News: Adam Pardy scored the lone Winnipeg goal in Saturday's Game 2 loss to the Ducks. Analysis: It was Adam Pardy's first career playoff goal and his first goal overall since Jan. 26 2011, ending a 172 game drought. While he logged 17:32 of ice time in the loss, don't expect much more offense from Pardy, as the stay-at-home blueliner notched just nine points in 55 regular-season games this year.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from Sunday's contest, Eric Fehr -- who notched 33 points in 75 regular season contests -- saw 1:19 worth of ice time.

News: Sam Bennett was a little shaken up in Friday's Game 2 but will be in the lineup Sunday for Game 3 against the Canucks, Roger Millions of Sportsnet Calgary reports. Analysis: Sam Bennett has played fairly well in his first two career playoff games, but had his bell rung Friday and didn't play much in the second half of the game. Calgary need his speed and energy to try to upset the Canucks in its first playoff home game in a while.
News: P.A. Parenteau (upper body) is available for Game 3, but he'll be a healthy scratch against the Senators. Analysis: P.A. Parenteau practiced Saturday, but wasn't expected to play Sunday. While that is indeed the case, there's injury behind it any longer. Over the course of 56 games with the club this season, the winger has tallied 22 points, but it's not enough to keep him from being a borderline player every game.

Though he might still be experiencing some residual pain, Girardi won't be at risk of missing any further first-round action.
