Lucic absent from skate

Milan Lucic is not present for the morning skate, indicating he will not be available tonight. If he doesn’t play, if will be the second game out for Lucic, who was hurt in the third period of Monday’s 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.

Mark Stuart, however, is on the ice. This is Stuart’s first morning skate since breaking his right hand last month.

UPDATE: Claude Julien confirmed that Lucic will not play tonight.
