Tonight’s Lines: Dunn, Blais return against Ducks

Dunn has a chance to fix his mistakes from last week’s loss to the Kings.

Vince Dunn, who is perhaps being shopped around right now, was a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Vegas Golden Knights. He had an atrocious game against the Los Angeles Kings last weekend, and deserved the time in the press box. Whether or not he was going to play against the Golden Knights on Thursday will remain one of life’s great unanswered mysteries, but he is in the lineup tonight:

It’s hard to fix mistakes when you’re not given the chance to, so hopefully tonight will be a learning opportunity for Dunn. He will be on the third defensive pairing with Niko Mikkola.

Sammy Blais will also return to the line-up tonight with the injury to Tyler Bozak keeping him out for the forseeable future. He’ll slot in on the third line with Robert Thomas and Mike Hoffman.

Here are tonight’s lines/pairings:


Sanford - O’Reilly - Perron

Schwartz - Schenn - Kyrou

Blais - Thomas - Hoffman

Clifford - Barbashev - Sundqvist


Scandella - Parayko

Krug - Faulk

Dunn - Mikkola
