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.

Brad Richards is scratched for a second straight game. Arron Asham is also scratched.

Chris Kreider - Derek Stepan - Rick Nash

Carl Hagelin - Derick Brassard - Ryan Callahan

Taylor Pyatt - Brian Boyle - Mats Zuccarello

Micheal Haley - Kris Newbury - Derek Dorsett

Ryan McDonagh - Michael Del Zotto

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
