Krys Barch, a native of Hamilton, will stay in the lineup for his fourth straight game, while Brandon Segal will sit out for his second straight. Jeff Woywitka also will be a healthy scratch.
Coach Marc Crawford said that while all of the line juggling was good for the last game, he will likely go back to the same lines he started with against Colorado. He said he really likes Loui Eriksson and James Neal with Brad Richards and that he will roll from there.
He said that Jamie Benn still is a candidate to play wing or center, and that's the only real issue right now.
If I'm guessing, I think we'll see:
James Neal-Brad Richards-Loui Eriksson
Brenden Morrow-Mike Ribeiro-Jamie Benn
Krys Barch-Steve Ott-Adam Burish
Brian-Sutherby-Tom Wandell-Toby Petersen
Nicklas Grossman-Stephane Robidas
Mark Fistric-Trevor Daley
Karlis Skrastins-Matt Niskanen
The other option is moving Benn to center on the third line, meaning:
I'm guessing against that.
