Quickly becoming one of the best sources for inside info on the web, Erik Erlendssonâ€™s blog on the Tribuneâ€™s site states that Marek Kvapil, Matt Smaby, and Blair Jones will make their 2006 NHL exhibition debuts Wednesday night against Washington. Kvapil, who is positioning himself nicely for a spot on a scoring line should an injury occur, will get Ruslan Fedotenko's spot alongside Vaclav Prospal and Vincent Lecavalier. The lineup for Wednesday: Vinny Prospal-Vinny Lecavalier-Marek Kvapil Ryan Craig-Andreas Karlsson-Nikita Alexeev Norm Milley-Eric Perrin-Rob DiMaio Mitch Fritz-Blair Jones-Eric Healey Filip Kuba-Dan Boyle Doug Janik-Andy Delmore Matt Smaby-Nolan Pratt Marc Denis will get the start in goal and is scheduled to play the entire game. Johan Holmqvist is scheduled to start Fridayâ€™s game in Detroit.
