Couple things: I forgot this morning that Sid was playing again and we were completely healthy. Not used to that at all. When I remembered at about 12:58PM I became instantly more excited about our afternoon game in Newark.
Other thing: The thing that makes Sid the best player we've seen since Lemieux retired is that he gets up for away games like no one else. Watch when he scores tomorrow (and he will) how he reacts. He loves playing on the road. That's how you know you're employing a special player. Guy is at his best when he's faced with a formidable challenge - be it the playoffs, a rowdy away atmosphere, or both.
Hey guys, what happened to Brent Johnson? He's been out for awhile. Do you guys think he's done for the year? I'm assuming he won't be re-signed...
All that has been said is that he is out with an undisclosed injury & is rehabbing it but he did suck really bad right after Bylsma said he needed more games from him. So you can infer what you want from that.
