The Jackets shuffle the deck on defense yet again, as Nikita Nikitin should be back in. John Moore is also coming off of IR, and so Cody Goloubef is back to Springfield. Sean Collins, however, is up on emergency recall, since Derek MacKenzie is out, still nursing some nagging injuries and R.J. Umberger is a game-time decision due to the same. If Umby can't go, Collins should get in.
Sergei Bobrovsky and Mike Smith are in the nets.
