\ Second, Chris Clark did not make the trip to St. Louis, but the team may try to fly him up to Toronto for Monday’s game. He does not have a concussion; he just has a lot of stitches in his left ear. Tomas Fleischmann will take his place in the active lineup, but not on the top line (more on that in a second).\

\ Third, Tom Poti ruled himself out for tonight’s game. After a short skate, he said his groin doesn’t feel good enough to go, but still hopes to play Monday against the Leafs.\

\ Finally, here are the lines for this evening. There are a few surprises.\

\ Ovechkin-Backstrom-Kozlov\ Fleischmann-Nylander-Semin\ Pettinger-Gordon-Laich\ Brashear-Steckel-Bradley\ Morrisonn-Jurcina\ Pothier-Schultz\ Green-Erskine\

\ Brent Johnson will be in net against his former team.\
