Ericsson knee to be checked Tuesday
"We're hopeful," said Babcock. "We'll see what happens. It didn't look very good on TV."
Ericsson left the game after being checked by Shane Doan with five minutes left in the first period. The hit caused Ericsson's left knee to buckle backwards.
Also, Babcock said that he's "pretty sure" that Jimmy Howard will start in net again, Thursday night.
