A trade virgin no "moore"

The surprising news came in a funny way. When I last logged out of FHM the news inbox was empty. When I opened the inbox today the news below appeared!

Bonehead makes the early morning call to the owner, who sleepily approves the deal. Confirmation e-mails to Craig MacTavish and the NHL offices are prepared and sent... Equipment personnel are instructed to clear up Upshall's locker and make it ready for it's new occupant. The players entrance security team is assigned the responsibility to intercept Scottie when he arrives at the arena, since he already left his house this morning. The anticipation builds in Bonehead as his coaches start coming into the "war room".

EDM - 3 TOR - 4 The Oilers used two third period goals by LW Taylor Hall (8.5d/9.5d) to force the game into overtime, but D Cody Franson (6.5b/7.5b) again provided the shootout winner to give the home team two points. ( Note the shootout format again allowed a 7th shot after Franson's goal was scored on the sixth shot.)
COL - 2 WAS - 6 Alex Ovechkin (9.5b/10.0b) had two goals including a PP tally and a three point night, while C Nicklas Backstrom (8.5d/8.5d) added three helpers to give the Capitals their first win of the season.
NYR - 3 STL - 1 Rangers LW Chris Kreider (7.0c/7.5c) had a Gordie Howe hat trick - a goal, an assist, and a fight, (actually two fights) to continue the magical road trip. G Henrik Lundqvist's early season stats are just staggering, 1.20 GAA and a .957 save percentage.
MTL - 6 VAN - 2 The Canadiens bracketed three goals into the first and third periods to overwhelm their opponents tonight. C David Desharnais (7.0d/7.5d) scored and had two assists to lead the Habs scoring.
PHI - 4 DET - 3 The visiting Flyers tied the game early in the third period and then survived OT with RW Wayne Simmonds (8.0c/8.0c) shootout score making the difference at Joe Louis Arena.
BOS - 2 CBL - 1 Bruins RW Jarome Iginla (8.0d/8.0d) had the GWG in the third period and D Zdeno Chara (9.0c/9.0c) scored another first period goal to pull past the tough Blue Jackets squad.
NYI - 4 NAS - 5 The Predators jumped out to a 4 goal lead in the first period and then struggled all game holding off the furious comeback attempt by the Islanders. Nashville's RW Patric Hornqvist (7.5b/7.5b) scored twice and C Mike Fisher (7.5c/7.5c) added three helpers in the win.
OTT - 3 SJS - 1 Newcomer D Jake Gardiner (6.5b/7.5b) scored the insurance goal in the third period leading his team past the frustrated 1 - 4 Sharks squad.
PIT - 3 TBY - 1 RW James Neal (8.0a/8.0a) has scored twice in his last two games, this time successfully leading the Pens past the Bolts.
BUF - 3 CHI - 2 The surging Sabres (5- 1) used two third period loads by LW Marcus Foligno (7.0b/8.0b) and D Jaime McBain (7.0b/7.0b) to get past the previously undefeated Blackhawks (4 -1) at Chicago's United Center Arena.
DAL - 2 MIN - 1 The visiting Stars got the GWG from C Cody Eakin (6.5b/7.5b) in the second period and G Dan Ellis (6.5a/6.5a) made the lead stand up for the teams second win.

In other NHL news;
FLA - The Panthers announced that they completed a trade with the Oilers for the services of RW Ales Hemsky (6.5a/6.5a) for RW Scottie Upshall (6.5a/6.5a). Sports radio stations in Edmonton were celebrating their "steal" of Upshall citing the "million dollar savings" and his recent play. Sunrise area sports talk was much more reserved saying both players were in the last year of their deals and it's too early to judge.
PIT - When C Evgeni Malkin (10.0b/10.0b) did not come out of the locker room for the third period, TV announcers replayed video of his big check and think he may have suffered an upper body injury as he only returned to the ice for two short shifts before the end of the period. No official announcement has been made.
CHI - The Blackhawks not only lost the game, they may have lost RW Marian Hossa (7.5d/7.5d) to an elbow injury. In the postgame interview the Chicago head coach reported that Hossa was still in the trainers room and it didn't look good for his dressing for the next game.
WIN - RW Blake Wheeler (8.0d/8.0d) left practice early and did not return. No report on the severity of any injury and no one was talking after practice either. Players leaving all uttered the same phrase "See the Head Coach" when asked about their teammate.
MIN - LW Zach Parise (8.5d/8.5d) made the surprise announcement after practice that he has a sore left wrist and may be out for a couple games. Team officials seemed surprised and scrambled to respond. The Wild finally issued a press release saying Parise may miss up to two weeks with the wrist injury.

