Sorry for the tardiness of getting this posted today; meetings have kept me away from the computer.
Good news for the Andre Roy fans tonight – he’ll be back in the lineup tonight after sitting out the past three games. Andre was back to his familiar loud self in the locker room this morning, which usually means he’s pumped about getting on the ice. Michel Ouellet looks like he’ll be getting the night off. On defense, Brad Lukowich didn’t participate in the optional skate this morning and is listed as day to day with a lower body injury. John Tortorella said Lukowich won’t play tonight, so Doug Janik will get back in the lineup for the first time since Dan Boyle returned from injury.
In goal, Karri Ramo gets the start. It’s starting to look more and more like Ramo is the team’s “home” goaltender, while Johan Holmqvist is the go-to guy on the road.
