Ed Jovanovski (hip) isn't expected to be available for the Panthers' season opener.

Jovanovski was limited to just six games last season due to the injury. "He's still rehabbing and is getting better every day," Panthers GM Dale Tallon said. "It's a matter of when he feels he can contribute and get into the physicality of the game." Tallon estimated that Jovanovski will be ready to return in about three to four weeks.

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Lightning in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Crosby picked up the primary assist on Phil Kessel's first period, power play goal. He then extended the Penguins' lead to 3-0 with his goal at the 19:34 mark of the second period. Crosby finished the game with four shots on goal, a plus-2 rating and two hits in 18:09 of ice time. The Pens captain six goals and 15 points in 17 postseason games in 2016. Kris Letang, Bryan Rust and Nick Bonino also found the back of the net for the Penguins. Game 7 will take place in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. The winner will advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

Kevan Miller has agreed to a four-year, $10 million contract extension with the Boston Bruins.

That represents a big raise over Miller's previous contract, which paid him $1.6 million over two years. Miller had five goals, 13 assists, and 53 penalty minutes in 71 games last season. The 28-year-old blueliner has 159 NHL games under his belt.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will start Matt Murray in Game 6 on Tuesday.

Marc-Andre Fleury got his first start of the playoffs on Sunday, but he allowed four goals on 25 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss. Although Murray similarly struggled in Game 4, he's the goaltender that's gotten Pittsburgh this far in the playoffs, so it's not surprising to see the Penguins go back to him when facing elimination.

Joe Pavelski scored two goals and added an assist as the San Jose Sharks defeated the Blues 6-3 in St. Louis Monday night.

The victory gave the Sharks a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference Final. The Sharks can win the best-of-seven series and earn a berth to the Stanley Cup Final if they beat the Blues in Game 6 in San Jose Wednesday night. Pavelski, who now has 13 goals and nine assists in the playoffs, wasn't the only three-point producer for the Sharks Monday. Joe Thornton also had three points, all assists. He now has 14 assists in the postseason. Thornton and Pavelski both assisted on the game-opening goal by defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic at 3:51 of the opening period. Vlasic's goal was his first of the postseason. The Sharks tied the game at 2-2 on a goal by Joel Ward (third of the playoffs) at 4:37 of the second period. Vlasic assisted on the Ward goal, which came on a power play. Pavelski tied the game again at 3-3 on another San Jose power play goal at 18:33 of the second. It was all Sharks in the third period. They got goals from Pavelski, Chris Tierney and Ward again to make it a 6-3 final.

St. Louis star David Backes, who was questionable for Game 5 of the Western Conference Final Monday night because of an upper-body ailment, is indeed in the Blues' lineup against the San Jose Sharks.

Steven Stamkos (blood clot) doesn't think he'll be ready for Game 6 on Tuesday night.

He said Sunday that he didn't believe there would be updates in the next few days, so he is unlikely to be available. Stamkos participated in Sunday's skate, but he didn't play in Game 5 versus Pittsburgh.

David Backes (upper body) will take part in Monday's pregame warmup.

However, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock wouldn't say if Backes will play in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final versus San Jose. "We're going to dress the same lineup for warmup that we did the last game," Hitchcock said. "We had two extra forwards in there and one extra (defenseman). No changes, all those players are there. They'll dress for warmup and then we'll run a further evaluation after warmup." Backes played for just 5:34 on Saturday due to an upper-body injury, but he is a possibility to play Monday.

Martin Jones is expected to get the nod in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final on Monday night after he was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate.

He was pulled on Saturday after he surrendered four goals on 19 shots. Jones posted two straight shutouts against St. Louis before struggling in Game 4. He has a 2.07 goal-against average and a .921 save percentage in 16 playoff starts.

We should know more about Pavel Datsyuk's status between June 6-16, according to his agent.

Datsyuk will reportedly meet with Detroit GM Ken Holland early to mid-June. "He would like to leave, but at the same time, he wants to make sure the Wings have options," said Datsyuk's agent, Dan Milstein. "He wants to help the team any way he can with the salary cap issue." The only thing that can solve that is if he gets traded to another club willing to absorb his $7.5 million cap hit.

Nikita Kucherov chose an excellent time to break out offensively in the Eastern Conference Final.

He scored for the first time in the series in the second period to tie the game at 2-2 and found the back of the net again late in the third to even the match at 3-3. The Lightning won Game 5 by a score of 4-3 in overtime and Kucherov also had an assist on Tyler Johnson's winner for a three-point effort. He leads the postseason in goals with 11 and sits second overall in points with 19 in 15 outings.
