Eric Fehr is expected to be back in the lineup on Wednesday.

He has been scratched for the last three straight games. "He's a versatile guy, he can play center, he can play the wing, can kill penalties, he can play in a checking capacity," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He's done that for us all year long this year and last year as well. So we have full confidence he'll step in our lineup and fill the role that we need him to play to help us win." He is projected to center the fourth line because of Matt Cullen's foot injury.

Eric Fehr might shift from the wing to center while Sidney Crosby is recovering from a concussion.

Fehr spent time serving in both roles at varying points during the 2015-16 campaign. "I'm not going to lie. It's nice when you can get a bit of a comfort level with a position you're at," Fehr said. "But in this game, it's not always easy to do that with injuries and whatever else comes into play. Whatever I'm going to be, I'll be prepared for it. But, hopefully, at some point we can find a bit of a comfort level and just roll with it." He had eight goals and 14 points in 55 games last season.
