Ouch, Skille, Dowell, Burish? Too many Badgers!!!
Nice to see Backstrom get a rest after a nice showing against Columbus. I would look for more of the same tonight with Harding getting all 60, then maybe Schaefer gets the next start.
Things to look for tonight:
- Colton Gillies with more PT
- Fewer penalties (please god, it was killing the flow on Wednesday)
- Petr Kalus. What can the young man bring to the table?
- Where will Josh Harding's head be? He was awfully good last season. Will he be back in that form?
- How many goals will Martin Skoula be directly responsible?
- Patrick Kane at center, Brian Campbell on the ice, Jonathan Toews with the C. Youth rules in the second city
- Craig Weller. Who will he try to fight tonight
- Lastly, and most importantly. BOOGIE!!!!!!!
What are you looking for tonight?
