Fredrik Claesson earned his third assist of the postseason on Tuesday night.

He dropped the puck to Mike Hoffman, who wired a hard shot into the post behind Pittsburgh's Matt Murray and into the net for the game-winning goal in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final. Claesson made a good play on the marker by driving towards the goal. Clarke MacArthur had the other assist on Hoffman's winner to force Game 7 on Thursday night.

Fredrik Claesson will stay in the lineup Tuesday night.

He got back in the fold for Game 5 versus the Rangers and coach Guy Boucher won't make any changes to the Senators' defense corps. That will make Ben Harpur a healthy scratch again.

Fredrik Claesson will return to the Sens lineup for Game 5 against the Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

Claesson was a healthy scratch in Ottawa's Game 4 loss in New York, but he'll take Ben Harpur's spot in the lineup today. Claesson has one assist, a plus one rating and two penalty minutes in five games during the postseason. It's still unclear if the Sens will make any other lineup changes.

Fredrik Claesson will be a healthy scratch for Game 4 Thursday night.

Chris Wideman will draw into the lineup in Claesson's place. Senators coach Guy Boucher is fine with how Claesson played overall, but he wants Ottawa to play a more physical game. That's why the 6-foot-7 Ben Harpur is staying in the lineup over Claesson.

He was subbing in for the injured Marc Methot after being a healthy scratch for the Senators' last four games. Claesson has played well in spot starts this season. That said, his highest point total in three AHL seasons is 29. He is not a fantasy asset at this time.
