Aleksander Barkov escaped major injury in a knee-to-knee collision and is being listed by the Florida Panthers as day-to-day, a relieved coach Paul Maurice said Sunday.

Barkov was hurt when he was hit by Anaheim's Jackson LaCombe on Friday night in the Panthers' 2-1 win. LaCombe initially was assessed a five-minute major after the play; the penalty was downgraded to a two-minute minor for tripping after review.
