The biggest news of the day is the unsurprising announcement that Canada will ride Roberto Luongo the rest of the way. Because, at this point, if another goalie change is needed, the team is toast anyway.
Angus didn’t really say he was off to see women’s curling last night. Really he meant to type… men’s…drinking…
New line combos – Crosby, Iginla and Staal; Getzlaf, Nash and Perry.
Patric Hornqvist is okay and will play tomorrow for Team Sweden after getting knocked on the noggin’ by Joni Pitkanen. Pitkanen was suspended one game for the incident.
Mikael Backlund has eight points in his last seven games – after just 18 in 44 prior to that. Sounds like his NHL stint gave him more confidence. He could be in the NHL for good when the break is over. Fall at the latest.
You can see Backlund and the rest of the Heat live from a luxury suite with me and some of the DobberHockey writers as they take on the Marlies in Toronto. I have SEVEN tickets left – for just $35 you get to watch the game in luxury, food included, and talk fantasy hockey with some of the best in the business (and in the case of myself – THE best in the business). Game is March 21, a Sunday, at 1:30. BUY HERE.
You can also donate a $15 ticket to the Children’s Aid Society and send a kid to a Marlies game. I am 14 away from my goal of 50. DONATE HERE.
