Alzner (upper body) will not be in the lineup against the Maple Leafs on Friday, Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press reports.

Alzner will sit out his third straight outing after logging 26:17 of ice time in Game 2 -- his grandest total of the year. Considering the defenseman has registered one point in his last 24 outings, it is clearly not his offense that will be missed. With the 28-year-old sidelined, the responsibility has fallen to Nate Schmidt to fill the gap on the blue line.
