Coach Paul Maurice said before leaving on the trip that the Washington game on Saturday was a possibility for Michael Leighton, although the team has three off days afterwards in which to rest.
Also, defenseman Joni Pitkanen will miss tonight's game with an upper-body injury. Pitkanen took a big hit along the boards during last night's game in Chicago, causing him to leave the game halfway through the second period.
