Manny Malhotra skated for the sixth straight day today.

 

Patrice Bergeron also skated and looks to be progressing. He left before the contact began, but could be back for game three or four if he continues to improve at this rate.

 

Gates has posted his Top 100 Roto Players for May. Access it by clicking here, or on the left hand side of the home page.

 

Mikael Granlund had an absolutely awesome World Championships. His value dropped a bit after missing a few months last season due to a concussion, but he appears to be back on track (and then some).

 

Jason Demers was a no go for the Sharks last night – minor injury. Kent Huskins took his spot. No word on Demer’s availability for game two.

 

Calgary has extended Curtis Glencross for four years (at a cap hit of $2.5 million per). Not a bad contract for a versatile depth scorer who brings a lot to the table. There would have been no shortage of offers had Glencross waited until July 1st.

Joe Thornton had a strong first period for the Sharks, but the best forward from start to finish was definitely Logan Couture.

 

@dtolensky: Since the benching vs Chicago, Roberto Luongo has won six of his last eight starts, allowing just 14 goals on 225 shots- 1.58 GAA, .938 SVP.

 

Ryane Clowe still isn’t right from the Kronwall hit – he was not his usual self in terms of physical involvement.

 

Can’t believe I missed this a few days ago. Is Radulov really going to return? Perhaps Dobber’s April Fools joke will indeed come true…
