5:40 PM — Connor Goggin and Alexandre Carrier scratched tonight…Paul Cianfrini in, and Marcel Alvarez is playing. The Goggin scratch is long overdue, just don’t think he earned it after last night. He didn’t stand out as having any particularly boneheaded plays. But it’s good to see Alvarez in there.
Cianfrini will wear #8…David Laliberte had that numbe on his helmet at the morning skates, but is now listed as #10.
Carrier didn’t really bring much to the table last night…he finished checks, but everyone’s supposed to do that. He had the one fight, but that arguably didn’t do too much. Good guy to have around, but he really needs to develop his skills more…there’s a reason he rarely plays, look at it that way.
Scott Wedgewood in net, opposed by Philipp Grubauer.
