Petry will have a follow-up appointment to determine whether his finger injury will require surgery, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports. Petry evidently had to tape his fingers together in order to continue playing after getting his hand caught in a camera hole during Game 4 of Montreal's second-round series versus the Jets. If he's forced to undergo surgery in order to correct the issue, he could be in danger of missing time at the start of the 2021-22 campaign. The 33-year-old blueliner finished the 2020-21 season with 12 goals, 36 helpers and 164 shots on net through 75 contests.
Interim head coach Dominique Ducharme said Petry dealt with injuries to his fingers during the playoffs, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports. Petry missed two games during the postseason after getting his fingers caught in a camera hole in the glass in Game 4 versus the Jets. This is likely a lingering issue from that injury, although he was able to play through it for the last 10 games of the playoffs. The defenseman had six assists, 51 hits, 31 blocked shots and 36 shots on net through 20 playoff contests.
Petry notched an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Lightning in Game 3. Petry set up Nick Suzuki's tally at 18:04 of the second period.

Petry produced an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights in Game 2. Petry has healed from a hand injury, but he's also battled an upper-body injury in the last week. It was noticeable, as the defenseman's eyes were red, which was later revealed to be a result of a bilateral subconjunctival hemorrhage, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports. That issue doesn't appear to affect Petry's vision or his performance, as he was able to log 20:47 of ice time in the win. He's picked up four points, 22 shots on net, 29 hits and 21 blocked shots through 11 playoff outings.
