Darroll Powe was on the ice for pregame warmups at TD Garden, but he will not play. Powe hasn't played since Game 3 of the conference quarterfinals.

Chris Kreider - Derek Stepan - Rick Nash

Carl Hagelin - Derick Brassard - Ryan Callahan

Taylor Pyatt - Brian Boyle - Mats Zuccarello

Micheal Haley - Kris Newbury - Derek Dorsett

Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
