It was nice to see Mitch Jones back on the ice for Plymouth this afternoon. When he was injured, I didn't think there was any way he'd be back this season. If MacDonald's injury is indeed minor, this gives us 7 healthy defensemen for the start of the playoffs. The Whalers have not been in that situation since early January.

Ned got the start and could have sued for lack of support on a few of the Saginaw goals. Hopefully Vellucci will get the defense tightened up for the playoffs -- that was our undoing last postseason. Plymouth's offense looked sharp, though. The Spirit let our forwards waltz in numerous times. I felt sorry for their rookie goalie (who looked promising) at times.

Wilson and Rakell were also scratches. I would expect to see more of the regulars sitting out during the last three games. Trocheck may be the one exception, as he is still battling for the scoring title.
