Phil Kessel will have a hearing over the phone with the league Tuesday afternoon for his stick-swinging incidents in Sunday's preseason game against Buffalo.

Kessel hit Sabres enforcer John Scott with two big slashes and a stick jab to the pants after the behemoth forward dropped his gloves and tried to jump him off a faceoff. He will probably say he acted in self-defense, but it was unnecessary that Kessel came back at Scott to poke him with his stick once the melee that broke out had died down. The Leafs and Kessel's fantasy owners will be hoping that any supplemental discipline he receives will be a suspension for the rest of the preseason or a fine.

Frederik Andersen is projected to play between the pipes again on Friday.

Andersen stopped 32 of 35 shots in Anaheim's 4-3 victory over Dallas in their playoff opener on Wednesday. Obviously, the fact that they're sticking with Andersen doesn't bode well for Jonas Hiller, who might not be offered a contract extension before his current deal runs out this summer.

T.J. Oshie is skating Friday morning with a few players who did not play Thursday night against Chicago.

He has been skating on his own this week as he awaits clearance to participate in contact practices. At least Oshie seems to be getting closer to a return. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Steve Mason (upper body) took part in Friday's practice.

"It's my first time on the ice in a couple days, and it's a good step," Mason said."I felt good." He faced shots during the morning skate and might be ready to return on Sunday. He missed the Flyers' final regular season game and playoff opener.

Alexander Steen's goal 26 seconds into the third overtime period gave the Blues a 4-3 win over Chicago in Game 1 of their first round playoff series Thursday night.

Steen knocked a nifty little pass from Steve Ott into the back of the net soon after the third extra frame began and sent the Blues fans home happy. Adam Cracknell, Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz also scored for St. Louis in the thrilling victory. If the rest of the series is as exciting as this game, it could lead to widespread heart attacks for fans of both teams.

Ondrej Palat (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Friday's contest against Montreal.

He left Game 1 because an undisclosed injury, which is believed to be to his upper-body region. The outstanding rookie logged 14:05 of ice time before exiting early in the third period.

Steve Mason (upper body) is feeling better, according to Flyers coach Craig Berube.

He is projected to join the team in New York on Friday, which is a good sign. However, he won't be in the lineup Thursday for Game 1 against the Rangers and his status for Game 2 is still unclear.

Antti Niemi will start in Game 1 against Los Angeles.

The Sharks made some waves when they didn't immediately name their starter for Thursday's playoff opener, but it shouldn't come as a surprise that Niemi will get the nod.

Ryan Getzlaf (face) is expected to play in Game 2 on Friday night.

He suffered a deep facial laceration after he was struck in the face by a shot from Dallas' Tyler Seguin with just 16.4 seconds left in the third period. Fortunately, his X-rays came back negative.
Apr 17 - 1:52 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko (hand) will suit up for the Blues on Thursday night against Chicago in their playoff opener.

He was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, here he skated with Vladimir Sobotka and Jaden Schwartz. Tarasenko hasn't played since Mar. 15 because of a hand injury, which required surgery to repair.
Apr 17 - 1:04 PM

T.J. Oshie (upper body) won't play in Game 1 against Chicago on Thursday.

He missed the last two games of the regular season after receiving an illegal check to the head from Minnesota's Michael Rupp. Oshie has been skating with the Blues, but he hasn't been cleared for contact yet.
Apr 17 - 12:50 PM

Ondrej Palat was forced to leave Tampa Bay's playoff opener in the third period with an undisclosed injury.

He was seen walking around the locker room after the team's overtime loss and there wasn't an update on his status. Palat had an upper-body injury at the end of the regular season after a hard hit made contact with his head and there may have been a re-injury there. It was also speculated during the game telecast that he might have been hurt when he banged knees with Montreal's P.K. Subban. Consider him day-to-day for now.
