  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Making progress

    Barkov (upper body) is progressing ahead of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Thursday against Edmonton, according to Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site.

    Barkov's availability for Thursday's contest is in question due to an injury he sustained during the third period of Monday's 4-1 victory over the Oilers. He will be assessed further Wednesday, but head coach Paul Maurice expressed optimism Tuesday that they will be in "good shape" if the 28-year-old forward continues to make positive progress. Barkov has registered six goals and 19 points in 19 outings this postseason.

  • Panthers' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Nabs helper in win

    Ekman-Larsson garnered an assist in a 4-1 Game 2 victory over Edmonton on Monday.

    Ekman-Larsson was able to end a 10-game pointless streak dating back to May 10 versus Boston. Despite the helper, the blueliner remains mired in a 15-game goal drought, during which he's registered a mere 17 shots on net. Even with his limited production, Ekman-Larsson continues to see opportunities with the No. 2 power-play unit.

  • Panthers' Sam Bennett: Grabs helper in Game 2

    Bennett registered an assist in a 4-1 Game 2 victory over the Oilers on Monday.

    Bennett extended his point streak to five games, having notched three goals, three assists and 15 shots over that stretch. In addition, the 27-year-old winger is adding plenty of physicality, dishing out 32 hits in those five outings. Despite averaging 2:07 of ice time with the man advantage, Bennett hasn't recorded a power-play point in his last six appearances.

  • Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Scores goal in win

    Ekblad scored a goal on four shots in Monday's 4-1 victory over Edmonton in Game 2.

    Ekblad was able to bring a 31-game goal drought to a close, having last found the back of the net Feb. 20 versus the Senators. The blueliner's fantasy value figures to primarily come from defensive stats -- he has racked up 13 hits and 16 blocks across his last five outings -- but adding some offensive production should bolster his outlook heading into Game 3 on Thursday.

  • Panthers' Niko Mikkola: Scores second of playoffs

    Mikkola scored the game-tying goal in Monday's 4-1 win over Edmonton in Game 2.

    Mikkola tied the game at one in the second period after burying a drop pass from Anton Lundell past Edmonton's Stuart Skinner. Mikkola had been held off the scoresheet in four consecutive contests prior to getting back on the board in Game 2. While he's not known for his offense, Mikkola will jump into the rush if given the opportunity, as evidenced by his marker Monday night. The second-pair defenseman has two goals and two assists with a plus-4 rating in 19 playoff contests.

  • Panthers' Anton Lundell: Notches two helpers in win

    Lundell registered a pair of primary assists in Monday's 4-1 win versus Edmonton in Game 2.

    Lundell had an even-strength assist on Niko Mikkola's second-period tally before adding the primary helper on Evan Rodrigues' power-play goal in the final frame. Lundell added one shot, one block, two hits and a plus-1 rating in 16:02 of ice time. The 22-year-old moved into fourth on the team in postseason scoring after his two-point effort Monday. The middle-six center has 14 points (three goals) and a plus-8 rating through 19 postseason appearances.

  • Panthers' Evan Rodrigues: Pots two goals in win

    Rodrigues scored twice in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Oilers in Game 2.

    Rodrigues extended his point streak to three games and goal streak to two contests thanks to Monday's performance. The 30-year-old added two shots, two hits and a plus-1 rating in 14:38 of ice time. Rodrigues has proven to be an important part of Florida's attack -- he's currently playing alongside Matthew Tkachuk and Sam Bennett on the second line. Rodrigues also has three markers through the first two outings of the Stanley Cup Finals, while no other player has more than one. The Toronto native is up to six goals, five assists and a plus-2 rating in 19 playoff contests.

  • Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Light workload in Game 2

    Bobrovsky made 18 saves on 19 shots in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Oilers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Bobrovsky is now two wins away from helping the Panthers raise the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. The 35-year-old has won five consecutive contests while not allowing more than two goals in a game during that span. Bob has been beaten by Edmonton only once in the series, making a total of 50 saves on 51 shots. The Russian netminder has lost consecutive outings just once this postseason, so it'll be an uphill battle for the Oilers going forward. Bobrovsky is 14-5 with a 2.02 GAA and a .916 save percentage through 19 postseason appearances.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: No update after game

    Barkov suffered an apparent injury during Monday's Game 2 win over Edmonton. There was no update on his status after the game, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Barkov took a hit up high from Leon Draisaitl in the third period and went straight back to the locker room. Barkov had two shots on goal in 17:47 of ice time before exiting the contest. He logged two assists in Game 1 and has 19 points through 19 postseason contests. There should be an update on his status before Game 3 on Thursday.

  • Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Set to start Monday

    Bobrovsky is slated to be between the pipes at home for Game 2 against the Oilers on Monday, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    Bobrovsky was phenomenal in Game 1, stopping all 32 shots he faced to record his second playoff shutout. The netminder is currently riding a four-game winning streak during which he posted a 1.24 GAA and .953 save percentage. Considering the Russian hasn't sat a game out since the regular-season finale versus Toronto on April 16, he figures to remain the Panthers' preferred option in the crease the rest of the way.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Garners helper in Game 1 win

    Montour logged an assist and two hits in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Oilers in Game 1.

    Montour had the secondary helper on Evan Rodrigues' second-period tally. Through 18 playoff contests, Montour has 10 points, 38 shots on net, 38 hits and 28 blocked shots while playing in a top-four role. His offense has dipped later in the postseason -- he has just two assists over his last 10 outings.

  • Panthers' Sam Bennett: Plays heavy in win

    Bennett registered an assist, 11 hits, two shots on goal and two PIM in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Oilers in Game 1.

    Bennett is no stranger to heavy play, but he had to be feeling amped up for the series opener of the Stanley Cup Finals. The center has produced 11 points, 28 shots on net, 64 hits and a plus-4 rating through 13 playoff appearances. He remains in a second-line role and should continue to blend offense and physicality as the Panthers look to keep up their high-energy playing style.

  • Panthers' Sam Reinhart: Picks up helper in win

    Reinhart logged an assist, three shots on goal, three blocked shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Oilers in Game 1.

    Reinhart hadn't logged an assist since he dished out four of them in Game 2 of the second round versus the Bruins. Over the 10 contests in between, the 28-year-old winger posted five goals and 33 shots on net. He's up to 13 points (five on the power play), 68 shots, 44 hits, 27 blocks and a plus-2 rating through 18 playoff appearances in a top-line role.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Dishes pair of assists

    Barkov recorded two assists, two shots on goal, three hits, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Oilers in Game 1.

    Barkov has a goal and five assists over his last five contests. The 28-year-old is firmly in the Conn Smythe conversation with six goals, 13 helpers, 47 shots on net, 40 hits, 17 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating over 18 playoff appearances, to go along with his usual stellar defensive work. Aside from the score, the Panthers didn't control much Saturday, and Barkov may have his hands full with arguably the toughest defensive matchups he's faced all season throughout the rest of the series.
