Eric Boulton, who scored a goal against the Blue Jackets will remain in the lineup and Jaroslav Halak will be in net. Michael Grabner and Tyler Kennedy will once again be healthy scratches. Isles' Coach Jack Capuano says that Boulton brings extra leadership to the bench.
"When you talk about our team he's a great leader," Capuano said. "He's an experienced guy, he plays the right way and for me the emotion on the bench. Especially this time of year is real important for some of our younger guys."
