WILMINGTON -- Glen Murray will most likely miss the next two games because of an injured hip flexor.

Murray didn't practice today and Claude Julien said he will be re-evaluated after Christmas, making him unavailable tomorrow and Sunday against Pittsburgh. Murray left in the second period of last night's game and didn't return.

Peter Schaefer (bruised left foot) and Andrew Alberts (post-concussion syndrome symptoms) also didn't practice and are questionable for tomorrow's matinee against St. Louis.

Dennis Wideman was given today off but Julien said he will play tomorrow.

* Milan Lucic took Murray's spot on the No. 1 power-play unit. Lucic manned the front of the net, with Marco Sturm and Glen Metropolit hovering down low. Later during practice, Julien swapped out Metropolit and Lucic for Phil Kessel and Chuck Kobasew. Zdeno Chara and Marc Savard played the points.

* Chara and Savard took to the Ristuccia Arena ice after practice to tape a Versus commercial.

* During power-play drills, Julien served as the lone penalty-killer stationed in the high slot.

Today's lines, which Julien said might be tweaked tomorrow:

Sturm-Savard-Kessel
Axelsson-Metropolit-Kobasew
Lucic-Sobotka-Bochenski
Reich-Nokelainen-Thornton
