Jonathan Toews had nine penalty minutes for a single incident on Friday.

Toews was assessed a two-minute minor for boarding the Sharks' Joe Thornton, but then Toews continued to push Thornton until the two finally dropped the gloves and fought. Toews ended up with a second minor for unsportsmanlike conduct and five for fighting. "The last few games, including last season, there’s always some stuff going on, be it after the whistles or during the play. I guess it just comes down to players trying to get under your skin and test you a little bit," Toews said. "I figured at some point I had to stand up for myself. It came down to that, I guess." Before Friday, Toews had just one minor penalty all season.

Nashville Predators GM David Poile acknowledged the widely held belief that defenseman Cody Franson will likely leave via free agency.

Franson is a useful defenseman in most situations, yet the Predators are so loaded with blueliners who boast similar strengths that he was often lost in the shuffle. A tepid finish to his contract year might hurt things a bit (he only had four points in 23 regular season games with Nashville after generating 32 in 55 contests with Toronto in 2014-15), yet the pool of UFA defensemen is so shallow that it would be surprising if Franson doesn't attract multiple bidders.

If the Chicago Blackhawks win in Game 7 against the Anaheim Ducks, Brad Richards will join an exclusive club.

That would give him eight career wins in Game 7's, which would make him just the third person to hit that mark in NHL history. The other two are Ray Bourque and Glenn Anderson, so that's a pretty good group to be in.

Tampa Bay Lightning winger Brenden Morrow could join the "Triple Gold Club" if he wins a Stanley Cup.

His nice NHL career included an Olympic gold medal back in 2010. At the moment, he has 575 points in 991 career regular season games and 46 points in 112 career playoff contests. Morrow isn't a significant contributor any longer, but he's had a good run that could include a rare accomplishment.

The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that Phil Housley is at the top of GM's Ray Shero's list to become the new coach of the New Jersey Devils.

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.
