So ... as mentioned, the Isles are hurt (we think), Weight feels sorry but not guilty, and Joey McDonald starts with Yann Denis backing up. Former P-Bruin (under Gordon) blueliner Brett Skinner is up from Bridgeport. Meanwhile, Tom Renney is OK after taking a stick to his head during a game (Rutherford IS on to something!), and Renney's team -- despite its hot start -- doesn't think it's played up to potential, but it's looking forward to this as "another home game."
Oh, do put on the foil. It is time!
