Lineup News & Notes
Mark Barberio, Pierre-Cedric Labrie (UBI), Anders Lindback (IR; ankle) and Maatias Ohlund (IR; knee) were
scratched in yesterday's 6-5 OTL to Washington. Nate Thompson received stitches after his visor shattered
last night and will sit out tonight's game as a precautionary measure. Mathieu Garon will get the start in goal.
Quick question re: visors. Aren't they sanctioned by some governing body to not shatter? I know certain ones aren't sanctioned for collegiate play (Oakley if I remember)
He was wearing a bauer visor from the twitter picture. Not sure if an oakley one would have made a difference. I think it's the manufacturers job to test them and the nhl doesn't have say over it AFAIK. Please feel to correct me if wrong though
Wow, how far has our organization crumbled ? If you would have told me before the season Porter would be our #2 center at some point with Flynn on the wing followed by Hecht centering the third line there is no way I would have believed you....
I'll probably tune in...I'm ready for a nap...the game should do the trick.
