Zach Bogosian will skate alongside Rasmus Ristolainen again on Monday.
The duo was put together on Saturday versus Washington and they combined for three assists and a plus-4 rating. "I thought there was going to be an adjustment period with Zach just being on his off side, dealing with execution, dealing with working with his partner," said coach Dan Bylsma. "It actually looked like it was real comfortable. He was real comfortable and they were real comfortable working together and him being able to execute and break out, support each other."
