Otto Koivula sits for the first time since Nov. 2, apparently healthy. Matt Lorito and John Stevens sit out, again to keep them from playing three-in-three. Ben Holmstrom is the veteran scratch. Scott Eansor, Ryan Bourque, Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier get back in. Some interesting line combinations with the scratches. Yannick Rathgeb for Chris Casto on defense, so once again everybody who didn’t play last night plays tonight.
Christopher Gibson is said to be OK after coming out after one period last night, but he’ll back up Jeremy Smith, who got the win in last night’s overtime victory at Providence.
Bridgeport hits the quarter pole after this one. Just 20 to go.
