New York coach John Tortorella feels that Rick Nash will fit in well with the Rangers based on what he has heard.

"The thing I like about Nash -- and I haven't even met him face to face -- in one conversation with him, he's all business," Tortorella said. "Everyone I have talked to about him says he's not a real high-maintenance guy -- [he] wants to play hard, wants to play every day and practice every day. I think we have him at a really good time in his career, and I think he's going to fit in with us tremendously." The Blueshirts bench boss went on to say that he believes Nash "has the hunger to get there and become that go-to guy in the playoffs" at this stage. Nash should help bolster the team's offensive attack in 2012-13 and New York is among the early favorites to win the Eastern Conference again.

Philadelphia did not provide an update on the status of Ivan Provorov, which is a little concerning.

Provorov went hard into the boards on Friday night just before Sean Couturier's goal and may have hurt his shoulder. He was back on the ice for his next shift for a few seconds before he left following Michal Neuvirth's glove save on Sidney Crosby. An update on Provorov may not come until close to puck drop on Sunday afternoon. He would be a big loss for the Flyers if he is unable to play in Game 6.

Patrick Eaves is expected to be ready by mid-October, according to Ducks GM Bob Murray.

Eavesm underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum last month.

Eaves is healthy now, according to Murray, after he skated in only two games in 2017-18.

Stefan Noesen won't play in Game 5 on Saturday due to a lower-body injury.

Alexander Wennberg (upper body) will be back in lineup on Saturday afternoon.

Cory Schneider will start Game 5 against Washington.

That shouldn't come as a surprise, as Schneider has been superb in his previous two starts in the playoffs. He has posted a 1-1 record with a 1.67 goals-against average and .951 save percentage against Tampa Bay. The Devils need a win to stay alive in the postseason.

Joe Thornton (knee) may not be ready to play in Game 1 of the second round against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Thornton has been skating with his teammates, but he apparently does not appear to be up to full speed yet. Against a fast and relentless checking team like the Golden Knights, Thornton may be at a disadvantage if he were to rejoin the San Jose lineup before he can skate at his maximum. There's still some time for that to change, though.
