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. The 33-year-old Petry has struggled to produce offense in the postseason with six helpers and 34 shots on net through 18 outings. He's added 44 hits, 31 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating in a top-four role.
Petry provided an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 6.
Petry had the secondary helper on Cole Caufield's second-period tally. The 33-year-old Petry finished the Stanley Cup Semifinals with two helpers in five games after returning to the lineup in Game 2. He should be fine for a top-four role with power-play duties heading into the Cup Finals. He has five helpers, 24 shots on net, 37 hits and 31 blocked shots through 15 playoff outings overall.
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.
Petry (hand) will play in Wednesday's Game 2 versus the Golden Knights, contrary to a previous report.
Petry didn't take line rushes during warmup, but the final roster report has him in the lineup. Look for the 33-year-old to take on a second-pairing role for the Canadiens. Brett Kulak will exit the lineup to make room for Petry's return.
Petry (hand) did not participate in line rushes and will not play in Wednesday's Game 2 versus the Golden Knights, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Petry will miss his third straight game with the injury. His presence on the ice during warmups is a positive trend -- the veteran defenseman may be deemed a game-time call again prior to Friday's Game 3.
Petry (hand) is expected to be a game-time decision for Wednesday's Game 2 versus Vegas, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Petry has yet to be cleared for contact, but if he's able to fully participate in Wednesday's morning skate, he could be an option for Game 2 against the Golden Knights. The 33-year-old blueliner has missed two contests since suffering a hand injury in Game 3 against Winnipeg on June 6.
Petry (hand) practiced in a non-contact jersey Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Petry was able to join his teammates for morning skate, but he won't be an option for Monday's Game 1 since he's yet to be cleared for contact. Further updates on his status should surface prior to Wednesday's Game 2.
Petry (hand) skated Sunday, and coach Dominique Ducharme said Petry could resume practicing with the team as soon as Monday or Tuesday, John Lu of TSN Montreal reports.
Ducharme stopped short of ruling Petry out for Monday's series opener against the Golden Knights, though the veteran blueliner isn't expected to be available for that game. Petry seems to be progressing in his recovery and has a good chance of returning for Wednesday's Game 2 if he misses Game 1.
Petry (hand) isn't expected to be available for Game 1 of the Canadiens' third-round series, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
Although Petry isn't expected to be available for Game 1 versus the Golden Knights or the Avalanche in the third round, he is expected to be ready to return "early in the series." The 33-year-old blueliner has picked up three helpers through 10 contests this postseason.
Petry (upper body) should be available "early in the next round".
The Canadiens finished off the four-game sweep against Winnipeg on Monday despite Petry's absence.

Petry (upper body) will not be available for Game 4 against Winnipeg on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Petry suffered an injury in Game 3 on Sunday and won't be ready for the quick back-to-back Monday night. He'll be questionable ahead of Wednesday's Game 5 matchup if the Jets avoid elimination in Game 4. Alexander Romanov or Xavier Ouellet will likely replace the 33-year-old veteran Monday.
Petry (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Monday's Game 4 against the Jets.
Petry left Sunday's Game 3 early, and with no break in between games, he'll need to recover quickly to suit up for Game 4. With a 3-0 series lead, the Canadiens can afford to exercise a bit of caution with the all-situations blueliner, if necessary. Either Xavier Ouellet or Alexander Romanov would fill Petry's spot if the veteran ends up sitting out.
Petry (upper body) left Game 3 against Winnipeg on Sunday and will not return.
Petry appeared to get a finger caught in a camera hole in the glass but it's unclear if that's why he left the game. The 33-year-old blueliner recorded a plus-1 rating in 16:02 of ice time before exiting. He'll be questionable for Monday's Game 4 tilt.
Petry added two assists in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Jets in Game 1.

Petry recorded the first point by a Canadiens defenseman in the first-round series when he helped out on Tyler Toffoli's goal. It was still a net-negative performance from the 33-year-old Petry, as both of the Maple Leafs' goals deflected off of him before going in the net. The Michigan native has racked up a minus-3 rating, 22 hits, 12 blocked shots and 16 shots on goal through six contests, but his lack of offense is troubling after he posted 42 points in 55 regular-season outings.
Petry (undisclosed) will play Thursday's Game 1 against Toronto, Kevin McGran of The Toronto Star reports.
Petry sat out the last game of the regular season, likely for rest, and is good to go for the Canadiens' postseason opener. The 33-year-old had the best season of his career in 2020-21, putting up an impressive 42 points in 55 games while recording 22:44 of ice time. He'll assume his usual top-pairing and No. 1 power play duties.

With all four North Division playoff seeds set, the Canadiens are resting plenty of regulars in their season finale, so Petry is likely just being given some rest. There's no reason why the blueliner shouldn't be good to go for Game 1 against the Maple Leafs next week.
