MONTREAL (AP) -Mark Streit has a hip injury and will sit out the Montreal Canadiens' playoff game against Boston on Thursday.
Coach Guy Carbonneau said Streit was injured in the second period of Game 4 on Tuesday in Boston and is day to day. Michael Ryder will replace Streit.
Montreal leads the best-of-7 Eastern Conference quarterfinal series 3-1 and can wrap it up with a victory Thursday.
Streit splits his time playing defense and left wing and the right point on the power play. Patrice Brisebois will likely take over the point.
Defenseman Francis Bouillon (ankle) and captain Saku Koivu (fractured foot) are also missing for Montreal. Neither is expected to play in the series.
