M. Tkachuk - F
Matthew Tkachuk was banged up in Thursday's Game 2 loss to the Dallas Stars.
For a lack of better words, Tkachuk took a beating from the moment the puck was dropped until he left the ice, never to return. The straw that seemed to break the camel's back was when he was sandwiched on a huge collision by Jamie Benn and Jamie Oleksiak. Tkachuk was wobbly getting off the ice and with Game 3 scheduled for Friday night on a short turnaround, we wouldn't be surprised if Tkachuk was unable to dress tomorrow.

C. Talbot - G
Cam Talbot allowed five goals on 36 shots in Thursday’s 5-4 Game 2 loss to the Dallas Stars.
It was a shaky night for Talbot. His worst moment came when he gave up an incredible weak goal to Miro Heiskanen on an innocent shot from the half-wall. Regardless, the Flames were able to tie this late but Talbot continued to look shaky after that. Bobbling some easy looking shots in the final couple of minutes before the Stars were able to come away with the winner in the last 40 seconds of regulation. With Game 3 scheduled as a back-to-back, we wouldn’t be surprised to see David Rittich in goal for the Flames on Friday night.

S. Bennett - C
Sam Bennett scored a goal in Thursday’s 5-4 Game 2 loss to the Dallas Stars.
Trailing late, Bennett scored a power play goal on a redirect that looked like it would send this game to overtime but the Stars had other plans. Bennett has had a great return to play, scoring three goals and totaling four points in six games. More importantly, his line with Milan Lucic and Dillon Dube have been tough to play against through two games for the Stars. These two teams will be back in action for Game 3 on Friday night.

B. Bishop - G
Ben Bishop allowed four goals on 26 shots in Thursday’s 5-4 Game 2 win over the Calgary Flames.
The Stars led 4-2 after the first two periods but a shorthanded goal by Tobias Rieder and a Sam Bennett power play goal with under three minutes made it seem like we’d see overtime in this one. However, the Stars continued to apply pressure and were rewarded with a goal with only four seconds left in regulation. This was Bishop’s first start of the Playoffs. He gave up a weak goal to Derek Forbort but overall looked like a goalie the Stars can rely on. Game 3 is scheduled for Friday night and it will be interesting to see if Anton Khudobin will be in goal.

M. Heiskanen - D
Miro Heiskanen scored a couple of goals in Thursday’s 5-4 Game 2 win over the Calgary Flames.
A complete miscue by the Flames sent Heiskanen all alone on Cam Talbot and Dallas’ star blueliner made no mistake with his quick shot. Heiskanen’s second of the night was an odd one, somehow beating Talbot with an innocent looking shot from the half-boards. It’s Heiskanen’s first two goals since the restart, bringing him to seven points in five games. He led all skaters with 25:20 TOI.

D. Pastrnak - F
Speaking after Game 2, head coach Bruce Cassidy mentioned David Pastrnak (unfit to play) will be a game-time decision for Game 3.
The Bruins will have a hard time gauging Pastrnak's fitness level due to Game 3 being scheduled at noon Eastern, leaving them without a morning skate. Cassidy added in the Game 2 post-game presser, that the team doesn't believe it to be a long-term injury and that the team is targeting a Game 3 return. Although unconfirmed, it appears Pastrnak was injured celebrating Patrice Bergeron's overtime winner at the end of Game 1.

T. Rask - G
Tuukka Rask allowed three goals on 26 shots in Thursday's 3-2 Game 2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.
A tough night for Rask who was put in bad spots by his teammates on all three goals. First, Teuvo Teravainen was allowed to get into a great scoring chance for Carolina's first of the night. That was followed up by Andrei Svechnikov being left alone in the slot for an easy goal. Finally, former teammate, Dougie Hamilton had a clear lane to blast one over his shoulder for the winner. Rask has now won just one of his four starts since the restart. The Bruins will need to be much better on Saturday afternoon for Game 3 if they do not wish to trail in this series.

J. Reimer - G
James Reimer allowed two goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 3-2 Game 2 win over the Boston Bruins.
It was a tough start to the game for Reimer, who got caught down early on David Krejci's opening goal of the game. However, Reimer bounced back from there, playing solid over the final two frames while the Hurricanes were outshot 29-19. The veteran netminder has now won both of his starts since the return from lockdown, stopping a combined 71 of 74 shots he has faced. Head coach Rob Brind'Amour will need to seriously think about who he wants to have between the pipes for Game 3, scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
