The Ducks will roll with the same lineup that led to victories in Games 1 and 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal series with the Winnipeg Jets.

That means the Ducks will continue to scratch defensemen James Wisniewski, Josh Manson, and Korbinian Holzer for Game 3 Monday night. Jiri Sekac will also be held out of the lineup Monday night. If the Ducks continue to earn playoff victories, then this group of players will most likely continue being scratched.

Derrick Pouliot (upper body) will not return to the Penguins lineup for Game 3 versus the New York Rangers.

Pouliot was unable to dress for Games 1 and 2 in New York and will continue to be sidelined Monday night for Game 3. The 21-year-old defensemen has yet to play in his first career playoff game and was able to tally two goals and seven points in 34 games during the regular season.

James Sheppard will once again be a healthy scratch for Game 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Head Coach Alain Vigneault was considering inserting Sheppard in place of Tanner Glass but will instead keep the same lineup from Games 1 and 2. After being acquired from the Sharks earlier in the year at the NHL trade deadline, Sheppard has had a hard time cracking the Rangers lineup on a regular basis, playing in only 14 games while scoring just two goals. Chris Summers will also remain a scratch for the Rangers Monday night.

Scott Wilson will be in the Penguins lineup for Game 3 versus the Rangers Monday night.

Wilson will take Beau Bennett's place, who is out with an undisclosed injury. It will be Wilson's playoff debut and also just the second game of his career at the NHL level. He last saw game action back on December 2, 2014 where played in just 4:21 minutes. He will line up on the wing alongside Brandon Sutter and Steve Downie to form the Pens third line.

Beau Bennett will be sidelined for Game 3 because of an upper-body injury.

Scott Wilson will dress in his place. Bennett logged just 5:21 of ice time in Saturday's contest and he had 10:42 of playing time in Game 1.

Ryan Carter, Erik Haula, and Nate Prosser will be watching from the press box Monday night against the Blues in Game 3.

This trio has yet to crack the Wild lineup for their previous two playoff games and we don’t expect them to get back out there anytime soon. Matt Cooke, and Jordan Schroeder, and Christian Folin are also healthy scratches Monday night while Sean Bergenheim and Justin Fontaine tag in for Game 3.

Defensemen Chris Butler and Robert Bortuzzo will watch from the press box yet again for Game 3 Monday night.

There was a slight chance head coach Ken Hitchcock was going to insert Bortuzzo for Barrett Jackman for Game 3, but he will ride the same lineup that led to a convincing Game 2 victory, which means both Bortuzzo and Butler will be scratched. Bortuzzo has just eight playoff games under his belt while Butler has appeared in only seven playoff games over his career.

Blues forwards, Olli Jokinen, Chris Porter, and Ty Rattie, will all be healthy scratches Monday night for Game 3 against the Wild.

Jokinen is the biggest omission of the trio but has not seen much game action since being acquired by the Blues. He’s recorded just one goal and two assists in eight games with the Blues during the regular season and was a healthy scratch in Games 1 and 2 versus the Wild. He does, however, have a chance to get in the lineup if an injury occurs, so his situation is worth monitoring. Porter and Rattie will most likely watch from the press box for the remainder of the Blues playoff games.

The procedure will make him unavailable for the rest of the season. Ottawa's playoff appearance may come to an end as soon as Wednesday night if Montreal completes the four-game sweep. Phillips hasn't been in the lineup since Feb. 5.

Andre Burakovsky will likely be in the lineup in Game 4.

A chance to make his NHL playoff debut became probable after Eric Fehr sustained an upper-body injury on Sunday. "It's what everyone wants," said Burakovsky about playing in the postseason. "I've been working my whole life to be here and I'm really excited. I've been around almost the whole year. I kind of know how we should play. I won't change my game for tomorrow."

Mike Fisher (lower body) joined his teammates on the ice about 20 minutes after Monday's practice started.

He was on the ice for about 40 minutes and stayed out late, so he appears to be making some progress. However, his status for Game 4 against Chicago remains uncertain. Fisher has sat out the past two games with a lower-body injury.

The Winnipeg Jets will not make any lineup changes for their Game 3 matchup with the Anaheim Ducks.

Head Coach Paul Maruice will try to win Game 3 of the Western Conference’s first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the same lineup they used in Game 2. Therefore the following long list of players will all be healthy scratches for Game 3 Monday night: Ben Chiarot, Andrew Copp, Keaton Ellerby, T.J. Calliardi, Matt Halischuk, Jay Harrison, Connor Hellebuyck, Eric O’Dell, and Antony Peluso.

Tomas Fleischmann is expected to make his 2015 playoff debut Monday night against the Jets.

With Chris Wagner out due to an upper body injury, it appears Fleischmann will be called upon to fill the roster spot. He was seen skating on a line with Emerson Etem and Tim Jackman during the team's morning skate. The veteran has recorded four goals and four assists in 29 career postseason games.
