Sissons eligible to play in Game 6
The NHL announced Friday the league will not suspend Nashville Predators center Colton Sissons for the match penalty assessed to him, and he will be allowed to play in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final. Sissons cross-checked Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta's face inside the final minute of the Predators' 6-0 loss in Game 5 on Thursday night in Pittsburgh. Sissons was given a match penalty, triggering an automatic review by the league.
Brassard to miss 4-5 months
Ottawa Senators forward Derick Brassard will undergo shoulder surgery that will likely sideline him for four to five months. Brassard has a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. The recovery timeframe could cause Brassard to miss the beginning of next season. Brassard, 29, tallied 39 points (14 goals, 25 assists) this season, his first with the Senators. He scored 141 goals and registered 382 points in 10 NHL seasons.
Hornqvist back for Game 1
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist will return to lineup for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night against the Nashville Predators after missing six games with an upper-body injury. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan made the announcement after the optional morning skate Monday, confirming that the 30-year-old Swede would be back and was 100 percent healthy. Hornqvist has not played since Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Ottawa Senators. He has seven points (four goals, three assists) in 13 playoff games.
Predators might get Fisher back for Final
The Nashville Predators got past the Anaheim Ducks without their top two centers, but they might have one of them back for the start of the Stanley Cup Final. Ryan Johansen has been lost for the season, but general manager David Poile said Wednesday he hopes captain Mike Fisher can practice on Thursday and added that there is "a real good chance" Fisher will be able to play in Game 1 of the Final. Fisher sustained what appeared to be a head injury in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final. He missed two games, but did take part in the celebration following Game 6.
Gibson exits with apparent injury
Anaheim Ducks backup goalie Jonathan Bernier replaced John Gibson at the start of the second period in Saturday's Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Nashville Predators, apparently due to an injury. Gibson wasn't on the bench later in the period, but the team made no immediate announcement about his status. He had stopped all 10 shots he faced in the contest before exiting. Coming into the contest, he was 9-5 with a 2.65 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in the postseason.
Johansen out for playoffs
Nashville Predators center Ryan Johansen will miss the remainder of the playoffs due to a left thigh injury sustained in Game 4 of the Western Conference final against the Anaheim Ducks. Johansen underwent emergency surgery Thursday night at Vanderbilt Medical Center after sustaining the injury in Nashville's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim. The 24-year-old is expected to recover in two to three months. Johansen has a team-leading 13 points in 14 playoffs games.
Hornqvist, Rust, Schultz ruled out
Pittsburgh Penguins forwards Patric Hornqvist and Bryan Rust and defenseman Justin Schultz were ruled out with upper-body injuries for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Wednesday night. The series is tied at one victory apiece after the Penguins posted a 1-0 win in Game 2 in Pittsburgh on Monday. Rust and Schultz were injured in that contest, while Hornqvist sat out the game. "They'll all be out for tonight, but they're day-to-day with upper-body injuries," coach Mike Sullivan said of the trio.
Crosby returns to practice
Sidney Crosby returned to work Friday, practicing with his Pittsburgh Penguins teammates barely four days removed from a frightening hit that left the him with a concussion, and his status for the rest of the playoffs uncertain.
While the two-time MVP declined to get into specifics whether he'll be available for Game 5 at Washington on Saturday, he's keeping his options open. "We'll see," Crosby said. "I don't want to rule it out. It's not really up to me. You relay how you feel and they kind of direct you from there."
Sidney Crosby has concussion
Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby was ruled out for the Penguins' next playoff game because of a concussion, the result of cross-check to the jaw from Washington defenseman Matt Niskanen on Monday in Game 3 of an Eastern Conference semifinals series. Niskanen, who received a five minute major and an ejection for the hit, will not be facing supplemental discipline.
Crosby leaves following hit to head
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby left Game 3 of his team's playoff series against Washington after taking a hit to the head from Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen. Crosby was on the ice in obvious pain for several minutes before exiting slowly under his own power. Niskanen was given a five-minute major penalty and a 10-minute game misconduct.
Hagelin a game-time decision
Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said Carl Hagelin will be a game-time decision to return for Game 2 against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night after being out since March 10 with a lower-body injury. The lightning-quick wing took part in a full-contact practice Friday and has progressed far enough in his recovery to be an option to play.
Fiala leaves on stretcher with leg injury
Nashville forward Kevin Fiala was taken off the ice on a stretcher after he hurt his left leg during Game 1 of the Predators' second-round series against St. Louis on Wednesday night. Fiala was hit by Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo and went hard into the boards behind the St. Louis net at 1:46 of the second period. The injury led to a 17-minute delay while Fiala received medical attention. Fiala was taken to a hospital for further evaluation. The team says he is "alert and in stable condition."
Werenski out for playoffs with face fracture
Columbus defenseman Zach Werenski will miss the rest of the postseason because of a broken cheekbone. The Blue Jackets announced the decision Monday, one day after the 19-year-old rookie took a puck to the face on a shot by Pittsburgh's Phil Kessel that opened a gash on his right cheek in the second period. He played a couple shifts in the third period with a full facemask, but his eye swelled shut and he had to sit out the rest of the game.
San Jose 17.4.17
Thornton returns to lineup
Joe Thornton is back in the lineup after missing the first two games of the playoffs with a left knee injury. The San Jose Sharks center had missed the past two weeks after injuring his knee in a regular-season game at Vancouver. The Sharks split the first two games of the series in Edmonton without Thornton.
Vatanen is late scratch for Game 2
Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen was a late scratch from Game 2 of Anaheim's first-round playoff series with the Calgary Flames. Korbinian Holzer made his NHL playoff debut Saturday night in place of Vatanen, who has an upper-body injury. The Ducks already are without All-Star defenseman Cam Fowler, who was injured last week on a knee-on-knee hit by Calgary captain Mark Giordano.
