Van Guilder had an even strength goal in the first and Watson had a PP goal
in the middle of the third to win the game, Milwaukee's 5th win in a row.

He is a little behind Beck. He scored on a deflection, but it was the GWG. He is starting to go to the goal more, skating around it and cycling less.

The second video is Watson's goal. Peoria tried to play defense first and tried to play physical hockey. They didn't have much luck knocking Watson down. Peoria trails the division by 5 points and is currently 13th in the conference. Milwaukee is now 8th.

Poile and Rutherford are both long-time NHL GMs. I wouldn't be surprised if Rutherford checked if Poile would re-claim if the Canes tried to "sneak" him to the farm.

Instead of playing 15 games for Milwaukee, who have been dressing 11 forwards recently, he can play 12 for Charlotte. BTW, 3 of those 12 are against Milwaukee! I hope Poile is getting something for pulling the rug out from under his own farm team. A team short on forwards and scoring who are in the 8th and final playoff spot as of last night's games.

Looking at Smith's stats in his 2 games with Milwaukee.

0 goals, 3 assists and a -1 rating. 3 points in 2 games, let's hope that continues and carries over when he comes back.

If you see tonight's game highlights, you might subtract a point from Smith. Chicago had practically no defense. There were open guys shooting from 10 to 15 on the Wolves goal. It looked like a warm-up session.

Whith Hornqvist coming back tonight and Muller and Beck playing well, Smith will be 4th line if brought back up or scratched.

The big question is who gets sent down or does Hannan go to IR to make room for Hornqvist?

Send Hannan to IR; with Gill back we have enough flexibility right now on the back end. You can't really send Mueller down with Goose out still, Beck is playing great, and Bartley is our 4th best defenseman right now and is meshing with Klein.

Does IR stand for Interior Rwanda?

Because I'm all for that.
