loss to EDM
    Jakob Silfverberg scored a power play goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: With Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse in the box for high-sticking, Silverberg beat Cam Talbot with a perfect wrist shot to cut the deficit in half. The Ducks dominated, especially in the third period, but they couldn't find a way to beat Talbot (they even hit the post twice in the final frame). Silfverberg now has four goals and one assist in six games during the postseason. Anaheim is in a big hole, as they're heading to Edmonton trailing 2-0 in the series. Game 3 will be played on Sunday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Patrick Maroon scores GWG in GM 2 win vs ANA
    Patrick Maroon scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Not many people predicted the Oilers would take the first two games of the series in Anaheim, but that's exactly what they've done. With Edmonton on the power play in second period, Jordan Eberle's pass went off Maroon's skate before hitting Ducks goalie John Gibson and falling into the net. The power play goal gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead at the time, and they never looked back. Maroon finished the game with a plus-1 rating, four shots on goal and two hits in 17:16 of ice time. He's up to two goals and two assists in eight games during the postseason. The Oilers are now headed back home with a strong grip on the series. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Jori Lehtera scores big goal in GM 2 victory
    Jori Lehtera found the back of the net in Friday's 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators.

    Advice: The Blues found themselves down 2-1 in the third period, but Lehtera scored a huge goal at the 7:39 mark to tie the game. Less than nine minutes after Lehtera made it 2-2, teammate Vladimir Tarasenko scored his second of the game to give St. Louis the lead and they never looked back. Since being a healthy scratch in Games 2, 3 and 4 of St. Louis' first-round series against Minnesota, Lehtera has responded by picking up three points in his last three games. The best-of-seven series is now tied 1-1. Game 3 will be played in Nashville on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Ryan Ellis picks up 1G, 1A in GM 2 loss
    Ryan Ellis scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: Ellis helped set up James Neal's goal in the first period to give Nashville a 1-0 lead. The Preds defenseman scored one of his own early in the third period to make it 2-1 for his team. Unfortunately for the Preds, they were unable to close out the game, as they allowed goals to Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko in the third frame. Ellis is up to two goals and five assists in six games this postseason. Those are very impressive numbers. The best-of-seven series is now tied at one. Game 3 will be played in Nashville on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Vernon Fiddler ejected for knee-on-knee hit
    Vernon Fiddler was ejected from Game 2 against St. Louis, after delivering a knee-on-knee hit on Blues defenseman Colton Parayko.

    Advice: The incident occurred late in the first period. Parayko was trying to make a play from deep in his own end when Fiddler came in and clipped him with his knee. Fiddler was given five minutes for kneeing and a game misconduct. To make matters worse for Fiddler, Vladimir Tarasenko scored on the ensuing power play to tie the game at one. You can watch the incident by clicking the link below. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 pm

  • P.A. Parenteau scratched in Game 2 vs STL
    P.A. Parenteau will be a healthy scratch in Game 2 against St. Louis.

    Advice: Parenteau played in Game 1, but he'll sit for Miikka Salomaki tonight. The veteran forward has no points in three games this postseason. Anthony Bitetto, Brad Hunt and Harry Zolnierczyk will also be scratched tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:17 pm
  • Craig Smith (LBI) won't play in GM 2 vs STL
    Craig Smith (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Game 2 against St. Louis.

    Advice: The injury forced Smith to miss Game 4 of the opening-round series against the Blackhawks and Game 1 against St. Louis. Smith has one assist in three games this postseason. Smith is considered day-to-day at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:06 pm

  • Hurricanes acquire Scott Darling from Hawks
    The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Scott Darling from the Carolina Hurricanes for a third-round pick in 2017.

