NHL Morning Skate for Monday, May 22, 2017: Stanley Cup Playoffs edition

 

SUNDAY’S RESULT
Home Team in Caps
PITTSBURGH 7, Ottawa 0 – PIT leads 3-2

OFFENSIVE OUTBURST LEADS PENGUINS TO 3-2 SERIES LEAD
Pittsburgh scored four goals in the first period en route to a 7-0 victory in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final. The Penguins moved within one win of reaching the Stanley Cup Final for the second straight season and aim to become the first NHL team to make consecutive appearances since they faced the Red Wings in back-to-back years in 2008 (DET: 4-2) and 2009 (PIT: 4-3).

* The Penguins earned a margin of victory of at least seven goals in a playoff shutout for the fourth time in franchise history. In fact, Game 5 of the 2017 Eastern Conference Final marked just the third time in the past 10 playoff years that a team earned a shutout with a margin of victory of at least seven goals, and the second time this postseason (SJS: 7-0 W vs. EDM in Game 4 of FR).

* Elias notes that in the NHL’s expansion era (since 1967-68), Game 5 marked just the fifth time a team earned a margin of victory of at least seven goals in a shutout in the Conference Finals/Semi-Finals or later, and the first since 2002 (DET: 7-0 W vs. COL in Game 7 of CF).

* It also marked the first seven-goal margin of any kind in a Conference Finals game since the same Detroit victory in 2002 (7-0 W vs. COL).

* Pittsburgh’s four goals in the first 20 minutes of Game 5 were two shy of the franchise playoff record for most goals in a period (6), achieved in the opening frame of Game 5 of the 1989 Division Finals vs. PHI (10-7 W).

Evgeni Malkin collected three assists and leads all skaters with 6-17—23 in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (17 GP). Malkin (54-98—152 in 141 GP) became the 29th player in NHL history to record 150 career postseason points and leapfrogged Mario Lemieux (96) for second on the franchise’s all-time assists list. Malkin also skated in his 141st career playoff game (all w/ PIT) to pass Jaromir Jagr (140) for the most in franchise history.

Matt Murray, who made his first start of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs in Game 4, denied 25 shots in Game 5 to record his second career postseason shutout (also Game 4 of 2016 FR at NYR). He improved to 17-6 in 24 career playoff appearances (1.97 GAA, .927 SV%, 2 SO).

* When teams are tied 2-2 in a best-of-seven series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the winner of Game 5 holds an all-time series record of 198-54, including a 5-0 mark this postseason.

CROSBY CONTINUES TO PRODUCE IN POSTSEASON
Penguins captain Sidney Crosby (1-1—2) scored for the third straight game (3-2—5) and ranks second among all skaters with 7-12—19 in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (16 GP).

* Crosby (56-100—156 in 140 GP) became the 22nd player in NHL history to record 100 career postseason assists and just the second active skater, joining Jaromir Jagr (78-123—201 in 208 GP). Elias adds that only three players in the past 20 years have reached the 100-assist milestone in fewer playoff games: Adam Oates in 1998 (126 GP), Al MacInnis in 1999 (132 GP) and Peter Forsberg in 2006 (136 GP).

* Crosby has recorded 38 points versus the Senators in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, his most against any NHL opponent (17-21—38 in 25 GP).

LOOSE PUCKS
Penguins forward Carter Rowney (0-3—3) collected his first three career playoff points (12 GP) . . . Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta opened the scoring for the second straight game and has collected 2-5—7 in 17 games in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, matching his total from the 2016-17 regular season (1-6—7 in 55 GP) . . . Penguins forward Matt Cullen scored his second goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (17 GP). Elias adds that Cullen became the first player to score multiple goals in a single postseason at 40 years of age or older since Teemu Selanne in 2014 (2 w/ ANA) . . . Sweden defeated Canada in a shootout to win the gold medal at the 2017 IIHF World Hockey Championship, while Russia defeated Finland to earn the bronze . . . Actor Michael Keaton, a Pennsylvania native, was in attendance at PPG Paints Arena for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final . . . ICYMI: A big crowd of enthusiastic fans greeted the Predators at the airport as they returned to Nashville for Monday’s Game 6.

