Oh, baby

on
Indeed, Joey MacDonald’s wife is having the baby, so the goalie has headed home for a few days. Mike Mole is in town in the meantime, and it looks like Mike Morrison will get a chance to play at least one game. All else status quo.

Notes from the West II: Look, kids! Krog!

We go back now to our Western Conference correspondent, my little brother (“The Little Punk in Illinois”), for this report from the Rosemont Horizon.

New old-fashioned way

on
Steve Stirling in the house. Kevin Colley in the house. Felt like old times. Mike Dunham was in to work with the goalies. He’ll be here tomorrow, too. Got a sneak preview of tomorrow night’s opening video. Looks nice. I got a kick out of one guy who was included. You’ll know it when you […] [Read More]
