Obviously, they requested to be sent down so they could be present for Country Music Night, Friday at the Bradley Center with Rodney Atkins.
Ok, probably not.
But they are coming back to Milwaukee, at least for the weekend. With the NHL on their all-star break, this may be just so that they get some meaningful ice-time. Tough to say whether they’ll be called back AFTER the all-star break, but it wouldn’t be surprising. Both players have made good impressions with the folks in Nashville, and both have contributed on both sides of the ice.
But let’s live in the now. It’ll be great to have them back in the lineup this weekend. You’d rather see Halischuk and Mueller in the lineup than say….Dan Gendur, right?
