One national semifinal (5 p.m. ET; ESPN2) will feature Nebraska-Omaha, in its first Frozen Four, facing Providence, which has advanced to the Frozen Four for the first time since 1985.

The second semifinal (8:30 p.m. ET; ESPN2) will see Boston University and Jack Eichel, college hockey's leading scorer and the No. 2 player on NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American skaters for the 2015 NHL Draft, facing North Dakota.

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was scratched Wednesday to give him another night of rest.

The move came after coach Bruce Boudreau left open the possibility of Getzlaf sitting when he did not participate in the morning skate before Anaheim played the Dallas Stars at Honda Center.

It is the second straight game that Getzlaf has been scratched. Boudreau suggested after the Ducks' 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche last Friday that Getzlaf wasn't fully healthy, although Getzlaf has practiced in each of the past two days.

Red Wings' Cole out for season with spine contusion

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 3:26 PM / News

NHL.com

Detroit Red Wings forward Erik Cole said Wednesday he has been advised by doctors to sit out the remainder of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs because of a spine contusion.

Cole said he sustained the injury in the first period of an overtime loss against the Arizona Coyotes on March 24. He had missed the past eight games with what was termed a neck injury. The Red Wings acquired the veteran left wing in a trade with the Dallas Stars on March 1.

"I consulted with a few doctors last week and I've been advised not to play the remainder of this season," Cole said Wednesday, according to MLive.com. "Just really disappointing and I was looking forward to be a part of the playoff run here and helping this team make a run to the [Stanley] Cup and I'm not going to be able to do that.

"Doctors feel that right now there's just a little too much risk for me to be playing, so just going to have to wait and see how things go down the road."

Canadiens' Pacioretty could return for start of playoffs

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 12:58 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will miss the final two games of the regular season with an upper-body injury, but there is a possibility he will return in time for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, coach Michel Therrien said Wednesday.

"It's a heavy loss, we won't hide that," Therrien said after practice. "He's a guy that had quality ice time, not only offensively but defensively. At the end of games when we're up a goal, he's the guy we send on the ice. We used him on the penalty kill. But don't make the mistake of tossing him aside. There's a possibility he plays next week."

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

The Stanley Cup Playoffs get started next week and that means another fantasy hockey season is in the books. It's hard to believe we all entered our drafts wide-eyed and hopeful roughly eight months ago dreaming of fantasy glory.

P.K. Subban (Montreal Canadiens), Erik Karlsson (Ottawa Senators), Shea Weber (Nashville Predators) and Duncan Keith (Chicago Blackhawks) were the first four defensemen off the board in Yahoo Standard Leagues and all were on rosters inside the first 40 picks. They rewarded their owners, but for those who waited around the rewards were still great.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
