Time to see if there is any vinegar in the piss.

Since bag skating the deadbeats on the morning of the second of back to backs is not an option, here is what I would do.

Start Schneider

Ebbett in Silent 3, on his way to the airport

If Rome is ready, Kevin gets press box time
Ham-KB4
Edler-Salo
AnAl-Rome

1st unit PP
Burrows-Kesler-Booth

2nd unit
PP Higgins-Hank-Dan

PK units
Burrows-Kesler
Hank-Dan
Higgins-Hansen

The idea of not playing the twins on on the PK was to increase their 5 on 5 and PP time. Take that away from them and make them re earn their front line status.

Shaken, and hopefully stirred.

Schnieder is starting - so we're already off to a good start. ;)

At some point this team has to wake up. Is this lack of interest due to the long season? Or is it a case of "We're making the playoffs anyways, so why bother til next year"?

I feel for you season tickets holders out there.

AV laughingly mentioned that if we win our next 2 it'll be our best October since he got here. Also, CS was apparently already planned to start tonight.

What I will be watching for;

- Will Janik Hansen be a participant or an audience member like he has been all season?
- Will Kevin Bieksa continue to play like the KB of 2 seasons ago, or the KB awesomeness of last season?
- How long will the new media/fan/coach favorite - Manny Malhotra continue to suck and not be called out for it?
- Will Dan Hamhius be the Dan Hamhius of last season or continue being this defenseman who sucks?
- Will Cody Hodgson continue to play great hockey and not given good credit for it by AV?
- Will I again marvel, during watching tonights game, at the long leash that AV gives Alberts and the short one he gave Tanev?
- Will David Booth look a little more like he knows where to be on the ice unlike the Edmonton game?
- Will Salo continue to amaze me?

Nice pace on this game. Both teams are flying.

Fancy stickwork by Danny... almost worked.

Ballard had room there.

Monster hit on Jackman by Volpatti. I'll take that 2!!

When will Bieksa learn that the only thing holding on to the puck in his own zone does is give the opposition time to get into proper position and block the passing lanes?

Bullshit call

Yup. Still got 17 minutes last game.
