Nothing earth shattering here. Win four games in a row, insert a guy who was injured:
Nate Thompson taking fourth-line rushes with Emerson Etem and Tim Jackman. Yeah, he's in for Game 1.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) April 30, 2015
BB said there was no doubt that Thompson would be back in whenever he was ready. Called him a key player for Ducks all season.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) April 30, 2015
On the Flames side:
Same lines as Game 6 via @Fan960Wills Gaudreau-Monahan-Hudler Bennett-Backlund-Colborne Ferland-Stajan-Jones Bollig-Jooris-Shore #CGYvsANA— Kristen Odland (@KristenOdlandCH) April 30, 2015
And that was corrected to note that Drew Shore is actually in for Mason Raymond on the fourth line.
In that case, he’d draw in for Mason Raymond on the Bollig/Jooris line.— Kristen Odland (@KristenOdlandCH) April 30, 2015
Also, not technically a morning skate update but here is some HARDCORE goalie analysis from the great Kevin Woodley on NHL.com.
