Some things you will hear ad nauseum tonight:
- Lindy Ruff’s 1000th game! All with one team to start his career!
- 155 coaching changes (DRINK)!
You get the idea. It’s the battle of a backup goalie versus an AHL goalie, with both teams trying to claw their way out of the bottom of the Eastern conference. Craig Rivet didn’t make the trip, looks like Butler back in. Perhaps for the best. Patrick Lalime is back as the backup, apparently his appendix is in fine working order. Interesting how no one is clamoring for him now that Enroth won a game, including a solid shootout performance.
I am cautiously optimistic about tonight, considering the opponent, it’s on the road, and they beat this same goalie not that long ago quite soundly. Beyond that, not saying anything else until I see the effort from the past few games continue on for a few more.
