Winnipeg Free Press: Copp ‘not feeling great’ after weekend return from concussion, Lemieux draws in. (Paywall).  Brendan Lemieux is getting a big chance as he gets back into the starting lineup.  Considering that Copp’s situation is unknown it will be interesting to see if Lemieux can make a case to stick around.  Have to think that it is between Lemieux and Appleton when the time for being reassigned occurs.

Illegal Curve: Coach Maurice pre-game. Topics included – Update on Andrew Copp?  Was it a reoccurrence of the concussion or a flu?  What does the 3rd period vs the Rangers do for the team in the midst of a road trip?  Are there any other lineup changes?  Status of Kulikov?  What are his thoughts on Seattle joining the league?  What stands out about Patrik Laine’s shot?  Does Laine ever take you out of coach mode and into a fan mode?  Was his goaltending decision made on the plane or was it adjusted on the road trip?  How has Myers handled the extra minutes?  How much does the scheme play a role or it is largely a result of talent on the power play?  Does he see a reason why across the NHL power plays are more effective?  How will he insert Lemieux into the lineup?
