Erik Karlsson has revealed that he has been playing for nearly a month with two hairline fractures in his left heel.

Karlsson told ESPN that he played with the two fractures through all six games of the Senators' first-round series against the Boston Bruins. The Sens won the series in Boston Sunday. "This guy's a machine. That's what it is," Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said of the team's captain. "To be able to play that many minutes and be that good defensively and offensively, that's where he's at right now. He's at such a high level." Karlsson, who a finalist for the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenseman, reportedly sustained one of the injuries March 28 and the second in early April.

For Clarke MacArthur, scoring the series-winning overtime winner has to be particularly sweet.

It's every player's dream, but MacArthur has to have a particular appreciation for just how special it is after missing almost all of the last two seasons with post-concussion syndrome. MacArthur returned on April 4 and went on to participate in every game of the first round. "It’s just awesome to be back playing and to end the game like that," said MacArthur. "You miss most of the last two years, and you keep working on it, and it’s just great to get that opportunity and be able to put away like that."
