Jake Gardiner is still sidelined because of a combination of concussion and whiplash symptoms.

"The best way to describe it is that he's had no setbacks," Toronto Marlies coach Dallas Eakins said. "I don't care if we are down to three defensemen. You don't rush those (head injuries). He's progressed to light workouts." The smooth-skating blueliner, who has been out since Dec. 8, has been seen around the dressing room but he hasn't been able to return to the ice yet.

Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault admitted that Ryan McDonagh had been playing with a broken foot for a few games.

McDonagh played a surprisingly low 17:33 seconds in Friday's Game 7 loss to Tampa Bay. The Rangers' captain left the game briefly but returned to the bench a little later on. The 25-year-old finished the postseason with three goals and nine points in 19 games.

Ben Bishop turned aside all 22 shots he faced in Friday's 2-0 win against the Rangers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Bishop allowed five goals on 26 shots in a Game 6 loss to New York, but he bounced back in a big way in a do-or-die game. He hasn't always looked good in the playoffs, but he has been dominant in two Game Sevens (against Detroit and now New York). The 28-year-old now has 12-8 record this postseason with a 2.15 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage. The Lightning will now face the winner of the Western Conference Final between the Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final.

Alex Killorn scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 2-0 win in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final over the New York Rangers.

This Game 7 was very tight, as the teams were deadlocked in a 0-0 tie after 40 minutes of play. Killorn scored at the 1:54 mark of the third period to give the Lightning the lead and they never looked back. Tampa Bay is now heading to the Stanley Cup final. They will take on the winner of the Western Conference Final between Anaheim and Chicago. Killorn, 25, has been impressive through three playoff rounds in 2015. He has seven goals and 16 points in 20 postseason games this year. Ondrej Palat scored the insurance goal later on in the third frame for the Lightning.

Hockey Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur would choose Brendan Gallagher to be the next captain of the Montreal Canadiens.

"I like the way he plays," Lafleur said Wednesday. "He shows up every night and gives 100 percent. I think he's a great influence on his teammates. A captain shouldn't be chosen on the amount of goals he's going to score. That guy (Gallagher) really impressed me every night I saw him play. He's aggressive, he wants to win. He gets some bad shots from opponents, he takes a lot of hits and there's not too many guys on the team that work like he does." Lefleur serves as an ambassador for the Canadiens and he's never been shy about expressing his opinion of the team.

Nicklas Backstrom had arthroscopic hip surgery on Wednesday afternoon.

"Based on the nature of this procedure we are confident that Nick will be completely healthy prior to the start of the 2015-16 regular season," said a statement by the Washington Capitals. He suited up in all 82 games during the regular season for the fifth time in his career and he has played six years without missing a game. Backstrom didn't reveal an injury after the Capitals were eliminated from the playoffs and an exact timetable for his recovery could be announced after he begins rehabilitating his hip several weeks from now.

Ryan Getzlaf didn't like the way he played in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

"It started with me," Getzlaf said after Anaheim's 5-2 loss to Chicago on Wednesday night. "I was terrible." He didn't have a point, attempted only four shots, lost 11 of 15 faceoffs and finished with a minus-3 rating. Getzlaf has amassed 19 points in 15 games this playoffs and he's played very well even though he hasn't scored a goal since Game 1 of the second round against Calgary. He will look to rebound in Game 7 on Saturday night.

Former Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma has reportedly interviewed for the Buffalo Sabres vacant head coaching job.

Star defenseman Duncan Keith assisted on three goals in less than four minutes during the second period Wednesday night to help the Blackhawks defeat the Anaheim Ducks 5-2 in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

The seventh and deciding game of the series will be played Saturday night in Anaheim. Wednesday, there were no goals in the first period but the Hawks jumped ahead 3-0 in the second when Keith drew his 12th, 13th and 14th assists of the playoffs on goals by Brandon Saad (fifth), Marian Hossa (third) and Patrick Kane (10th). The Ducks cut Chicago's lead to 3-2 at 1:57 of the third period but Andrew Shaw scored his second goal of the post-season at 16:28 of the third to make it 4-2 for the Hawks. Shaw then found the empty net at 19:11 to cement the 5-2 victory for the Hawks. Andrew Desjardins assisted on both of Shaw's goals, his first two assists of the playoffs. Shaw also led the game in hits, with seven.
