"What just happened here," Vol…. what, 9?

on
Gah, a game like this, where you talk to five people, quote four of them, and regret not getting to at least two moreā€¦ –Morrison. Hershey lamented not making it tougher for him, but he made a couple of tough saves through screens, held the fort on a scramble or two, and was beaten only […] [Read More]

The kids were all kinds of interested about who wore what number. In fact, Howard Saffan had to cut short the number questions, they were […] [Read More]

Edmonton recalls Robert Nilsson. Been a quietly good couple of days, it seems from the stands, at The surprisingly frigid Rinks at Shelton. Fata didn’t skate today but worked out; nothing serious, we’re told. Rullier is expected to play sometime this weekend. The lines have remained the same from Norfolk.
