Per the OC Register, Giguere will likely start, Saku Koivu will be a gametime decision, and so will Ryan Carter, now limping on his other foot after an injury in practice. Erik Christensen will likely step in for Koivu, and Sheldon Brookbank will be available to play forward if Carter can't go. On the other side, no Sammy Pahlsson or Raffi Torres, and the team should start Mathieu Garon.
Both teams are coming off embarrassing losses. The Ducks yawned their way through 60 minutes and a shorthanded goal by Parise on Wednesday, and the Blue Jackets were subjected to a 9-1 loss to the Red Wings (video highlights of that debacle after the jump). Nine to one?! Thank god we don't have to play the Red Wings any time soon. Oh, wait. That's right.
The Ducks released their official yearbook for the 09-10 season, or as the puck bunnies call it: Tiger Beat - Anaheim Edition. It's available for free here and available at the team store for $10.
9 to 1? That's either good news for tonight and bad news for tomorrow or bad news all around if we lose to both of them.
