Brenden Morrow's tweaked groin will prevent him from playing Saturday night.
"He didn't skate yesterday and he's not much better today," coach Glen Gulutzan said Saturday morning. "He's not going to go tonight. It's our window here to get it better. Yesterday a day off, a day off for him today and a day off tomorrow, then we'll see if he can skate on Monday." Morrow has 11 points and 38 hits in 23 games this campaign. The pending unrestricted free agent has been the subject of trade rumors with the deadline less than a month away.
