Schwartz had two assists Saturday as the Blues won 4-3 in overtime in Game 5 of their playoff series to eliminate the Wild in the first round.

Analysis: After closing out the regular season with five goals and six assists over his final 11 games, Schwartz notched two goals and three assists in the series. He also had a good postseason last year, compiling 14 points (4 goals, 10 assists) in 20 games during the Blues' run to the Western Conference finals.
4/23/2017 Magnus Paajarvi, StL, LW
Paajarvi scored at the 9:42 mark in overtime, giving the Blues a 4-3 victory on Saturday in Game 5 of their playoff series to eliminate the Wild in the first round.

Analysis: Paajarvi had 13 points in 32 regular-season games and had an assist in the first four games of the series.
4/23/2017 Jori Lehtera, StL, C
Lehtera had two assists Saturday as the Blues won 4-3 in overtime in Game 5 of their playoff series to eliminate the Wild in the first round.

Analysis: Lehtera, who had 15 assists in 64 regular-season games, made just his second appearance of the series.
4/22/2017 Eric Staal, Min, C
Staal crashed head-first into the boards in Game 5 of the Wild's playoff series on Saturday against St. Louis that sent him to a nearby hospital for further observation.

Analysis: The Wild announced that Staal was alert and stable, before play began in the third period. Minnesota was later eliminated so Staal has plenty of time to heal.
4/22/2017 Tom Pyatt, Ott, LW
Pyatt (upper body) remained sidelined for Sunday's Game 6 as the Senators won their opening-round series with Boston.

Analysis: Pyatt also missed Game 5 after taking a shot to the head from Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller in Wednesday's Game 4. Though Pyatt had just nine goals during the regular season, he's one of Ottawa's top penalty-killing forwards.
4/22/2017 Ryan Spooner, Bos, C
Spooner again won't be in the lineup when the Bruins host Ottawa in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

Analysis: Spooner is dealing with a minor injury, though the belief his absence from Friday's Game 5 was performance-related. With Sean Kuraly scoring two goals - including the game-winner in the second overtime - in the center's place - it's no surprise Spooner will be in the press box once more.
