Mark Borowiecki (lower body) is regarded as day-to-day, per Senators coach Guy Boucher.

Of course, teams don't tend to share much injury information, including timetables, during the playoffs, so a player who is day-to-day could turn out to be more significant injury. The day-to-day projection does mesh with an earlier report that Borowiecki might not be seriously injured though. He left Game 2 on Saturday due to the issue.

With his 17 penalty minutes Saturday night against the Blue Jackets, Mark Borowiecki now leads the NHL with 122.

He passed Antoine Roussel, who will miss the next 6-8 weeks with an injury. The advantage of rostering Borowiecki in pools that value PIMs is that he is a defenseman, so the point differential between him and an average defenseman may not be as great as one between an enforcer forward and the average forward.
Mar 5 - 10:16 AM

Mark Borowiecki will tag in for Fredrik Claesson against Tampa Bay on Thursday.

Through 40 games thus far the rugged defender has a pair of points along with 52 blocks, 69 PIMs and 197 hits. Claesson meanwhile has posted just four points with 15 hits in 14 games.
