Igor Shesterkin has been nominated for the Hart Trophy. Shesterkin is the heavy favorite to win the Vezina Trophy, but the Hart is up in the air. It's rare for goaltenders to take home the Hart, but he's certainly worthy of it. He was a massive part of the Rangers' success with a 36-13-4 record, 2.07 GAA, and .935 save percentage in 53 contests this season.

Sidney Crosby (upper body) will be evaluated further once the team gets back to Pittsburgh on Thursday, per coach Mike Sullivan. Crosby will travel with the team, which is a bit encouraging, after he left Wednesday's Game 5 matchup against the New York Rangers. "His injury is an upper-body injury," added Sullivan. "I'm not going to get into more specifics with that." The Penguins didn't hold a practice on Thursday morning because of their travel plans.
