Michalek (concussion) tallied a goal in his return to the lineup for Wednesday's playoff-opening loss to the Canadiens.

Michalek was the closest Senators player near the puck when the Habs' Andrei Markov put it into his own net to give the visitors an early 1-0 lead. While the goal wasn't technically Michalek's own doing, he nonetheless made an impact right away, as he saw 15:58 of action while coach Dave Cameron deployed him on the Sens' second line. Michalek's reentry into the lineup bumped Mike Hoffman to a bottom-six role.

We'll track Michalek's status in the coming days, but assuming no setbacks, that the winger was skating with Ryan and Zibanejad at Monday's practice would appear to bode well for his chances of suiting up Wednesday against the Canadiens.

Coach Dave Cameron said Thursday that Michalek (concussion) is not close to a return.

Cameron indicated Michalek tried to "push it a little bit and didn't feel good" in a recent skate, so it looks like he'll be off the ice for at least the next several days. Don't expect the winger to return to game action before the end of the regular season.

Michalek's upper-body injury is being labeled as a concussion, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.

It's not overly surprisingly since Michalek was forced to exit Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs after taking a shot to the head. Michalek has yet to resume skating with the team and should be viewed as out indefinitely until the Senators provide word otherwise.
