THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • If you would have told me six months ago that I would be this excited to have Alex Chiasson back in the lineup after a few weeks off from injury, I probably...actually, I probably would have believed you. The man has 16 goals and a killer 32 shooting percentage. Can he keep the hot stick?
  • Third pair of Brandon Manning / Kevin Gravel has got me wondering a couple things. First thing is: I listened to Chiarelli talk about how Manning was going to play ahead of Gravel in the lineup becasue he’s “meaner” or something. Secondly, since when does Kevin Gravel play the right side?
  • I would’ve guessed that Koskinen would have started tomorrow, but he’s in tonight. It’s got me wondering if they’re planning on going with Koskinen back-to-back in Anaheim tomorrow. Not my call, but hey, it’s not like I’m the GM trying to save my bacon here.

Let’s all have fun out there.
