Player Notes

  • Kris Letang nets a goal in Game 4
    Kris Letang found the back of the net in Pittsburgh's 5-0 win over Philadelphia in Game 4 on Wednesday.

    Advice: That gives Letang a goal and four points in four playoff games. He wasn't able to play at all in the 2017 playoffs, but he's been a big contributor already in 2018. In addition to his goal, Letang also logged 28:40 minutes of ice time Wednesday night. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:31 am
  • Rangers want next coach to develop youngsters
    The Rangers are looking for their next head coach to be someone who will be able to develop their young players.

    Advice: The Rangers have made some efforts to rebuild and it will be the next bench bosses job to make the most out of the young talent they have and will acquire through that process. "We’re looking for someone who can develop players and develop a team," executive chairman Jim Dolan said. "We want someone who is going to be able to work with young players — all of our players, really — so that they and we improve from one stage of the season to the next and we’re better at the end of the year than at the beginning." Dolan added that he felt former head coach Alain Vigneault was good for a developed team. It seems though that the Rangers want something different going forward and given the roster they're likely to dress, that makes sense. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:04 am
  • Andrew Hammond stops 8 shots in relief
    Andrew Hammond turned aside all eight shots he faced during Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

    Advice: Hammond came into the game at the start of the third period after starter Jonathan Bernier was ruled out because of a lower-body injury. If Bernier can't go in Game 5 on Friday, the Avs would have to turn to Hammond, who played in just one NHL game during the regular season. Colorado is down 3-1 in this best-of-seven series, so one more loss would eliminate them from the playoffs. They might have to turn to Hammond in a do-or-die game, which is a scary thought.
