Peca was replaced on the fourth line by Tomas Plekanec at Friday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Peca started the first three games but it looks like he might take a seat Saturday night against the Penguins. In Plekanec, coach Claude Julien has a good faceoff man who can help improve the team's winning percentage (38 percent) on draws. Peca went 1 of 6 in Thursday's loss and is just 33.3 percent in the dot for the season.
