Rick Nash (undisclosed) joined the morning skate Tuesday but isn't expected to play tonight against the Winnipeg Jets.

Nash said he's feeling better but declined to get into specifics when asked about the nature of the injury. We wouldn't count on him playing tonight, but this is definite progress and fantasy owners should be encouraged Nash is back on the ice. The Rangers star has been sidelined Jan. 19 and it's believed he suffered a concussion on a hit from Bruins forward Milan Lucic. We'll let you know more as we hear it.

The Edmonton Oilers have have won the NHL Draft Lottery, likely meaning Connor McDavid will go there with the first-overall pick in June's draft.

Buffalo's season of tanking gave them the best odds (20 percent) at the top pick, but now they will end up going second and likely taking Jack Eichel. McDavid is considered a generational prospect who can change a team’s course the day he is drafted. The 18-year-old registered 44 goals and 120 points in 47 games in the OHL this season. In his three seasons, he scored 97 goals and recorded 285 points. It's the fourth time in six years Edmonton will be picking first overall.

The buzz is starting to get louder around Mike Milbury’s name as a coaching fit in Boston, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Of course, the first step is firing coach Claude Julien after the team missed the playoffs for the first time in eight years. Boston went 41-27-14 this season. Milbury is currently an analyst for NBC, and the 62-year-old has not coached since 1998-99, though he began his coaching career in the late 80s with the Bruins.

Justin Abdelkader (hand) is likely to return to the Red Wings lineup for Game 3, according to coach Mike Babcock.

Abdelkader has not played since April 4. The 28-year-old had 23 goals and 44 points during the regular season. Pay close attention to the Red Wings' practices leading up to Tuesday's game.

Petr Mrazek will remain the Red Wings’ starting goaltender, coach Mike Babcock said after Game 2.

Mrazek was yanked after the second period when he allowed four goals on 18 shots in the 5-1 Game 2 loss. The first-round series shifts to Detroit on Tuesday. Mark posted a 2.38 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage during the regular season, and he stopped 44 of 46 shots in Game 1.

The St. Louis Blues' 4-1 win against the Minnesota Wild in Game 2 represents the first playoff victory of goalie Jake Allen's NHL career.

Allen made 24 out of 25 stops as the Blues tied their first-round series at 1-1. Allen finished the season on fire, but with every game holding such importance, he needed a win like this to hold off Brian Elliott.

After failing to register a shot on goal in Game 1, Vladimir Tarasenko's first career playoff hat trick powered a 4-1 St. Louis Blues win against the Minnesota Wild in Game 2.

Tarasenko has four points so far in this series, as he had an assist in Game 1. The talented Russian had 37 goals in 2014-15, so don't be surprised if he has a big playoff run, especially with a contract on the line.

Tyler Johnson scored two big goals as the Tampa Bay Lightning tied their series against the Detroit Red Wings thanks to a 5-1 win.

The Lightning were rewarded in Game 2 after losing in Game 1 despite a lopsided shot differential. Johnson wasn't the only player to have a strong game, as Valtteri Filppula had a goal and an assist while both Steve Stamkos and Nikita Nesterov enjoyed two-helper afternoons.

The Chicago Blackhawks will start Scott Darling instead of Corey Crawford for Game 3 against the Nashville Predators.

Many believe that it was a mistake for Joel Quenneville to go with Crawford over Darling in Game 2's 6-2 loss, especially after Darling's perfect relief appearance. Every playoff game probably qualifies for the biggest of the young goalie's career at this point.
Apr 18 - 3:05 PM

Grim news for the Nashville Predators: Shea Weber (leg) isn't traveling with the team to face the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 (and likely beyond).

With an update coming on Wednesday, it certainly doesn't sound like he'll be back anytime soon. The Predators are probably one of the teams most equipped to handle Weber's injury, but it's obviously a huge blow to Nashville anyway.
Apr 18 - 2:30 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins will remain without Christian Ehrhoff as they try to tie their playoff series with the New York Rangers in Game 2.

Ehrhoff, 32, has been sidelined since March 24 with an upper-body injury. Really, his season hasn't really ever taken off with the Penguins thanks in large part to various ailments. Pittsburgh would gladly welcome him back if he can get into this series, though.

Jakub Voracek will play for the Czech Republic at the upcoming World Championships.

He will get to play with his idol and fellow countryman Jaromir Jagr in front of a home crowd as the Worlds will take place in the Czech Republic. Voracek finished the season tied for fourth in NHL scoring with 81 points and while he was satisfied with his season personally, he stated that he has only done it once. "It’s been a long season," Voracek said. "If I do it next year, maybe I can admit that I belong there [in that club]. Right now, I had one good season. It doesn’t end for me. Nothing changes. I will work hard this summer."