    Advice: Darling is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, so the Hurricanes will look to re-sign him to a new deal before that point. Darling has been the backup to Corey Crawford over the last three seasons, but he's done well whenever he's been asked to shoulder the load. "We could count on Scott in any situation as he was always reliable," GM Stan Bowman said in a release. "We appreciate his contributions to the Blackhawks organization -- including a Stanley Cup Championship team -- and we wish him well as he continues his career in Carolina." The 28-year-old had an 18-5-5 record with a 2.38 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage in 2016-17. Even though Cam Ward and Eddie Lack are still in Carolina, Darling will likely get a chance to be the starter if he re-signs with them. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:52 pm
  • John Gibson will face Oilers in GM 2 on FRI

    Advice: A determination still has to be made if he needs surgery. He skated in all six postseason games against Ottawa in Round 1 of the playoffs. Miller contributed 13 points in 58 appearances during the regular season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:19 am
  • Patrick Maroon records two assists Wednesday
    Patrick Maroon registered two assists in Edmonton's 5-3 win against Anaheim in Game 1 Wednesday night.

    Advice: Maroon was relatively quiet in the first round with a goal and no assists in six games. He was a significant secondary scorer for Edmonton during the regular season, so it's important to Edmonton that he starts chipping in offensively on a more often. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:55 am

The Oilers appeared to take the game over in the third period, as they got back-to-back goals in less than two minutes from Mark Letestu and Adam Larsson to give Edmonton a 3-1 lead. But that's when the Ducks woke up. Anaheim got two quick goals of their own from Patrick Eaves and Jakob Silfverberg to tie it up at three.

  • Vernon Fiddler gets the winner for the Preds
    Vernon Fiddler scored the winner as the Nashville Predators defeated the St. Louis Blues 4-3 in Game 1 Wednesday.

    Advice: Fiddler had only two goals and four points this season and missed the first round of the playoffs with an upper body injury but he was back in the lineup Wednesday for Game 1 and it paid off for the Predators.

  • Patric Hornqvist has extreme intensity
    The intensity level for Patric Hornqvist is extreme.

    Advice: The first time Tom Kuhnhackl was in the Pittsburgh dressing room, he heard a scream in Swedish and was actually scared. It came from Hornqvist who was revving himself up for the game. Hornqvist loves to yell at opposing players and officials on the bench and coach Mike Sullivan has to tell him to calm down five or six times per game. "I don’t ever want him to change," Sullivan said of Hornqvist. "That’s what makes him what he is. That’s what makes him the personality that helps this team become a more competitive team. I think that energy is contagious. I think his teammates get a kick out of it. I know his coaches do." He has two goals and an assist in five games thus far and is playing alongside Sidney Crosby at this time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:14 am

He posted a 2.38 GAA and .924 save percentage in 32 games this season. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and it's unlikely that he'll re-sign with Chicago given that the Blackhawks remain committed to starting goaltender Corey Crawford.

  • Sami Vatanen (UBI) is out for Game 4
    Sami Vatanen (upper body) won't return for Game 4 on Wednesday.

  • John Gibson will probably start on Wednesday
    John Gibson was the first goalie off the ice following the Wednesday morning skate.

    Advice: That suggests that Gibson will start, although indicators like that are a little less safe to bet on in the playoffs. Gibson has started in the first three playoff games, but the Ducks plans were thrown into question after he was chased out of Game 3. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:49 am
  • P. Maroon makes four SOG in loss to Sharks
    Patrick Maroon made four shots on goal against the Sharks Tuesday night, but none of them found the back of the net as the Oilers lost 7-0.

    Advice: Maroon spent seven minutes in the sin bin, but only two of them were for his own penalty. He served Leon Draisaitl five-minute major for spearing Chris Tierney in the groin and then drew his own penalty almost immediately after returning to the ice. This lack of discipline defined the Oilers game Tuesday night. In total, the Oilers had 28 minutes of penalty compared to the Sharks’ eight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:01 pm
  • Cam Talbot gets the hook in loss to Sharks
    After scoring back-to-back shutouts in games two and three of the first round of the playoffs, Cam Talbot got the hook 13 minutes into the second period when he gave up five goals in a 7-0 loss to the Sharks.

    Advice: Nothing went right for the Oilers Tuesday night. Certainly Talbot does not bear sole responsibility for the loss because he had no appreciable defensive help. The again, he was the goalie who allowed five shots to get past. This embarrassing defeat will galvanize Edmonton as they head home for game five. Laurent Brossoit gave up another two goals on only eight shots. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:49 pm
