Zywicki was hurt in the opener and didn't play in Sunday's loss to Calgary. Zywicki took a hard knock during that game and was scratched from Sunday's contest. "We're not quite sure what's happing there yet," Coach Chris Hall said of Zywicki's injury. "... He's so key to our power play at times and our power play was pretty average tonight at best."
