- Storyline: Travis St. Denis is back in. John Stevens is still day-to-day, though he has played the first two games. Best-of-5, tied at 1, that’s about what you need to know. Edit: OK, one more thing: The Bears added Andrew Cherniwchan, former Providence Bruin, on a PTO from South Carolina.
- Meh, what else is going on: Cleveland can finish off Syracuse tonight. Grand Rapids-Chicago and Bakersfield-Colorado are both 1-1, too. Charlotte-Providence waits for tomorrow, but the Checkers will have two defensemen suspensded, with Trevor Carrick out the rest of the series. San Diego took a 2-1 lead on San Jose last night and can finish it tomorrow. Elsewhere, Jim Fuller caught up with Newtown’s Melissa Samoskevich.
- RIP, Kelly Thomson.
Reading tea leaves from the pregame show, yesterday and the online box, looks like John Stevens is out:
probably, will confirm if AHLTV comes back
F: St. Denis-Koivula-C.Bourque
Wahlstrom – Kubiak – Ho-Sang
D: Aho-Burroughs (C)
–Bridgeport started Jones’ line with Aho-Burroughs, which had matched up against the Sgarbossa line. Hershey put the Pilon line against Jones, then had Sgarbossa against Lorito with Wotherspoon and Helgeson. See if the Bears are concerned over time.
