Boll out, Modin still questionable

According to the Dispatch blog Jared Boll is out for tomorrow and did not accompany the team on the trip.

Fredrik Modin did, however, make the trip and is questionable.

The line used today at practice were:

Nash - Fedorov - Vyborny
Novotny - Brule - Zherdev
Chimera - Malhotra - Shelley
Glencross - Peca - Fritsche

If Modin is ruled back in the lineup then I'm sure he'll take his place between Nash and Vyborny. If not then it wouldn't surprise me in the least to see Shelley scratched and Hitch dress seven defensemen again.

I think regardless Glencross (pictured left) will get the nod tomorrow and he should fit in well with any line he's used on as he plays a simple straight line North American game.

It sounds like Boll will be fine and the organization is just being precocious with this kid. I'll tell ya what, he's certainly made an impact his first 3 games and I think his energy and enthusiasm is really gonna be missed come tomorrow night - the kid is infectious.
