Suomela would center the third line if Gambrell cannot play. ... There is no timetable for the return of Nieto following a setback in his recovery; the forward will miss his eighth straight game. ... Bjornfot will not play after the defenseman was injured when elbowed in the head by Vegas Golden Knights forward Chandler Stephenson in a 4-2 win Wednesday.