PREDATORS AIM TO CLINCH FIRST-EVER BERTH IN THE STANLEY CUP FINAL
The Predators, who began play in 1998-99 and are competing in their 10th postseason, aim to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history when they host the Ducks in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final at Bridgestone Arena. Nashville owns a 3-2 series lead for the third time in franchise history and have won Game 6 in each of the two previous instances – the 2011 Conference Quarterfinals vs. ANA and the 2017 Second Round vs. STL. The Predators own a 6-1 record at home during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs while the Ducks are 5-2 on the road, including a 3-2 overtime victory in Game 4 to snap Nashville’s playoff home win streak at 10 games.

Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb has been named the National League Player of the Week for the period ending May 21st.

Outfielder Matt Kemp (.464, 7 R, 13 H, 6 XBH) was also excellent for the Atlanta Braves last week. Entering play today, the two-time NL All-Star (2011-12) has reached base safely in every game since April 21st, a 25-game stretch that has seen him bat .355 (38-for-107) with 19 runs scored, nine doubles, six home runs and 21 RBI. In the midst of an excellent month of May, Kemp has recorded a hit in 16-of-18 games and has seen his batting average increase by 30 points, from an already-excellent .321 to .351. Moreover, second baseman Adam Frazier (.500, 5 R, 12 H, 2 2B) of the Pittsburgh Pirates propelled the Buccos to a 4-2 record during his great week. The Mississippi State University product has logged multi-hit efforts in each of his last six starts. Since breaking into the Majors last season, the Pirates are 15-4 in games which Frazier collects at least two hits. In 14 games as Pittsburgh’s leadoff hitter, the 25-year-old is hitting .413 (26-for-63) with 10 runs scored and nine RBI. Other noteworthy performances last week included starting pitcher Carlos Martínez (0.00 ERA, 9.0 IP, 5 SO) of the St. Louis Cardinals; first baseman Justin Bour (.375, 9 H, 4 HR, .917 SLG) of the Miami Marlins; and starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg (2-0, 3.29 ERA, 13.2 IP, 14 SO) of the Washington Nationals.

In recognition of his National League Player of the Week Award, Jake Lamb will be awarded a watch courtesy of Rockwell.

Lamb batted .412 (7-for-17) with seven runs scored, a double, four home runs and 10 RBI over five games to claim his second career NL Player of the Week Award, last winning on July 17, 2016. Among his NL counterparts, Jake finished the period first in RBI and slugging percentage (1.176); tied for first in runs scored and home runs; second in on-base percentage (.565); tied for second in extra-base hits (5) and walks (6); third in total bases (20); and sixth in batting average. This is Arizona’s first weekly award since Jake’s teammate Brandon Drury took home NL weekly honors last season (September 18th).

On Friday night against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, Lamb went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and five RBI. It was Jake’s first career multi-home run game and he also established a career-high in RBI. With his fourth round-tripper in three games, the Seattle, Washington native homered in three consecutive games for the second time in his career (also June 28-July 1, 2016). Lamb, who was drafted by Arizona in the sixth round of the 2012 MLB Draft, followed up his explosive Friday night performance by going 2-for-3 on Saturday with two runs scored, a double and two RBI. It was the fourth straight game that the University of Washington product plated at least one run, a stretch that saw him bat .500 (7-for-14) with a double, four home runs and 10 RBI. The multi-hit effort also extended his hitting streak to eight games, a torrid stretch in which he slashed .469/.564/.938 with seven extra-base hits, eight runs scored and 13 RBI, leading the Diamondbacks to a 6-2 record. Arizona’s offense has served as the catalyst for their strong start to the 2017 campaign. Among NL teams entering play today, the D-backs rank first in runs scored (246) and hits (417); second in batting average (.267); and third in home runs (62), on-base percentage (.335) and slugging percentage (.453). Arizona is tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the third-best record in the senior circuit (26-19).
