Kent Simpson, a night after his Bridgeport debut, gets his first Bridgeport start. Lukas Sutter also gets his AHL debut after coming up from Stockton. Colin McDonald took warmup in Detroit today but was sent down when Casey Cizikas was ready to play; he’s not back yet.
Sutter’s the only apparent switch from last night’s 20. The rushes indicated Chris Langkow comes out, but we’ll see. Portland has one to scratch, too, and it looked like Mark Louis. Edit: Actually, Louis is in; Jordan O’Donoghue is scratched. It is Langkow for Bridgeport.
