John Stevens and Jake Bischoff make their pro debuts tonight in Allentown, Stevens where he practiced Tuesday between Michael Dal Colle and Tanner Fritz, Bischoff on the third pair (on the right, as they rushed) with Pat Cullity. Jon Landry sits out to make room, as does Ross Johnston, serving his one game for 10 fights; Josh Winquist goes into his spot with Ben Holmstrom and, tonight, Darren Nowick.
It is, as mentioned, kind of a big game. You could just about make a case for the next five, at least, being must-win. Which then takes you to Hartford and Springfield, so them, too, kinda. Which takes you to the last game of the season in Wilkes-Barre as Providence meets Hershey. So…
