Coach Eakins was asked if Keith Aulie might get into the lineup tomorrow against the Bruins and he confirmed that was the case, with Martin Marincin drawing out.
"Marty won't play tomorrow," he said. "Keith's going in. We're looking for some grit, and not just out of Keith. It's got to come from everybody on our team -- but especially our back-end.
"There's going to be some real competition going on for icetime, especially with Oscar coming in and playing the way he did."
