St-Laurent suggested Friday morning that the Czech winger, sidelined since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last month, could play against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night. Here's what St-Laurent wrote on Twitter:
I have a very, very strong feeling Milan Michalek will play tonight. #Sens #LD
The injury has limited Michalek to just 15 games this season, and f he is ready to play in New Jersey, it would be a huge plus for the slumping Sens. Ottawa remains in playoff position in the Eastern Conference but had lost five straight games before beating the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday.
