Laich-Nylander-Clark

Bourque-Steckel-Fehr

Giroux-Gordon-Bradley

Schultz-Green

Alzner-Jurcina

Morrisonn-Collins

Johnson

Donald Brashear will miss a second straight game, but Bruce Boudreau didn’t think he would out much longer. Tyler Sloan was sent back to Hershey earlier this afternoon (maybe he will get in a game this time).

After only yielding five goals during a four-start stretch, Johnson has allowed seven in his past two games. He’s been dealing with a lingering hip injury, which might have had something to do with that.
