Precious little to report from today's morning skates, leading us to give thanks to the Boston Bruins; had the Habs met the Bruins in the Eastern final, today would have been another day off before Game 2.
The news from the Wachovia Center: Jacques Martin says he'll announce any lineup changes after tonight's warmup. And that would be a first, right?
But don't look for Ryan O'Byrne in the lineup, since he was skating long and hard after the main group had left the rink. Sergei Kostitsyn? A tête-à-tête with Martin, but he didn't look happy skating away.
ahhh ok. looks like we will see at game time. I was going by what I heard earlier in the afternoon on the show. I did find it odd that Sergei Kostitsyn name did come up as a possible addition given what we heard about him from the Habs organization from stuff written by Bob Mckenzie at TSN earlier this month.
Pitt doesn't have a defenseman like Pronger shadowing him. They showed on CSN Philly that Pronger was on the ice for like 90% of Cammalleri's shifts.
They should keep that going tonight. Worry about the MTL home ice matchups when we get there. Gomez was really ragged in Game 1. He'll be better tonight. Flyers have to stay out of the box. That's where Gomez-to-Cammalleri does damage, on the PP, even strength it's more Plekanics to Cammalleri.
