Doc kicks us off by saying there is no sugar-coating the last game (you know which one we’re talking about), and calls it “the clunkiest of the clunkers”. Pookie is aghast – “That almost makes it sound cute!” Sadly, we’re not really expecting anything better tonight. We’ll be taking it as a good game if the Devils can lose by fewer than five goals. And not get shut out. And get more than eight shots in the last two periods. And… well, you know.
19:26 As Zach, Travis and Gio come out like a group of guys who’ve been suffering punishment practices for the last two days, we realize we can barely see what’s going on. Our picture tonight? Awful. Come on, Center Ice – find a way to make HD available to all of us.
18:50 Madden and Pando pick up where the Travises left off, and Biron is forced to make a save on a shot by Greener. Pookie: “Well, we know this: the guys don’t like riding the bikes and doing pushups.”
17:00 Chico is trying to tell us that the grueling practices Sutter’s put the guys through the last two days “weren’t punishment”, but were rather a reminder of what level they’re supposed to play at. Suuuuuuuuuure, Chico.
