Ales Hemsky appears as though he's ready to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

TSN's Bob McKenzie reports that the Senators offered him a three-year deal for about $10 million and it was turned down by the winger. McKenzie adds that Ottawa is willing to trade Hemsky's negotiation rights for a pick.

Ben Bishop struggled through a difficult outing Tuesday as he allowed five goals on 26 shots in just over two periods of work as the Lightning were handed a 7-3 defeat by the Rangers.

Bishop has mixed a couple of strong performances in amongst a few less-than-stellar ones so far in this series so it's anyone's guess which version of the netminder will show up for Friday's Game 7. Backup Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed one goal on seven shots in relief of Tampa Bay's starter.

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 36 of 39 shots Tuesday night as the Rangers cruised to a 7-3 victory over the Lightning.

King Henrik made a number of exceptional saves early in the contest to keep the score close and was rewarded when his teammates padded their lead in the final frame. The man known for his Game 7 heroics will get another opportunity in a series-deciding matchup Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

Ken Hitchcock will be back behind the bench in St. Louis for the 2015-16 season.

Coach Hitchcock has signed a one-year contract with the Blues after his future with the club was cloudy following another short playoff appearance. St. Louis has been incredibly successful during the regular season under Hitchcock, but he's won just one playoff series in four seasons.

The Anaheim Ducks are one win away from the 2015 Stanley Cup Final.

That's because Matt Beleskey scored 45 seconds into overtime Monday night to give the Ducks a 5-4 triumph over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks. The win gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven, Western Conference Final. Beleskey's goal was his seventh of the post-season. Ryan Kesler assisted on the goal. He also scored earlier in the game, giving him six goals and six assists in the playoffs. Kesler's goal, at 5:42 of the first period, gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead. They would go up 3-0 before the end of the period on a goal by Sami Vatanen, his third of the playoffs. Vatanen also had a pretty assist on a goal by Patrick Maroon, which gave the Ducks a 4-2 lead at 14:45 of the third period. Two goals by Chicago's Jonathan Toews, including one from a very tough angle at 19:22 of the third, led to overtime. But it was a short one, as Beleskey pounced on a rebound of a Kesler shot. Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf had two assists in the game and now has 17 in the playoffs.

Steve Stamkos scored a goal and an assist during Tampa Bay's 2-0 win in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Stamkos picked up the primary assist on Valtteri Filppula's opening goal, and the sniper scored a goal of his own later on in the second frame. After a very slow start to his postseason, Stamkos has suddenly caught fire. The 25-year-old now has seven points in his last four games and he has seven goals and 17 points in 18 playoff games in 2015. The Lightning are just one win away from going back to the Stanley Cup Final.

The Anaheim Ducks scored three goals in 37 seconds, becoming the second-fastest team to score three in the playoffs.

The 1979 Toronto Maple Leafs still hold the record as they scored three times in 23 seconds against the Atlanta Flames, in which Chicago coach Joel Quenneville picked up an assist on the third Leaf goal. Matt Beleskey scored the middle goal for the Ducks and now has six in the playoffs after scoring all five in the second round against the Calgary Flames.

Antoine Vermette scored the game-winning goal in the Blackhawks’ 5-4 double-overtime triumph against the Ducks on Saturday night.

A healthy scratch in Game 3, Vermette is the reason the Western Conference final is shifting to Anaheim tied up at two. His gaffe, along with Kimmo Timonen’s, also led to a Ducks goal in the third period, but he atoned for that mistake big time. Brandon Saad (goal, two assists), Jonathan Toews (goal, assist), Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane notched the other goals for Chicago. At one point in the third period, Chicago had a 3-1 lead … however, that ended up being short-lived and it went down 4-3 after giving up three goals in 37 seconds, before tying the game on Kane's power-play goal.

Ken Hitchcock is likely to remain the coach of the Blues next season, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

"The word we’re getting out of St. Louis is that barring anything dramatic happening, Ken Hitchcock will be back as coach of the Blues next year," Friedman said on Hockey Night in Canada. Hitchcock has coached the Blues for four seasons, helping lead them to the playoffs in each one. The catch is that the Blues have been knocked out in the first round the past two seasons.

Former Oilers interim coach Todd Nelson has been granted permission to seek coaching jobs elsewhere, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Of course, Nelson was the interim before the Oilers hired Todd McLellan. Now, he will see what else is out there, as his goal is to become a full-time coach. Edmonton went 17-25-9 under Nelson. Friedman says the Oilers would like Nelson to return as an assistant or in some other capacity within the organization, and they’ll check in with him in a couple weeks.

Devan Dubnyk and the Wild will discuss a contract extension this week, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

The Wild acquired Dubnyk in January, and all he did was post some of the best numbers in the NHL: 27-9-2 record, a 1.78 goals-against average and .936 save percentage. "The Minnesota Wild and Dubnyk will sit down with his agent this week to talk to see if they can work out a contract with the goalie who had a great second half of the year," Friedman said during Hockey Night in Canada. Dubnyk made $800,000 this past season.

Much like New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault on the subject of possibly sitting Henrik Lundqvist earlier in the series, Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper shot down the notion of benching Ben Bishop.

In fact, Cooper called the idea "asinine." On one hand, that makes sense, as Bishop is a big-money goalie who's had some great moments in the playoffs. That said, he's looked vulnerable lately, and the Bolts have a nice backup option in Andrei Vasilevskiy.
