Chicago sent Kris Versteeg and Dave Bolland to Rockford of the AHL.
With Hannu Toivonen sent to Peoria, the Blues re-assigned Marek Schwarz to Alaska of the ECHL. Not a good sign for Schwarz owners.
Just received a nice plug from John Derringer, Maureen Holloway and the gang over at The Mighty Q . Love it - thanks guys!
Corey Perry participated in some practice drills yesterday - but not all. He is shooting to return for Game 3.
David Legwand is hoping to practice today with a protective pad on his skate. If it works out, he hopes to return three or four games into the series vs. Detroit.
Kris Draper (groin) and Brad Stuart (finger) will be in the lineup tomorrow for Detroit.
This, from Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun wrote yesterday that forwards Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marian Hossa and Petr Sykora and defenseman Sergei Gonchar "have to be targeted." Of Crosby, who missed 28 games the second half of the season because of a high ankle sprain, Brennan wrote, "Crosby's got a bad RIGHT ankle? How will it stand up to a two-hander? The Senators have to find out." He urged an Ottawa player to "emerge as a modern-day Bobby Clarke" and recalled the 1972 Summit Series, when Clarke slashed the ankle of Valeri Kharlamov, sidelining the Russian star. "They can write whatever they want, but, if somebody was to do that to the best player in the world, they'll be suspended the rest of the playoffs," Penguins winger and enforcer Georges Laraque said. "That writer is just stupid. I've never heard anything so stupid." Crosby, asked about the article, said without missing a beat, "It's my left." "
Dallas line combos in practice yesterday: Ribeiro with Morrow and Lehtinen; Richards with Lundqvist and Eriksson; that pretty much leaves Modano stuck with Miettinen and Hagman.
