Michael Dal Colle, Ross Johnston and Tanner Fritz are back from the Big Club tonight, producing an array up front that looks kind of familiar despite that the lineup had been so i-clap-dentical the past few games. Josh Holmstrom, Kyle Schempp and (apparently) Kellen Jones sit in their places. Mike Cornell also gets a go tonight in Patrick Cullity’s place.
Aaron Ness returns again in chocolate and white, wearing an ‘A’ along with an American Olympian. So, yeah, Battle of the Bourques III.
