Anze Kopitar scored the game-winning goal and tying assist in the third period of Wednesday's 2-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings.

Kopitar now has a four-game points streak (2G, 6A). That gives him a point-per-game with 17 in 17 this season. That's the kind of production people were hoping for in making him a top-50 level pick. Jeff Carter is also red-hot with a PPG.

Sidney Crosby will play for team Canada at the World Hockey Championships.

The Penguins were eliminated from the playoffs on Friday night, and we now find out that Crosby has committed to play for his country. Obviously, this is a huge boost to Canada's roster and their chances of winning the gold medal have increased significantly. Canada already had a strong roster with big names such as Tyler Seguin and Matt Duchene, but Crosby's arrival will drop everyone down a notch on the pecking order. The 27-year-old finished the 2014-15 season with 28 goals and 84 points in 77 games. He had two goals and four points in five playoff games.

Bo Horvat was tied for first among Vancouver Canuck players in playoff points.

The talented 20-year-old had a goal and four points which tied him along with the Sedin twins, Radim Vrbata and Jannik Hansen for the team lead. He was also outstanding at the faceoff dot Saturday, winning 11 of 14. He is ready to explode offensively and is worth selecting next season in most pools, especially keeper pools as he can be a force in the years to come.

Henrik Lundqvist is pleased that he will get a few days off from playing.

The Rangers ended their series on Friday, defeating the Penguins in five games and with the next series against either Washington or the Islanders slated to begin on Wednesday or Thursday, it gives the 35-year-old netminder some valuable games off. Lundqvist was stellar against Pittsburgh as he was 4-1 with a 1.53 GAA and a .939 save percentage. If he continues this solid play, the Rangers could carry the Stanley Cup around the ice in June.

Jiri Hudler and the Calgary Flames were on fire Saturday night, eliminating the Vancouver Canucks from their Western Conference First Round playoff series with a 7-4 victory.

Hudler scored two goals and added two assists on an unforgettable night for the upstart Flames, who eliminated the favored Canucks in six games. Calgary, which was 6-1-2 in its final nine home games in the regular season, hadn’t made it out of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs since 2004. The Canucks built a 3-0 lead in the first period before the Flames came back with three goals to tie the game. After Vancouver took a 4-3 lead in the second period, the Flames score four more unanswered goals in the third period, sending the hometown crowd into a tizzy. Hudler's goals were his second and third of the series. His assists, on second-period goals by Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, were his second and third of the series. Four of the Flames had three points -- Gaudreau (a goal and two assists), Matt Stajan (a goal and two assists), Monahan (a goal and two assists) and David Jones (three assists).

Defenseman Duncan Keith notched three points -- including the game-winning goal in the third period -- to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-3 triumph over the visiting Nashville Predators Saturday night.

Keith had a goal and two assists as the Hawks eliminated the Preds 4-2 in the best-of-seven Western Conference First Round Series. Star center Jonathan Toews also contributed a goal and two assists to Chicago's triumph. The Hawks overcame deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in the first period, bouncing back to tie the score 3-3 before the end of the period. The Hawks' big guns took care of the goals, with Patrick Sharp, Toews and Patrick Kane all scoring in the first period. Sharp and Toews both scored their third goals of the playoffs, while Kane netted his second. Kane's tying goal came with six seconds left in the first period. After no scoring in the second period, the stage was set for Keith, who took a pass from Toews and fired a slap shot into the Nashville net for the game winner with 3:48 left in the third period. Keith also posted a game-high six shots on net. In the series, he produced two goals and five assists.

Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek made 28 saves en route to a 4-0 shutout of the Lightning in playoff action in Tampa Bay Saturday.

It was Mrazek's second shutout of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He held the Lightning goalless on three power plays, too. The win gave Detroit a 3-2 advantage in the best-of-seven series. The Wings will have a chance to advance to the second round of the post-season with a win in Game 6 of the series Monday night. Mrazek has been the Wings' best player in this opening-round series. He is 3-2 against the Lightning in the post-season, with a goals-against average of 1.91. His save percentage is .937. The Lightning was favored to win the series but, if the Wings take it, it'll be largely because of Mrazek's magnificence.
Apr 25 - 9:16 PM

The Tampa Bay Lightning decided to make Jonathan Drouin a healthy scratch in Game 5 against the Detroit Red Wings.

Drouin wasn't particularly sharp in his playoff debut in Game 4, generating a -2 rating and receiving just 8:42 TOI. Perhaps he'll be sharper if he gets another chance during this postseason, though?
Apr 25 - 6:31 PM

John Tavares was clearly pumped up as the New York Islanders beat the Washington Capitals 3-1 to force a Game 7 in a testy first-round series.

Tavares scored a goal and an assist, with his helper on the game-winner by Nikolay Kulemin being most noteworthy, as he drew a ton of attention thanks to Alex Ovechkin's highly questionable hit. Tavares now has six points in as many playoff contests.
Apr 25 - 6:20 PM

The New York Islanders forced a Game 7 against the Washington Capitals with a 3-1 win on Saturday in large part due to Jaroslav Halak's efforts.

Halak stopped 38 out of 39 shots as he beguiles the Capitals in elimination situations all these years later. He's faced 30+ shots in four of the last five games, and while he hasn't won every time, Halak is giving the Islanders the kind of goaltending they've been lacking for many years.
Apr 25 - 6:17 PM

Brock Nelson isn't just returning to the New York Islanders lineup, he's skating with Ryan Strome and John Tavares on the first line against the Washington Capitals in Game 6.

Nelson has had some very nice runs of offense this season, especially when handed a prime opportunity linemates-wise like this one. He's a great option in various formats, including daily fantasy sports such as FanDuel.
Apr 25 - 2:57 PM

With their season on the line, the New York Islanders are keeping forward Anders Lee out of the lineup against the Washington Capitals in Game 6.

This is definitely a bit of a surprise, as Lee has had a nice season with New York, not looking out of place while getting some turns with John Tavares' various lines. Adjust your lineups accordingly.
