Bickell was replaced by defenseman Mike Kostka on the third line in the game.
Bickell has seven goals, two assists and a minus-seven rating in 39 games this season. He has been limited to less than 10 minutes of ice time in each of the last six games. He missed nearly a month because of a knee injury earlier in the season.
