Per Alex Prewitt, Tom Wilson has returned from the coach's doghouse and will return to his spot on the top line after a night off. Speaking of a night off, that's exactly what Jason Chimera will get, with Coach Trotz wanting to keep Andre Burakovsky in the lineup for now. And with Jack Hillen back alongside Mike Green, here's a look at the lines and defensive pairings for tonight's Metro Division battle:
Tom Wilson- -
Brooks Laich - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward
Michael Latta - Andre Burakovsky - Jay Beagle
That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Jason Chimera and Nate Schmidt out as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov, John Erskine and Aaron Volpatti still on the IR.
