Andrew Hammond stopped 44 of 45 shots in Friday's 2-1 Game 5 win over the Nashville Predators.

This is shaping into one of the best stories of the year with Hammond making 20 saves in the final period to keep the Avs in the game long enough for them to come away with the victory. The 30-year-old netminder finished as the game's first star and he'll look to replicate tonight's magic on Sunday for a do-or-die Game 6 in Colorado.

Gabriel Landeskog scored a goal in Friday's 2-1 Game 5 win over the Nashville Predators.

Landeskog might have scored but the whole play was set up by Nathan MacKinnon who did all the work to get the puck out in front to his captain. It's Landeskog's fourth goal of the playoffs so far and it was the first of two scored in a span of just over three minutes to push the series back to Colorado for Game 6. Sven Andrighetto scored the game-winning goal for the Avs.

Nick Bonino scored a goal in Fridays 2-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Mattias Ekholm's shot went of Andrew Hammond before bouncing off of Bonino's skate and into the net. The official was quick to rule no-goal but after going to video review, they decided to overturn the call. In the end, it wasn't much of a controversy with the Avalanche scoring two goals in three minutes to come away with the win. Game 6 will be in Colorado on Sunday with the Predators holding a 3-2 series lead.

Brandon Tanev posted a goal with a plus-1 rating and a game-high seven hits in Winnipeg's series-clinching victory Friday against the Wild.

Tanev was very willing to sacrifice his body in this one, also stepping in front of a shot in his 14:29 of ice time. He might not be the most gifted offensive player in the regular season, but his game is tailor-made for the postseason. Tanev is the kind of physical player who can really get under the skin of the opposition in a long series.

Mark Scheifele notched a power-play goal and an assist in a 5-0 win over Minnesota in Game 5 on Friday.

Scheifele nearly had another in the third period but he rang it off the post. He finished the series-clinching victory with four shots on goal, a blocked shot and two hits in his 19:30 of ice time. Scheifele also won eight of 15 faceoffs in the contest. Next up for the Jets will be a series against the Avalanche or Predators.
Apr 20 - 10:37 PM

Paul Stastny picked up a pair of assists with a plus-1 rating and two blocked shots in Winnipeg's 5-0 series-clinching win against Minnesota in Game 5.

Stastny was also money in the faceoff circle, winning eight of his 10 puck drops. The center wrapped up the playoff series with a goal and four points in five games, including the game-winning tally back in Game 2. The Jets will face either his former team, the Avalanche, or the Predators in Round 2.
Apr 20 - 10:34 PM

Dustin Byfuglien registered a pair of assists in a 5-0 win over Minnesota in Game 5 on Friday.

Byfuglien also posted a plus-2 rating, three shots, two blocks and four hits in 25:34 of ice time. The veteran rearguard logged nearly three minutes more ice time than any of his teammates, really stepping up his game as the Jets posted the series victory to move on to Round 2 of the postseason. Winnipeg will face either Colorado or Nashville. In case you were wondering, Buff had four assists in four regular-season games with a plus-3 rating and 17 PIMs vs. Colorado, and just one goal and an even rating in four games vs. Nashville.
Apr 20 - 10:32 PM

Devan Dubnyk was pulled in Game 5 against Winnipeg after he surrendered four goals on just 10 shots in the first period.

Dubnyk certainly didn't have the performance he was looking for and now Minnesota's season is over. Still, he was great for parts of the series and had a solid regular season with a 35-16-7 record, 2.52 goals-against average and .918 save percentage. Alex Stalock stopped 15 of 16 shots in relief.
Apr 20 - 10:28 PM

Connor Hellebuyck turned aside all 30 shots he faced in a 5-0 win over Minnesota in Game 5 on Friday night.

The Jets wrapped up their first series victory in Thrashers/Jets franchise history, and it was the first playoff series win for the city of Winnipeg since the original Jets back in 1987. Hellebuyck has shutouts in each of the past two outings since being lifted early in Game 3 after two periods. The Jets will face the winner of the Avalanche-Predators series in Round 2.
Apr 20 - 10:24 PM

Bryan Rust found the back of the net in a 4-2 loss to Philadelphia in Game 5 on Friday.

Rust has two goals in four games this playoffs. He only netted 13 goals during the regular season over 69 appearances, but he has elevated his game in the postseason before. Remember, he had 15 goals in the regular season in 2016-17 and ended up with seven goals and nine points in 23 playoff outings a year ago.
Apr 20 - 10:18 PM

Matt Murray allowed three goals on 24 shots in Friday's 4-2 loss against the Flyers in Game 5.

Murray faced a motivated Philly team playing for their season. The Pens still have a 3-2 series lead going into Sunday's contest with a chance to advance to Round 2. Murray has been superb in his playoff wins this year, but his defeats have been another story. In the team's three victories he has allowed a total of just one goal. In the two losses, he has yielded seven goals on 43 shots.
Apr 20 - 10:11 PM

Matt Read posted a goal on three shots, while adding a blocked shot and two hits in Game 5 in Pittsburgh on Friday night.

Read sealed Philadelphia's victory with an empty-net marker. The Ontario native was mostly a non-factor through the first four games of the series, going scoreless with one shot on goal with four penalty minutes. Game 6 is set for Sunday back in Philadelphia.
Apr 20 - 10:03 PM

Radko Gudas was scoreless with a plus-1 rating in Game 5 against the Penguins on Friday night.

Gudas took some heat from the Philly faithful for injuring Sean Couturier in practice, causing the forward to miss Game 4. Flyers fans were glad to see Gudas hitting players on the Penguins, though. In fact, he dished out a game-high seven hits while posting a blocked shot and racking up seven PIMs.
Apr 20 - 10:01 PM

Sean Couturier scored the game-winning goal with 75 seconds remaining in regulation in Game 5 on Friday night at Pittsburgh.

Couturier was able to play after an injury in practice caused him to miss Game 4, but he was not in his usual spot on the team's first line for Game 5. He was able to tough it out through injury and net the game winner. It appears he'll be fine for Sunday's elimination game against the Penguins.
Apr 20 - 9:59 PM

Claude Giroux opened the scoring in Game 5 on Friday night against Pittsburgh for his first goal of the series.

The 102-point scorer during the regular season had been nearly shut down offensively in the first four contests of the series, posting just one assist with a dismal minus-7 rating. He was paired with Valtteri Filppula and Jakub Voracek on the top line, as Sean Couturier was moved out, and the newly-formed trio accounted for two goals and five points to force a Game 6 back in Philadelphia.
