Frans Nielsen thinks he can play tonight. Katie Strang said it would be a game time decision between him and Rob Schremp Hockey. I say let them battle it out in a pre-game shootout: The Frans Deke vs. the Schremp Dangle. Whose your money on?
For fun: An AHL practice update on Rick DiPietro ... and in Philly, they are their own worst enemies filled with self-doubt, so root for them to fall tonight to the Canucks, who are playing back-to-back road games after thumping New Jersey last night.
This is the every-game game thread here at Lighthouse Hockey. It's sort of a chat and sort of a journal of instant reactions. You can use it to chat up the game, leave poignant hockey observations, or trade opinions on the influence of Warrior Soul and your favorite egg nog recipes. (Can't go wrong with cognac.) I'll probably be in and out during this one. So "dodge the bullet, or carry the gun -- the choice is yours."
