Tomas Vokoun blocked all 31 shots he faced in a 4-0 win over the Islanders Thursday night.

Stepping in for the ineffective Marc-Andre Fleury, Vokoun answered every challenge in this start and help propel the Penguins to a 3-2 series lead. There's no question Vokoun will be in goal again when the two teams match up for Game Six Saturday.

The Winnipeg Jets have taken Patrik Laine with the second overall pick.

If there’s anyone that could have challenged Auston Matthews to be the first overall pick, it’s Patrick Laine - and he’ll tell you that himself. The self-appointed "best player in the draft" certainly has the resume and the skillset to make good on his claim. Internationally for Finland he posted 22 goals in 24 games, including contests at U-18, U-20 and the WHC. He also captured MVP honors in the SM-Liiga playoff and WHC to boot. The 18-year-old winger comes in at 6’4" and 210 lbs with a powerful stride, deft hands, keen hockey-sense, and the ability to put the puck through the net from anywhere on the ice. The Jets may have missed out on Matthews, but they can't be disappointed with the opportunity to have Laine for years to come. He could be a star for them in the not too distant future.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Andrew Shaw for the 39th and 45th overall picks in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Shaw is eligible to become a restricted free agent on July 1. There was a time when it looked like Chicago would be able to re-sign him given that the Blackhawks freed some cap space by dealing Bryan Bickell to Carolina. However, it came out Friday afternoon that Shaw is reportedly seeking an average annual salary of $4.5 million, which likely priced Chicago out. He had 14 goals and 34 points in 78 games in 2015-16.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have selected Auston Matthews with the first pick of the 2016 NHL Draft.

The Maple Leafs need a number one center and not too many are going to be better than Matthews who could have gone second overall last season had he been born two days earlier. The 18-year-old posted 24 goals and 46 points in 36 games as he played in Switzerland last season. He also posted 13 goals and 20 points in 17 international games for the Americans last season to boot. Much like Connor McDavid before him, Matthews is expected to be a true No. 1 center immediately and become the unquestioned cornerstone of his franchise for the next generation.

The Florida Panthers have acquired Reto Berra from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Rocco Grimaldi.

And just like that, the Panthers have their backup goaltender. Berra couldn't stick with the Avalanche in the NHL for the entire 2015-16 campaign, but that was due to a mixture of injury woes and Calvin Pickard's ascent rather than him struggling on the ice. When Berra did play for Colorado he posted a 2.41 GAA and .922 save percentage in 14 games. He has one season left on his three-year, $4.35 million contract.

Patrick Kane was selected as the 2016 Hart Trophy winner.

No surprise there as Kane ran away with the 2015-16 scoring title with 106 points in 82 games. He also won the Ted Lindsay Award, which also goes to the league's best player, but as voted by his peers. This is the first time a member of the Chicago Blackhawks has won the Hart Trophy since 1968 when Stan Mikita claimed it for the second consecutive season.

The 2016 Vezina Trophy winner is Braden Holtby.

Holtby tied the NHL single-season record with 48 wins last season. He also posted a 2.20 GAA and .922 save percentage in 66 starts. In the end the Vezina voting wasn't even close as Holtby got 140 points to Ben Bishop's 51.

Drew Doughty is the 2016 Norris Trophy winner.

This is the first time Doughty has claimed the Norris Trophy, but he's had a couple near misses in the past. He finished second in the Norris Trophy voting in 2015 and was third in 2010. He's coming off of a campaign where he recorded 14 goals and 51 points in 82 contests. He also had 125 hits and 105 blocked shots.

Artemi Panarin won the 2016 Calder Trophy.

Panarin finished with 1,258 points in the vote ahead of defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere at 955 points and Connor McDavid with 858 points. It would have been interesting to see what McDavid could have done with a full season, but as it is it's not surprising to see Panarin on top. He had 30 goals and 77 points in 80 games.

The NHL has unanimously voted to expand to Las Vegas.

The Quebec City bid wasn't approved at this time, so starting in 2017-18 the NHL will have 31 teams. It will be interesting to see how the NHL does in Vegas, to say the least. Obviously this is a nontraditional market, which comes with its own set of challenges, but then there's also the questions that are unique to Vegas. Will the team get drowned out by the all the shows that happen at night in Vegas? Will the team draw a steady flow of tourists to its games? Will the team present itself a little differently than the rest of the NHL in a reflection of the unique city its representing? At the end of the day though, there's a lot of potential here given the city's size and the constant influx of tourists.

Milan Lucic intends to become a UFA on July 1.

The Kings attempted to re-sign Lucic, but they couldn't make anything work. Los Angeles has even taken the step of allowing the 29 other teams to start talking to Lucic in advance. He'll attract plenty of interest, but Edmonton and Vancouver have often been cited as potential destinations for Lucic if he couldn't make things work with the Kings.

Alex Goligoski has reportedly agreed to a five-year, $27.375 million contract.

In other words Goligoski is getting a $5,475,000 annual cap hit, up from $4.6 million in his previous deal. The fact that he's marginally under $5.5 million is perhaps a reflection of the fact that Oliver Ekman-Larsson is at $5.5 million, so this way he remains the team's highest paid blueliner. Goligoski recorded 42, 36, and 37 points in each of his last three seasons with Dallas. With him eligible to test the unrestricted free agent market this summer, the Stars handed his negotiating rights to the Coyotes for the price of a 2016 fifth round pick.
