That’s where I’ll be, instead of working the Trenton Devils game tonight. This was a scheduled off day for me, of sorts. I was never supposed to work this game for The Trentonian, and I had the option of going to the Leafs-Devils game instead.
I initially wanted to go because I wanted to see Jonas Gustafsson, then I really wanted to go because I’d get to see Dion Phaneuf with the Leafs. After deciding last night that I wouldn’t go because of the weather, my previously mentioned friend Matt offered me a ticket to the game this morning…and this, I’ll be seeing Mr. Gustafsson, Mr. Phaneuf and even Mr. Kovalchuk.
I’ll be back for the unbelievably ill-scheduled Sunday afternoon game against Elmira…not sure if the roster will have changed by then, but it seems to be status quo for tonight for the time being. Patrick Davis got sent down to Lowell from New Jersey, so that may eventually create a trickle-down effect.
Wheeling comes into town on February 21st, and they just got Aaron Boogaard from WBS. So if nothing else, that’ll be entertaining…
