Let’s go over some news and notes:

Off the trail...
- Before we get to the big news, Erik Cernak has been suspended for two games. [ESPN]
- As a result of the accusations, along with allegations of physical abuse, it’s really looking like Bill Peters could be fired very soon. He will not be behind the bench against the Sabres tonight. It’s obviously not nice to feel good about someone potentially losing their job, but this is a reasonable exception. [Matchsticks & Gasoline]
- Is hockey really for everyone? Based on the recent events unfolding in the NHL, including the Bill Peters situation, it doesn’t exactly seem that way. Daniel Carcillo said it best:
