David Krejci is off to a great start this postseason, which has many people remembering his superb play during the Bruins' Stanley Cup run in 2011.

He led the NHL in points (23) and goals (12) that year and that's what he's currently doing again in the 2013. Krejci is tied with Chicago's Patrick Sharp for first with five goals and he leads all skaters with 10 points after four games against Toronto heading into Friday night's playoff matches. "He's a playoff performer. He seems to love the intensity, the excitement of it (and) he comes up big in those situations, " coach Claude Julien said. "It's always nice to have those kinds of players on your team and so far David's always been a good playoff performer for us. It's a good thing he's on our team." In 63 career postseason appearances, he has racked up 57 points.

Kris Letang didn't take part in Penguins practice on Sunday.

Letang didn't meet the media and coach Mike Sullivan didn't provide an update on his status. All signs point to Letang being available for Game 1, but we won't know for sure until tomorrow. The 29-year-old has two goals and 10 points in 17 postseason games in 2016. The Pens can't afford to be without Letang under normal circumstances, but the fact that Trevor Daley (ankle) isn't available makes him even more important.

Matt Cullen left practice Saturday a few minutes early and did not return.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review stated that Cullen seemed to be walking 'gingerly' back to the locker room. If there is anything wrong, it should be updated either Sunday or Monday, otherwise assume he will be in the Pittsburgh lineup for Game 1 Monday.

David Backes hopes to sign a new deal with St. Louis.

"No question this is home. We've been here 10 years and this is what we consider home. I don't know anything else," said Backes. "Hopefully it all works out, but it is the unfortunate side of sports that guys staying with one team is rare but maybe I'm one of those rare guys. That would be great." He can become an unrestricted free agent in July, but he has said all along that he wants to stay with the only team that he has played for during his NHL career.

Jonathan Drouin wants to be back with the Lightning next season.

"I definitely want to be here," Drouin said. "I love the way this ended, I guess, with this different and weird year. ... It's definitely somewhere I want to play." Drouin had a strong finish to the season when he scored in two straight games prior to the playoffs. In the postseason, he registered five goals and 14 points in 17 outings. "He makes us a better team. It's as simple as that," GM Steve Yzerman said. "What he showed me, I think the best thing for this team right now is Jonathan Drouin on it."

Marc-Andre Fleury may be struggling as the backup goalie in Pittsburgh.

Fleury has started only one game in the playoffs (Game 5 in the third round against Tampa Bay) after suffering a concussion on April 2. He started backing up Matt Murray on May 2 and has mostly kept that position ever since. The Pittsburgh's Tribune-Review Rob Rossi interviewed former Penguin Maxime Talbot and Talbot said that he speaks to Fleury between games. "I could only guess how hard the games are for him," Talbot said. "But ‘Flower' is the best guy. You see him on the bench, smiling, talking to Murray during breaks. I know he's happy for the guys in the room. I know he's trying to do whatever he can to help them win. It's different."

Steven Stamkos may have played his last game with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Penguins eliminated the Lightning in Game 7 on Thursday night and Stamkos made a surprise return to the lineup. He is eligible for unrestricted free agency in July, but he has expressed plenty of interest in staying with Tampa Bay and hopes that something can be worked out for that to happen.

Zach Parise is doing well in his recovery from a season-ending back injury.

"I'm happy [with] the way it's going because I'm able to do what I normally would do had nothing happened," Parise said. "That's why I'm really optimistic and feeling really good about it." He opted for rehabilitation instead of surgery and hopes to be ready for the World Cup of Hockey in September.

Bryan Rust, the Penguins' 24-year-old rookie third liner, scored two huge goals on Thursday night to push the Pens past Tampa Bay 2-1 and onto the Stanley Cup Final.

Rust now has five goals and eight points in 17 playoff games this season. It's only the eighth time in playoff history where a rookie has had multiple points in a Game 7. Martin Jones and the Sharks now have Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel and Rust to keep an eye on, the latter of which has a three-game points streak going into Game 1 on Monday.

Chris Phillips has formally announced his retirement.

"Chris’ trademark leadership, determination, hard work, and resilience as a hockey player gave our city and our fans the opportunity to witness an impressive 19 year journey in the National Hockey League," said Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. "Chris’ commitment to our team and our city places him among one of the greatest players to don a Senators uniform. He will forever hold a special place in the history of our hockey club. Chris, his wife Erin and their children Ben, Zoe and Niomi will always be part of our Senators family and I look forward to their ongoing involvement with our team, our community and various foundations." Phillips is the Senators' leader in games played with 1,179. Unfortunately he wasn't able to participate in 2015-16 though due to a cracked vertebrae. Although he was more of a defensive defenseman, he did score 71 goals and 288 points over the course of his career. He also served as an alternate captain for roughly a decade.

Forward Joel Ward scored two goals to help the San Jose Sharks defeat the visiting St. Louis Blues 5-2 Wednesday night and advance to the Stanley Cup Championship Series for the first time in their history.

The Sharks coasted to the victory, grabbing a 4-0 lead before the Blues could break San Jose's shutout bid with a goal at 11:39 of the third period. Ward's goals were his fifth and sixth of the postseason. He also netted two in the Sharks' 6-3 triumph over the Blues in St. Louis on Monday. Logan Couture also had a big night for San Jose Wednesday, notching three points -- two assists and an empty-net goal. He assisted on Ward's second goal, which gave the Sharks a 3-0 lead early in the third. Couture then assisted on the Sharks' fourth goal, scored by Joonas Donskoi, his fifth of the postseason. Couture's goal, at 19:40 of the third period, was his eighth of the postseason. He also has 16 assists. Joe Pavelski opened the scoring at 3:57 of the first period with his 15th goal of the playoffs. The Sharks won the Western Conference Final in six games. They will face the Eastern Conference Final winner -- Pittsburgh or Tampa Bay -- in the Stanley Cup Final.
