Olli Jokinen, Roberto Bortuzzo and Marcel Goc will be scratched in Sunday's tilt against the Minnesota Wild.

No surprises here. The Blues need to win this game to keep their season alive. They currently trail 3-2 in this first round series.

Jori Lehtera will play in Sunday's game six tilt against the Minnesota Wild.

Lehtera (lower body) missed game five because of an injury, but his return to the lineup should give the Blues a boost. He was skating on a line with Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko. The Blues need to win to keep their season alive.
Apr 26 - 3:12 PM

Jake Allen will get the start in Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Allen wasn't very good in game five, but he will get the call in the biggest game of the season. The Blues are facing elimination in Minnesota and they will need their goaltender to be solid if they want to extend the series. Allen has a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage in the 2015 playoffs.

Jori Lehtera (lower body) is on the ice for the pre-game warmup.

That's a good sign for both Lehtera and the Blues. The 27-year-old missed game five because of the injury, so it's encouraging to see him out on the ice before the game. We'll keep you up to date on his situation as we get closer to puck-drop.

Scott Wilson has been assigned to the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins in the AHL.

Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate currently has a 2-0 series lead against the Syracuse Crunch. Getting reinforcements from the NHL will only help their playoff run. The 23-year-old had no points in three playoff games in 2015.
Apr 26 - 2:41 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned Brian Dumoulin to the AHL.

Dumoulin played relatively well when called upon with the big club. He will now head to Wilkes Barre for their AHL playoff run. The 23-year-old had one point in eight regular season games, and no points in the post-season for Pittsburgh.
Apr 26 - 2:39 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned Taylor Chorney to the minors.

Chorney was inserted into the Penguins playoff lineup because of the many injuries they had on defense. The 27-year-old had no points in five playoff games for Pittsburgh. He will help the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins in their first round series against the Syracuse Crunch.
Apr 26 - 2:36 PM

Devan Dubnyk will get the start in Sunday's game six tilt against the St. Louis Blues.

The Wild have an opportunity to put the Blues away in Minnesota. It will be interesting to see how the Wild respond on home ice. The last time these two teams played in Minnesota, the Blues won by a score of 6-1. Dubnyk has a 3-2 record with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage in the 2015 playoffs.
Apr 26 - 2:29 PM

Head Coach Barry Trotz confirmed that Curtis Glencross will play in game seven against the Islanders.

Glencross was acquired from Calgary before the trade deadline, but he has been a healthy scratch in the last three games of this series.
Apr 26 - 12:10 PM

Sidney Crosby will play for team Canada at the World Hockey Championships.

The Penguins were eliminated from the playoffs on Friday night, and we now find out that Crosby has committed to play for his country. Obviously, this is a huge boost to Canada's roster and their chances of winning the gold medal have increased significantly. Canada already had a strong roster with big names such as Tyler Seguin and Matt Duchene, but Crosby's arrival will drop everyone down a notch on the pecking order. The 27-year-old finished the 2014-15 season with 28 goals and 84 points in 77 games. He had two goals and four points in five playoff games.
Apr 26 - 11:45 AM

P.A. Parenteau will be back in the Canadiens lineup for game six against Ottawa on Sunday night.

The 32-year-old played in game one of the series, but he suffered an injury in that game. Parenteau was deemed healthy enough to return a few days ago, but Montreal hasn't changed their lineup. The Habs have lost two in a row and have struggled to score, so Parenteau will be a welcome addition at this point.
Apr 26 - 11:32 AM

Dale Weise didn't participate in the Canadiens morning skate on Sunday.

Head coach Michel Therrien said that Weise "should" be available to play. He will probably be a game-time decision for game six in Ottawa, tonight.
Apr 26 - 11:28 AM

The Minnesota Wild have signed Christoph Bertschy to an entry-level contract.

The 21-year-old was drafted by Minnesota in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. He had 14 goals and 30 points in 44 games with SC Bern in the Swiss League last season. Bertschy had three goals and five points at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championships for Switzerland. He didn't participate in the event in 2014 because of an injury.
Apr 26 - 11:26 AM

Evgeni Malkin said he still isn't sure if he will play for Russia at the World Hockey Championships this spring.

Malkin said that he enjoys playing for his country, but his health may prevent him from going. The Russian forward didn't register a point in five playoff games. He said that he and the Penguins still haven't had a conversation about his World Championship eligibility.
Apr 26 - 11:18 AM

Jean-Gabriel Pageau will play in game six against Montreal on Sunday.

Pageau got some treatment after blocking a P.K. Subban shot in game five, and it appears as though he will be ready to go for Sunday's tilt.
