I'll probably miss a part of the game, but it would be nice to see Butler in the lineup. Hoping for a big win, against the top team in the league, this could really boost up their confidence for the last little stretch before the playoffs.
Just like a tormented Cherry racked up his coach, Pat Egan, during an on-ice workout while a defenceman with the Springfield Indians in the 1960s, Shannon plowed into Cory Clouston while on a line rush.
In Shannon’s case, the jarring hit was accidental. Supposedly.
“That’s what happens when you scratch a guy once, he runs the coach,” Clouston joked. “I like that. It was a great hit. I didn’t think he would come at me, but he did. Little ***** is pretty solid.”
I’ve been out of the lineup for a couple of days and I just wanted the coach to know that I am ready to battle,” he said, straight-faced. “Maybe the best hit of my career. (Clouston) said something on the way down, in the form of expletive. He laughed it out after."
