The Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers both hit the ice this morning for practice as they prepare for Game 1 of their playoff series which opens up on Wednesday.
Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault revealed to the media that the team might be without one of their key forwards for Game 1.
Winger Jakub Voracek who missed the team's last round robin game will be a game time decision for Game 1.
He was deemed "unfit to play" for the team's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Voracek had one assist in the team's other two round robin games and was replaced by youngster Joel Farabee against Tampa.
"He will be skating today," coach Alain Vigneault said Monday. "Still a game-time decision."
The 30 year old registered 12 goals and 44 assists during the regular season in 69 games which included two assists in three games against the Canadiens.
Jakub Voracek will be a game-time decision for the Flyers when they play the Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS). Get the latest with the Stanley Cup Playoffs Buzz. https://t.co/lcsPlk8B44
