No Nathan Lawson. Man. Lawson, 3-0 as a starter since the lockout ended, backs up Marc Cheverie (first Binghamton start) in the Senators’ only visit.
But there’s Darien (Hugh Jessiman) and New Canaan (Jack Downing) and UConn (Cole Schneider) represented in front of Cheverie. For Bridgeport, Matt Watkins returns, John Persson’s in, and Marc Cantin is out there for warmup, though he looks like the last scratch. With Watkins in the spot where he was in Atlantic City, Mike Halmo moves to replace Brett Gallant with Chad Costello and Jack Combs.
F: Watkins (A)-Nelson-Niederreiter
F: Zibanejad-Da Costa-Stone
R: J. Hebert. L: Redding, Colby.
Meanwhile in that other league (#hockeyisback if you didn’t know where to look the past three months), they’re on. They opened, though, with a local tie, apparently: The family of Ana Marquez-Greene helped raise the banner in L.A.
