Martin Gerber apparently has a pulled leg muscle. Hartsburg didn't know if Gerber would be able to backup Alex Auld tonight. Hartsburg did add that Alex Auld would have started regardless.
"I like (Auld's) poise in the net," Hartsburg said. "Right now, we're not playing very well defensively in front of him, but he doesn't seem to be rattled by it at all. He's giving us a chance."
