On this day 2018, Mantha-AA-Vanek was a line. I dubbed it The Selke Line.

Good that Larkin appears ready to play.  That hit from behind with the type of neck injury he had is really a cause for concern not just for his career but long term health.

Staal is not practicing.

Wow Stecher clearly our #8 Dman in teh pecking order, not surprised with Leddy on the team but I bet he is.

Was Staal hurt in the last game?

MC, Staal was one of the players in post game interviews, nothing was mentioned.

During the previous game Mickey said Stetcher is injured

Larkin missed the Vancouver game since he was obviously injured, but does that count as his suspension game? 

Understandably he’s forfeiting salary for a game - just a matter of how quick they can get him back on the ice for the team.  I’m guessing since he’s not on IR the Van game counts as the suspension, right?

Correct TK, he can play tomorrow.

It’s amazing, but 2 games in and I’m way more concerned with our PK than I am with our PP.
Didn’t see that coming….

It’ll tighten up, especially as Seider settles in the certain teams go to plays.  They do have a tendency to lose track of coverage on rotations though, as a unit.  Would be nice to see more active sticks and stick the slot man a little tighter

Our pk units have had a ton of turnover since last year. Give it sometime.
