Isn't it snowing pretty heavily in Denver? I'm doubting he'll be able to make it.
Yeah, the Denver Metro area was under a blizzard watch/warning yesterday. My family was telling me that it was supposed to snow until about 10am today and then stop. When I talked to them yesterday evening, they had about 1.5 feet of snow (SW Metro area). And the airport and roads leading back to the city during/after snowstorms are BRUTAL. No way he would make it to today's game.
Just a little lineup info from our end: Higgins in out sick with something, Booth is a GTD with a sore neck. Rumoured answer? Ballard might be up on the 3rd line as a forward along with Byron Bitz making his debut with the Canucks after a few weeks of conditioning in the AHL. Our 3rd line could end up as: Bitz-Malhotra-Ballard.
Goodness I hope so. I am so sick of my best friend's BF chirping me throughout the entire game about how much Stastny "sucks". And now that Duchene is not playing today, they will have nothing positive to say about the Avs (my Vancouver friends absolutely adore him).
The good part about Elliott being sent down and Barrie not playing is that Sacco will have to put EJ on the top PP unit..........right?
Or will Quincey play on the top unit and then take an idiotic penalty 10 secs later to take us off the PP? Or better yet, will O'Brien play on the top unit and try to dangle past all four Canuck penalty killers by himself?
So many possibilities with Sacco running the show........
Jiggy. Wish they would put Varly in for some more games.
He's already played a career high games in one season. Besides I'm thinking that Jiggy is going to get the next few games then they'll let Varly loose down the stretch. In other words, wait till the very last moment to play Varly then let him play till he collapses.
