Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Pulled after first period

News: Lehtonen was pulled after the first period of Sunday's game against the Blues. He allowed three goals on five shots.

It's been an up and down postseason for Lehtonen. He was great in Game 1 against St. Louis, stopping 31 of 32 shots. But the two starts before that he had an .862 save percentage and an .833 save percentage. It's hard to know when you're going to get a good start from him.

Brian Elliott
Blues' Brian Elliott: Starts Game 2
Brian Elliott, G, STL

News: Elliot will start in goal for Sunday's Game 2 against Dallas, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Despite taking a loss in Game 1, Elliott played well enough to give his time a chance to win. Don't expect anything less from the veteran netminder in Game 2 as the Blues look to even the series. Elliott has carried his fantastic form of the regular season into the playoffs, having posted a 2.36 GAA and a .932 save percentage in eight contests. The Blues are a good defensive team that managed to keep Dallas big guns Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza off the scoresheet in Game 1, something not many teams in the league can claim.

Stars' Jack Campbell: Recalled Sunday

News: Campbell was recalled from the Texas Stars of the AHL on Sunday.

Campbell's recall comes after the Texas Stars' 2015-16 campaign finished. A former top-goaltending prospect, Campbell has yet to pan out at the NHL (or even the AHL) level and it will take dire circumstances for him to find his way into Dallas' net at any point during this postseason.

Matt Murray
Penguins' Matt Murray: Strong play helps Penguins even series
Matt Murray, G, PIT
9:21 AM
News: Murray stopped 23 of 24 shots in Saturday's Game 2 win over the Capitals.

While he wasn't as busy as opposing netminder Braden Holtby, Murray got the job done and helped the Penguins even their series with the Capitals. The 21-year-old has been fantastic this postseason, sporting a .939 save percentage and suffering just one loss through five games. The Caps have loads of offensive firepower, but Murray showed Saturday he can shut the door and propel his team to victory.

Braden Holtby
Capitals' Braden Holtby: 33 saves not enough in Game 2
Braden Holtby, G, WAS
9:11 AM
News: Holtby stopped 33 of 35 shots in Saturday's Game 2 loss to the Penguins.

It was another strong outing for Holtby, but the Capitals were heavily outplayed by the Penguins, who evened the series 1-1. Holtby is sporting a ridiculous .957 save percentage this season and has continued to show he s one of the best goalies in the world. Washington is in tough against a talented Penguins team in the second round, but if Holtby continues his superb play, they have a great chance of moving on.

Ben Bishop
Lightning's Ben Bishop: Rebounds with a 19-save win
Ben Bishop, G, TB

News: Bishop made 19 saves in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

It was a nice rebound for the big man who gave up four goals on 13 shots Wednesday night in a 5-3 loss. Bishop was particularly good in a busy first period, stopping 11 of 12 shots.

Jaroslav Halak
Islanders' Jaroslav Halak: Out Saturday
Jaroslav Halak, G, NYI

News: Halak (groin) won't dress for Saturday's Game 2 against the Lightning, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Halak has been making progress in his recovery from a groin injury of late, taking shots and participating fully in Friday's morning skate, but still isn't ready to draw back into the Islanders' lineup, even in a backup role. New York likely doesn't feel inclined to rush the 30-year-old netminder back into game action, as Thomas Greiss has been fantastic in his absence, compiling a 5-2-0 record with an impressive 1.94 GAA and .941 save percentage over seven playoff starts. The Islanders should provide an update on Halak's status once he's set to return to the lineup.

Analysis: 

Thomas Greiss
Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Confirmed to start in Game 2
Thomas Greiss, G, NYI
4/30/2016
News: Greiss will start in goal Saturday afternoon for Game 2 against the Lightning.

Greiss has evolved into a true workhorse between the pipes, dropping jaws for his endurance in the quarterfinals against the Panthers. Extra hockey was a common theme in that series, as three of Greiss's starts went into a single overtime and two more went into double OT. Evidently, Isles coach Jack Capuano isn't concerned about the heavy workload from Greiss; he's wisely riding the hot hand and fantasy owners should consider following suit.

Pekka Rinne
Predators' Pekka Rinne: 33 saves not enough in Game 1 loss
Pekka Rinne, G, NSH
4/30/2016
News: Rinne gave up three goals on 36 shots in Friday's Game 1 loss to the Sharks.

Rinne played well in the opening game of this second-round series, but the Predators couldn't get more than two goals past opposing netminder Martin Jones. The 33-year-old built off two strong outings to conclude the first first round and looked very sharp against the Sharks. With a .915 save percentage, Rinne will be counted on heavily once again if the Predators hope to get out of the second round.

Martin Jones
Sharks' Martin Jones: 29 saves get the job done in Game 1
Martin Jones, G, SJ
4/30/2016
News: Jones stopped 29 of 31 shots in Friday's Game 1 win over the Predators.

Another strong showing from Jones, who has allowed two or fewer goals in four of six playoff games this year. The Sharks exploded for five goals Friday, so if they can keep finding ways to solve goaltender Pekka Rinne, Jones is sure to pick up more wins. The 26-year-old is sporting a .917 save percentage this postseason and has looked solid for a promising Sharks team.
