Karlsson led all defenders in assists and points this season, and ranked fourth-best among blue liners with a 7.2 Corsi relative percentage.

The Anaheim Ducks have fired head coach Bruce Boudreau.

Boudreau has a 1-7 record in Game 7s and you can debate whether or not he's to blame for that or even if that was on the Ducks' minds when they decided to fire him, but it would be hard to argue there's not a clear link between that record and Anaheim's decision to let him go. The reality is that the Ducks have seen four straight playoff runs end in a Game 7 loss and if Anaheim had won one or two of those, thus allowing them to go further into the playoffs, perhaps that would have been enough to save Boudreau. Because if nothing else, this can't be about his regular season results. Sure the Ducks got off to a rough start in the 2015-16 campaign, but they rebounded in a big way. Anaheim had a 208-104-40 regular season record under Boudreau and have won their division for four straight years under him. They just couldn't get it done in the playoffs, which was also the case with Washington when Boudreau was overseeing them.

T.J. Oshie came through in a gigantic way for the Washington Capitals on Thursday night, scoring the overtime winner in Game 1 against Pittsburgh, his third goal of the game.

In 36 career playoff games, Oshie's team had never won when he's scored in the post-season. Oshie halted the streak in tremendous fashion in his seventh post-season game for the Capitals, lighting the lamp at three crucial moments during a tense Game 1. The Penguins and Capitals tangle again for Game 2 on Saturday night.

Brooks Orpik (upper body) is expected to be in the lineup for Game 1 against the Penguins.

Orpik was injured in Game 3 of Washington's first round series against the Flyers after he was hit by Ryan White. It appears as though he's good to go ahead of tonight's game against Pittsburgh. Orpik is currently on the ice for warmups and he's skating on a pairing with John Carlson.

Brooks Orpik (upper body) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

That being said, it sounds like the odds are in favor of Orpik playing. It would be his first contest since April 18.

Braden Holtby is a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.

Holtby tied the NHL's season-single wins record with 48 and he also posted a 2.20 GAA and .922 save percentage in 66 starts. There's a good chance he'll end up with the award after a season like that. "He's been as consistent as any goaltender in the Nationals Hockey League this year," coach Barry Trotz said. "He's gotten a lot of attention for that not only from the records side. But you don't put a record together like that if you have areas where you haven't been that good for long periods of time, so he's been pretty solid all year." Holtby will be competing with Jonathan Quick and Ben Bishop.

Zach Parise had been playing with a herniated disk in his lower back for three months before a hit on April 5 took him out of the lineup.

"I don't know if you've ever had nerve pain, but it doesn't feel very good," said Parise. "It's been really scary, some of the things that I was feeling. There was a lot of pain and just some of the things that were happening, it was a little eye-opening." He is hoping to avoid off-season back surgery with therapy and rehab. Parise believes he has made positive progress with that path so far and feels like he'll be training normally by midsummer. He still wants to play for the United States in the World Cup of Hockey in September.

Andrew Ladd can become an unrestricted free agent in July, but he appears to be open to giving the Blackhawks a discount on his services.

"I'm at the point in my career where I can make decisions based on being in a good situation and at the end of the day, I don't think it's all about money for me," Ladd, said. "It's about being in a good place for my family and being on a team that's going to contend every year. You'd be crazy not to want to be a part of this group, this organization and we'll see what happens." He made $4.5 million this past season and he could demand much more than that on the open market.

The only puck to get past him was a Ryan Kesler one-timer on a power-play. The 33-year-old stopped 60-of-62 shots in Games 6 and 7. He carries a 2.45 GAA and .915 save percentage into the second round.
