Joe Morrow mixed it up with teammate Andrew Shaw during Thursday's practice.

No punches were thrown in the altercation, but they did exchange hefty slashes and engaged in a shoving match. "There's nothing wrong with that," coach Claude Julien said. "It's players showing emotion. At the end of the day, there's a professional side to this game and there's a personal side. What happened on the ice was professional and they're going to be in the room and they'll probably be hugging and buying each other a Gatorade and they'll move on."

Joe Morrow may suit up in Game 2 against Ottawa on Saturday afternoon.

"We have options. Our first plan is Joe Morrow, who has been with us all year and played some games for us. It would allow us to balance our left and right sticks," interim coach Bruce Cassidy said. "After that, there's the health of the guys who are out (Torey Krug and Brandon Carlo), are they going to be any better for (tomorrow)? And then there are guys in Providence who've played well." Injuries to Krug, Carlo and Colin Miller have banged up Boston's defense corps, so Morrow could play in his first game since Jan. 22.
