That was a much needed win last night. Gutsy as well since numerous players were battling "flu-like symptoms". Made for some interesting line juggling within the game itself as some of the guys were having to head for the trainers room during the game for attention.
Sitting just one point out of eighth at the moment, with a dreaded back-to-back looming. And it's the Kings in the second game. Another defining moment is at hand.
In the news, Jack Campbell gets the callup and Bachman joins Nilstorp in Cedar Park. Campbell could see his NHL debut in either Colorado or LA, but Mike Heika also speculated Lehtonen could go in both and the Bachman move may have been to get him playing time to work on fixing his game. Keep your eyes on this one, especially you Campbell owners.
Also from Mike, he was asked on twitter about Derek Roy and what could happen if they don't get an extension done by the trade deadline. Mike's guess is that a deal won't get done and he will be traded, but he did caution that that is merely his guess as of today. You wouldn't think that they'd trade Roy so soon, and after giving up Otter to get him, and after footing the bill for getting his shoulder patched up. Then again he is UFA and they have to keep him or get something for him. The spotlight is burning bright on GM Joe.
