Eric Gryba (upper body) will not participate in Game 2 on Friday.
Gryba collided with Brooks Orpik late in the second period of Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. There's some speculation that he might have a concussion, but that hasn't been confirmed.
Paul MacLean is one of the three finalists for the Jack Adams Award.
Anaheim's Bruce Boudreau and Chicago's Joel Quenneville are the other candidates for the award that will go "to the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success." It would be surprising if MacLean misses out on this award. His Senators had to overcome major injuries to Craig Anderson, Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek, and Jason Spezza. The fact that they managed to make the playoffs despite that is incredible.
Erik Karlsson agreed with coach Paul MacLean's assessment that he isn't playing up to his past standards since returning from his Achilles injury.
"I'm not playing the way I did when I got hurt and that's just the way it is," Karlsson said. "I'm trying to figure it out. Every once in a while it works and you feel pretty good out there. I've got to find the consistent game as well." Even a partially healthy Karlsson is valuable to the Senators though, as they continue to play in the postseason against Pittsburgh in the second round.
Guillaume Latendresse may return to Ottawa's lineup in Game 2 versus Pittsburgh.
He took Matt Kassian's spot on the third line with Zack Smith and Chris Neil during Thursday's practice. Latendresse played in two games against Montreal in Round 1 and he had one goal.
Eric Gryba (upper body) hasn't been ruled out of playing in Game 2 on Friday.
If Gryba is unavailable then Andre Benoit or Mike Lundin will take his place in the lineup. He sustained an upper-body injury, which may have been a concussion, when he collided with Brooks Orpik late in the second period of Ottawa's semifinal opener against Pittsburgh.
