So the ding on his head couldn’t have been that bad: Jeff Hamilton took the whole practice, should be back Wednesday, and even did a little creative problem-solving….
Steve Regier’s Olympics continued, just like last week, with slap shots from just above the goal line, this time to what would be the goalie’s right. The angle is thus better for the righties this time, but Hamilton doesn’t even need it. He looks. Regier has left the puck bucket about 10 feet in front of the net, a little to the near side.
Hamilton dunks his shot off the bucket and in.
Justin Papineau, it sounds, will also return. David Masse is expected out 7-10 days, while Paul Flache is still day-to-day. And Rob Collins was called up.

Great news on all the injured guys. Pleasant surprise about Masse. Many of us thought he may have been done for the season. Friends of mine talked to Paul at Sunday’s game and he said he’s hoping to be back by the weekend the latest.
Love the Regier Olympics. Wish I wasn’t working so many long hours this time of year, I would love to go and watch practice just to see the Regier Olympics.
Thanks for the updates Mike.

This is just a pet peeve and in the big scope of things doesn’t mean a lot, but the team returns home tonight for the first time in nearly a month, they are playing some of the best hockey they have played all season and 6 hours before game time the teams web-site does not even mention that there is a game tonight. Do they not get it? Do they even wonder why they draw some of the smallest crowds in the league? The players deserve better. Very disapointing.

PRussell, you are so right. The office does not make any sense. The Sunday game was still the top story. It should have been taken down on Monday PM and the Wednesday game with the college night info in place.
