That’s what we have to do. Last night was pretty rough, and the coaches are going to do everything they can to get the guys ready for the next game Sunday afternoon in Peoria.
On Sunday, Peoria will be playing in their third game in three days, and their first one at home. Hopefully the Ads can show off some speed and take advantage of a team that may be a bit winded from travelling to Hamilton,
Lake Erie Cleveland, and then back home.
Ready for some good news? Blake Geoffrion told Aaron Sims in last night’s broadcast that he is expecting to dress for Sunday’s game. Geoffrion had been out since November 7th, after taking a blow to the head from the Wolves’ Spencer Machacek.
While it’ll be great to get a center back, Geoffrion will need to start contributing offensively. In 12 games, he has obtained a point in just 3 of them, and none of them have been goals. Earlier in the season, the Thuresson – Geoffrion – Klasen line was getting some good chances. Maybe Blake’s return will jumpstart Thuresson and spark some more production out of Linus? We’ll see.
Yahoo sports….gotta love em. Here’s a clip from the preview for tonight’s Preds/Canes game.
Rinne, who will likely make his 12th consecutive start, has compiled a 1.45 goals-against average while winning both of his career meetings against the Hurricanes (11-11-3). The most recent was a 2-1 shootout win Nov. 20, when Rinne made 21 saves through overtime before stopping two attempts in the tiebreaker.
While I’m not really a betting man, I’d be willing to wager that the consecutive starts streak is going to be broken tonight.
And according to Yahoo! fantasy hockey, Mark Dekanich is owned by someone in 0% of all leagues. So you now have the opportunity to be the first person in the country to pick up Mark Dekanich! Make it happen!
