News: Dennis Seidenberg (leg) won't play Sunday against the Rangers.

News: Eric Gryba (upper body) will miss Sunday's Game 3 against the Penguins. Analysis: Andre Benoit will check in on the Sens' third defensive pairing in his place, but neither player should be counted on for much production in terms of fantasy points.

News: Jonathan Toews was taken out of Game 2 as the Red Wings pushed him around in the Blackhawks' 4-1 loss, ESPN Chicago reports. Analysis: Maybe this will wake-up Jonathan Toews who has not potted a goal in seven postseason games this season. He does have three assists in the last three games, but no goals to show for it. "I'm not going to go off and complain about some calls I thought should have been called or whatever, one way or another," Toews said. "If that's the way they're going to play, well, we need to play the same. There's a lot of clutch and grab, a lot of interference. If they're going to let that go, that's something we need to know and maybe do to them a little bit."
