Game Notes

The older thread with some pre-updates is here. Other further notes and lineups below:

Game preview from the official site; BST was 1-2-0-1 against WBS last season.

From the Post, here's the gameday primer as well as a feature on goalie coach Stephen Valiquette (with an interesting detail about Anders Nilsson wondering about gaps that weren't there).

The big change was inserting Mike Halmo for Brett Gallant. To that end, the Sound Tigers posted expected lines:

Niederreiter-Cizikas-McDonald
Ullstrom-Sundstrom-Persson
DeFazio-Nelson-Kabanov
Halmo-Watkins-Riley

Donovan-Hamonic
de Haan-Wishart
Ness-Landry

Kevin Poulin is expected to start in goal for the third consecutive game.

Update: Fornabaio's blog update is here, so look for that to be added to. Here is his Twitter feed. Here's the team's.
