Scratches: Walters, Barnett, Grayson, Samoridny.
Notes: Everett welcomes overage defenseman Brennan Yadlowski back to the lineup. Yadlowski missed Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Victoria attending to a personal matter. Defenseman Nick Walters (lower body) and winger JT Barnett (knee) remain out injured. Austin Lotz gives Kent Simpson a breather in goal, making his first start since Feb. 24.
Scratches: Eviston, Castro, Bartschi, Viveiros, Petan/Turgeon.
Notes: The big news for Portland is that star winger Sven Bartschi is out. Bartschi was an emergency call-up by the NHL's Calgary Flames because of injury problems. If 1996-born center Dominic Turgeon gets the call after the warm-up, it will be his WHL debut.
