The Tampa Bay Lightning have recalled forward Mathieu Darche and defenseman Dan Jancevski. So much for Norfolk making their move this week.
While not happy from a Norfolk point of view, this is life in minor league hockey. You are there for your parent club. But I hope to see Darche and Jancevski get some ice time. If they are simply brought down to sit in the pressbox and make popcorn, then I have some issues.
If they are just going to sit, they could be in Norfolk helping us and staying game sharp.
According to EE's blog, Ranger is out with a sore shoulder and Ward will be a healthy scratch.
Thank you for letting me know that. That addresses my concerns regarding this. I hope they play well and kick some Ranger butt.
Ward? Why not sit a guy like Tarnasky who has done ZERO in 20 games...
Because Ward didn't get the puck in deep in OT against Atlanta.
