Found November 15, 2011 on HockeyBuzz:
I wasn't going to start a new entry, but it looks like I should. Nino Niederreiter is definitely IN, but Jack Capuano will not release the name of the one who sits until closer to game time. Evgeni Nabokov will be back in goal tonight. According to Art Staple, his only win this season was against the Rangers. We need another one tonight.
