The exotic Saturday practice

Scott Pellerin didn’t promise the lines would be the same today as they were Friday. Well, they were. There you go. (No promises about tomorrow yet.)

They finished up with some power-play work, with the top unit looking like it did at the end of last Sunday’s game, with Johan Sundstrom and Ryan Strome together with Anders Lee. (Alan Quine was up front on one of the other units, for what it’s worth, with Andrey Pedan on the point).

Binghamton opened its weekend Friday with a 6-2 win at Syracuse; 40 saves for Nathan Lawson. The teams do it again in Binghamton tonight, and Grady Whittenburg says it’ll be Nate again tonight. Bridgeport, meanwhile, will be on six days’ rest tomorrow. Fun with scheduling.

Stockton opens up tonight at home.

Scary time in Winnipeg last night as Jacob Trouba went face-first into the boards and was stretchered off. Able to joke about it later on, though.

And RIP, Speaker Tom Foley and Bum Phillips.
