Montreal Canadiens forward Brian Gionta will have surgery on his torn left biceps, knocking him out of the rest of the playoffs.

The Canadiens announced Wednesday that Gionta will undergo surgery Friday. The Montreal captain sat out Games 2 and 4 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Ottawa Senators with what was called an upper body injury. Ottawa leads the best-of-seven series, 3-1, with Game 5 on Thursday at Montreal.

• Canadiens center Lars Eller has resumed skating. He was taken from the ice on a stretcher in Game 1 with a concussion and facial injuries after a hit by Ottawa defenseman Eric Gryba, who was suspended two games.
