Hot rumor: Remember Joel Bouchard? He might be back in the lineup sooner than later. (Not this week, but soon.)
What was that score? It was 9-6? Did Aki Berg kick a field goal? But hey, Eric Godard and Rob Collins with their first NHL goals, that’s neat.
Just had one of those dumb moments watching the rerun here on TV… Do you get these? They panned the bench, following as Garth Snow skated out to the net after Stajan’s short-hander, and I looked up and thought for an instant to myself, “gee, that looks like Rob Collins.” Well, duh.
Player-coach Alain Nasreddine? Not bad. (Gotta check something — there’s a rule that says a player-coach can’t serve as captain.)
More fun: DiPietro and Drury on the Olympic team.
Good luck to Larry Robinson; stress stinks. And godspeed to the retiring Vlady Malakhov, one of the four to complete the trifecta. Know who has the best chance to be No. 5? Joel Bouchard. See, it’s all a circle.
