No Roenick tonight. He'll be at the bar watching the game instead of playing. You know how it's no big deal to just go eat dinner when you are scratched... What a buffoon. Nice way to finish out a career.
I think Phoenix won't be caught sleeping with us recently leapfrogging them in the standings. Should be a good one.
Dr. No could see another shut-out tonight, starting a mini-revenge tour for all the shut-outs we've had against us this season. No prediction for a score, but I find it hard to believe we'd lose to the 'Yotes as well as we've been playing.
Agree that this will not be a roll over. Actually this game scares me more than Dallas. Phoenix has lost 3 in a row...we are riding pretty confident right now and things are certainly going our way.... I smell a let down.
Also look for some fireworks between Laraque and Shelley. The Dispatch also has Brule listed as a scratch and Picard in the lineup.
Boys need to come out strong..play their system and certainly limit the penalties. I look for Z to grab a point or two and the big line of Nash/Feds/Modin to get on the board. This should be a physical game as it was the last time we met them at the Nat.
Also..somebody please squash that bug known as Mike Comrie...
