Playoff Taxi Squad, Rumble and Andreychuk

The St. Pete Times is reporting that the Lightning have summoned several of its players from Springfield to join the club as its taxi squad for the playoffs. [url=nick-tarnasky]Nick Tarnasky[/url], [url=darren-reid]Darren Reid[/url], Norm Milley, Jason Jaspers, Zdenek Blatny, [url=marek-kvapil]Marek Kvapil[/url], Mitch Fritz, [url=doug-obrien]Doug O'Brien[/url] and [url=gerald-coleman]Gerald Coleman[/url] will practice in parallel with the team as the playoffs go forward. In the article, Tom Jones also states that Darren Rumble will stay in Springfield as an assistant next season but that he is not a candidate for head coach. In addition, GM Jay Feaster sinks the sentimental idea of Dave Andreychuk becoming Falcons head coach because the team is looking for an experienced bench boss and because Andreychuk simply has no interest in coaching. If the Lightning are looking to promote from within, that points to only two people: Bill Barber (unlikely) or Johnstown head man Frank Anzalone.
