Veteran defenseman appears to be healthy scratch tonight as 2 familiar faces are back!

After lots of video watching and team meetings, it was time for head coach Claude Julien to shake up his lineup a little more. Everybody knows Julien's job is still in jeopardy as the "press conference" wasn't a vote of confidence from the ownership and the management. That being said, this morning he tried "to fix things" as he mentioned to the media on Saturday. Kevan Miller and Colin Miller are cleared to play tonight and the odds are high that they'll be playing against the Detroit Red Wings.

Another interesting move by Julien :  Everything is pointing in the direction that he might let the veteran defenseman John-Michael Liles in the stand to make some room for either one of the two Millers. It's not too surprising judging by the fact Liles only has 5 assists in 29 games this year.
