“It’s a greasy elbow by Josty there,” Schenn said. “I understand he’s going into the battle, but you’ve got to know how to control your elbows and not get it up into the D-man’s face. One guy (Bortuzzo) is 6-foot-4 and one guy is 6-feet. That’s a pretty gross elbow and it’s tough to lose a guy like (Bortuzzo).
“And a guy like Kadri, the guy can’t control himself. In the playoffs, he’s a repeat offender, bad hits. He’s got a guy in a vulnerable position and picks nothing but the head. We need to focus on Games 3-4 and the league will take care of those guys’ hits.”
Pacioretty: “Making progress. I would still term him day to day.”
Nosek: “He’s still being evaluated. No update on his status.”
Forward Lars Eller missed last night’s game with a lower-body injury.
