Short Shifts

Notable lineup changes from around the NHL:

Alexander Semin is most likely starting tonight.  Laing returns from his jaw injury and could be back next week.  Also Jay Beagle has been reassigned to the AHL.  Caps Lines

Raffi Torres might miss tonight’s game as his wife is anticipating the birth of their first child.  Will update when we get more.  Jackets Lines

Craig Rivet will be a game time decision tonight vs. Montreal.  Sabres Lines

Jakub Kindl is making his NHL debut tonight which means Brian Rafalski will be out.  If Rafalski is out for an extended period, Kindl could be a good option as he’s playing on the top PP and will rotate into the top D-pairing.  Wings Lines

Nick Foligno will be a healthy scratch tonight.  It appears as if Ryan Shannon gets bumped up to the second line and Peter Regin will dress in his place.  Sens Lines

Rene Bourque is back on the top line for the Flames tonight.  Jamie Lundmark was reassigned yesterday.  No word on PP yet but I’m sure he’ll fit in somewhere.  Flames Lines
