The Montreal Canadiens will be without a key piece of their defense on Tuesday when they take on the Lightning.
Petry missed the last half of the third period of Montreal’s win over Carolina on Sunday, which could be related to the injury in question. He finished with just 16:03 TOI, well off the 21:21 he averages per game.
The loss could be a big one for the Habs, who’ve won two straight for the first time since November. Petry often played on a pairing with Alexei Emelin and was on the club’s second power-play unit.
With Petry out, it’s possible that Nathan Beaulieu could draw back into the lineup.
