News: Purcell scored Tampa Bay's only goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to Montreal in Game 2 of their Atlantic Division semifinal series. Impact: Purcell had been rather quiet in the final third of the season with just two goals in 31 games (none in 30) but the goal came with Tampa Bay already losing 4-0. The Bolts will need a player like Purcell, who had some decent looks Friday, to get on the scoreboard if they're going to send the series back to Florida for Game 5.(RotoWire, )

News: Purcell, who is currently toiling on Tampa's fourth line after a poor season, hopes the playoffs will boost his game, reports the Tampa Bay Times. "It's so much easier to get up for games in the playoffs," said Purcell. Impact: C'mon -- you're having trouble getting up for regular season games? You're a pro athlete making bushels of dollars compared to the rest of us. Now that we have that off our chest ... Purcell was a force in 2011 when he had 17 points in 18 playoff games. But that was when Vinny Lecavalier was in town and Teddy was getting time on the power play, too. He has just two goals in his last 31 games and they both came in a single game (March 20). If you believe in the Bolts, Purcell might be a cheap addition to your playoff roster.(RotoWire, )

News: Purcell is dealing with a case of the flu and will not play Friday against the Blue Jackets, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: The Bolts announced both Purcell and Valtteri Filppula (lower body) as late scratches Friday, leaving the team a little bit thin at forward. Purcell should be considered questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Capitals.(RotoWire, )
