Chris Pronger hasn't given up on the possibility of playing hockey again.

That being said, Pronger is 38 years old, hasn't played since Nov. 19, 2011, and is still dealing with concussion-related symptoms. He has had difficulty doing activities that raise his heart rate. In addition he's continually getting strong prescription of glasses and is dealing with diminished peripheral vision. So a comeback doesn't seem likely, but Pronger isn't ready to retire yet. It's worth noting that Pronger comes with an annual cap hit of $4,935,714 and because he signed it over the age of 35, he'll stay on the Flyers' books if he retires. However, if he doesn't retire, the Flyers can get around his cap hit by keeping him on the long-term injured reserve list.

Mathew Barzal has been named as a finalist for the Calder Trophy.

Barzal is the heavy favorite to win after scoring 22 goals and 85 points in 82 games. In terms of points, only two players had better rookie campaigns than him in the salary cap era. They were Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. Clayton Keller and Brock Boeser are the other two nominees for this year's Calder Trophy.

Patric Hornqvist (upper body) is expected to return to the Penguins' lineup on Sunday.

Hornqvist has joined the Penguins for their pregame warmups and is skating on the top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel. Getting Hornqvist back is a nice boost for the Penguins, but it's particularly helpful given that the Penguins are expected to be without Evgeni Malkin (leg) Sunday afternoon.

Evgeni Malkin (leg) hasn't accompanied the Penguins for the pregame warmups ahead of Game 6.

Nothing has been made official yet, but it looks like Malkin will miss Sunday's afternoon contest. He was hurt during Friday's game and was termed as a game-time decision. He has three goals and five points in five contests in the first round series.

Ivan Provorov (shoulder) will be in the lineup for Game 6 Sunday afternoon.

Provorov's status was originally uncertain as he crashed hard into the boards on Friday and might have hurt his shoulder in the process. He briefly returned to the game, but that was only for a matter of seconds. The Flyers didn't provide an update regarding Provorov on Saturday, further fueling speculation. It looks like in the end, he's still able to play though.

Evgeni Malkin will be a game-time decision Sunday after suffering a leg injury Friday.

Malkin had his left ankle buckle in the loss to the Flyers Friday. This has been a different season for Malkin who missed only four games this season, the second time since 2008-09 that he managed to play in at least 70 games. We guess he was due for the injury.

Slava Voynov has completed his three year deal in the KHL and could attempt to return to the NHL next season.

Voynov is still suspended indefinitely by the NHL after he was charged with domestic violence and self-departed back to Russia in 2015 after pleading no-contest to the charge stemming from an October 2014 arrest. Voynov would need to apply to commissioner Gary Bettman for reinstatement and there is some question as to whether the Kings would want him back or not. "It’s so premature at this point, because those hurdles that he has to go through to be reinstated by the NHL don’t have anything to do with us," General Manager Rob Blake said. "To be honest with you, it’s so far away from our play right now that we haven’t had those discussions. Like I said, that’s going to be between him and his agent and his people representing him to be able to get back into that position before we could even get involved." Stay tuned.

Tuukka Rask was pulled during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Rask gave up four goals on just 13 shots in 31:55 of action. The Bruins managed to make the game close after he was yanked, but they couldn't complete the comeback. Rask now has a 3-2 record with a 2.90 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage this postseason. Anton Khudobin, who entered the game in relief of Rask, turned aside all eight shots he faced. Despite the loss, the Bruins still lead the best-of-seven series 3-2. Game 6 will be played in Toronto on Monday night. Expect Rask to be back between the pipes for that one.
Apr 21 - 11:31 PM

James van Riemsdyk scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins.

JVR helped set up Tyler Bozak's goal in the second period that extended the Leafs' lead to 3-1 at the time. Van Riemsdyk then made it 4-1 just over a minute later. He finished the game with three shots on goal and one blocked shot in 10:01 of ice time. The 28-year-old has three goals and one assist in five games this postseason. The Leafs did their best to blow Game 5 by taking the final four penalties of the game, but they managed to hang on to force a sixth game. Game 6 will be played in Toronto on Monday night. The Leafs trail the best-of-seven series 3-2.
Apr 21 - 11:18 PM

Patrice Bergeron will play in Game 5 against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Bergeron missed Game 4 because of an upper-body issue, but he's good to go tonight. The 32-year-old is centering David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand. He has five assists in three games during the postseason.
Apr 21 - 7:50 PM

Nicklas Backstrom scored a pair of goals, including the overtime winner, and he added an assist in Game 5 against Columbus.

Backstrom tied the game at 1-1 back in the first period and he gave Washington a 3-2 series lead with his fourth career playoff overtime marker. He picked up an assist on a power-play goal by T.J. Oshie. Backstrom has two goals and six assists through five postseason matches against Columbus.
Apr 21 - 6:23 PM

Nikita Kucherov netted the game-winning goal in Game 5 to send Tampa Bay into the second round and eliminate the New Jersey Devils.

Kucherov provided an important insurance goal at the 12:27 mark of the third period and it ended up being the game winner after New Jersey got a goal from Patrick Maroon with three minutes remaining. Kucherov scored five goals in the series and he generated nine points in five contests. Tampa Bay will host Boston or Toronto in the second round.
