As of this afternoon, it was unclear if Claude Giroux — who missed the morning skate with an illness — would play today; Scott Gordon called him a game-time decision . Giroux hasn’t missed a game since the final game of the 2015-16 regular season (when he sat for rest before the playoffs) and hasn’t missed a game due to actual injury since February of that same season, so odds are he’ll find a way to play. But we’ll see. Lines below are what ran this morning; if Giroux does play, one would think that the entire set of right wings would all slide down a line and Justin Bailey would sit.
Claude Giroux is in. Below lineups are updated accordingly.
