Tonight's lineup move

Here’s what Terry Murray said today about the status of both Randy Jones and Davis Drewiske. Jones has five goals and nine assists in 27 games this season but has been a healthy scratch in his last three games. Drewiske has struggled to make an impact since returning from a shoulder injury…

(on Jones…)
MURRAY: “Jones is going in. He’s been out a couple games. Some of the conversations we have had are just that he needs to be better. He knows he can be, and he was when he first got here. He was a very good player for us. The injury set him back, and he’s been working very hard in the practice, so it’s time to play a game before the break.”

(on Drewiske…)
MURRAY: “Physically, now, he’s fine. He’s ready to go. The other side of it, though, is always the most difficult with a player coming back from an injury like that. It’s the emotional part of it. He’s coming into pretty intense games, too, very meaningful games obviously, so everybody is playing hard and you’ve got to make sure that you’re going out and playing with a little bit of that recklessness, almost. I think there’s some hesitation that he’s got to come to grips with through the break.”
