Morrow played in just his fifth game of the 2017-18 season on Sunday night and he logged 10:14 of ice time, but he made the most of his opportunities. Still, he has earned a mere 11 points in 70 career NHL appearances and shouldn't be on your fantasy radar. Nov 6 - 10:31 AM

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.
