The NHL Department of Player Safety reviewed Colton Sissons' crosscheck on Olli Maatta in Game 5 Thursday night, but determined that no supplemental discipline was warranted.

The incident occurred in the final minute of play and resulted in Sissons getting a match penalty. Maatta wasn't injured on the play, so both players should be in the lineup for Game 6.

Colton Sissons got his sixth goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Monday night.

He was credited with a power-play goal in the third period when a point shot by Roman Josi went off his shin pad. Sissons had seven shots on goal in the contest and he created plenty of scoring chances. He has generated 11 points in 17 playoff games after he had 10 points in 58 matches during the regular season.

Colton Sissons is expected to keep his spot on the top line going into Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Nashville Predators are going to the first Stanley Cup Final in their franchise history thanks to a Colton Sissons hat trick and a dramatic 6-3 triumph Monday night over the visiting Anaheim Ducks in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

Sissons recorded his first playoff hat trick, one in the first period and two in the third. His third goal, with six minutes left in the third period, made it 4-3 for the Preds and turned out to be the game winner. It was a beauty. Moments after an Anaheim power play, Sissons took a pinpoint, cross-ice pass from Calle Jarnkrok and fired a perfect shot past Ducks goalie Jonathan Bernier. Sissons goes into the Stanley Cup final May 29 against either the Pittsburgh Penguins or the Ottawa Senators with five postseason goals. His first Monday gave the Preds a 2-0 lead in the first period. Filip Forsberg found the empty net for his eighth goal of the playoffs. He also assisted on Sissons' second goal and increased his postseason points streak to seven games. Austin Watson also scored an empty-netter as well as the game's first goal. Watson now has four playoff goals. Pontus Aberg contributed two assists for the Western champions.

With injuries to Mike Fisher and Ryan Johanssen the Predators had a very different look up front to start Saturday night's game.

Preds' coach Peter Laviolette iced the following units: Filip Forsberg, Colton Sissons and Pontus Aberg; Colin Wilson, Frederick Gaudreau and Austin Watson; Viktor Arvidsson, Calle Jarnkrok and James Neal and Cody McLeod, Vernon Fiddler and Miikka Salomaki. Obvious winners from a fantasy perspective in this alignment are Sissons, Gaudreau, Aberg and Jarnkrok. As the Preds won Game 5, we wouldn't be surprised if we saw the same units start Game 6 if Mike Fisher is unable to play.

Colton Sissons has made the most of his recent opportunity to play with the Predators.

Sissons has spent chunks of the campaign in the press box, but he's played regularly since March 9 and has three goals in his last two games. "We had had a couple conversations just about the next time he got back in there to make sure that he put an exclamation point on the player that he wanted to show," Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "I do think that confidence plays into it. When he first came back into the lineup, he played strong and confident. I think he grabbed that and built off of that. He moved up a line, and now it's really starting to show." Sissons isn't likely to be a major offensive threat moving forward, but he could still cement his spot as an every game player with the Predators.

Sissons struggled through 12 games without a single point from January 31 through March 20 and was a healthy scratch in a majority of the Predators’ games. He was able to rebound to record only his second multi-point game of the season.
