Here's the 20-man traveling crew for tonight's preseason finale at the Isles' AHL home:
Matt Moulson-John Tavares-PA Parenteau
Kyle Okposo-Frans Nielsen-Michael Grabner
Blake Comeau-Marty Reasoner-Micheal Haley
Jay Pandolfo-Casey Cizikas-Josh Bailey
Mark Streit-Mike Mottau
Andrew MacDonald-Travis Hamonic
Mark Eaton-Dylan Reese
Parenteau gets his first chance back on the top line, with Nino Niederreiter (groin) out. Comeau and Bailey get another shot to cement their roles, though Bailey is going on the wing to give Cizikas his first shot at game action -- Cizikas has simply been lost in the crowd down the middle, so he'll at least get a quick look before he makes Bridgeport his home to start the season.
MacDonald makes his preseason debut as well, back on the left side with Hamonic. Eaton has had his struggles in his game work so far, and with the signing of Steve Staios, Eaton is trying to make sure he stays in the lineup when the team has seven healthy D.
Nabokov and Montoya seem to be vying for the regular backup role -- the feeling here is that it belongs to Nabokov unless Montoya can really seize it, but Nabokov may get the bulk of tonight's time.
