News: Patrice Bergeron had a goal and assist in Tuesday's Game 3 win over the Red Wings. Analysis: Patrice Bergeron's empty-netter in the final two minutes of the third period was his first goal of the postseason and put the finishing touches on a shutout victory. With three points in three playoff games, he hasn't seemed to be affected by the lower-body injury that dogged him over the final few games of the regular season.
News: Lars Eller scored his second goal of the playoffs in Tuesday's series-clinching victory over the Bolts. Analysis: Lars Eller was one of the instrumental figures behind the Canadiens' sweep, providing a point in each game while chipping in defensively with nine hits and four blocked shots in total. His breakout should allow him to see ample ice time during the next round of postseason play.
News: Fedor Tyutin (undisclosed) will not play in Game 4 against the Penguins on Wednesday, Brent Wallace of TSN reports. Analysis: There's still no update on what exactly is ailing Fedor Tyutin, but he'll watch his second straight game from the press box Wednesday. The team gets a two day break before Game 5 on Saturday, so there's a chance Tyutin could be healthy enough to return by then.
News: Claude Giroux attempted his first two shots of the series in Tuesday's Game 3 loss to the Rangers. Analysis: The Rangers' ability to deny Claude Giroux of shot opportunities has been the difference in the series so far, with the 86-point scorer forced to defer to his less talented teammates for offense. Giroux has at least managed to pick up two assists in the three games, but he'll need to play a little more aggressively over the next few games if the Flyers hope to come out on top in the series.
News: Milan Michalek finished the season with 17 goals and 22 assists in 82 games. Analysis: The good news is that Milan Michalek stayed healthy through the entire season after battling a knee injury for most of 2013, but he didn't perform quite as well as the team had hoped. His 39 points were nowhere near his 2011-12 season total of 60, and his lack of production could factor into what happens to him this summer when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
News: Victor Hedman had a goal in Tuesday's season-ending loss to the Canadiens in Game 4 of their first-round matchup. Analysis: Although the Bolts ended up getting swept, Victor Hedman managed to produce for those who owned him in playoff pools, recording a point in each of the final three games. All and all, it was a successful season for the blueliner, who set a career high with 55 points during the regular season.
News: Carey Price stopped 20 of 23 shots to lead the Canadiens to a Game 4 victory and a sweep of the Lightning on Tuesday. Analysis: Carey Price coughed up a two-goal lead in this one before Max Pacioretty scored the game-winner and series-clincher with just 43 seconds left in the third period. The netminder was somewhat up-and-down during the four-game series, but managed to ride his offense to victories in each game.
News: Stephane Da Costa (face) received the team MVP award for AHL Binghamton on Saturday. Analysis: The center missed a couple weeks after requiring plastic surgery on his face due to a high stick, but was able to return to the lineup Saturday. After the game, Stephane Da Costa received the team's MVP award for the season. He posted three goals and an assist in 12 NHL games with the Senators this year, and could be a big part of the team next season.
News: Patrick Marleau scored the OT winner in Game 3, adding an assist, a plus-2 rating, four shots, and 23:26 of ice time. Analysis: Patrick Marleau has scored in all three postseason games thus far, totaling five points, fourth best in the league.
News: Joe Thornton had an assist, two penalty minutes, and played 20:41 in a Game 3 win over LA. Analysis: Joe Thornton has points in five straight, with three of those happening in the postseason. He's been playing as well as he did all season and is even shedding the season-long stigma that he's only good for assists. He has two goals, an assist, and eight shots through the first three games.
