Niinimaa scratched from lineup for Florida game

RDS and Canoë are reporting that Janne Niinimaa is a scratch for Thursday's game against the Florida Panthers. Mathieu Dandenault will make his return to the defensive corps after playing on the 4th line in Wednesday's return. Aaron Downey will join Steve Bégin and Tomas Plekanec on the 4th line tonight.

All I can say is IT IS ABOUT TIME!
