This series will be the last to start, and it will include a back-to-back for Games 4 and 5 as long as there isn’t a sweep. Defenseman Tom Poti said it was nice to get a few days between series, but Varlamov voiced some concern about playing two days in a row.
“It is tough. It is much better for a goalie to have at least a day off so you could recover from the previous game,” he said. “With back-to-backs, there’s almost negligible time to recover.”
Varlamov has yet to play NHL games on back-to-back days.
Jeff Schultz skated with the team again Thursday, but Boudreau said the defenseman isn’t likely to play, at least in the series’ first few games. …
Captain Chris Clark said he felt “great” a few days after making his playoff debut in Tuesday’s Game 7, playing 8:13. “I was ready for a while,” he said. “I just needed the opportunity, and I finally got it.”
