Being a Swedish goalie fan, I hope Enroth does really well. he's been much better, seen from training camp it looks like. But he's still a bit young, time to develop still. The physicality has been great. It's what we needed, maybe a jumpstart. Also living in NYC while Scott was on the Rangers, he is a force to be reckoned with even if he loses. The huge body and big punches thrown can **** any dude up. Same with his hits.

NHL 2K8 had a great option where you could change the announcers to a dynamic orchestral score that changed depending on the situation in the game (triumphant music with a big lead, tense music when down 1 late in the game in the 3rd, etc).

It was really well executed and way, way better than listening to the same recorded lines over and over again from announcers I don't even particularly like live. A friend and I try to recreate it sometimes in NHL12 when we play our season with movie soundtracks, but it's not quite the same.

Ive seen him fight for other teams, it will just be a joy to watch him some ass today. Although I really hope he saves it all for Boston. That should be an entertaining game to watch. I like Enroth, but from what I saw with Miller in the last game, it looks like he's on fire. I thought for sure Toronto would score on that long 5 on 3. Cant say they shot much, but they had quite a few good opportunities and Miller was like a brick wall. As long as our defense stands strong tonight, I think we'll win this. Carolina is hungry for a win, so I think they will come out strong, and hopefully our big boys will control that quick.

Nathan Gerbe (back) has been cleared for action and will make his season debut tonight, while Ville Leino (LBI) and
Cody McCormick (finger) still remain sidelined with injuries. TJ Brennan, Matt Ellis and Mike Weber are the healthy
scratches, while Jhonas Enroth will get his first start in goal.

Leino to IR, Gerbe back. Assignment move still put off for a few more days at least.

Matt Ellis seems the logical option and the lines would be
-Gerbe- Grigs - Ott-
-Scott- Hecht - Kaleta-

Thanks Chain!

Unfortunately I will not be going to this game in light of hard to find a babysitter for twins and a 9 year old at last second add that in the the 3 hour drive from the homestead.. Guess I will just have to plan a mini vacation to Buffalo one of these weekends. Will wait until its warm though....

Totally forgot about that. It was one of the more original and well-executed little things I've seen in a sports game. My friends and I always chose that option.

Agreed. Gerbe skated with Grigs and Ott which obviously puts Hecht back on the 4th line. Either Ellis or Scott would come out for him, with Ellis being more likely imo.

Edit: Didn't notice Chain confirmed that it is Ellis, as expected

Yeah Miller was great. Hopefully we can flatten their moxy right out of the gate, maybe get up 1, 2-0, deflate Carolina. They are scary though with the two Staals, but we can still get them if we put on the heat.

I just saw that Carolina is outshooting opponents 39.0 - 25.5 this year. Enroth will have to be on his game tonight

Do we have confirmation that the puck will actually drop at or around 7:00pm? Or is it "Obscure thing nobody else even cares about outside of Raleigh" Night that will delay it by twenty minutes or so?

I think Foligno-Ennis-Stafford gets going tonight. 2 goals from that line.

You can actually hear the smack of the punch landing when Scott lands that last right hander, around the 34/35 second mark.

OUCH.
