After an embarrassing performance on Friday night against the Redwings, Claude Julien is hoping getting fresh legs in the lineup may result in a better showing in today’s rematch. Tyler Seguin will be back in the lineup and centering the third line. Good news though, this is the fourth and final game of Daniel Paille’s suspension, meaning the veteran winger will probably be back in the lineup while Seguin and Hamill can “learn” from the press box. Mark Stuart is playing in place of Steven Kampfer and is expected to skate on the third pairing. Kampfer, the rookie defenseman and an Ann Arbor Michigan native with over 50 family members and friends in attendance, will be a healthy scratch for the first time in his NHL career.
UPDATE: Zach Hamill was sent to Providence following the loss to Detroit.
