Anderson has started the season strong with a .920 serve percentage and a 4-2 record in six games for the Sabers. He played in just six games for Washington all of last season, between the shortened regular season and the playoffs.
Tokarski stopped 33 of 37 shots in Seattle on Thursday night. He has a save percentage of .924 in four games this season.
Queue: Victor Olofsson misses a third consecutive game with a lower body injury and did not participate in the morning skate. Casey Mittelstadt also remains out of contention with a lower body injury sustained during the season-opening win over Montreal last month.
Olofsson is about to return, Granato said, but the Sabers want to be careful. Mittelstadt skated alone while the team was on the west coast. The next step for Mittelstadt is to return to training, but the Sabers are unsure when he will be allowed to do so.
With Murray on loan to Rochester ahead of the morning skate, the Sabers are expected to dress the same skaters as their 5-2 loss in Seattle on Thursday. Here’s a look at the morning skate lines and combinations:
The lines/pairs of Sabers on the morning skates are unchanged: Caggiula-Cozens-HinostrozaSkinner-Thompson-AsplundGirgensons-Eakin-OkposoBjork-Ruotsalainen-HaydenDahlin-ButcherBryson-MillerHagg-PysykWolaninkarski rotate in Dellies and Tolaninkarski.
