    Maybe we can stay COVID free this trip gentlemen, hmmm? Plus, we get the excitement of a possible Ned start at some point. Who knew stress could be this much fun, right?

    Lets go!!!!!

    Lorentz, McGinn, Marty, Foegele, and Geekie, who plays?

    Ned or Reimer?

    Defense is basically set. Can Skjei and Pesce handle another 22+ minutes night if the game is close? Bean and Fleury will be rotated in less.

    Well most big cities do smell. But that isn't "trap" you are smelling, though it sounds similar...

    Since Lorentz is a taxi squad member, doesn't he have to sit, else we'll be putting one of the others on waivers?

    I thought we'd be going with "despite what the last two games looked like, we are playing the Blackhawks tonight not the Stars".

    Don't think so - healthy scratches are still a thing.

    Unless I am missing a detail, I dont think so. I dont believe Fast or Slavin are on the active roster so, we dont have 23 active players.

    edit: as Anton said, someone can be a scratch.

    Someone should make sure Rod sees this, I hope he’s considered it.

    Today, however, the Carolina Hurricanes put out a statement with an update on Mrazek’s status.
    “It looks like it’s going to be a little longer than we had hoped,” head coach Rod Brind’Amour said on Monday. “A little more serious damage there.”
    In fact, after further evaluation, Mrazek’s injury might require surgery.
    “It’s looking like that’s probably what’s going to happen,” Brind’Amour said. “It’s a more serious injury than we had hoped.”
    This is a pretty serious blow considering Mrazek is off to one of the best starts of his career. Through three games, he has two shutouts and boasts an excellent 0.99 goals-against average as well as a .955 save percentage. While I get nervous seeing him in net because of his tendencies to drift, he has been nothing short of spectacular to start the season.
    How do the Canes manage this loss? Thankfully, James Reimer has been fantastic to begin the season, building off his encouraging season the year prior. He is undefeated to start the season at 3-0-0. The Canes will need “Optimus Reim” to continue to be a stalwart in net to stay near the top of the Central division.

    Seems like an easy win. We should probably just relax, hold back some energy for later, and not take this one too seriously.

    Keys to victory:

    Maintain constant pressure and challenge: play our game and we sharply increase of winning, no playing down
    Get in the goalies face and hang around the crease: their goalies arent good and give up rebounds. Capitalize on it
    Shutdown Kane, Kubalik, Strome, Keith and Janmark. The game becomes much easier if we shutdown those 4 scoring threats.
