In case of loss, Fehérváry could strengthen the Slovak national team at the World Championships in Helsinki. The Slovak spent almost 23 minutes on the ice in the match and recorded two consults. Another Slovak defender Erik Černák from Tampa Bay Lightning is also a match since the elimination.

Marián Studenič played 8:26 minutes during the loss of Dallas to Calgary 1: 3, after which the “stars” are close to falling out. In the quarterfinal series of the Western Conference, they lose 2: 3 in matches.

The threat of an early end was averted by the New York Rangers, who defeated Pittsburgh 5: 3 at home and reduced the series to 2: 3. In the guest Penguins’ jersey, Sidney Crosby played just under eleven minutes, who did not complete the duel due to an upper body injury.
