Toronto Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov will miss Game 3 against the Boston Bruins because of a lower-body injury.
Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said at Monday morning's game-day skate that the 31-year-old Finn is day-to-day and that he hopes to have him back for Game 4 on Thursday.
"He's going to skate tomorrow, and then will skate the following day and be a game-time decision (for Game 4)," said Babcock.
Centre Dominic Moore will take Komarov's spot in the lineup. Moore sat out the first two games of the series as a healthy scratch.
Boston leads the first-round series 2-0, having outscored Toronto 12-4 in two games at TD Garden.
Komarov was originally hurt in Saturday's Game 2 in Boston.
