Based on warmups, it looks like Alexander Semin and John Erskine are playing tonight. The way Semin was kicking the soccer ball around with his pals before would have made it very suspicious if he wasn’t in the lineup.

The lines were the same as this morning, with Tomas Fleischmann on the fourth line and Brooks Laich and Chris Clark both getting a bump up a line. Erskine was with Brian Pothier, so the pairs should be the same as they’ve been — with Erskine replacing Tyler Sloan just as Sloan had done.
