Cam Talbot was spectacular in Friday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

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.

Vladimir Tarasenko scored a pair of goals in Friday's 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators.

Tarasenko talked about being "better" in the second round than he was in the first, and he delivered a big performance tonight. His first goal, which was scored on the power play, tied the game at one with 20 seconds remaining in the opening period. Then, with just under four minutes remaining, Tarasenko managed to net the game-winning goal. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating and six shots on goal in 22 minutes of ice time. Tarasenko now has three goals and two assists in seven playoff games. This best-of-seven series is tied 1-1 with Game 3 being played in Nashville on Sunday.

Sami Vatanen will not be in the lineup for Game 2 against Edmonton on Friday night.

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

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.

Carl Hagelin (lower body) was able to fully participate in Friday's practice.

Hagelin had joined the Penguins for previous practices, but he had been getting no or limited contact until now. Now that he's progressed to full contact, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan is calling Hagelin a game-time decision for Saturday's contest. It remains to be seen who would be scratched to make room for Hagelin if he does play. "Regardless of what we line we put him on, he brings that element of speed, his ability to stretch the ice, his pursuit game, forces turnovers all the time and we can create a lot of offense off of it," Sullivan said. "He’s a good penalty killer; he’s a solid two-way player. So we can use him in a number of different capacities, but I think his speed certainly helps us play the type of game that we want to play and we’re a more competitive team when he’s in the lineup."

Alex Ovechkin found the back of the net in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ovechkin cut Pittsburgh's lead to 2-1 with his goal at the 18:17 mark of the second period. Teammate Evgeny Kuznetsov tied the game at two in the third period, but Pens center Nick Bonino eventually gave his team the lead again. Ovechkin now has four goals and no assists in seven games during the 2017 playoffs. He finished tonight's tilt with two penalty minutes, three shots on goal and six hits in 19:11 of ice time. The Capitals will look to even up the series at home on Saturday.

Sidney Crosby scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Crosby opened the scoring 12 seconds into the second period, and he made it 2-0 just 52 seconds later. The Capitals were able to tie the game thanks to two goals by Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov. But Crosby's teammate, Nick Bonino, restored Pittsburgh's lead with less than eight minutes remaining in the game. Crosby finished tonight's contest with a plus-2 rating and five shots on goal in 17:25 of ice time. Pittsburgh now holds a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 2 will be held in Washington on Saturday.

Erik Karlsson scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 2-1 win over the New York Rangers.

Karlsson gave the Sens the lead with just over four minutes remaining in the third period, when he banked a shot off Henrik Lundqvist's mask and in from the corner. Karlsson finished the game with five shots on goal and a plus-1 rating in 28:54 ice time. The Sens defenseman now has one goal and six assists in seven games this postseason. The Senators lead the best-of-seven series 1-0. Game 2 will be played in Ottawa on Saturday. Ryan Dzingel also scored for the Sens.

Leon Draisaitl picked up a goal and three assists in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

What an incredible night for the Oilers forward. Draisaitl helped set up Mark Letestu's power play goal in the first period (1-1) before picking up primary assists on third-period goals by Letestu (2-1) and Adam Larsson (3-1). Draisaitl finally put the game away in the third frame, as he was able to score an empty-netter with just over a minute left in regulation. Draisaitl had no points in his first four games of the 2017 playoffs, but he's now recorded seven points in his last three contests. Game 2 will be held in Anaheim on Friday night.
Apr 27 - 1:53 AM

Kevin Bieksa left Wednesday's game against Edmonton because of a lower-body injury.

Bieksa exited the game in the second period after he got tangled up with Edmonton's Anton Slepyshev in the second period. The Ducks defenseman never returned to the game (he played just 7:03 tonight). It's a tough blow for Anaheim, as they're already without Sami Vatanen, but the good news is that Vatanen is closing in on a return. Bieksa is considered day-to-day for now.
