Kris Russell played forward on Sunday.
Russell is normally a defenseman but he was moved up front when Andy McDonald could not play due to the flu. "A little overwhelming, but it was all right," Russell who saw fourth line duty, said. "I was just trying to keep it simple, more worried about the defensive side of the puck. 'Revo' and 'Cracks' talked to me a lot, so that helped." Russell played with Ryan Reaves and Adam Cracknell Sunday and will likely return to the blueline in time for Tuesday's game.
