Quick Preview:

WELCOME TO THE INJURY BOWL

No two teams in hockey right now are having such painful inconsistency problems brought about chiefly from having to play a good portion of their AHL roster. Both squads are at .500, 5th or 6th in division, and missing 4 players due to injury, all of whom are pretty important to their success.

This matchup will basically be a battle of the depth and schematics...and boy in the schematics department does Anaheim come up short with everyone’s favorite coach for giving up multi-goal leads by sitting on them: Randy Carlyle.

This game will probably be one of two things: Played at a hundred miles per hour or a 2-1 snorefest that I will be awake for and I alone.

FUN FUN FUN!
