A rough night at the office against the Rangers on Monday is the final action Nikolay Goldobin got as he's been sent back to the Barracuda along with Bryan Lerg and Dylan DeMelo. Coming up in their place is Mirco Mueller, getting his first shot in the NHL this season, and Micheal Haley (leading scorer for the Barracuda).
Sending three players down and calling two up (and Mueller-DeMelo being a like-for-like swap) suggests Paul Martin might be good to go for tomorrow. We'll put that under the "cautiously optimistic" umbrella for now. I
Update: Never mind.
