Scratches: Morden, Yadlowski, Barnett, Hayer, McPhee.
Notes: Everett plays one short tonight as defenseman Brennan Yadlowski serves the fifth game of his 10-game suspension, while forwards JT Barnett (knee), Manraj Hayer (concussion), Zach McPhee (head) and defenseman Evan Morden (ankle) are all out injured. Defenseman Nick Walters plays with a full face shield after taking a puck to the lip last weekend that required 23 stitches.
Scratches: De Leo, Castro, Trott, Wrenn.
Notes: Portland plays without its captain, defenseman William Wrenn, because of an upper-body injury. Also not in the lineup is winger Jason Trott, who initiated the fight that prompted Yadlowski into the actions that led to his suspension. Trott is a healthy scratch.
