Drayson Bowman skated with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin on Monday at practice.

Coach Kirk Muller likes the way Bowman utilizes his size and speed. He recorded five shots during his 9:30 of ice time in Carolina's 5-1 loss to Florida on Saturday. Bowman played mostly on the fourth line in the contest and he was on the ice when Patrick Dwyer scored the team's lone goal. "Hopefully I'll be able to skate and open up some things for them," Bowman said of his promotion. "Then get out on the forecheck and hunt that puck down."

Marcus Johansson scored a late tying goal and an overtime winner in Game 6 to lead the Capitals to a wild 2-1 overtime win over the Maple Leafs on Sunday evening.

Johansson's first two goals of the playoffs wrapped up a surprisingly tough first round series for the Presidents Trophy winners. After the Maple Leafs took two of the first three games, the Capitals won the final three to set up a second round date with the Penguins. Johansson, who totaled five points in the six-game series, flipped a rebound home from the top of the goal mouth to seal the deal.

Johnny Gaudreau was named a finalist for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy on Sunday.

The trophy "is an annual award given to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability." It is voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. The last member of the Flames to win it was Jiri Hudler in 2014. Bob MacMillan was the first Flame to take home the honors in 1979, when the team was still in Atlanta. Hall of Famer and Flames' Cup champion Joe Mullen won the other two times for the franchise, in 1987 and 1989.

Clarke MacArthur netted the overtime winner in Ottawa's 3-2 victory against Boston in Game 6 Sunday afternoon.

With that, Ottawa has eliminated Boston and advanced to the second round where the Senators will face the New York Rangers. Bobby Ryan scored a goal and registered an assist for Ottawa, giving him seven points in six postseason contests. Kyle Turris netted Ottawa's other goal on Sunday. Derick Brassard assisted on two of the Senators' three markers. He had two goals and eight points in the first round.

David Krejci (lower body) isn't available for Game 6 on Sunday.

Krejci suffered a lower-body injury in Friday's game. He had 23 goals and 54 points in 82 regular season games, but had been held off the scoresheet in three playoff contests. The Bruins need to win Game 6 to stay alive in the first round.

Karl Alzner will not play in Game 6 Sunday.

Alzner was a participant in the morning skate but the decision has been made to sit him out with an upper body injury. It is the fourth straight game he has missed and the Capitals will go with six defensemen and 12 forwards against the Maple Leafs.

John Stevens will become the next head coach of the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings haven't issued their formal announcement yet, but Kings GM Rob Blake has already confirmed the decision, so consider it official. Stevens spent parts of four seasons as the Philadelphia Flyers' bench boss from 2006-2009 and posted a 120-109-34 record in that role. Under his leadership Philadelphia made it to the Eastern Conference Final in 2008. After his tenure with the Flyers ended, he joined the Los Angeles Kings where he's been serving as an assistant and more recently associate coach. He also briefly served as the Kings' interim head coach in 2011-12 during the period between the firing of Terry Murray and hiring of Darryl Sutter.

Matt Murray has not been on the ice since he suffered a lower body injury prior to Game 1 of the first round on April 12.

That does not bode well for Murray and it looks as if Marc-Andre Fleury will be between the pipes for Game 1 of the second round later this week. There is no timetable at this time for the return of Murray to the Penguins lineup.

Zach Werenski will miss the next four-to-six weeks with facial fractures.

While the Columbus Blue Jackets have been eliminated from the playoffs, Werenski would have played for the United States at the World Championships had he remained healthy. He required stitches on the outside and insides of his face in addition to fracturing his orbital bone and a bone inside his sinus cavity. Fortunately, he won't need additional surgery. Werenski, who is a finalist for the Calder Trophy, had 11 goals and 47 points this season in 78 games. Not too shabby for a teenage defenseman. He is a must have next season in fantasy hockey. The injury occurred in Game 3 against Pittsburgh and Werenski could not play in the remainder of the series.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet is reporting that Ilya Kovalchuk wants to return to the NHL.

Kovalchuk left the New Jersey Devils at the end of the 2012-13 season to play in his native Russia by 'retiring' from the NHL. The sniper is only 34 years of age and had 417 goals and 816 points in 816 games before bolting to the KHL. He may or may not return to New Jersey and if not, a team will have to pay the Devils a pretty penny. "The New Jersey Devils own his rights, he could sign and play for them no problem," said Friedman on Hockey Night in Canada. "If he wants to play for somebody else, technically all the other NHL teams would have to approve it. But here's the way that this I think is going to work: if he doesn't want to play for New Jersey or if New Jersey doesn't want him playing for them, and neither the agent nor the team is commenting on this, I think whoever gets him is going to work out either a sign and trade with New Jersey or they’re going to trade for his rights."

Oscar Klefbom didn't play in the third period on Saturday against San Jose because of an illness.

"It's important for us to get healthy before we get to Anaheim," said coach Todd McLellan after the game. The Oilers managed to record a 3-1 win over the Sharks in Game 6 without Klefbom, but his presence on the back end will be needed in Round 2 versus the Ducks.

Cam Talbot was the standout as the Edmonton Oilers eliminated the San Jose Sharks with a 3-1 win in Game 6 on Saturday night.

Talbot stopped 27 out of 28 shots in Game 6, holding strong in the second period in particular when he stopped all 12 shots he faced. He helped Edmonton win their first series since 2006 by posting a 2.03 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage.
