Anyone want a goalie? SJ has put netminder Antero Nittymaki on waivers.
Sharks Ice, Wed 10 am:
I wasn’t supposed to be here today. I don’t mean I’m not allowed, I mean I’m so bad at reading schedules that I didn’t realize there were more Captain’s Practices this week so when I said last week was my last that was inaccurate.
There’s a big heater hanging over the bleachers in the East rink. This rink does not have the new glass and boards system. The zamboni demonstrates how much less flexible it is by giving it a sound bump before the skaters arrive.
Pavs, Mitchell, McCarthy, Couture, McGinn, Havlat take the ice. Now Jumbo and Burnzie and Ferriero and Andrew Murray. Then Douglas Murray and Demers and a number 10.
From Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer:
The Flyers will continue to use goalies Marty Biron and Antero Niittymaki the rest of the season.
But it has become clear that the order has changed.
Biron, who was the main reason the Flyers reached the Eastern Conference finals last season, will now have to play his way back into the No. 1 spot.
Until further notice, Niittymaki is the main man.
