News: Brandon Prust was assessed 31 minutes in penalties in Sunday's 6-2 loss in Game 2 to the Lightning. Analysis: Brandon Prust started his day in the sin bin with a first-period roughing penalty that got bumped up to four minutes with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Later, his run of Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop behind the net incited a melee and resulted in several more infractions charged to him. None of the penalties cost Montreal a goal, but Prust was the poster boy for the team's undisciplined play in the Game 2 loss.
News: Jiri Hudler (undisclosed) was able to take part in morning skate Sunday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports. Analysis: He was also able to skate Saturday, which indicates that Jiri Hudler will likely be available for the Flames Game 2 contest Sunday night. It's possible that the large deficit the Flames faced when Hudler was initially injured played a part in his not returning to that contest.
News: Micheal Ferland (upper body) indicated that he will play Game 2 Sunday against the Ducks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports Analysis: Micheal Ferland was forced out of the Ducks' Game 1 win with an upper body injury, and was not able to practice Saturday either. While he will go Sunday, the wing may still be hampered by this injury, putting his fantasy value into question a bit.
News: Matt Beleskey scored the game-winning goal in Game 2 against Calgary. Analysis: It was an all-around productive night for Matt Beleskey, who also finished with four hits and five shots on goal. While he's no longer playing on the top line, the 26-year-old is skating on the second line with Ryan Kesler and has scored in back-to-back games. Considering he's seeing power play time and potted 22 goals in the regular season, it's fair to assume Beleskey might find twine a few more times this postseason. With seven shots on goal in Round 2 thus far, things appear to be trending upwards for Beleskey.
News: Ryan Getzlaf factored in on two of Anaheim's three goals in their shutout win over the Flames on Sunday. Analysis: Lost amongst teammate Corey Perry laying waste to the Pacific Division is Ryan Getzlaf's impressive postseason. He now sits on 10 points -- tied for second in the league and trailing only linemate Perry. If the duo continue to be as effective as they have been thus far, there may be a very good chance this team can return to Stanley Cup glory once again.
News: Corey Perry tallied two assists in Sunday's Game 2 win over Calgary. Analysis: The Ducks have now won their first six playoff contests, due in no small part to Corey Perry's prolific scoring rate. He now has 13 points in six playoff games, and a commanding lead atop the NHL playoff scoring race.
News: Hampus Lindholm scored his first career playoff goal in Sunday's 3-0 Game 2 win over the Flames. Analysis: Hampus Lindholm now has six points in the playoffs -- good enough to sit alongside Sami Vatanen for the team lead amongst defensemen. If the Ducks can continue to put together strong offensive efforts like they have in the first six games of the playoffs, expect Lindholm to continue to pick up points.
News: Frederik Andersen stopped all 30 shots he's faced in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Flames. Analysis: Frederik Andersen is having a fantastic start to the second round, stopping 53 of 54 shots through two games. While he's been rock-solid, Anaheim has erupted for nine goals in Round 2, relieving some of the pressure off the 25-year-old. With a whopping .930 save percentage in the playoffs, expect Andersen to continue his strong play as the Ducks look to eliminate the Flames and move on to the Western Conference Final.
News: Karri Ramo stopped 31 of 33 shots in Sunday's Game 2 loss to the Ducks. Analysis: An outstanding performance from Karri Ramo, who kept the Flames in a game they had no business being in. Considering he had replaced Jonas Hiller in the previous two games and looked fantastic Sunday, it's fair to assume Ramo will get the call again for Game 3. The 28-year-old only has four NHL playoff games under his belt, but he's been steady in two straight regular seasons and should give the Flames a fighting chance against the Ducks as the series shifts to Calgary.
News: Alex Killorn chipped in with two power-play assists in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Canadiens. Analysis: Alex Killorn ended the regular season cold as he failed to get on the scoresheet in the final five games, but he's been able to turn the page since the start of the playoffs as he's now registered six points in nine games this postseason. The most encouraging news, however, may be that linemate Steven Stamkos broke out for three points in the win, so Killorn should benefit from his captain waking up out of his slump.
