I am taking a maintenance day (upper and lower body non-injuries) after splitting time between my two jobs the last few days.
Rick Nash also took one today but is expected to play tomorrow, according to our friends who tweet over there——————>
Keep an eye to your right for John Tortorella’s explanation on the Chris Kreider demotion, and for Brad Richards talking about being benched in the third period Thursday.
Tortorella also confirmed to the reporters (those who did actually, you know, work on Saturday) what I’ve been reporting all week, that J.T. Miller’s contract status—i.e. the clock starting on his entry-level contract when he plays his sixth game tomorrow—never was an issue.
I know, not much info coming out of blog HQ today, but I figured you need a new post.
Also, the Washington Post is reporting that Mike Green (lower body injury) might not play tomorrow, and if not, then you guys get to see one of your faves, Tom Poti. Braden Holtby starts in goal for the Caps. Don’t forget it’s a 6 p.m. game.
