Martinez/Harrold update

Terry Murray said he had not yet decided whether to replace rookie Alec Martinez with Peter Harrold in tomorrow night’s game. Harrold practiced at right wing today because of Wayne Simmonds’ absence. Murray also insinuated, after a later question, that he would consider changing up all of the defensive pairings to better suit specific matchups against the Sharks. If nothing else a Harrold-for-Martinez swap seems likely.

MURRAY: `I was going to use Peter on the blue line today in practice, but he’s that utility guy that’s great to have. We’re still considering that, making a change on the back end. We talked yesterday and we’ll talk again today and think about it and make a decision by tomorrow’s skate in the morning.”
