I hope the team takes energy from the crowd. The Stars have been tailing off lately, but are definitely still dangerous.

A lot will depend on whether the Stars play Bachman or Raycroft in net. One is very good, the other, not so much.

Bachman is listed as the probable starter right now, but unconfirmed.

Does anyone know if the ceremony will be on CenterIce? I'm worried it's just going to pick up the game at 8

Probably not. From a friend:

Quote:
You do not get pregame or postgame coverage on Center Ice or NHL Game Center Live.

Right now, my program guide (FiOS) is showing CI will not start broadcasting the game until 8 pm, so it looks like the ceremony will not be shown.

I would think NHL Network will have a live look-in on the ceremony. They wouldn't miss the chance to fill some air time like that.

Also for the out of market DirecTV Center Ice subscribers, you can add the regional sports package for $10 a month and if you do, you can watch the pre-game and post-game shows on MSG stations. Try it for a month and cancel if you don't like it. That would let you watch the ceremony tonight.

Zajac centering Tedenby and Clarkson on third line in morning skate.

We have crazy depth, now to find the offense on a more consistent basis

I actually hadn't heard that Lindros story before. It makes me think of when I was a young lad and had an extreme hatred for Lindros (I have a longstanding tradition of hating athletes who won't go to the franchise that drafts them, including Bo Jackson and Eli Manning). Going to Philly didn't help matters, and I think he 'wrote' an autobiography at the age of 19 or something, which I also thought was absurd.

I also remember disliking Niedermayer quite a bit when he first came into the league. I was young and thought he took too many chances, and was not willing to forgive the mistakes he made because of youth. I think I literally despised him during the 1994 playoffs (objectively he may have played well, but not according to me at the time).

It's quite different from the way I am able to look at Larsson and forgive some of his more glaring errors. I suppose I have matured as a sports fan.

Anyhow, random personal digression aside, I hope it's a great night for Scott, and is certainly well-deserved.

This will be Sestito's first scratch since being called up November 23. He's played eleven games.

Boulton AND Janssen over Zharkov, Mills, or Stephen Gionta...or Chico even?
I will look forward to their 25 seconds of desperately trying to ice the puck.

If you ask me, Boulton and Carter have been playing decently well, and it opens up a half way decent line for Kovy to double shift with.

I don't mind Boulton. It was the double whammy I was shaking my head at. You make a good point about having a line that Kovy/Parise could double shift on. I hadn't thought of that.

Kovy specifically, IMHO, because Jansen as RW is the weak link... Allows for Kovy to jump on early with the third line and stay out there has forechecker 1 during the line change to the first line. Cool concept when you have the rarity of a guy like Kovy that thrives on the 25 minutes a night it takes to do that.

Janssen is only going to play 5 minutes anyways....so who cares? like its been said, it opens a spot up for our better forwards to be double shifted

Boulton has been fine

Those are the exact line I wanted to see with Zajac back.

No need to breakup the top 2 lines who have developed some good chemistry. It also allows Zajac to inch back in without getting top-line minutes. So happy to have our number 1 center back.

Hey guys.

Just want to pay my respects as a Ranger fan (and now relo panther fan) to Niedermayer . Class act, multiple cup winner, as close to a Bobby Orr type as we may see. An honor to have watched him play.

Enjoy the Ceremony it should be awesome.

Tailing off = winning 5 of our last 7 and having a 7-3-1 record in our last 11?

Good luck tonight.