Game 6 vs. Los Angeles Oct 13th
When both defensive coaches are again sitting in the war room as Bonehead enters, "uh-oh" is his first thought... Setting his coffee down on the conference table, he grins at the coaches and says "what's shakin with our bacon?" Coach Tyulin looks at him blankly and Bonehead groans inwardly then quickly offers "what has you guys in here so early?" Coach Tyulin brightens and replies "We have come to a decision... Robak over Gilroy" and emphatically sets his coffee cup down! Bonehead glances at Coach McCabe who winces a little and then adds his agreement to the idea. Both coaches point out that the skills of both players are nearly identical and while overall they would like a better D man, having both players play exactly the same style isn't helping the team. With that, Bonehead asks them if Gilroy should be on the trade list and Coach Tyulin wastes no time agreeing... followed by Coach McCabe.

The opening lines have been set and Coach Ramsay inserts newcomer RW Ales Hemsky on the first line with C Gomez and LW Fleischmann who are the most offensively gifted and he sticks them together to see if there is any chemistry. All four lines are starting the game at equal time (15 mins) and Robak gets his second start on D while the previous set up of the top four getting 25 mins + the bulk of special teams will stay.

Finally the opening faceoff puck is ready to be dropped and... After one period the Panthers are already down 2-0. Shots are nearly equal at 11-10 Panthers and Gomez is given a questionable diving penalty that led to a Kings PP goal. The 1st line is now 20 mins and the third line is down to 10 mins. Defense is reverted to Kulikov/Robak is now 2nd pair and Gubranson/Weaver are back to third pair and all three pairings are at 20 mins. the third pair remain on PP/PK special teams.

The second period is definitely leaning the Panthers way as RW Brad Boyes scores an ES marker and the shot advantage grows for the Panthers to 22-17. Bonehead goes crazy when RW Dan Carcillo (7.0a/7.0a) virtually chases down and runs over LW Jonathan Huberdeau (7.0a/8.0a) to welcome him to the league. Huberdeau wastes no time and drops the gloves with Carcillo, but is clearly not in the same class as the noted pugilist. 1st Line and 4th line are given 20 min shifts and the 2 & 3rd lines have 10 mins each. Defense is same for the third period.

The tightly played third period yields no goals for either team and LA skates away with the victory. Bonehead defends the play of the team in the postgame press conference. There are several questions all coming back to continued offensive troubles, when the exasperated Bonehead interrupts and points out they just scored 7 goals the last game! He further points out that the Kings are considered a top team and they held that high flying offense to just two goals. No further questions occur and Bonehead wraps up the conference.

ARZ - 0 CAR - 3 The Hurricanes get two PP goals in their fifth victory and G Cam Ward (8.0d/8.0d) picks up his fourth victory and first shutout of the season. Ward is hot with a 1.40 GAA and a .960 save percentage.
OTT - 4 ANA - 3 Sixty minutes weren't enough to decide the winner and who else but "Big Game" D Jake Gardiner (6.5b/7.5b) scores the shootout winner for the Senators.
NJD - 3 WPG - 2 Traded players seem to be having an immediate impact on their new teams, and that is true here as two third period goals edged the Devils past the Jets. C Shawn Horcuff (6.5a/6.5a) got the GWG with only 3:24 remaining and G Marty Brodeur (8.0c/8.0c) got his first win of the season turning aside 36 of 38 shots.

In other NHL news;
NJD - D Andy Greene (7.5c/7.5c) left the game against Winnipeg and following the game, coaching staff announced that Greene would be out for two to four weeks with an ankle sprain. A roster move is forthcoming.

Panthers Week 2 Oct
October 7th - 14th 2013

The weekly call to the owner goes well and even though the Panthers record is still a .500 winning percentage, he was happy with the close loss against LA and very happy with the blowout win against the Penguins. I update him on the players being offered as trade bait. and he cautions me that some of the deals should include draft choices to improve the future of the team.

As I hang up I suddenly realize I have not actually seen the owner since the press conference introducing me. Jo reported he stopped in briefly while we were on the road but did not stay long. Hmmm...

Here's the weekly stats;

DET - 2 BOS - 4 Bruins C Patrice Bergeron's (8.5d/8.5d) two point night included a shorthanded tally in the third, restoring the Bruins two goal cushion. G Tukka Rask (9.0d/9.5d) frustrated the Red Wings turning away 40 of 42 shots for his fourth win this season.
EDM - 5 WAS - 6 Capitals RW Alex Ovechkin (9.5b/10.0b) made his hat trick all PP goals and the Cap's LW Martin Erat (7.5c/7.5c) got the GWG with only 3:24 left in the game.
MIN - 2 BUF - 3 An evenly played game went all the way to the shootout before Sabres RW Drew Stafford (7.5c/7.5c) scored on the teams third shootout opportunity, and Wild LW Zach Parise's (8.5d/8.5d) sore wrist probably hurt his chance as the puck rolled off the blade on his attempt.

