David Krejci is out of the lineup. He remains day-to-day with a core injury. He will be replaced on the top line by Tyler Seguin. Forward Jordan Caron will return to the lineup after two games as a healthy scratch.

Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
