What to Watch
1. Reinhart on the top line.
After a few games on the fourth line and lows in ice time. Sam Reinhart will be skating with Jack Eichel on the first line tonight. We’ll see if this sparks the 22-year-old forward as he’s played some of his best hockey on Eichel’s wing.
2. Defense Shuffle.
Josh Gorges will make is way back into the lineup tonight. It looks like Victor Antipin and Justin Falk will be the odd men out.
