Two hours to go. I want to reach 700 entrants. Don't make those other two pools beat mine. They're just chumps! You have until 7pm to pick your 20 players. It is free. CLICK HERE


Some long-awaited Steve Sullivan news – he will definitely miss the first two games of the postseason. He will be re-evaluated at that point. He'll be a late-round steal in your draft, as most will stay away from him. I'll be looking to grab him in the last round of The Hockey News' office pool today.


As mentioned yesterday, Martin Erat is probable for tonight.


The Lightning will go with Holmqvist as their starter – and Kari Ramo as the backup. Marc Denis is as deep in the doghouse as you can get.


Tim Connolly will center Adam Mair and Drew Stafford. The latter getting into the lineup surprises me and is a testament to how well the rookie has played.


Steve Rucchin is out for the playoffs. Do not take him in your postseason draft under any circumstances. His concussion is not getting any better. 


With Bill Guerin returning to action, Joe Pavelski will be a healthy scratch. Keep that in mind – Pavelski is a victim of the numbers game.


📢 advertisement:

Richard Zednik will be back in the Islanders lineup tomorrow. He had been in Slovakia for a couple of weeks for personal reasons. 


As noted yesterday, it is looking pretty positive that Marcel Hossa will be in the lineup tonight and will resume his role on a line with Jagr and Nylander. SLEEPER PICK as I noted in my Playoff Draft List that I'm sure you bought to support the site.


Kitchener, Waterloo, Stratford, Cambridge, Guelph readers note: I have a large article in today's K/W Record. Buy it, read it, win your pool, email the Record and let them know how great you think I am!


Colby Armstrong has four points in four games against the Sens this year.
