Fran Sypek speculates that with Brady Greco being sent down to Johnstown of the ECHL that defenseman Todd Rohloff is likely close to returning to the lineup for the Falcons. ff was injured in Springfield's season opener when a hit from behind led to an awkward legs first spill into the end boards. Greco will be a welcome addition to a Johnstown club that is in need of a competent puckmoving defenseman.
Evgeny Artyukhin  and Nick Tarnasky  are slated to be recalled tomorrow for the Lightning's game against the New Jersey Devils. They could be joined in the lineup by defenseman Paul Ranger  who returned to practice Monday after suffering a hairline jaw fracture and a concussion at the point of Eric Boulton's elbow in Atlanta.
