Nick Boucher, Brad MacMillan and Konstantin Shafranov will be in the lineup Friday night, according to General Manager David Franke. Rick Varone and Brandon Warner they aren't so sure right now. Varone may be moved to 30-day IR. Danko Mironovic is also likely to be ready to play. The Komets won't announce any definitive roster moves until Friday. X-rays on Warner's angle were negative.
They are expecting Tim Haun to miss the games this weekend on suspension, but the league has not`announced anything yet. Parris Duffus will likely be the emergency back-up again. Because the Komets were playng short-handed on Sunday, they had a spot to activate Duffus. They released him today since emergency back-up goaltenders are on 72-hour contracts.
