It is unclear when he sustained the injury. Kevin Love chipped in with 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Cavs secured a 10th straight post-season win, and there appears little to suggest the Celtics can find a way to stop them when the series shifts to Cleveland for Game Three on Sunday.

The Scot was defeated in straight sets 6-3, 6-3 by unseeded 20-year-old Croatian Borna Coric in what is arguably the best result of his career.

Late goal gives Predators 2-1 series lead over Ducks

As good as the Ryan trade is now for Ottawa, it has been superb for Anaheim as Silfverberg had 18 points in the 2015 postseason and this year is tied with captain Ryan Getzlaf for the team lead in goals with eight, one behind Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel for the most in the playoffs.
