It's been a minute since I've been able to udder those words. But god damn is it a great night to win a hockey game. Tuukka Rask is unwell and Jaroslav Halak will be starting tonight vs. Philly. Not ideal that Tuukka is out but I have faith in the Halakness Monster.
Ondrej Kase arrived in Toronto yesterday but he's gonna need some time to catch up to speed. Nick Ritchie will be out as well. Brad Marchand was injured during Thursday's game but he's good to go tonight. Jack Studnicka starts alongside Krejci and DeBrusk after a great exhibition. Here are the expected lines:
Puck drops at 3 pm. I'm getting married at 6 and may not walk down the aisle if there is anything less than a B's victory.
B's will be fighting to keep the 1 seed in the round robin. Don't want to start on a bad note. I think they might have a sour taste from how they started their exhibition vs. CBJ but no doubt the leaders on this team will get the guys ready to go.
Unfinished Business. Let's go.
