Cayden Primeau, who came off the bench in Game 2 and made 37 saves as the
Rocket posted a 3-2 win in Syracuse, is expected to start for the Rocket, while the Crunch is awaiting word on whether starter Max Lagacé will be able to play.
Lagacé left Game 4 at Place Bell Saturday after he suffered a lower-body injury and was replaced by Swedish rookie Hugo Alnefelt. Lagacé is listed as day-to-day, but head coach
Benoit Groulx has confidence in the 20-year-old Alnefelt after he made 24 saves to complete a 3-0 win that tied the series.
Groulx noted that Alnefelt was placed in a difficult situation because he entered the game at the start of a Laval power play. The Rocket was credited with only one shot on goal, although they did manage to hit two posts.
