Game Notes

- P.J. Axelsson skated during the morning practice and will play tonight. He will skate on the top line.
- Marco Sturm is a game time decision with a lower body injury. He left last game early with the same injury.
- Tim Thomas will get the start once again in goal.
- Andrew Alberts, who got hit with a highstick against Montreal on Saturday, will be able to play tonight.
- With Axelsson going tonight, look for a roster move to happen if not today then tomorrow. The move all depends on the status of Sturm, and his availability to play tonight. Hoggan or Stastny are the most likely to be sent down to Providence. Although Mark Mowers, has had his ice time decreased recently in favor of Hoggan, could be an option as well, but not likely until Phil Kessel returns.
Projected Lineup:


If Sturm is unavailable Tenkrat will skate on Bergeron's line. I would like to see Tenkrat remain on the top line with Axelsson sliding into the 3rd line checking role with Primeau and Donovan. The fourth line, for the 3rd straight game will be subbed in with the top 3 lines. They will probably not get a shift together, thus no need for a center. If they do skate together it will be a combo of Tenkrat-Mowers-Chistov, with Hoggan skating with Primeau's line. Stastny is expected to be a healthy scratch.
