  • Ryan Horvat and Jonny Brodzinski appear to be out tonight, as they've only practiced in red no-contact jerseys this week. Also, Brett Sutter appeared in practice for the first time this week today.

  • Anton Khudobin looks to be out tonight, as he did not practice at all this week. Matt Hackett gets the call and Ryan Faragher backs up. The very experienced Hackett once led the Houston Aeros to the 2011 Calder Cup Finals.
  • I'd expect Dallas Eakins to opt for a bigger lineup. Against the smaller, skilled Texas Stars, San Diego didn't dress Brian McGrattan for example. That will change.
  • Update: 6'4" Brian McGrattan and 6'4" Stu Bickel are skating in warmups.
