NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman expects next year's salary cap is projected to be $71.5 million.

The 2014-15 cap was $69 million. The weak Canadian dollar is obviously a big reason why the cap isn't going up even more next year. It will be interesting to see what the final number will be as we approach the beginning of next season.

Dale Weise (undisclosed) is taking part in Sunday's pre-game warmup.

Weise didn't take part in the team's morning skate, but coach Michel Therrien said that he should be available for duty tonight. We'll keep an eye on Weise's situation as we get closer to puck-drop, but expect him to play.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said that Las Vegas, Seattle and Quebec City have shown interest in getting an expansion team.

Bettman also added that there is no team in danger of being relocated. Many experts believe that Las Vegas may be the next team in line to get a team, but that obviously hasn't been confirmed yet. The Commissioner also mentioned that it's up to the board of governors to decide when expansion will occur.

Reports have surfaced that the Toronto Maple Leafs approached former Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli about their vacant General Manager position.

The Leafs were simply doing their due diligence here, as Chiarelli is one of the better General Managers in the league. Chiarelli eventually settled on the Edmonton job and that's probably the better gig. The Oilers have some good young talent on the roster, some interesting prospects in their farm system, and the first overall pick in the June Entry Draft.

Carey Price will get the start in Sunday's game six matchup against the Ottawa Senators.

This isn't exactly breaking news. Price has been the best goaltender in the world this year, but he allowed five goals in game five. The Canadiens will need their goaltender to be all-world again on Sunday if they want to bury the Senators once and for all. Ottawa did a good job of getting bodies in front of Price in their last game, and they will look to do that again.

The Minnesota Wild have scratched Erik Haula, Niklas Backstrom, Sean Bergenheim, Nate Prosser and Jordan Schroeder for Sunday's game against St. Louis.

Also scratched are black aces Jonathan Blum, Ryan Carter, John Curry, Christian Folin, Kurtis Gabriel, Tyler Graovac, Zack Mitchell, Gustav Olafsson, Brett Sutter and Stephane Veilleux. The Wild currently lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 over the Blues.

Olli Jokinen, Roberto Bortuzzo and Marcel Goc will be scratched in Sunday's tilt against the Minnesota Wild.

No surprises here. The Blues need to win this game to keep their season alive. They currently trail 3-2 in this first round series.
Apr 26 - 3:14 PM

Jori Lehtera will play in Sunday's game six tilt against the Minnesota Wild.

Lehtera (lower body) missed game five because of an injury, but his return to the lineup should give the Blues a boost. He was skating on a line with Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko. The Blues need to win to keep their season alive.
Apr 26 - 3:12 PM

Jake Allen will get the start in Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Allen wasn't very good in game five, but he will get the call in the biggest game of the season. The Blues are facing elimination in Minnesota and they will need their goaltender to be solid if they want to extend the series. Allen has a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage in the 2015 playoffs.
Apr 26 - 2:51 PM

Jori Lehtera (lower body) is on the ice for the pre-game warmup.

That's a good sign for both Lehtera and the Blues. The 27-year-old missed game five because of the injury, so it's encouraging to see him out on the ice before the game. We'll keep you up to date on his situation as we get closer to puck-drop.

Scott Wilson has been assigned to the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins in the AHL.

Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate currently has a 2-0 series lead against the Syracuse Crunch. Getting reinforcements from the NHL will only help their playoff run. The 23-year-old had no points in three playoff games in 2015.
Apr 26 - 2:41 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned Brian Dumoulin to the AHL.

Dumoulin played relatively well when called upon with the big club. He will now head to Wilkes Barre for their AHL playoff run. The 23-year-old had one point in eight regular season games, and no points in the post-season for Pittsburgh.
Apr 26 - 2:39 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned Taylor Chorney to the minors.

Chorney was inserted into the Penguins playoff lineup because of the many injuries they had on defense. The 27-year-old had no points in five playoff games for Pittsburgh. He will help the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins in their first round series against the Syracuse Crunch.
Apr 26 - 2:36 PM

Devan Dubnyk will get the start in Sunday's game six tilt against the St. Louis Blues.

The Wild have an opportunity to put the Blues away in Minnesota. It will be interesting to see how the Wild respond on home ice. The last time these two teams played in Minnesota, the Blues won by a score of 6-1. Dubnyk has a 3-2 record with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage in the 2015 playoffs.
Apr 26 - 2:29 PM

Head Coach Barry Trotz confirmed that Curtis Glencross will play in game seven against the Islanders.

Glencross was acquired from Calgary before the trade deadline, but he has been a healthy scratch in the last three games of this series.
