It’s likely that Matt Read would center the No. 2 line with James van Riemsdyk and Wayne Simmonds.

“Our team has faced a lot of adversity with all the injuries,” Read said. “It is just another guy out of the lineup. It’s a huge loss for our team and it’s a matter of our guys stepping up and for myself being put in the position to take over his role, I guess for the night. It’s a lot of weight on my shoulders filling his role, I guess.”

Here were other injury updates from Holmgren.

Brayden Schenn (concussion). “Brayden skated and did his off-ice conditioning again today and has made good strides. Day to day.”
Sean Couturier (head injury) “Sean skated today and did his off-ice conditioning. Day to day.”
