Semin's back in the line-up according to Tarik El Bashir.
"It also looks like Alexander Semin will return from a six-game absence because of a back injury. He skated this morning and apparently feels good enough to give it a shot. Coach Bruce Boudreau said he's going to take the pre-game warmup before deciding for sure. Just in case, Boudreau told Alexandre Giroux to come off the ice. He was just about to start skating hard, the way scratches do on game days."
