Craig Anderson will get the start in goal, with Alex Auld serving as backup.

Jesse Winchester will be returning to the lineup for his first game of the regular season, after coming off a shoulder injury sustained at the beginning of training camp. Zenon Konopka and Brian Lee are the healthy scratches.

Despite coming off a 4-3 shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night, Ondrej Pavelec will get the start, with Chris Mason backing him up.

Jim Slater is battling the flu, so if he doesn't go tonight, Tim Stapleton will pick up his minutes.
Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
