The Montreal Canadiens will try and go for the sweep tonight as they host the Winnipeg Jets at the Bell Centre for Game 4.
The Canadiens have a very nice 3-0 lead in the series and the opportunity to get some rest and heal up as the Vegas/Colorado series looks like it could go 7 games.
Unfortunately during last night's game, the team lost defenseman Jeff Petry.
Radio host Tony Marinaro reports that Petry has dislocated two fingers on his right hand and doctors were able to replace the bones without an operation.
Several analysts feared that Petry might have suffered a very serious injury that would have forced him to miss the next round of the playoffs.
However this is great news for Petry as he's one of the most important pieces on the back end.
Head coach Dominique Ducharme mentioned during today's presser that Petry will take warm ups and be a gametime decision.
If Petry can't go, Xavier Ouellet or Alexander Romanov will take his place.
Hearing that Jeff Petry's last two fingers of his right hand were dislocated. Doctor was able to put the bone back in place without surgery for now so he can still play in the playoffs. Will have surgery at the end of the playoffs. #HABS #TSN690
