According to The Register, Getzlaf continues to struggle with the laceration on his leg, and the line rushes were:
Matt Beleskey-Saku Koivu-Corey Perry
Bobby Ryan-Kyle Chipchura-Dan Sexton
Ryan Carter-Todd Marchant-Troy Bodie
Mike Brown-Petteri Nokelainen-George Parros
Scott Niedermayer-James Wisniewski
Ryan Whitney-Sheldon Brookbank
Brett Festerling-Nick Boynton
The paper also has Carlyle leaning toward Hiller tonight, despite a demoralizingly soft goal on New Year's Eve. You'll also notice from Stephens rundown, a brief discussion on Boynton's attempt to protect Sexton the other night against Minnesota. This team's desire to protect its small players was a great concern of mine when we acquired Sexton. The kid can shake off a check and plays great defense, but make no mistake, the Ducks are once again entrusted with protecting a high-flying talent. Props to Boynton for recognizing that, and shame on all parties involved if they don't continue to watch Sexy's back.
If the game goes south, I may hit the 'Record' button and go to the movies. It's not that I have better things to do than watch this team lose, but that activity is becoming a waste of whiskey.
Post any game info and lineup changes in the comments.
F all of our L's!
PS: Daniel has recently proposed FOWL! as F--- Our Winless Lives! Thoughts?
