I wonder if lots of people are going to watch this game in Europe. I was worried that it was going to conflict with the Champions League matches which are also being played today, but seeing as the game starts at noon (18:00 in Switzerland), it might end just before the soccer starts.
[Markus Naslund Scott Gomez Chris Drury
Nigel Dawes Brandon Dubinsky Nikolai Zherdev
Fredrik Sjostrom Lauri Korpikoski Ryan Callahan
Patrick Rissmiller Blair Betts Colton Orr
Petr Prucha/Aaron Voros/Dan Fritsche]
If those were the lines last game, and Dawes, Naslund and Rissmiller aren't playing, does that plug Voros onto the 4th, Fritsche onto the 2nd and Prucha with Gomez and Drury on the 1st? If so, Prucha better produce because if he doesn't this board will crucify him.... moreso than they do already.
Is there honestly any chance in hell that this game will even be close? How much of a wave would it cause if Bern figured out a way to win? Also, are we sure the Rangers plan to ice that lineup? I was under the impression this game would be used to give the remaining kids another look...
Take nothing for granted. Look what happened in Mystery, Alaska.
