nice to see Oreskovich back. he brings a real edge to that 4th line. mildly surprised it wasn't Hodgson called up though, if the 3rd line is going to be 'centerless' for any extended length of time. i guess they're still more confident in Higgins or someone else at centre, over Hodgson at this point, or couldn't fit it in cap-wise?
It's probably worth noting that when both Kesler and Manny were in the box for Calgary's (I think) two-man advantage the other day, it was Henrik who went out to take the faceoff (though Lapierre was out the next shift, I believe).
