'It boosted my confidence': John Klingberg embraces boos from Flames fans

It's cute that some people in Calgary think they can throw John Klingberg off his game with a few well-placed hits or a chorus of boos when he touches the puck. I mean we're talking about a 29-year-old defenseman who has spent a good part of the past year trying to negotiate a contract extension and could have to test the market this summer as an unrestricted free agent. Klingberg, who's scheduled to marry his long-time sweetheart Fanny Hammarstrand (who's expecting their second child) this summer.

Stars' John Klingberg: Keeps mixing it up

Klingberg notched an assist and seven PIM in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Flames in Game 3. Klingberg has drawn the ire of the Flames in this series, fighting in two of the three contests. He's racked up a total of 26 PIM. That's limited the 29-year-old's ability to contribute on offense, as his assist is his only point in the series. He's also picked up three blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in a top-four role -- when he's not stuck in the sin bin.

Stars' John Klingberg: Picks up lower-body issue

Klingberg will not play against Anaheim on Friday due to a lower-body problem, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. Klingberg is still expected to be ready to play in the postseason, according to Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio, but certainly it is something for fantasy players to monitor. Without Klingberg in the lineup, Miro Heiskanen figures to jump up to the No. 1 power-play unit while Joel Hanley enters the lineup for the first time since April 20 against Edmonton.
