Lee Stempniak won't play on Wednesday, as coach Alain Vigneault doesn't want to change up his lineup.

He missed last Wednesday's game because of tightness in his lower back and he was healthy enough to play on Sunday, but was kept out. "I talked to Stemp about it," Vigneault said. "Like our team he had been a little bit inconsistent in some games. He was no different. What happened was he got hurt. Usually you don't lose your spot because of an injury but we had been waiting for such a long time, we got two good performances in a row and for now he's the odd man out and I'm sure when he's going to get a chance to play he'll be fine."
