Game Notes

  • No idea if Sutter stays with the same lines from the Calgary game. Jordan Nolan's presence on the second line didn't seem to mesh and despite the victory I'd be a bit surprised to see him back on that unit.
  • My gut feel is that we see Brown moved back to LW on on the 2nd line.That again would leave the 3rd line barren from a depth scoring perspective.
  • As Canes Country noted in their preview, Alexander Semin left Thursday's game with an apparent lower-body injury and is likely out today. With the Canes out of Semin, they'll insert rookie Elias Lindholm on the first line. For background on Lindholm, check-out Shutdown Line's Top 25 under 25 profile of him.
