OK, here’s the deal with the lineup. Tom Poti was announced as a starter, so he stood out there for the opening faceoff, but went straight to the bench. Milan Jurcina was actually at “right wing” for the puck drop, then Poti went to the bench and was replaced by Eric Fehr.

Poti is still on the bench, but my guess is he isn’t leaving it to go on the ice the rest of the way.
