With his five-point night (1g, 4a), Tomas Fleischmann is now tied for 7th in AHL playoff scoring.

Flash's five point night also tied a Hershey postseason single-game record.

Captain Conservative:

I love the Washington Post. For me, its now the paper of record after the debacle with the false stories at the New York Times. Especially with its balanced editorial page. I'd like to know what shawon and mothras problem is with it.



I'm a Post fan and subscriber....not sure how it came across that I was agreeing with Leonsis.

This just in, from Washington: Word is that Larry Carriere’s dossier might be among those piled on the desk of Blue Jackets president Mike Priest, whose search for a new general manager is being kept under a tight lid.
Carriere is a former defenseman with the Buffalo Sabres, Atlanta Flames, Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings and Toronto Maple Leafs. After his playing career, he spent 20 years in the Sabres’ hockey operations department and rose to assistant GM. A couple of his fingerprints are on the team you see in the Eastern Conference finals.

The past three years, Carriere has been a pro scout with the Washington Capitals. His reputation is solid.

7-1 [the odds of Carriere landing the Columbus GM job]

• Larry Carriere, Washington pro scout: Not sure if his name floated out of the Capitals camp just to get it out there, but he's not unworthy.
Carriere is ranked seventh in terms of odds in landing the Columbus GM job. He was assistant GM in Buffalo for some time (including acting as interim GM when Muckler was fired in 1997).

I'm actually going to Columbus that weekend. Just got my tickets for the draft last week. To bad the Caps aren't holding a reception there.

Is this the guy that's in love with Novotny and was influential in our trading Z to Buff?

IIRC, when Clark and Ovechkin did this, they had still pics on the Caps website, but I don't recall any video.

I suspect if Clark (and maybe others) is in town he will tag along.

I know, how come they are making him do it so soon what if he comes to the caps and sucks then it would have been a waste for him to throw out the 1st pitch.(i am not saying that he is gonna suck or i don't want him to suck.)

No swedish word for that, a strike is called a "strike"

From the Buffalo News on Zubrus price tag as UFA this summer:

DiCesare: Zubrus might look good to Sabres
Bob DiCesare
Updated: 05/21/07 8:18 AM

Fast food for thought . . .

• It’ll be interesting to see what the free-agent market holds for Dainius Zubrus. He went through the playoffs without a goal after producing a careerhigh 24 in the regular season, 20 of them in Washington with Alexander Ovechkin on his wing. Does that warrant big money? Can’t see him getting too much more than this year’s $1.875 million, which could be good news for the Sabres.

There’s not a winger on the team close to matching Zubrus’ work ethic and effectiveness along the boards. The Sabres need a couple more like him. I mean, a line of Chris Drury centering Tim Connolly and Derek Roy looks good on paper, but it doesn’t look so good in the corners.
