Evgeny Kuznetsov picked up a goal and two assists in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Kuznetsov registered the primary assists on goals by Tom Wilson (1-0) and Alex Ovechkin (3-0) before he added an empty-netter late in the game. The 25-year-old finished the game with a plus-3 rating, two penalty minutes and four shots on goal in 20:44 of ice time. Kuznetsov now has three goals and two assists in four games this postseason. After dropping the first two games of the series on home ice, the Capitals managed to win back-to-back games in Columbus. Game 5 will be played in Washington on Saturday afternoon.

Brad Marchand scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Bruins' top line still managed to damage even though Patrice Bergeron (upper body) didn't play. Marchand gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead at the 16:55 mark of the second frame, and they never looked back. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and one hit in 20:25 of ice time. The 29-year-old has been a machine in this series, as he's picked up two goals and five assists in four games. The Bruins now have a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 5 will be played in Boston on Saturday night.

P.K. Subban has been chosen as one of the nominees for the Norris Trophy.

He had 16 goals and 59 points in 82 games during the regular season. The 28-year-old also finished with a plus-18 rating and 82 penalty minutes. Los Angeles' Drew Doughty and Tampa Bay's Victor Hedman are the other two nominees for the award.

Riley Nash will center Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak in Game 4 against Toronto on Thursday night.

Nash is getting bumped to the top line because Patrice Bergeron (upper body) is unable to suit up tonight. The 28-year-old made his 2018 postseason debut in Game 3 after missed the first two games of the series because of an injury of his own. Nash had no points in that game. This news makes him an intriguing option in daily fantasy leagues.

Patrice Bergeron will not suit up in Game 4 against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

This is a surprising development. Bergeron is the center of Boston's top line, which is arguably the best trio in the NHL with Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. Not having the 32-year-old is the lineup is huge for the Bruins, who lead the best-of-seven series 2-1. Based on the line rushes during the pre-game warmup, Riley Nash will take his spot on the first line. Bergeron has no goals, five assists and a plus-4 rating this postseason.

Ryan Hartman has been issued a one-game suspension for hitting Colorado's Carl Soderberg in the head.

The incident happened in the third period of Wednesday's game. The NHL felt Hartman chose a poor angle to deliver his check and made Soderberg's head the main point of contact when it was avoidable. Hartman won't be allowed to play on Friday as a result.

Patric Hornqvist (upper body) won't return for Game 5.

As previously reported, Hornqvist missed Thursday's practice, but the silver lining is that he did skate on his own before that. Dominik Simon will stay on the top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel due to Hornqvist's absence.

Andrew Hammond will be the Avalanche's starter for Game 5 on Friday.

This wasn't the plan, but Semyon Varlamov and now Jonathan Bernier are both injured, so the Avalanche's hands are tied. At least the Avalanche have a third-string goaltender with a bit of playoff experience, even if it's not a lot. Hammond has a 3.00 GAA and .921 save percentage in three career postseason games.

Ryan Hartman will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday for an illegal check to the head on Colorado's Carl Soderberg.

The incident occurred in the third period of Wednesday's contest and it landed Hartman in the penalty box for two minutes on a charging call. Hartman piled up six minutes in the sin bin in Game 4.

With the Ducks eliminated from the 2018 playoffs, Francois Beauchemin's playing career has ended.

San Jose earned a 2-1 win over Anaheim Wednesday night to complete the four-game sweep of the first round series. It's certainly not the exit Beauchemin was hoping for. "Really disappointing obviously," Beauchemin said. "I don’t think anybody saw that coming. We played so well the last 15, 20 games of the regular season. It felt like we didn’t really have the push to give during that series." Regardless, Beauchemin had a great career that spanned 903 games between his stints with Anaheim, Colorado, Toronto, and Columbus. He also appeared in an additional 101 playoff contests and won the Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007. He was a workhorse throughout his career and his average playing time in a regular season game was 23:35 minutes.

Tomas Hertl scored a goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The victory means that the Sharks have swept the Ducks in four straight games. Moments after Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf turned the puck over in his own end, Hertl tipped a Marc-Edouard Vlasic shot by John Gibson to give the Sharks a 2-1 advantage. Hertl has now found the back of the net in three consecutive games. The 24-year-old is up to three goals and four points in four games during the postseason. San Jose will now face the Vegas Golden Knights in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
