Player Notes

  • Set to start Game 4
    Bobrovsky will guard the road net in Game 4 against Edmonton on Saturday, per Steve Goldstein of Bally Sports Florida.

    Advice: Bobrovsky has stopped 151 of 160 shots during his six-game winning streak. If he wins again Saturday, the Panthers will hoist the Stanley Cup, and he could earn the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. Bobrovsky has a 15-5 record this postseason with a 2.07 GAA and a .916 save percentage through 20 outings. Rotowire.com 51 minutes ago
  • Stumbles in second period
    Skinner allowed four goals on 23 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers in Game 3.

    Advice: Skinner brought some of his trouble on himself, as one of the Panthers' goals in the second period came from his own turnover. Florida scored three times in a span of 6:19 in the middle frame, and the Oilers' comeback fell short, leaving Skinner with a third straight loss. He's 11-8 with a 2.59 GAA and an .893 save percentage through 19 playoff contests. The Oilers will face a herculean task to try to come back from a 3-0 deficit in the Stanley Cup Finals, but there's been no talk of Calvin Pickard getting a start, so it seems head coach Kris Knoblauch will likely ride with Skinner to the end.

  • Inks one-year deal
    Ellis agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with St. Louis on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ellis split his time between the AHL and ECHL this season, logging 16 games for AHL Springfield in which he posted a 7-9-0 record and .924 save percentage while also going 12-5-2 for ECHL Orlando. Selected by the Blues in the third round of the 2019 NHL Draft, the Nova Scotia native shouldn't be expected to make his NHL debut anytime soon but could push for a more prominent role with the AHL Thunderbirds.

  • Returning to Swedish club
    Alnefelt inked a three-year contract with former club HV71 (Sweden) on Tuesday.

    Advice: Alnefelt is expected to be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the Lightning could retain his NHL rights by giving him a qualifying offer. Having said that, the fact that the backstop signed a three-year deal would certainly seem to indicate he won't be returning to North America. With AHL Syracuse this past season, the 23-year-old Swede went 14-8-4 with a 2.76 GAA and an .893 save percentage. Alnefelt made one appearance for the Bolts back in 2021-22, and that seems likely to be his only NHL outing for his professional career. Rotowire.com Tuesday, 6:14 am
