After two pre-season games, you could argue that the lineup picture is even more muddled than it was a few days ago. So many players have stepped up in the two games that it has made separating from the pack impossible.
Max Domi and Artturi Lehkonen will be in the lineup, and will be joined by Brendan Gallagher given Jonathan Drouin went to New Brunswick. Shea Weber and Victor Mete also return to the lineup.
Nick Suzuki will be playing with Jordan Weal and Paul Byron in what is a line that could start the NHL season.
