Jackets announce lineup for Saturday
While one half of the team will be in action tonight at Nationwide, the other preps for a trip to help break in the CONSOL Energy Center out in Pittsburgh. Per Tom Reed of the Dispatch, here are your lines for Saturday's game:
F1: Nash - Brassard - Voracek
F2: Filatov - Johansen - Mayorov
F3: Gabriel - MacKenzie - Dorsett
F4: Calvert - Frischmon - Boll
D1: Hejda - Savard
D2: Moore - Guenin
D3: Tyutin - Ratchuk
Gotta admit, I really want to see what Filatov, Johansen, and Mayorov might do - and the Moore/Guenin pair honestly excites me. They've been two of the most mobile and offensive d-men in camp. If they click on the ice, they could really become a serious threat that Pittsburgh would be forced to defend against.
The team has also said the next wave of cuts will be Sunday, so this could be a serious "last chance" game for a few players to leave a positive impression on Arniel and Howson.
