Filppula scored the lone Tampa Bay goal in Saturday's Game 5 loss to Chicago.

Filppula now has three points in the Stanley Cup Finals, giving him 14 points in 25 games this postseason. The 31-year-old struck on the power play Saturday -- his second goal with the man advantage this postseason and his fourth tally overall. With just two goals in his last 16 games, Filppula, who had 25 goals in his first season with Tampa Bay in 2013-14, will need to come up big in Game 6 Tuesday if the Lightning hope to live another day.

Filppula assisted on the Lightning's lone goal in Wednesday's Game 4 loss to the Blackhawks.

Though they were responsible for Tampa's only scoring in Game 4, the trio of Alex Killorn, Steven Stamkos, and Filppula have been mostly invisible so far this series, combining for modest totals of two goals, three assists, and 27 SOG over four games. Filppula has probably been the least impactful of the lot throughout the postseason, as he's somehow sitting on a minus-7 rating over 24 games.

Filppula scored the game-winning goal in Game 5 Sunday against the Rangers.

It was the third goal of the postseason for Filppula, who has racked up four points in his last three games. Skating with Steve Stamkos, Filppula is having a decent postseason, notching 10 points in 18 games. He doesn't shoot much, but when he does, it can be lethal. Filppula's struck twice on the power play this postseason and is averaging 20:30 of ice time, making him a reliable scoring option who has helped Tampa Bay grab a 3-2 stranglehold on their series against the Rangers.

Filppula recorded a pair of assists in Monday's Game 2 win over the Rangers.

The two-assist game was Filppula's third multi-point effort of the playoffs as he's now up to eight points in the postseason. He started off each of the first two rounds hot, but he failed to work his way onto the scoresheet after Game 2 against both the Red Wings and Canadiens, so he'll look to keep up his production as the series shifts to Tampa on Wednesday.
