Round 2 against the Checkers features some lines that are a bit mixed up. Bobo Carpenter took warmup but appears to be out. A few guys back in, a few out.
Could be Zack Stortini in for Charlotte, which can always be interesting. Edit: he’s out. Seven D again for the Checkers. The Checkers’ magic number to clinch the division is two points, so any win tonight does it.
Bridgeport’s magic numbers remain seven for the playoffs and 12 for home ice.
