For those of you who can’t make it downtown, there will be a video stream on the team website.
Feel free to discuss both of these games here it he comments. Did anyone attend the practices yesterday, and if so do you have any observations to share?
I will be at the game tonight and will try to pop into these comments and on Twitter. I’m most excited to see Pierre-Luc Dubois in person, especially on a line with Boone Jenner and Nick Foligno.
