Jared Cowen doesn't appear to be hopeful that he'll play during the postseason.

"I want to play hockey, but I don't think that's going to happen right now," he said. "I care about the playoffs. I want to play, but you can't come in here every day with the mindset of a guy that's going to play. It's going to burn me out or drive me crazy." His only chance of getting back into the lineup for the first time since Mar. 29 will probably be if an injury occurs.

Mark Barberio will probably be back in the press box on Tuesday, along with Jonathan Drouin.

Tampa Bay had the same forward lines and defensive pairings at Monday's practice and if they remain intact for Game 3 then Barberio and Drouin will be scratched for three straight games each. Coach Jon Cooper plans to play them at some point, though. "The longer this playoffs go on, everyone's going to get in at some point," he said. "It's just a matter of when."

Tampa Bay has surrendered just 38 shots on goal after two games against Detroit.

"It's a little bit more attention to detail," Cooper said. "Guys are really back-pressuring hard. Coming back, they're coming back as a group, and they're committed. It's not so much a skill set playing D, it's a mental thing. And they've been really committed. That's what's helped us out." The 19 shots against per game is the lowest in the playoffs with Game 3 slated for Tuesday night in Detroit.
Apr 21 - 9:26 AM

Jason Garrison (upper body) is not expected to play in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

"Doubtful," coach Jon Cooper said. "He's probably out." Garrison feels like he's moving into "day-to-day" status though and Cooper said the defenseman will probably be closer to being a game-time decision after Tuesday's match.

Torrey Mitchell co-leads the Montreal Canadiens in scoring during the playoffs.

He picked up two assists in Game 3 to give him three points in the team's opening round series versus Ottawa. Mitchell is also tied for the club lead with a plus-4 rating. The Canadiens have received plenty of scoring depth this far with just three players on their roster, who have played in all three playoff matches and failed to earn a point. Defensemen Jeff Petry and Tom Gilbert as well as rookie Jacob De La Rose have been held off the scoresheet.
Apr 21 - 9:05 AM

Jonathan Ericsson is nursing a lower-body injury, but he's expected to play Tuesday in Game 3.

He didn't take to the ice on Monday for practice and he didn't skate last Friday before Game 2 either. Ericsson has six hits, one shot and an even plus-minus rating, while averaging 20:04 of ice time in two postseason contests.

Adam Lowry is currently the Winnipeg Jets' team leader in points through three games this postseason.

With a goal and two assists, it's great to see the rookie finding his stride when the games mean the most. But if Adam Lowry is your points leader, there are serious flaws in your lineup that need to be addressed.
Apr 21 - 1:54 AM

Tyler Myers' imprint on Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim was vast, including a timely goal across a game-leading 26:12 of work.

Myers has been everything and more for the Jets since coming over from Buffalo. Along with his goal, he registered three other shots, three blocks, and two hits. Believe it or not, Myers has been around long enough to have played in Buffalo's two previous playoffs as well. He now has three goals and eight points in 16 career postseason matches.
Apr 21 - 1:51 AM

Andrew Ladd did all he could, but the Jets still found a way to fall to the Ducks 5-4 in overtime. Giving Anaheim a commanding 3-0 series lead.

Ladd didn't record a point, but he did co-lead the team in shots with six (Bryan Little), and lead all skaters with 12 hits, plus two blocks and takeaways during his 21:07 of work. He spent 5:24 of his time on special teams, as well. Through three games these playoffs, the Jets' captain is still pointless, though he has eight goals and 15 points in 56 career playoff games.
Apr 21 - 1:47 AM

Lee Stempniak snapped Winnipeg's 19 year goal drought with a rebound marker mid way through the first period. Unfortunately, the Ducks would go on to win the game 5-4 in overtime.

Stempniak got the party started as he put home an Adam Lowry rebound midway through the first period. The goal is Stempniak's seventh overall goal with the Jets in 21 games since coming over at the trade deadline from the New York Rangers. He now has three goals and six points in 27 career playoff games with the Coyotes, Penguins, and now Jets.
Apr 21 - 1:44 AM

Bryan Little scored his first career playoff goal, giving the Jets a 4-3 lead with 22:42 to go in the game.

Little's goal was brilliant and beautiful as he intercepted a Cam Fowler exit-pass and ripped a slapper past Frederik Andersen late in the second. Little also co-lead all skaters with six shots (Andrew Ladd) and added three hits across his 19:48 of work.
Apr 21 - 1:38 AM

Ondrej Pavelec led the charge to break Winnipeg fans' hearts again, stopping just 26 shots in their 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim. The Ducks now lead the series 3-0.

This is the third straight game the Jets have blown a lead in the third period, and the fact is that Pavelec needs to be better if Winnipeg is to even have a prayer at a miracle run, or at least exit with dignity. Pavelec has stopped just 92 of 103 shots through three games.
Apr 21 - 1:35 AM

Cam Fowler was excellent in Anaheim's huge Game Three overtime 5-4 victory over Winnipeg on Monday night.

Fowler tied the game with seven seconds to go in the first, and added four other shots along with three hits during his 23 minutes of work. He now has two points this postseason, and 13 for his career in 29 games.
Apr 21 - 1:30 AM

Jakob Silfverberg recorded his third career three-point game, and first in the playoffs, with a goal and two assists in Monday night's 5-4 overtime victory over the Jets.

Silfverberg traded game-tying goals and primary assists with Ryan Kesler in the second and third periods, plus added an assist on Cam Fowler's buzzer beater in the first to tie it at one. All in all, it was a great game for the young forward who now has six goals and 10 points in 28 career playoff games.
Apr 21 - 1:27 AM

Andrew Cogliano helped lead his Ducks past the Jets in Monday's 5-4 Game Three overtime victory with a trio of assists. The Ducks now lead the series 3-0.

Cogliano was a force to be reckoned with as he mixed in four hits along with his points in just 16:41 of work. Cogliano's second assist came on Ryan Kesler's game-tying goal with just 2:14 left in the third, and his third on Rickard Rakell's overtime winner. Cogliano now has 11 points in 23 career playoff games, and five career three-point efforts.
