Tatar (undisclosed) won't play in Game 2 versus the Lightning on Wednesday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports. At this point, it's hard to imagine Tatar will be featuring at any point in this series considering he has been out of the lineup for the last 13 contests. In terms of the left-wing spot with Tatar still on the shelf, Joel Armia will return to the fourth line while Artturi Lehkonen mans the top trio.
Tatar (undisclosed) will remain on the shelf heading into Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Lightning on Monday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports. Tatar has missed 12 straight contests for the Habs and could struggle to even break into the lineup once cleared play, especially if Joel Armia (not injury related) and Jake Evans (concussion) are both available. With Tatar set to hit free agency this summer, it's possible he has played his final game in a Habs sweater.
Tatar (undisclosed) will remain unavailable for Thursday's Game 6 clash with Vegas, John Lu of TSN.ca reports. Tatar will be out of the lineup for the 12th straight contest. Even before he was hurt, the winger was stuck in a 17-game goal drought during which he managed just four helpers while averaging 14:37 of ice time. Even once cleared to play, Tatar is far from a lock to break into the lineup, especially once Jake Evans (concussion) is cleared to play.
Tatar (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 versus the Golden Knights. Tatar will miss his 11th straight contest with the injury. There's been no word of the winger's timeline for a return. The 30-year-old's next chance to return is Thursday's Game 6 in Montreal.
Tatar (undisclosed) will not suit up for Game 4 against Vegas on Sunday, per NHL.com. Sunday's contest will mark Tatar's 10th consecutive absence but he was on the ice during warmups prior to Game 4. It's unclear if he's nearing a return or if he could be ready to go at some point during this series. The veteran forward will be questionable for Game 5 on Tuesday.
