San Jose Sharks leading goal-scorer Jonathan Cheechoo underwent an MRI on Thursday and is listed as day-to-day with a knee sprain.
Cheechoo, who was not using crutches but was heavily wrapped, is listed as ‘‘extremely doubtful’’ for Game 2 but a final determination on that won’t be made until Friday.

San Jose coach Ron Wilson had no problems sharing his anger.
‘‘But the league apparently has addressed it, and we’ll just go forward. Cheechoo, I don’t know when he’ll play. Hopefully he’ll be able to come back this playoff. I don’t know right now,’’ Wilson said.
Asked if that meant Cheechoo wouldn’t return in this best-of-seven series or this postseason, Wilson said he did not know. Game 2 is Friday night in Nashville.
Predators coach Barry Trotz studied eight different angles of the collision near the Nashville blue line nine minutes into the second period. Hartnell was ejected and given a five-minute major for kneeing.
‘‘The more I look at it, the more I realize it’s probably not even a penalty. He went to hit him, Cheechoo tried to get out of the way. Unfortunately, they locked knees, and Cheechoo got the worst of it. In terms of the elbow in the face, which I think was claimed, he hit his mouth on the ice,’’ Trotz said.
