Wakiji,

Blashill did not elaborate on any possible lineup changes for tonight but did say that Fabbri is available to play.

Mike Morreale tweet,

Red Wings forward Brendan Perlini needed 16 stitches on the outside of his nose; 7 more inside, to sew a laceration he sustained in 1st period against Sabres on Tues. No timetable for his return; Robby Fabbri expected to return to lineup vs. #NJDevils tonight.

Good to see Fabbri is back and Perlini is at least ok.
Seems like a lot of skate blade injuries this season.
Scary.

Also looks like maybe a bit of a promotion for Lindstrom.
Overall, among the prospect pool, he’s been a bright spot
and a pleasant surprise to have improved so much over his first season in NA.

I agree lefty skate injuries do see to be up, also I think Mike Modano’s career ended with a skate blade to the tendons of his wrist or hand. Feel the same way about Lindstrom, the kid looks good.

Is Blash really relegating the hard working all star Bertuzzi to the third line? Didn’t the BLM line have some chemistry early in the year? Please don’t say it’s to “get AA and Glen going”...  rolleyes

Please don’t say it’s to “get AA and Glen going”... 

How about,
“Get AA and Glenny’s trade value up a bit.”

Looking at these lines i would say blash is trolling at this point.

You did see this lineup was via Dana Wakiji tweet, not Blashill’s coaching board. Who’s to say which line is 2nd or 3rd? 

How about,
“Get AA and Glenny’s trade value up a bit.”

Posted by TreKronor on 02/13/20 at 03:19 PM ET

Possibly Helm’s as well.
