Habs’ Wisniewski, Desharnais could miss Game 6

The Montreal Canadiens might be without defenseman James

Wisniewski and center David Desharnais for Game 6 of their

first-round playoff series against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday

night.

Neither player took part in Tuesday morning’s optional skate

after both missed significant parts of Saturday night’s 2-1

double-overtime loss in Boston. The Bruins lead the series 3-2.

Wisniewski left Game 5 for an undisclosed reason but returned in

overtime and finished the game. Desharnais suffered an apparent

knee injury in overtime.

Montreal coach Jacques Martin had no update on either player’s

condition and said both would be game-time decisions.
