Carolina forward Ryan Bayda
will sit out Game 4 against Boston on Friday night due to flu-like symptoms.
Bayda, who has provided energy and more than a few scoring chances as the team's fourth-line left wing, has been one of the biggest surprises of Carolina's run so far. He had an assist on Carolina's lone goal in its 4-1 Game 1 loss at Boston after scoring two goals in the first round against New Jersey.
Bayda will be replaced by Tim Conboy
, who has played in one game this postseason and is the more physical of the two players.
