Brayden Point (lower body) is doubtful for Game 1 against Florida on Tuesday night, per coach Jon Cooper. Point was not on the ice for Monday's practice after he was forced to leave Game 7 against Toronto in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs because of a lower-body injury. Cooper added that Point was expected to be day-to-day beyond the Round 2 opener.
