Hudler scored a pair of goals, dished out two assists, recorded a plus-3 rating and fired five shots on goal in Saturday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Canucks.

A terrific performance from Hudler, who finishes the first round with six points in six games. The 31-year-old continues to thrive on the top line with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau, as the line combined for eight points Saturday to eliminate the Canucks in six games. After posting 78 points in the regular season, look for the surging Hudler to continue his recent success in Round 2 against the Ducks.

Hudler did not participate in Saturday morning's skate, but will be in the lineup for Saturday evening's Game 6 against the Canucks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.

Hudler has struggled in the series so far, with two points to go with a minus-5 in five games. He hasn't appeared completely healthy since a rough night against the Kings back in early April, but neither of his linemates have played particularly well in the series either. They'll look to turn it around and close out the Canucks on Saturday night.

Hudler was not at practice Saturday morning, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.

Hudler hasn't played particularly well this playoff series, with two points and a minus-5 in five games. He could be struggling with an injury, as John Ramage was unexpectedly skating with the team Saturday morning. Hudler may be a game-time decision, so best look elsewhere for Saturday's games.

Hudler collected his first goal and assist of the playoffs -- both on the power play -- Tuesday in Game 4 against Vancouver.

He'd been held off the scoresheet -- and taken just three shots -- in the first three games of the series after racking up 76 points in the regular season, but Hudler finally found his offensive stride in this one. Now that he's broken the seal and the Flames -- up 3-1 in the series -- are poised to play a lot more games, Hudler makes for a fine fantasy play in daily formats.

Hudler (rest) is expected to be held out of Saturday's game against the Jets, Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reports.

The Flames punched their playoff ticket with a win over the Kings on Thursday, which will give coach Bob Hartley the opportunity to rest several key regulars for a meaningless season finale. Hudler turned in a career-best year to drive the Flames to the playoffs, generating 31 goals, 76 points, and a plus-17 rating over 78 games.

Hudler scored his 30th goal of the season Thursday, and it held up as the game-winner in the playoff-clinching victory. He added an empty-netter to boot.

Appropriate that Hudler would be the one to get the goal that sent the Flames on, as his breakout to elite status this season has been one of the most powerful driving forces in Calgary's run to the playoffs. He remains white-hot, with 16 points and a plus-9 rating over his last 11 contests.

Hudler tallied an assist Thursday in a 4-1 loss to St. Louis.

Hudler scored again and chipped in an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over Dallas. He also skated to a plus-3.

Hudler's prolific scoring pace continues, as he now has five points in two games against being held scoreless (in rare fashion) against Minnesota last Friday. He's up to 29 goals and 42 assist for 71 points (!) this season, and has been an unexpected fantasy monster for the Flames in 2014-15.

Hudler scored his 28th goal of the season and added an assist in Sunday's win over the Flames.

Hudler continues to roll, piling up nine goals and 21 points in his last 14 games. He's a man on a mission and is now sitting ninth in the NHL scoring race. The 31-year-old is a huge reason why the Flames are currently occupying a playoff spot and has become a must-start every game.

Hudler tallied a goal and assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

The top line of Hudler, Sean Monahan, and Johnny Gaudreau were the whole of the Calgary offense Saturday, as the trio had a hand in both of the team's goals. The veteran Hudler has quietly been the most productive member of the line this season, ranking ahead of both Monahan and Gaudreau in points (64) and plus/minus (plus-9). The point total already represents a career best for Hudler, who will have a legitimate shot at reaching the 70-point plateau with 10 games still remaining on the Flames' schedule.
