UPDATE: General manager Paul Holmgren, who earlier in the day said Chris Pronger was fine, announced Monday night that the star defenseman will not play in Game 2.
He said Jeff Carter, Andreas Nodl and Michael Leighton are all day-to-day
FROM EARLIER: Chris Pronger did not participate in today's morning skate and his availability for tonight's game is cloudy. Coach Peter Laviolette deferred comment to general manager Paul Holmgren, who was not at the Wells Fargo Center. It's unclear whether his absence was injury-related and a team spokesman said an update would be coming from Homer at some point soon.
Laviolette did say that Brian Boucher was starting in net for tonight's Game 2 against the Bruins. Boucher gave up five goals in Saturday's loss, but Laviolette said tonight was about redemption for the entire team, which includes his goaltender.
