Hedman registered a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Canadiens.

Hedman has been providing helpers throughout the playoffs as he's now up to five points in the postseason, but the goal was his first in 17 games dating back to March 16. After an impressive season, the defenseman can be counted on as one of the better options remaining on the blue line in the playoffs.

Hedman earned an assist and had three shots on goal in Thursday's Game 4 victory over the Red Wings.

Hedman's helper came on Tyler Johnson's game-winning goal, as the skilled defenseman led a 3-on-1 rush on the right side of the ice, before sliding the puck off Mrazek and into the waiting stick of an opportunistic Johnson. The goal capped an impressive comeback for the Bolts -- who were down 2-0 with less than six minutes to play -- and gave Hedman his second point of the series.

Hedman (lower body) said after Saturday's morning skate that he hopes to return to the lineup for next Thursday's game against the Devils, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Hedman didn't take the ice Saturday until after the team's healthy regulars had departed, but he hopes to join the squad for practice beginning Tuesday. The blueliner noted after his rigorous skating session that it was the best he's felt since sustaining the injury earlier in the week against the Canadiens. Some bad luck on the injury front has ruined what might have been a Norris Trophy-worthy season for Hedman, who has accumulated 10 goals, 37 points, and a plus-12 rating over 57 games.
