5/3/2016 Artem Anisimov, Chi, C
Anisimov is on the mend after undergoing right wrist surgery.

Analysis: Team physician Dr. Michael Terry says Anisimov should be able to return to "full hockey activities" in six to eight weeks. He had the operation on Tuesday. The 27-year-old Anisimov, who was acquired in a trade with Columbus on June 30, had 20 goals and 22 assists in 77 games in his first season with the Blackhawks.
5/3/2016 Kris Letang, Pit, D
The NHL has suspended Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang for one game for an illegal hit on Washington's Marcus Johansson.

Analysis: Letang will miss Wednesday night's Game 4 after the NHL Department of Player Safety ruled Tuesday that Letang made ''significant head contact'' on Johansson well after the Capitals forward had released the puck during a sequence in the first period during Pittsburgh's 3-2 win in the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday night.
5/3/2016 Matt Murray, Pit, G
Murray made 47 stops Monday.

Analysis: Murray and the Pens have a 2-1 series lead.
5/2/2016 Artemi Panarin, Chi, LW
Edmonton forward Connor McDavid, Philadelphia defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere and Panarin are the finalists for the Calder Trophy for the NHL's top rookie.

Analysis: Panarin, 24, led all rookies with 30 goals and 47 assists in 80 games.
5/2/2016 Shayne Gostisbehere, Phi, D
Edmonton forward Connor McDavid, Gostisbehere and Chicago forward Artemi Panarin are the finalists for the Calder Trophy for the NHL's top rookie.

Analysis: Gostisbehere led rookie defensemen with 17 goals and 29 assists in 64 games. The third-round pick from the 2012 draft scored four overtime goals, matching a single-season record for a defenseman.
5/2/2016 Connor McDavid, Edm, C
McDavid, Philadelphia defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere and Chicago forward Artemi Panarin are the finalists for the Calder Trophy for the NHL's top rookie.

Analysis: The 19-year-old McDavid had 16 goals and 32 assists despite missing much of the season due to a broken collarbone, living up to his hype as the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft.
5/2/2016 Joe Thornton, SJ, C
Thornton delivered during the third period of Sunday's victory over Nashville in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Analysis: Thornton's empty-net goal in the final minute proved to be crucial to the Sharks' 3-2 win, as the Predators scored with four seconds left. The veteran also helped set up Joe Pavelski's score that snapped a 1-all tie with 2:40 left.
5/2/2016 Logan Couture, SJ, C
Couture recorded a goal and an assist in Sunday's win over Nashville in Game 2 of the Western Conference second round.

Analysis: He's been on a tear during these playoffs, racking up eight points over San Jose's last four games and 10 in seven overall contests. Couture had two goals in the Sharks' Game 1 win and three assists in the team's opening-round clincher against Los Angeles.
5/2/2016 Martin Jones, SJ, G
Jones was sharp again in Sunday's Game 2, stopping 37 shots to help the Sharks to a 3-2 win over Nashville and claim a 2-0 lead in this Western Conference semifinal.

Analysis: Jones has been up to the task in his first postseason as a starter, posting a 2.13 goals-against average and .923 save percentage and winning six of seven games.
5/2/2016 Joe Pavelski, SJ, C
Pavelski rose to the occasion Sunday, scoring a go-ahead goal with 2:40 remaining and adding two assists to help the Sharks take a 2-0 lead in their second-round series with Nashville.

Analysis: The San Jose captain is a big reason why the Sharks are two games away from a surprise conference finals appearance, as he's amassed a team-high six goals and four assists this postseason.
5/2/2016 Jamie Benn, Dal, LW
Benn came through with a goal and an assist in Dallas' Game 2 loss to St. Louis in the Western Conference second round.

Analysis: Benn's goal with 2:36 remaining in regulation forced overtime in the eventual 4-3 loss and was a good sign after the prolific scorer was held without a point in Game 1.
5/2/2016 Cody Eakin, Dal, C
Eakin assisted on all three Dallas goals in Sunday's overtime loss to St. Louis in Game 2 of the Western Conference second round.

Analysis: Eakin now has seven assists - though no goals - in eight games this postseason while taking on an increased offensive role due to Tyler Seguin's injury.
5/2/2016 Antti Niemi, Dal, G
Niemi was strong in a relief effort in Sunday's Game 2, stopping 19 of 20 shots in the Stars' 4-3 overtime loss to St. Louis in the Western Conference second round.

Analysis: Expect Niemi to get the call in Tuesday's Game 3 after he clearly outplayed Kari Lehtonen and helped the Stars rally from a 3-1 deficit to force overtime.
5/2/2016 Kari Lehtonen, Dal, G
Lehtonen was pulled after one period in Sunday's Game 2 after allowing three St. Louis goals on five shots.

Analysis: Lehtonen played very well in the Stars' Game 1 victory but will likely head to the bench for Game 3, as Antti Niemi was solid in relief. There's a chance he'll get another opportunity down the road, as neither goalie has been consistent enough to claim a firm hold on the job.
5/2/2016 Kevin Shattenkirk, StL, D
Shattenkirk had two assists - including one on David Backes' overtime goal - to help St. Louis even its second-round series with Dallas with Sunday's 4-3 win.

Analysis: The defenseman had a goal in Game 1 and now has seven points in nine games this postseason, tied for the most among Blues players.
5/2/2016 Robby Fabbri, StL, C
Fabbri contributed a pair of assists to Sunday's overtime victory over Dallas in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Analysis: The rookie's seven points in nine games this postseason is tied for the team lead.
5/2/2016 David Backes, StL, C
Backes drew the Blues even in their second-round series with Dallas by scoring in overtime in Sunday's 4-3 Game 2 win.

Analysis: The St. Louis captain also had an assist on the team's first goal. Backes is having a solid postseason, recording three goals and three assists in nine games.
5/2/2016 Antti Raanta, NYR, G
The Rangers have re-signed Raanta to an undisclosed contract.

Analysis: Raanta, who was slated to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, went 11-6-2 with a 2.24 goals-against average in 25 games as Henrik Lundqvist's backup this past season. He allowed two goals or less in 13 of his 18 starts.
5/1/2016 Brooks Orpik, Was, D
Orpik was suspended three games for his late hit to the head of Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta. Orpik will miss Game 3 Monday, Game 4 Wednesday and Game 5 Saturday. He'd be eligible to return if the series gets to Game 6 on May 10.

Analysis: Orpik hit Maatta in the head after the puck was gone four minutes into Game 2 Saturday and was given a two-minute minor penalty for interference. After a hearing with the NHL's department of player safety, the punishment was far more severe.
5/1/2016 Tyler Johnson, TB, C
Johnson had two goals and one assist Saturday.

Analysis: Johnson and the Bolts go to Brooklyn for Game 3 with the series tied.
