Joe Thornton reportedly would like a three-year deal.

It could end up costing the Sharks between $15-to-17 million to keep Thornton in the fold. His first choice remains to stay with San Jose, but he can talk to other teams in late June before free agency opens on July 1. Thornton is expected to recover fully from his left knee injury. According to multiple sources most of the damage was to his MCL.

Erik Karlsson doesn't feel that his play has been limited because of an injury.

He didn't play for the final 25:55 of Game 5 against the Penguins, but said he didn't re-aggravate his foot injury. Karlsson admitted that he played through two hairline fractures in his left heel during Round 1. It's believed that he hasn't fully recovered from that issue. Karlsson, who has contributed just two assists in five games against the Penguins, will need to be at his best if the Senators want to avoid elimination on Tuesday night in Game 6.

Carl Hagelin has contributed one goal in nine playoff contests.

He has battled some injury issues during the postseason and he has been skating on the fourth line lately. Hagelin will likely stay in that role for Game 6 on Tuesday night. He had a much larger role last year when he posted 16 points in 24 appearances.

Josh Archibald is projected to be on the fourth line again on Tuesday night.

Scott Wilson said he was evaluated and cleared by the Penguins' team doctor.

He received an elbow from Ottawa's Tommy Wingels late in Game 5, but he feels fine and ready to go on Tuesday night. Wilson has played well alongside Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel lately and will probably stay there in Game 6. He has a goal and an assist in the past two games.

Filip Sandberg has signed a two-year contract with San Jose.

Sanberg registered 25 points and a plus-17 rating in 52 games with HV71 of the Swedish Hockey League in 2016-17. "Filip is a very creative player who sees the ice well and can create offense in limited space," said GM Doug Wilson. "He plays a high-pressure, puck-pursuit game and his battle level is something we have been impressed with, especially against older players. We are excited for him to join our organization."

Dylan Strome set a new Memorial Cup record with seven points in a 12-5 win over Saint John on Monday night.

He accounted for four goal and three assists in the contest. "I didn't even know it was a record to be honest with you," said Strome. "We're having fun, playing hockey and things were rolling for us but we expect a much different game against the Spitfires on Wednesday." The Otters have a 2-0 record in round robin play so far and Strome has eight points.

Ben Harpur could be in the lineup again for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Ottawa may decide to go with seven blueliners because Erik Karlsson and Cody Ceci are playing hurt. Karlsson and Ceci didn't finish Sunday's contest, so another defenseman in the lineup would serve as some insurance. Coach Guy Boucher is deciding between playing Harpur, Colin White or Chris Kelly.

Chris Kelly or Colin White might be in the lineup on Tuesday night for Game 6 against Pittsburgh.

May 23 - 12:41 PM

Ryan Dzingel will get back in the lineup on Tuesday night.
