There are lineup changes for today’s game, though surprisingly not in goal for either team. Connor Hellebuyck and James Reimer return to their respective creases, and Nic Petan makes his season debut!

Joe Morrow also slides in for Dmitry Kulikov, while Tucker Poolman enjoys his European vacation and Jack Roslovic falls out of the lineup. I’ve already said it on this site, the press box is not where players develop. Roslovic should be sent down to the Manitoba Moose if he’s not going to be playing.
