Ryan Ellis' status for Predators in Game 6 of Final still unclear

Ryan Ellis' status for Predators in Game 6 of Final still unclear

Defenseman Ryan Ellis did not participate in the Nashville Predators' optional practice Saturday at Bridgestone Arena and his status is unclear for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports, SN).

Ellis left a 6-0, Game 5 loss Thursday with an undisclosed injury in the second period.

The Predators trail the best-of-7 series 3-2.

Ellis and partner Roman Josi have spent the majority of the Cup Final matched up against Sidney Crosby's line. Ellis is tied for third on the Predators with 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in 21 games.

"He's obviously a huge part of our defense," Josi said. "He's been unbelievable all season. He's been great in the playoffs. His hockey sense is really good. He makes the right plays, he always makes the right decision and he's a great leader on our team."

Defenseman Matt Irwin saw an increased role after Ellis left Game 5 and played in Nashville's top four when P.K. Subban, Roman Josi or Ellis were injured during the regular season. Anthony Bitetto or Brad Hunt could dress if Ellis cannot play.
