Habs' Wisniewski, Desharnais could miss Game 6 @NHLdotcom

MONTREAL (AP) - The Montreal Canadiens might be without defenseman James Wisniewski and center David Desharnais for Game 6 of their first-round playoff series against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.

Neither player took part in Tuesday morning's optional skate after both missed significant parts of Saturday night's 2-1 double-overtime loss in Boston. The Bruins lead the series 3-2.

Wisniewski left Game 5 for an undisclosed reason but returned in overtime and finished the game. Desharnais suffered an apparent knee injury in overtime.

Montreal coach Jacques Martin had no update on either player's condition and said both would be game-time decisions.
