*Pacioretty is still out with a minor injury he sustained at training camp. DeBoer says he is “improving quickly”. When ready, he is expected to fly in a private plane to join the team.
*Marc-Andre Fleury will start in net. Coach DeBoer plans to play him the whole game. He will then rotate goalies each game so both Lehner and Fleury have adequate practice before the first round of the playoffs.
*Though the team is allowed to dress more than the usual 20 players for this game, DeBoer has opted to stick with the regular 20. He wants to mimic a real game situation as much as possible, and doesn’t want to take away any playing time from players who have made the final playoff roster.
