Notable lineup changes from around the NHL:

Brian Rafalski is questionable tonight with the flu.  Wings Lines

Ray Whitney and Niclas Wallin will play tonight for the Canes.  No lines announced.  Canes Lines

Paul Mara will sit tonight for the Habs.  Expect Bergeron to return to D.  Habs Lines

Martin Havlat is also questionable tonight with the flu.  Wild Lines

I hope you didn’t pick up Robert Nilsson because he only lasted one game on the first line, and has been demoted to the 4th.  Ryan Potulny now centers Dustin Penner and Gilbert Brule on the first line. Oilers Lines

Matt Niskanen will play for the Stars tonight.  No word on which D-man sits.  Stars Lines

Eric Brewer returns for the Blues.  Darryl Sydor likely to sit.  Blues Lines

Kristian Huselius is questionable for tonight’s tilt, again with the flu.  Jackets Lines
