Extras : Carr, De La Rose
The fourth line was Nicolas Deslauriers with Byron Froese and Logan Shaw which means that Daniel Carr and Jacob de la Rose remained as the extra bodies.
On defence, the rotation of Joe Morrow, David Schlemko, Jakub Jerabek and Jordie Benn stayed constant with Jerabek still the odd man out.
The pairing of Jeff Petry and Karl Alzner remained constant. Victor Mete also continued to take a regular rotation.
