What to Look For?
• Who's Healthy ... With a couple of players under the weather today, the projected roster is a little up in the air. How some guys feel this afternoon and early evening will determine the final roster.
• A Second Look ... Patric Hornqvist and Antti Pihlstrom, two rookie forwards under strong consideration for Opening Night roster spots, are both expected to make his second appearance on the preseason tonight.
• Success Story ... Mike Santorelli's play during the rookie games earned him a preseason game opportunity. His strong play in Thursday night's preseason game vs. Atlanta earned him a spot in tonight's projected lineup. Can he keep turning heads tonight?
