Brock Nelson’s arrival produces some interesting units, breaking up Anders Lee and Ryan Strome for the first time in a long time, putting Nelson on the wing with Strome and some other rearrangements throughout the top three lines. Alan Quine gets scratched for Nelson.
A new letter for Johan Sundstrom in Chris Bruton’s injury absence. One to scratch each way. Looked like Cantin and Blood.

Nathan Lawson is not starting for just the second time; he came in midgame that first time. Good to see him and Steve Stirling pregame.
Tip of cap to Marty Biron, onetime Sound-Tiger-on-conditioning as a small part of a long career, after he announced his retirement today. From all accounts one of the game’s gentlemen, and he was certainly great for the short time he was here.
