The Lightning are trying to become just the third different organization to play in back-to-back Stanley Cup Finals in the salary cap era (Pittsburgh and Detroit — Pittsburgh has done it twice) and only the third different organization to actually win back-to-back Stanley Cups (again, Pittsburgh and Detroit) since 1990.

The Bruins' power play was excellent in this series, and it scored again in the third period thanks to Brad Marchand.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy didn't provide an update on Rask following morning skate, but the expectation is that he'll start Monday night in Game 5, which is set for 6:30 p.m. ET at TD Garden with the teams' second-round Stanley Cup Playoff series knotted at 2-2.Seattle Kraken

The second line of Hall with Smith and David Krejci gave the B's much-needed depth, drove puck possession at a high rate and outscored opponents by a wide margin during 5-on-5 action. Bringing that line back next for season -- Krejci also is a free agent -- should be a top priority for Bruins management.Buffalo Sabres

They could persuade Zach Parise and possibly Suter to waive their NMCs so they can gain some extra protection spots and keep the Kraken from getting too tempted by their goaltenders. Regardless of what happens, the Wild need to either make sure they only lose one player or at least make it worth it if they lose more than one.Boston Bruins

Ryan: Islanders in 7 - There's been something really impressive about the Islanders scoring depth in the 2021 playoffs. They have nine different players averaging at least 0.25 goals-per-game in the playoffs and because of that, the Islanders actually have scored slightly more goals-per-game than the Lightning despite Tampa Bay's stars playing up to their full potential thus far. Certainly this Lightning team is still more than capable of beating the Islanders and this series can go either way, but it just feels like the Islanders have things figured out right now in a truly special way.Calgary Flames Custom Logo Face Coverings

There are currently 10 players on the roster, including all of the most significant players, signed for at least the next two seasons. Several of them are signed beyond that. And while they will eventually get hit by a salary cap crunch (they will not be able to find a Kucherov surgery situation every season) and will lose somebody to Seattle in this offseason’s expansion draft, they always have people ready to step into the lineup and make an impact.New Jersey Devils Custom Logo Face Coverings

That said, Paschall has plenty of potential with career averages of 18.7 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per-36 minutes. And he’s only due to make $1.78 million next season before becoming a restricted free agent. Most likely as part of a bigger move to add someone, Paschall may find his footing elsewhere next season.

In my opinion, that’s a total admission of fault. Why else would the league change the rules on physicality in practice and games? As proof of the old days, we have those videos like “Crunch Course” that glorify those hits that are now outlawed.

“I truly believe that he will be there for training camp, this will get fixed, and I think the relationship will get much better between him and the GM,” Jones told Colin Cowherd.

“It’s been unlucky,” then-coach Bill O’Brien said on May 19, 2019. “Duke’s a great guy and he just has had some bad luck. He’ll be back, though. He’ll be back at some point and he’ll have a chance to be a good pro football player. He’s a good guy, he can do a lot of different things, he’s a versatile player. It’s just one of those things. It’s tough. It was a fluky thing. It’s just bad luck really, to be honest with you.”

While Thomas, who turns 30 on July 1, doesn't see himself as a finished product, he does view himself as on the rise. He says he can still add to his game, especially as a downfield threat. That's why he spent part of the offseason studying tight ends such as the San Francisco 49ers' George Kittle, Kansas City Chiefs' Travis Kelce and Las Vegas Raiders' Darren Waller.

Bergevin also made life a little less comfortable for Price by firing goalie coach Stéphane Waite -- during a game on March 3, no less -- and giving Price a new coach for the first time since 2013 in director of goaltending Sean Burke.

Prescott entered this past season on the franchise tag, in hopes of securing a long-term, high-paying contract in 2021. Those plans looked to have been dashed once he suffered a season-ending compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle during a Week 5 game against the New York Giants. As it turns out, Prescott’s absence loomed heavily for the Cowboys, as they finished the campaign with a 6-10 record and missed out on the playoffs.

Things were trending up for the Panthers, but then they ran into an extremely tough first-round matchup. The defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning -- who welcomed back Nikita Kucherov for this series -- got more chances, better chances, and forced the Panthers to rely on chippiness. Though Spencer Knight's work late in the series is encouraging for the future, Tampa Bay capitalized on Florida's goaltending slips. Barkov was dealing with a shoulder injury, according to sources, and clearly wasn't 100%. It was a disappointing end to an exciting season that showed us that the Panthers are closer than we think.

Malone said he limited Porter's minutes in the second half because he could tell the back issue was bothering Porter, and wanted to try and keep him fresh for what he hopes will be a long series.

The challenge in trading Walker is the combination of health concerns — Walker missed 29 games this past season, primarily due to knee issues, including sitting out half of back-to-backs — and the fact that he is owed $73.7 million over the next two seasons (the second year of that is a player option, but it’s hard to imagine a scenario where he doesn’t pick that up).
