Erik Condra, RW, TB
3:01 PM
News: Condra (undisclosed) was back for a normal skate Thursday morning, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Condra occupied the right wing position on the fourth line, which is likely where he'll slot in if he's able to play in Game 4 on Friday, as expected. Look out for an update if he ends up getting scratched.

Ryan Pulock
Islanders' Ryan Pulock: Expected to play in Game 4
Ryan Pulock, D, NYI
1:27 PM
News: Pulock (upper body) was once again at practice Thursday for the Islanders, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

It was thought that Pulock would return for Game 3 but he was given a few extra days off. He is expected to replace Marek Zidlicky in the lineup for Friday's pivotal Game 4. Pulock still has plenty of rough edges to grind down but he also possesses a rocket of a shot from the point and isn't afraid to let it go.

Eric Fehr
Penguins' Eric Fehr: Won't play Wednesday
Eric Fehr, RW, PIT
5/4/2016
News: Fehr isn't participating in pregame warmups, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Capitals, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.

Fehr wasn't on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate due to an undisclosed ailment, which was the first indication that he may not be available for Game 4. Bryan Rust will slide into the veteran winger's spot in the Penguins' lineup, skating alongside Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz on Pittsburgh's third line. The severity of Fehr's injury remains unclear, but those keeping tabs on the 30-year-old forward's availabilty can expect an update on his status ahead of Saturday's Game 5 against Washington.

Olli Maatta
Penguins' Olli Maatta: Out Wednesday
Olli Maatta, D, PIT
5/4/2016
News: Maatta (head) isn't on the ice for pregame warmups, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Capitals, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.

Maatta has yet to return to practice with his teammates, so it's hardly surprising that he won't be in the Penguins' lineup for Wednesday's Game 4 against Washington. The Penguins' depth at defense is sure to be tested Wednesday evening, as Pittsburgh's best blueliner, Kris Letang (suspension), also won't be an option for Game 4. Maatta will hope to return to Pittsburgh's lineup for Saturday's Game 5, but will likely need to log at least one full practice ahead of that contest in order for that to be a possibility.

Tyler Seguin
Stars' Tyler Seguin: Ruled out for Game 4
Tyler Seguin, C, DAL
5/4/2016
News: Seguin (lower body) will not suit up for Thursday's Game 4 matchup with the Blues, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Seguin has played in just one outing since mid-March and will be sidelined for his eighth consecutive contest. The winger was fantastic this season when healthy as he racked up 73 points in 72 contests. Without the 24-year-old in the lineup, the Stars face an uphill battle to get into the next round of the playoffs. If he can get back on the ice for Game 5, Seguin's productivity would make him a top-end fantasy option.

Patrick Eaves
Stars' Patrick Eaves: Won't play in Thursday's Game 4
Patrick Eaves, RW, DAL
5/4/2016
News: Eaves (lower body) will not play in Game 4 on Thursday, Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Per Heika, Eaves stayed behind and skated Tuesday while the team traveled to St. Louis for the upcoming contest. He remains day-to-day.

Drew Miller
Red Wings' Drew Miller: Hoping to stay in Motor City
Drew Miller, LW, DET
5/4/2016
News: Miller feels good about his surgically repaired knee and hopes to return to the Red Wings next season, MLive.com reports.

This past January, Miller underwent major surgery to reconstruct his left ACL. The report notes that the fourth-line winger resumed skating late in the regular season but did not get the green light to partake in practices. Miller is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but he has a red flag due to his injury-plagued 2015-16 campaign. Before the serious knee injury, Miller broke his jaw and missed 14 games. This season, he only made his way into 28 contests, recording just two points and a minus-5 rating through 28 games. He can be an effective penalty killer, so he'll hope the Wings can look past his recent injury troubles and land a contract extension this summer.

Artem Anisimov
Blackhawks' Artem Anisimov: Undergoes successful surgery Tuesday
Artem Anisimov, C, CHI
5/3/2016
News: Anisimov underwent successful surgery to repair a right wrist injury Tuesday, and is expected to return to full hockey activities in 6-to-8 weeks.

Anisimov was a steady source of offense for the Blackhawks this season, notching 42 points (20 goals, 22 assists) in 77 regular-season games while centering the dangerous duo of Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin on Chicago's second line. The 27-year-old forward will likely return to a similar, if not identical role in 2016-17, and should be similarly productive barring injury. At this juncture, there's no indication that Anisimov won't be ready for the start of next season's training camp.

Analysis: 

Matt Beleskey
Bruins' Matt Beleskey: Undergoes hand surgery
Matt Beleskey, LW, BOS
5/3/2016
News: Beleskey underwent surgery on his left hand back on April 14.

With Beleskey's recovery time expected to be six weeks, the winger should be ready to roll in time for training camp. In his first season with Boston, Beleskey notched 15 goals and 37 points in 80 games, while bringing a consistent grit and compete level to the ice on a daily basis.

Analysis: 

David Krejci
Bruins' David Krejci: Undergoes hip surgery
David Krejci, C, BOS
5/3/2016
News: Krejci underwent a procedure on his left hip back on April 25.

With Krejci's recovery time estimated at this time to be about five months, the playmaking center appears to be on track to be ready to play in time for the start of the 2016-17 season, barring any setbacks.
