Barry Trotz wasn’t revealing his lineup again at the morning skate, but based on the previous day’s practice and his comments yesterday there is the possibility we’ll see a line remix tonight against the New Jersey Devils in Newark:

Michael Dal Colle taking Anthony Beauvillier’s spot on the Mathew Barzal line, while Beauvillier would take MDC’s spot next to the Dashing Valtteri Filppula and Leo Komarov.

Andrew Gross reports that’s how they did the pre-game line rushes too:

For the Devils, Cory Schneider is making his first start in almost two months as he returns from abdominal injury. The rest of the Devils are expected to line up like this (remember that Brian Boyle is now a Preadtor):

Marcus Johansson - Nico Hischier - Kyle Palmieri
Miles Wood - Travis Zajac - Blake Coleman
Jesper Bratt - Pavel Zacha - Drew Stafford
Brett Seney - Kevin Rooney - Kurtis Gabriel

Andy Greene - Damon Severson
Mirco Mueller - Will Butcher
Egor Yakovlev - Steven Santini
