Holy eff! A team we don’t have a worse record than, finally. That never bodes well for us, however. Well, really nothing bodes well for us, so this is just any other game, I suppose.
It would appear that Eager is a scratch tonight with back spasms. Might be cause for concern, as he’s had troubles with that throughout the year. Teemu Hartikainen has been called up. I’m curious as to where they play him. Just simply in Eager’s spot? Probably, but I could see him making a decent impression higher up in the lineup. Problem is, he hasn’t arrived yet. So he might not even suit up for this one. Peckham is in for Sutton. Doobie gets the start.
I’ll be at this one tonight. It so happens to be Ryan Nugent-Hopkins mini-stick night. If you’re going.. get there early if you want one.
