Having a great night at MSG. Saw one of my all-time faves over dinner in the pressroom: Mr. John Davidson, big cheese of the St. Louis Blues in town for NHL meetings. Then bumped into Blogmama and Mrs. TR during warmups.
Now Go Time.
Lineup remains the same, with Prust playing with his nasty eye, Williams probably in for White, and everything else the same as last night, including the goalie. Eminger and White would be prucha’d.
I can’t help but chuckle at how badly the Devils are handling this Kovalchuk thing. Say he missed a meeting, or was late for a meeting, or whatever, and get it over with. Now it will live until somebody nails down the reason, and it has legs … you know, with the internet and all.
I wonder if Avery might remind Kovalchuk he was prucha’d last night. Or if he might have something to say to Brodeur. Or if he can get under Clarkson’s skin as usual. Ya think?
