Forward lines at this point (d-lines remain unchanged from last season):

Bickell / Toews / Kane
Sharp / Handzus / Hossa
Saad / Shaw / Bollig
? / Kruger / ?

So we've seen Saad shift back to LW after a poor showing at center, and that brings Handzus back to the second line, where he played well late last season.

With Bollig shifting to RW on the 3rd line and Saad moving down there as well, it's pretty obvious they're going use the 3rd line as a checking line, where it was more of a scoring line last season. I'm hugely anti-Bollig, but I have to wonder how he has developed to earn a spot that high.

Still on the roster are: Hayes, Smith, Morin, Nordstrom, Pirri, and Winchester. I'd have to imagine Smith and Hayes have the inside track to play on opening day but we'll see how it plays out. Smith is essentially the guy pegged to replace Frolik on the 4th line/PK and he's had a nice preseason so far.

New rule which will be in effect tomorrow:

Quote:
The NHLPA has approved hybrid icing for the 2013-14 campaign.
That means we'll see the rule in effect on Tuesday. What that means is that if the defending player is tied or leading a race to the puck in an icing situation once he reaches the his own zone's faceoff dots, then the linesman whistles the play dead and it's treated as an icing. If the attacking player is leading the race by that point, then the play continues as it normally would. The idea is to prevent a lot of high-speed hits along the boards that can lead to some serious injuries. However, some players are concerned that the linesman might end up calling icing on plays where the attacking player would have otherwise won the race.

I don't think they're too concerned about it if they passed the rule. My recollection is that international and collegiate hockey already use this rule so it's not like they'll be reinventing the wheel for these guys.

But whatever - I'm just pumped that it's GAME DAY!

Got back from class with only like 5 minutes remaining, right at the beginning of the 5 on 3. Sucks that Crawford gave up 4 goals in the game, but he's been awesome on the 5on 3, now killed.


How has the team looked otherwise? Obviously the offense has looked good, with 5 goals and all.

What did I miss? I came back from class with about 5 minutes left.

Just back a forth fast moving period, nothing crazy like the Habs-Leaf game.

Sucked losing in the shootout the other night after losing a 2-0 lead. At least we still get a point.

Hawks are 3-1-1 and taking on Carolina tonight.



I finally get them on TV here in Iowa now that we've switched cable providers, but of course, I now am barely around to watch the games.

They have to stop coasting once they get the lead, they have been very complacent in the 3rd period so far this season.
