Derek Morris sat out the morning skate because he's feeling sick. However, Claude Julien was hopeful that Morris would be in the lineup tonight.
"Hopefully," said Julien. "No reason to think he won't. At the same time, we're taking precautions as we've been talking about in the last week. We're getting him checked out and make sure he's fine, and that's it just a little bug, nothing more than that. If that's the case, he'll probably be ready to go. If not, we've got to live with the consequences."
If Morris is unavailable, Johnny Boychuk would enter the lineup.
