Lightning re-call Steve Downie
The Lightning Thursday morning re-called Steve Downie from AHL Norfolk and re-assigned defenseman Vladimir Mihalik to the Admirals. Downie has nine goals and 32 points combined in the minors this season for Norfolk and Philadelphia's farm team and was named an AHL All-Star. He played eight games with the Lightning earlier this season and had a goal.
This should be the start of a strong finish for the month of January. FlyGuys next 6 opponents are out of playoff position. Just need to take care of business and play our game, not down to there level. We get Giroux back tonight and Briere back this week. The lineup already looks remarkably better with the top two lines intact and Giroux on the third. Three lines that can score Can't wait for Briere to see what we look like then, should be fun. I am really pumped we are so close to having a full lineup for the first time all year.
Let's Go Flyers!!
Other teams are going to surely move this price up--many of them...I have heard at least half of the NHL is in on this...However, when push comes to shove everyone I talk to seems to feel that there are seven other serious players here...the Rangers, the Canucks, the Bruins, the Leafs, the Flyers, the Kings, and the Flames...
