Jimmy Howard was remarkable in the final week of the season and it earned him the NHL's first star selection.

He posted a 4-0-0 record, with a 0.75 goals-against average, a .969 save percentage and two shutouts in four starts. If he can continue that kind of play in the postseason then the Red Wings stand an excellent chance of upsetting the Anaheim Ducks in the first round.

Alex Burrows has been ruled out for Game 6 versus Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

He wasn't expected to be ready to play and that has been confirmed by coach Guy Boucher. Mark Borowiecki (lower body) won't be available to play either on Tuesday night.

Patric Hornqvist (upper body) won't return for Game 6 at Ottawa on Tuesday night.

He stayed in Pittsburgh to rehab from his upper-body injury. Hornqvist is making progress, according to coach Mike Sullivan, but he is still day-to-day.

Justin Schultz (upper body) won't play Tuesday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

He appeared to be close to getting back in the lineup on Sunday afternoon, but he didn't play against Ottawa. Schultz is continuing to rehab, while accompanying the team on the road.

Predators goalie Pekka Rinne was outstanding Monday night during Nashville's 6-3 victory over the visiting Anaheim Ducks in the sixth and final game of the Western Conference Final.

Rinne made 38 saves against the Ducks in this one. He stopped 32 in the Preds' 3-1 victory last Saturday. "He's the best player on our team, night in and night out," said Colton Sissons, who scored three of Nashville's goals Monday. "I've never met anyone as competitive as Pekka." Rinne will enter the Stanley Cup Final May 29 with a 12-4 postseason record and a legitimate shot at the Conn Smythe Trophy as the premier player in the NHL playoffs. His goals-against average in the postseason is only 1.70 and he has an impressive save percentage of .941.

The Nashville Predators are going to the first Stanley Cup Final in their franchise history thanks to a Colton Sissons hat trick and a dramatic 6-3 triumph Monday night over the visiting Anaheim Ducks in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

Sissons recorded his first playoff hat trick, one in the first period and two in the third. His third goal, with six minutes left in the third period, made it 4-3 for the Preds and turned out to be the game winner. It was a beauty. Moments after an Anaheim power play, Sissons took a pinpoint, cross-ice pass from Calle Jarnkrok and fired a perfect shot past Ducks goalie Jonathan Bernier. Sissons goes into the Stanley Cup final May 29 against either the Pittsburgh Penguins or the Ottawa Senators with five postseason goals. His first Monday gave the Preds a 2-0 lead in the first period. Filip Forsberg found the empty net for his eighth goal of the playoffs. He also assisted on Sissons' second goal and increased his postseason points streak to seven games. Austin Watson also scored an empty-netter as well as the game's first goal. Watson now has four playoff goals. Pontus Aberg contributed two assists for the Western champions.

Jonathan Bernier will play between the pipes in Game 6 Monday night.

John Gibson suffered a lower-body injury in Game 5. He skated Monday morning and the hope was that he would be available, but that ultimately wasn't the case. Bernier has a 2.90 GAA and .905 save percentage in three playoff games this year, but this will be his first postseason start of the Ducks' run.

John Gibson (lower body) took part in Monday's morning skate.

Gibson left Game 5 after he suffered the injury. Ducks coach Randy Carlyle took that as a good sign, but he'll naturally need to consult with the goaltender and the training staff before he has a final answer regarding Gibson's availability for Game 6 Monday night.

The Chicago Blackhawks are reportedly interested in hiring Ulf Samuelsson as their next assistant coach.

He would replace Mike Kitchen, who was fired back in April. Samuelsson spent the 2016-17 season as the head coach of the Charlotte Checkers (Carolina's farm team). He also has experience as an associate coach with the Arizona Coyotes and as an assistant coach with the New York Rangers.
May 22 - 10:00 AM

Rickard Rakell (lower body) will not play in Game 6 on Monday.

Rakell missed Game 5 as a surprise scratch but is obviously ailing as he did not make the trip to Nashville for Monday's game. Rakell led the Ducks in goals this season with 33 goals and his loss from the lineup may be pivotal.
May 22 - 7:39 AM

Erik Karlsson could have returned for the third period of Game 5, but Senators coach Guy Boucher opted to let him rest.

Boucher's decision made sense given that Ottawa was already down 5-0 through 40 minutes, so keeping Karlsson in the game wouldn't have turned the tide. Karlsson appeared to suffer a foot or ankle injury when he got tangled with Pittsburgh's Scott Wilson in the second period. Karlsson left the game immediately after that incident, but he's expected to be fine for Game 6.
May 21 - 6:20 PM

Henrik Lundqvist led Team Sweden to 2-1 shootout victory over Canada in the gold medal game of the 2017 World Championship.

Lundqvist stopped 42 of 43 shots prior to the shootout and didn't surrender a single goal in four shootout rounds. He's certainly going into his summer training on a much more positive note after his Rangers were eliminated by the Ottawa Senators in the second round. He decided to play for Team Sweden in part because his brother Joel was the team captain, who he hadn't played with for 12 years.
