Nutivaara was absent from Monday's practice session with an undisclosed injury, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

Nutivaara was on the receiving end of a hit from Nikita Kucherov, which saw the Russian winger suspended for one game. The fact that coach John Tortorella was unable to provide an update on Nutivaara doesn't bode well for the blueliner to return to the lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 versus Tampa Bay after previously missing Game 3 on Sunday.
