NHL Recent Player News
|4/15/2014||Mark Fistric, D||Fistric has a lower-body injury for Anaheim.
Analysis: Fistric's status is unclear for the playoffs. His Ducks are playing his former team, the Stars, so this matchup is a bit personal.

Analysis: Sedin's 16 goals are his fewest in a full season since he scored 14 in 2002-03. He clearly appears to be on the downswing of his career trajectory.

|4/14/2014||Anders Lindback, G||Lindback earned a 1-0 shootout win over Washington in the regular-season finale Sunday.
Analysis: The shutout was the first this season for Lindback and third of his career. He might get a chance to see the ice some more if Ben Bishop can't return from a wrist injury in time for the playoffs.
|4/14/2014||Anders Lee, C||Lee scored twice in the New York Islanders' season finale, a 4-3 shootout win over Buffalo on Sunday.
Analysis: Lee had three of his nine goals in the final two games. He finished with 14 points in 22 contests this season.

Analysis: After scoring 21 goals and registering 40 assists, the Hurricanes captain will enter next season on the verge of some career milestones. Staal has 289 goals, 399 assists and 688 points.
|4/14/2014||Jaromir Jagr, RW||Jagr had a pair of assists in the New Jersey Devils' season finale, a 3-2 win over Boston on Sunday.
Analysis: The seemingly ageless forward passed Gordie Howe for eighth on all-time list with his 1,050 assist. The 42-year-old Jagr had a team-best 67 points in 2013-14 and his 24 goals were good for second on the Devils behind Adam Henrique's 25. That would seem to indicate that Jagr might have at least a couple of productive seasons left in him should he choose to keep playing instead of simply waiting for the call from the Hockey Hall of Fame.
|4/14/2014||Marek Zidlicky, D||Zidlicky had a pair of goals in the season finale, a 3-2 win over Boston on Sunday.
Analysis: The New Jersey defenseman finished with 12 goals, tied for his second-most in one season. He had 42 points to rank fifth on Devils.
|4/14/2014||Martin Brodeur, G||Brodeur made 16 saves in what might have been his last start in a 20-year career with the Devils and New Jersey beat Boston 3-2 on Sunday as the Bruins rested many of their stars in preparation for the playoffs later this week.
Analysis: The soon-to-be 42-year-old Brodeur is in the final year of his contract and is likely to test the free-agent market now that he has become the backup to Cory Schneider. He added 19 wins to his NHL-record total (now 688) this season and had three shutouts to extend another mark to 124.
