This is a game that we should score a lot and win. Schultz is looking like he's getting a bit worn out. Still playing well but he's having a few more mental breakdowns than usual. I expected this to happen though as he's playing an insane amount of minutes in this AHL schedule. It's hard to stay fresh when your one of the only competent d-men available to play in any situation.
Hopefully we will see a few different players get on the scoresheet tonight. I won't be able to watch until the second as I have hockey practice at 7 as well but hopefully I will be able to catch half of it.
Hopefully some of the secondary guys have big games and get on the board with goals: Paajarvi, Pitlick, etc. Paajarvi could really use a 2 goal game or something to get some confidence going and Pitlick is still in search of his first goal so obviously he needs one in the worst way.

Martindale should be soon, haven't heard anything about House.
House would be a big boost on the PK.
On another note, Abney does absolutely nothing for us. He can't even fight that well in my opinion. Glad Rajala is back in the ECHL though. I really think that is the best move for his development, could be good for a couple other players too.
I honetly love AHL live. Reading about it before I bought it I was worried, and it didn't start off great but it's improved a bunch. With the updated quality in the steams I can stream the games on our projector here and the quality is still good.
Yeah I gotta hand it to AHL Live, it was absolutely atrocious for the pre season and the first few weeks. I'm talking like some 2002 era streaming ****. Now they have pausing and rewinding of live feeds and much better quality and such. No longer have any buyers remorse on springing the 150 for it.
How has everyone been liking Hartikainen? should become a decent depth guy in Edmonton, will only improve.
Harski has been terrific, IMO he had a less than stellar first couple of games of the year, but then got on the top line and hasn't looked back even since being dropped down a line. His playmaking has been greatly improved, his skating seems to be vastly improved, he has made significant strides this season. IMO he must've had a great offseason of training because another major knock on him (consistency) hasn't been an issue this year. He looks like an NHL player in the AHL, that's the best compliment that IMO you can give to a guy like him.
