Will get to see my two favorite teams squaring off.
And I'll get to see Carolina again the next night on ESPN2. Can't wait.
Do you guys think the lines will stay as they were in the game against New York? I'm hoping not. I'd also like to see Svoboda back in the lineup.
Do you think there is any chance of Staal getting sent back to juniors?
Rutherford pretty much cam out and said no on Staal going back to Juniors this afternoon ... of course he can change his mind later, but as for now the kid's staying.
As for Pens/Canes ... no matter the circumstances these two generally put on an entertaining show. Maybe its Francis and Lemeiux being such close friends ... but there's generally some up and down action and plenty of scoring and a high spirited game. You should enjoy methinks.
