Karl Alzner will not play in Game 6 Sunday.

John Stevens will become the next head coach of the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings haven't issued their formal announcement yet, but Kings GM Rob Blake has already confirmed the decision, so consider it official. Stevens spent parts of four seasons as the Philadelphia Flyers' bench boss from 2006-2009 and posted a 120-109-34 record in that role. Under his leadership Philadelphia made it to the Eastern Conference Final in 2008. After his tenure with the Flyers ended, he joined the Los Angeles Kings where he's been serving as an assistant and more recently associate coach. He also briefly served as the Kings' interim head coach in 2011-12 during the period between the firing of Terry Murray and hiring of Darryl Sutter.

Matt Murray has not been on the ice since he suffered a lower body injury prior to Game 1 of the first round on April 12.

That does not bode well for Murray and it looks as if Marc-Andre Fleury will be between the pipes for Game 1 of the second round later this week. There is no timetable at this time for the return of Murray to the Penguins lineup.

Zach Werenski will miss the next four-to-six weeks with facial fractures.

While the Columbus Blue Jackets have been eliminated from the playoffs, Werenski would have played for the United States at the World Championships had he remained healthy. He required stitches on the outside and insides of his face in addition to fracturing his orbital bone and a bone inside his sinus cavity. Fortunately, he won't need additional surgery. Werenski, who is a finalist for the Calder Trophy, had 11 goals and 47 points this season in 78 games. Not too shabby for a teenage defenseman. He is a must have next season in fantasy hockey. The injury occurred in Game 3 against Pittsburgh and Werenski could not play in the remainder of the series.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet is reporting that Ilya Kovalchuk wants to return to the NHL.

Kovalchuk left the New Jersey Devils at the end of the 2012-13 season to play in his native Russia by 'retiring' from the NHL. The sniper is only 34 years of age and had 417 goals and 816 points in 816 games before bolting to the KHL. He may or may not return to New Jersey and if not, a team will have to pay the Devils a pretty penny. "The New Jersey Devils own his rights, he could sign and play for them no problem," said Friedman on Hockey Night in Canada. "If he wants to play for somebody else, technically all the other NHL teams would have to approve it. But here's the way that this I think is going to work: if he doesn't want to play for New Jersey or if New Jersey doesn't want him playing for them, and neither the agent nor the team is commenting on this, I think whoever gets him is going to work out either a sign and trade with New Jersey or they’re going to trade for his rights."

Oscar Klefbom didn't play in the third period on Saturday against San Jose because of an illness.

"It's important for us to get healthy before we get to Anaheim," said coach Todd McLellan after the game. The Oilers managed to record a 3-1 win over the Sharks in Game 6 without Klefbom, but his presence on the back end will be needed in Round 2 versus the Ducks.

Cam Talbot was the standout as the Edmonton Oilers eliminated the San Jose Sharks with a 3-1 win in Game 6 on Saturday night.

Talbot stopped 27 out of 28 shots in Game 6, holding strong in the second period in particular when he stopped all 12 shots he faced. He helped Edmonton win their first series since 2006 by posting a 2.03 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage.

Mats Zuccarello scored twice to lead the New York Rangers in a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 6 on Saturday.

Zuccarello had been fairly quiet in the first round series prior to Saturday's contest as he had one goal and no assists in five games, but he came through when the Rangers needed him the most. Thanks in part to his efforts, the Rangers are heading to the second round to face the winner of the series between the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators. Derek Stepan scored an empty-net goal to seal the game for New York. Kevin Hayes, J.T. Miller, Mika Zibanejad, Dan Girardi, and Ryan McDonagh each registered an assist.

Magnus Paajarvi scored the game-winning goal in Saturday’s 4-3 OT win over the Minnesota Wild.

He found the back of the net at the 9:42 mark of the extra frame. Not only did Paajarvi’s goal allow the Blues to win the game, it also allowed them to finish off their series against Minnesota in five games. Paajarvi finishes the first round with a goal and an assist in five contests. Vladimir Tarasenko, Alexander Steen and Paul Stastny also found the back of the net for St. Louis. The Blues will take on the Nashville Predators in the second round.

David Krejci's status for Game 6 against Ottawa is unclear.

Krejci suffered a lower-body injury on Friday night. The Bruins forward received treatment on Saturday, and he's considered day-to-day for now. Coach Bruce Cassidy said they'll find out more about his availability for Game 6 tomorrow morning.

Eric Staal was taken to hospital after crashing into the boards awkwardly on Saturday afternoon.

It was a scary incident. Staal came into the Blues zone with speed before firing a puck on goal. As he was skating towards the Blues net, his skate caught Jake Allen's pad, which caused him to crash into the boards awkwardly. Staal was down for a while, and he needed help getting off the ice. It's nice to hear he's in stable condition.
