Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) is expected to be a game-time decision on Friday.
Ericsson skated on his own before Thursday's practice. "I felt better than I thought I would," Ericsson said. "There's a chance (I'll play). You see the (defensemen) dropping like flies and you want to go out there and help. But it might not be helping if you go out and the injury gets worse and you're out another two, three weeks."
