Game plans: Lehigh Valley postgame

To sort-of steal a line from Bracken Kearns, 10 games ago, who knows how this turns out. They’re down 2-0 early, then again by a goal after they erase that deficit. “We stayed with it,” Ben Holmstrom

All hands back on deck: Thursday notes

If that’s all: Thursday notes

They were without Mike Halmo this morning; swelling around his eye from last night’s puck to the face, so he didn’t skate. They looked roughly the same as they were (Sebastian Collberg in his spot),
