New York, New York!


Good News! From the Syracuse Crunch Blog:

Crunch forward Nikita Filatov, who has been out with a bad sinus infection, said he should be reading [sic] for Friday's game vs. visiting Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He practiced on Tuesday, but is not going to Toronto.

"You can announced in the paper, Friday, big show,'' he joked.

- Filatov and injured forward Stefan Legein had a spirited post-practice workout. With Filatov listening, Legein claimed that in some scoring drills he dominated his teammate.

"I want to change my number to 91, because I'm better than him,'' Legein joked. Filatov wears No. 90.

Legein, who has been out with a broken finger, said he could get medical clearance as soon as Wednesday and might play Friday.

I'm glad to see that literacy is taken very seriously by the Crunch.

And I really enjoyed the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall - especially because I am a big fan of the documentary 'National Treasure'.

And because it was free.

Well -- sorry to dampen the mood -- but I read that Karl Alzner got sent back to Hershey. But hey, it's still another 2 odd weeks till the Caps/Pens game -- plenty of time for him to make it back to Washington.

JK said...

Yeah, Alzner's back with the Bears as part of the never-ending defense shuffle. Hopefully he'll be back -- he deserves to be back! Sorry mer :(
