1. Derek Joslin will be playing the wing position on the fourth line. Joslin, who has been a healthy scratch for the last five games is being given a chance to get some ice time at the wing position on the fourth line due to Tuomo Ruutu's and Chad LaRose's injury. Also of note Joslin is getting the chance to play against the team that originally drafted him tonight. Expect a good game from Derek tonight.
2. Justin Peters will get his first NHL start in the net since January 7th as Muller is holding Cam Ward out due to a slight injury concern.
3. Jerome Samson and Drayson Bowman should get the nod tonight due to injuries unless Chad LaRose feels like he can play tonight. In that case one of Samson or Bowman will be a healthy scratch.
