News that I completely missed last week: Sena Acolatse is back in the Worcester lineup, has been since March 1st. I may be inattentive but I think that is exciting, awesome and a good thing for the Sharks.
Worcester only played two games since last Monday, a relatively leisurely schedule for the AHL. Saturday, Sebastian Stalberg scored the only first period goal to give the Sharks the lead over the Providence Bruins. The Sharks had a fair chance to take a two goal lead when James Livingston was awarded a penalty shot but Bruins' goalie Niklas Svedberg stopped that. The Bruins came back in the second to score two power play goals and take the lead away. A couple of minutes later, James Livingston tied the game back up. In the third, the Bruins retook the lead and it wasn't until 19:00 of the regulation that John McCarthy tied it again. The game went to a seven-round shootout that the Bruins won with goals from Craig Cunningham and Trent Whitfield. The one Sharks shootout goal was scored by Denny Urban.

Tonight’s lineup features Vlasic’s return but no Burns, the second line on top (minus Havlat, plus Ferriero) and a new mix of lower lines: McCarthy-Desjardins-Wingels, Mashinter-Guite-MacIntyre. Oh, and the McGinn-Handzus-Mitchell line which isn’t at all new.
Nemo was back on the ice for practice. Praise the hockey gods. Petrecki is also ready to play, after quietly finishing hip rehab. I wondered where he was disappearing to during scrimmages. He will be with Vlasic, Braun with Vandermeer and White with Demers. I keep seeing White listed as “C White” instead of just “White.” I know we had another White last season but let it go already, Colin is our new White, I think it is safe to just say “White.”
