Fantasy Impact: It was only a matter of time before Boston's top line got going in the Finals. Bergeron accounted for three out of the five points produced by the big three Saturday.

Ivan Barbashev will not face any disciplinary action from the NHL after hitting Shark's forward Tomas Hertl in the second period of Game Five. (Source: Kevin Kurz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After reviewing the hit, the league determined that Barbashev got most of Hertl's body. As a result, no necessary disciplinary action needs to be taken by the league. Barbashev currently has four points through 18 games played this post-season.


It remains uncertain as to whether Tomas Hertl will be available for Game Six this Tuesday after taking a hard hit from Ivan Barbashev in Game Five. (Source: Curtis Pashelka on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Much like fellow teammates Joe Pavelski and Erik Karlsson, a decision has yet to be made if Hertl will get the green light to start in Game Six Tuesday. Hertl has 15 points through 19 games played this post-season.


Joonas Donskoi has stated that he feels fine after taking a puck to the face in Game Five and being forced to leave the contest shortly after. (Source: Curtis Pashelka on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Donskoi appears to be pretty optimistic about returning to the Shark's lineup for a critical Game Six showdown with the St. Louis Blues this Tuesday evening. With that being said, he should more than likely be ready to suit up unless told otherwise.

Martin Jones surrendered five goals on 40 shots faced in San Jose's 5-0 loss to the Blues Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Jones was peppered with a bounty of shots faced by the Blues during a 5-0 shutout in Game Five of the Western Conference Finals. Jones will need to put this one behind him quickly as he and his squad will have to get ready for a do-or-die Game Six battle in St. Louis Tuesday.

Curtis McElhinney surrendered three goals on 22 shots in a 4-0 series ending loss to the Boston Bruins Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: McElhinney did everything he could to help the Hurricanes get back into the series against Boston but it was no use.

McElhinney will finish the post-season with a 3-2 record, 2.01 GAA, and a 0.930 SV%.

David Perron stepped up Wednesday night as he buried two goals during a controversial 5-4 OT loss to the San Jose Sharks in Game Three.

Fantasy Impact: Perron did everything he could to try and help St. Louis secure a Game Three victory over the San Jose Sharks Wednesday. He ended up tying the game 3-3 16:03 into the second period and then helped his team take the lead 4-3 almost three minutes later with a power-play goal. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be as St. Louis was the victim of some bad bounces later on that would end up costing them dearly. Perron has now produced five points in his last five games played. He and teammates will look to even up the series at home this Friday night.
