Tuukka Rask stopped all 27 shots in a shutout of the Chicago Blackhawks to help the Boston Bruins take a 2-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup final.

The Blackhawks didn't test him much and the Bruins defensemen kept Chicago's forwards to the outside much of the time, but Rask was clearly locked in from the drop of the puck. Rask also did a very good job of controlling rebounds and got a little help from the post on a Bryan Bickell shot in the final minutes of the third period. It was another strong performance to add to Rask's potential Conn Smythe resume.

Updating a recent post, it sounds like Henrik Zetterberg will be a game-time decision for Thursday night.

Coach Mike Babcock said he was "hopeful" that Zetterberg would return for Game 4, but he won't know the status of his captain until after the pregame warmup. Zetterberg is slated to have a doctor's appointment after the morning skate.

Henrik Zetterberg (back) will reportedly return to Detroit's lineup on Thursday night in Game 4 versus Boston.

According to sources, Ken Campbell of the Hockey News is reporting that Zetterberg will play "limited minutes" Thursday after having back surgery on Feb. 21. The Wings captain took part in practice drills with teammates for the first time on Wednesday. Campbell said the range for ice time for Zetterberg would be 10-12 minutes and we would expect most of that to come on the power play, where Detroit has gone 0-for-9 in the series.

Matt Cooke was assessed a seven-game suspension for his knee-on-knee hit on Colorado's Tyson Barrie on Monday night in Game 3.

He has the right to appeal the suspension to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman within 48 hours and if that ruling is upheld then he can appeal to a neutral arbitrator within seven days. Depending on what happens during that process, it could take too long for him to be able to return before the end of the first round. If Minnesota doesn't advance into Round 2 then Cooke's suspension will carry over into the 2014-15 regular season.

Ryan Getzlaf didn't play Wednesday night because of an upper-body injury.

The Ducks list him as day-to-day and it's unclear if he'll be ready to play in Game 5 on Friday night when the series shifts back to Anaheim. Neither team has been able to win on the road yet and having Getzlaf back would certainly help the Ducks' chances of keeping that trend going against the pesky Dallas Stars.

Nick Foligno played hero for the Blue Jackets Wednesday as his overtime winner sealed a 4-3 victory over the Penguins.

In one of the best games of the young postseason, Columbus fell behind 3-0 in the first period of this contest only to tie it in the final minute before Foligno capped things off. Ryan Johansen, Brandon Dubinsky and Boone Jenner all scored goals for the Jackets, who have now drawn even with Pittsburgh in the series through four games.

Ryan Murray (undisclosed) is officially listed as a scratch on Wednesday.

That was expected after Murray didn't take part in the pregame warmups. Murray also wasn't able to participate in the team's full Wednesday morning skate. He has an assist in three playoff games and was averaging 25:17 minutes per contest.

Teemu Selanne will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday.

Selanne was given just two shifts in the third period of Game 3. The 43-year-old is a future Hall of Famer, but he's seen his role significantly reduced this season. He has already stated that this will be his last season.

Nathan MacKinnon is one of the three finalists for the Calder Trophy.

MacKinnon is competing with two Lightning forwards - Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson - for the rookie of the year award. MacKinnon is the frontrunner for this honor after he led all rookies with 63 points in 82 games. He also scored 24 goals, including five game-winners.

Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are expected to remain on the same line for Game 4 on Wednesday night.

They were reunited, along with Bryan Bickell, in Game 3 after seeing some time together earlier in the series. "There is just lots of confidence there. We know what to expect," Toews said. "We know that every shift we go out there that we can get that puck possession and create stuff. The more we create, eventually it’s going to go in." That trio helped the Blackhawks earn the Stanley Cup last year and they'll try to help Chicago even up their series with St. Louis on Wednesday.

Ben Bishop won't get a chance to play in the postseason now that the Tampa Bay Lightning have been eliminated.

"Extremely frustrating, you can't really put it into words," Bishop said of missing the playoffs. "It's been real tough to have to watch." The Montreal Canadiens completed a four-game sweep of the Bolts on Tuesday night. Bishop missed the entire series because of an arm injury, which was reported as his elbow. He was excellent during the regular season and Tampa sorely missed his presence in the playoffs. Bishop posted a 37-14-7 record with a .924 save percentage and a 2.23 goals-against average.

Martin St. Louis powered the Rangers past the Flyers by a score of 4-1 on Tuesday night with a goal and an assist.

St. Louis deflected Dan Girardi's point shot past Ray Emery in the second period, and the goal stood up to be the winner. The Rangers steamrolled the Flyers much like they did at home in Game 1. St. Louis has put his post-trade struggles behind him and is riding a five game point streak where he has two goals and seven assists.
