Stephenson was a late scratch prior to Game 2 and Knights head coach Peter DeBoer told reporters Thursday he was day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
He recorded one assist in 17:26 of ice time in the Golden Knights' victory in Game 1 of the series.
The 27-year-old had 14 goals and 21 assists for 35 points in 51 regular season games for Vegas this year, his second in Sin City after coming over in a trade with the Washington Capitals in December of 2019.
Game 3 will go from the Bell Centre in Montreal Friday night with the Habs and Golden Knights even at one game apiece.
