The few lineup questions to come out of yesterday’s practice weren’t really answered with today’s morning skate. Marc Methot participated, but didn’t look 100% comfortable. Boucher confirmed that he can play, but that they might want to give him a few more days to heal so it will be a game time decision.
Not much zip on Methot's passes this morning. #senators— Chris Stevenson (@CJ_Stevenson) April 12, 2017
For the forwards there wasn’t much in the way of line rushes to go off of, but there is the question of Tommy Wingels, Chris Kelly and Ryan Dzingel. It was Wingels in and Kelly & Dzingel out yesterday. When the players came out today, it looked like Kelly might be in for Wingels, but when the players left the ice Kelly stayed out with the black aces while Dzingel and Wingels left so it’s probably between those two.
Game time decision? Of course it is. Also, no names mentioned on a game time decision between whom.
Just going by colour scheme as the players trickle onto the ice for the morning skate, I think Kelly might play 2nite. Wingels could be out.— Steve Lloyd (@TSNSteveLloyd) April 12, 2017
A brief, repeated scare with the Captain who came out for two minutes then left the ice. Then came out, and left, and came out and left... Sounds like he was just testing out equipment adjustments for comfort with his foot. Boucher confirmed after the skate that Karlsson was just adjusting his taping.
