Jonas Hiller (lower body) might return as early as this weekend.

Hiller participated in Wednesday's practice. "I’ll have to see how it feels later today if it starts tightening up again," he said. "I felt pretty good. I definitely hope I’ll be able to play on the weekend. At the same time, I don’t want to rush it just to be back. I’m happy so far. It feels better. It’s nice to be back on the ice." Hiller got off to a rough start with a 3.69 GAA and .872 save percentage in six games.

Tuukka Rask allowed four goals on 24 shots during Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7.

Rask allowed two goals in the first 6:12 of the game and he followed that up by giving up two more goals on six shots in the second frame. The Bruins went into the third period trailing 4-3, but they managed to come back because Rask turned aside all eight shots he faced and because they scored four unanswered goals over the final 20 minutes. The Bruins netminder now has a 4-3 record with a 2.94 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage this postseason. Boston will now take on Tampa Bay in the second round. They'll need Rask to be a whole lot better if they want to make it past the Bolts.

Patrick Marleau scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 7.

Marleau's first-period goals gave the Maple Leafs 1-0 and 2-1 leads at the time, but they still found themselves down 3-2 heading into the first intermission. Toronto used a big two-goal second period (Travis Dermott and Kasperi Kapanen) to jump ahead 4-3 heading into the third. Unfortunately for the Leafs, they fell apart in the third frame and allowed the Bruins to score four straight. Marleau finished the game with a minus-1 rating, two shots on goal and four hits in 18:35 of ice time. The 38-year-old had four goals and one assist in seven games during the series. The Maple Leafs have now been bounced in the first round for the second year in a row.

Jake DeBrusk scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7.

DeBrusk's power-play goal at the 4:47 mark of the first period tied the game at one. The Bruins found themselves down 4-3 in the third frame, but Torey Krug tied it up before DeBrusk scored the go-ahead goal on a beautiful individual effort to make it 5-4 for his team. The 21-year-old had a solid opening round, as he collected five goals and seven points in seven games. Danton Heinen, Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand also found the back of the net for the Bruins. Boston will now face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Expect that series to start on the weekend.

Patrice Bergeron scored a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7.

Bergeron gave the Bruins their first lead of the game (3-2) in the final minute of the opening period. The Bruins went into the third period trailing by one goal (4-3), but Bergeron helped set up third-period markers by Torey Krug (4-4) and David Pastrnak (6-4). The veteran finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two shots on goal and one hit in 19:36 of ice time. Bergeron wraps up the first round with a goal and eight points in six games. Jake DeBrusk (twice), Danton Heinen and Brad Marchand also found the back of the net for the Bruins in this one. Boston will now face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second round.

Ivan Provorov revealed that his shoulder injury was a Grade 3 AC sprain.

Provorov would have needed six-to-eight weeks to recover if it was the regular season. He was playing through the issue in Game 6, but by the third period he was losing feeling in his arm. That let to him surrendering some turnovers. He should still be healthy in time to begin his summer training in July, so this injury isn't expected to impact his off-season plans.

Carl Hagelin (upper body) won't travel with the Penguins to Washington.

Hagelin has officially been ruled out for Game 1. His status for Game 2 hasn't been announced yet, but we're taking the fact that he isn't traveling with the team as a sign that they don't expect him to return that quickly. He didn't practice with the Penguins on Wednesday, but he was on the ice before the rest of the team.
Apr 25 - 12:59 PM

Evgeni Malkin (lower body) won't play in Game 1 of the second round.

The good news is that Malkin will be traveling with the team, so there's a chance that he'll return for Game 2. Malkin was on the ice Wednesday morning prior to the Penguins' practice.
Apr 25 - 12:56 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) is listed as week-to-week, according to coach Barry Trotz.

Trotz isn't sure if Burakovsky will be available to play in Round 2 against Pittsburgh. The Capitals forward was injured in Game 2 against Columbus and he had to undergo a minor surgery for the upper-body ailment. Burakovsky is expected to resume skating soon.
Apr 25 - 11:53 AM

Michal Neuvirth will have arthroscopic surgery on both hips.

Neuvirth was out with a lower-body injury late in the year before returning to action in the postseason. He also plans to change his trainer and off-season training regimen to try to avoid injuries. Neuvirth expects to be good to go for training camp.

Brian Elliott may need additional surgery this off-season.

Apr 25 - 11:24 AM

Danton Heinen will be back in the lineup for Game 7 on Wednesday night.

Heinen is projected to play on the third line with Riley Nash and David Backes. He was a healthy scratch for Game 6, but Tommy Wingels will be in the press box for Game 7 against Toronto.
