Zibanejad did not play after ending his second shift of the third period at 4:51.

"I have no idea what it's all about, but it was for purely precautionary reasons that we couldn't do stuff here that they could do there," Senators coach Paul MacLean said.

Zibanejad was present Friday for the team picture, according to media reports. He will have further tests, Ottawa Sun writer Bruce Garrioch reported, and is being held out of the lineup as a precaution.

Ottawa won 2-1 in a shootout. Zibanejad assisted on a second-period goal by Mike Hoffman.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
