Curtis McElhinney, whose last start was Nov. 29 at the Nashville Predators, will start and Anton Forsberg was called up from the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League. Bobrovsky did not attend the morning skate.
"We've got to do a good job in front of (McElhinney) as a group of five," Richards said. "He's going to have to make saves when we need him to make saves, but the five guys in front have to help him out. It means we have to be disciplined, not take penalties."
