Sabado mas pequeno

|

I had a half-joking “Sabado Gigante” header made up when I pulled tonight’s box scores. Last night’s chain of one-point clinches, setting seeds 1-6 in the Eastern Conference, made this night just a little less gigante.

If you needed any proof of that, the Clear Day lists will probably just be a suggestion for the coaches in these two games. Bridgeport had no exhibition games before the regular season, but it’ll have a couple before the postseason. The bus dropped off at least five guys on the way across from Providence to here. Groin pulls, flu bug, seasonal allergies: something along those lines. Day-to-day, no doubt.

Kenny Reiter, most notably, makes his professional debut. Justin DiBenedetto returns from suspension. Sean Backman wears an ‘A’.

The Penguins have a boatload of defensemen dressed and one to scratch. (It’s Peter Merth.) Here’s what I thought I saw the first time.
