Early game equals brunch for all of you who (like me) aren’t going Black Friday shopping. But first!
- Matt Hendricks (Oilers) blocked a Shea Weber shot and left the game with a leg injury.
- Garbutt (Stars) suspended two games.
- Lowry (Jets) suspended one game.
- Mike Fisher (Predators) activated from IR.
- Devin Setoguchi (Jets) cleared waivers, re-assigned.
- Colton Sceviour is ill. Stars are calling up Curtis McKenzie.
- Ryan McDonagh (Rangers) activated from IR.
- Tanner Glass (Rangers) has flu-like symptoms.
- Paul Carey and Karl Stollery (Avalanche) re-assigned to the Lake Erie Monsters.
What I’m Watching:
The Thanksgiving Day Special, Chicago at Anaheim, Vancouver at Columbus, and Minnesota at Dallas.
Players to Watch:
- Nick Spaling (Penguins) was skating on a line with Hornqvist and Crosby – kid has come a long way from being a 3rd liner for Nashville.
- Bryan Little (Jets) has a three game goal streak.
- David Pastrnak (Bruins) has graduated to skating on the top line with Marchand and Bergeron during practice. Odds are he starts the game there as well.
- After coming off being shutout last night, look for some offense to come out of the Oilers – I’m keeping my eye on Taylor Hall.
- Blue Jackets Tim Erixon will slot in for Kevin Connauton tonight
- Keep an eye on the new 3rd line for the Canucks – all centers. Richardson, Vey, & Matthias are skating together.
