    Handzus continues on the 2nd line, Pirri remains on the 4th.

    Saad is still on the 1st, so that's good.

    Crawford is starting.

    The east seems even worse than ever this year. Very little reason to miss getting 2 points against this team.

    Should pick up two points here, so long as the Hawks don't try to sleepwalk the entire game.

    Should be a relatively easy win, but let's hope the effort to achieve the victory is there the entire game.

    Q and his vets. Only an injury will get Pirri up there.

    Hoping for an easy win as long as Thomas doesn't stand on his head.

    more like:
    Q wants him to work his way up which just doesn't happen in 2 games. I'm all for giving him that spot over Handzus as long as Handzus is gone from the Top9

    Blues put up 7 against these guys. (albeit, a bit earlier in the season) I can't see how the Hawks don't put up at least 3-5 goals against this team, despite our offensive woes.

    I am sure Pirri will end up playing on a higher line during the game at some point.

    In his latest interviews, Q seems to be warming to Pirri’s game. I can see him getting more ice time if his solid play continues, and hopefully, Q won’t bench him after he makes a play that he doesn’t like (a la Stalberg) - but that’s more likely then not.

    I think it’s quickly becoming evident that Pirri sees the ice well (at any level) and has made some pretty sweet passes to prove it. Most certainly, he should be on the 2nd PP unit, and maybe get some time with the 1st unit if it flounders.

    I'd like to see a big win for once, but Timmy T will probably stand on his head, like all goalies seem to have done so far when facing the Hawks.

    Wow, honestly completely forgot until just now that Thomas was with the Panthers.

    Shows how little attention I've been giving Florida.

    I'm not particularly seeing why Crawford should start this game?

    Feels to me between Florida and Tampa, Florida is the easier matchup to play Khabi. Crawford had a good game against Toronto in the sense that the only chance they had that you wouldn't expect him to stop went in, but he really didn't have to work too hard.

    Ah well. In Pirri's case, two games is a hot weekend, three games starts a trend. Hoping he can pot one against the Panthers and move his way up the lineup. Handzus is just not cutting it between Sharp and Kane.
