Game Notes:

  • Adam McQuaid is out for six to eight weeks with a broken thumb. The list of injuries this guy has sustained is just horrible. Dougie Hamilton and Brad Marchand were back on ice yesterday after missing practices throughout the week.
  • Columbus coach Todd Richards attributes much of their recent defensive woes to "not managing the third period." They've allowed 3.56 goals per game, ranked last in the Eastern Conference.
  • Poor Nathan Horton.

NEVER FORGET:

"Lucic with an empty net goal," we hear for the 435th time.
