Hello State of Hockey!
We’ve seen an exciting (or nerve-wracking, depending on how you want to view it) shootout win against Phoenix and a close but depressing loss to the Flames at home.
Good news: Erik Christensen seems to be finding his stride. Hopefully this continues. He has solid hands, I’m just not convinced quite yet that he’s willing to pay the physical price to score.
Cal Clutterbuck will likely return tonight against Dallas. That’s also good news.
Kassian is a maybe, he’s a bit banged up according to some media reports.
Still out are Koivu, Lundin, Bouchard, Latendresse, and Backstrom.
It’s going to be a tough one…Dallas is on a hot streak, and our record against them hasn’t been overly promising as of late.