In other NHL news;
DET - D Kyle Quincey (6.5b/6.5b) got hurt in practice and insiders are saying he suffered a serious arm injury. No particulars are available yet but expect a roster move soon.
VAN - LW Tom Sestito (6.5d/6.5d) was placed on the IR by Canucks management who cited an upper body injury as the reason. There was no timetable for Tom's return and insiders deny any prior knowledge of the injury or when it occurred.

Bruins interested?
A chance phone call to the Boston GM Peter Chiarelli while following up on some prospects from their deep farm system, led to trade talks and possibly a trade. Touting Daniel Paille to me and acknowledging he was the odd man out on the LW in Boston, would I be interested in him? I offered D Gilroy and he laughed, "With what else?" he replied. Scanning my roster I notice that LW Bergenheim is $2.75M and not producing and both players are defensively oriented so surprising me he told me to write it up and send it to him for his consideration.

Game 7 @ Nashville Oct 15th
Due to a late arriving flight in Nashville, the team must do a short practice then get ready for the game. Bonehead jumps into the gameplan as soon as the coaches have the players skating drills set. Defensive coaches want to remain with the top four getting the bulk of the minutes and Bonehead is agreeable. Coach Ramsay also is advising no changes for this game, but cautions everybody that Nashville is a dangerous team even though its not showing up on the scoresheet yet.

15,887 is the announced crowd at Bridgestone Arena and its loud and rocking as the opening faceoff occurs. Predators C David Legwand (7.5b/7.5b) opens the scoring from the near post on a rebound past G Tim Thomas who had no chance. Surprisingly the Panthers answer right back just 10 seconds later when RW Ales Hemsky (6.5a/6.5a) lights the lamp off the feed from Tomas Fleischmann. The first period ends with no more scoring and the Predators leading in shots 12-9.

The second period is pretty even until the Pred's young D Seth Jones (7.0b/8.5b) is called for hooking at the 9:42 mark. Hemsky tallies his second goal of the night on the PP and the Panthers have a slim 2 - 1 lead. Things get testy late in the period when the Predators captain D Shea Weber (9.0b/9.5b) gets called for a major penalty for an illegal check to the head that will be surely reviewed by the league disciplinarians. The PP is productive but also gives up a SH tally before the end of the period. The Panthers have the lead 3 - 2 and have caught up in shots and now lead by a slim margin of 20 - 19 after two periods.

Bonehead makes defensive changes in the 2nd intermission and all three blueline pairs will get equal ES ice time, over Coach Tyulin's obvious displeasure. This turns out to be a good move as the third period plays a much more physical style from the Predators. The first fight breaks out in front of the Panthers net after Pred's C Legwand takes an extra whack at a covered up puck and Colby Robak showed him why that's not a good thing to do. Less than three minutes later Nashville LW Richard Clune (6.0b/6.5b) offers to drop the gloves with Panthers D Eric Gudbranson (7.0a/7.5a) while the coaching staff is screaming for Gudbranson to skate away, Gudbranson ignores them and engages Clune for the second fight of the period. Bonehead is seething and now only has four D for the next two minutes and five D-men for the next five. Fortunately for the Panthers C Shawn Matthias (6.5a/6.5a) finds the back of the net just after the penalties expire and provides the breathing room as the game ends 64 seconds later.

Boneheads post game conference is riddled with questions about the recent acquisition scoring his first two goals in a Panthers uniform. He praises Hemsky but makes sure everyone is aware hockey is a team game and everybody pitched in to make this victory possible. Bonehead heaps praise on the 4th checking line for completely shutting down the Predators 1st line tonight.380288d1422503169-dynasty-florida-panthe380289d1422503169-dynasty-florida-panthe380290d1422503180-dynasty-florida-panthe

MIN - 3 TOR - 4 The Minnesota Wild are quickly gaining a reputation as the "Cardiac Kids" after spotting the Maple Leafs a three goal lead after two periods then storming back to tie it in the third period. The final point went to the home team however, D Cody Franson (6.5b/7.5b) gets the shootout winner for the Leafs. LW Matt Cooke (6.5b/6.5b) led the Wild's comeback with a goal and an assist but was not rewarded with a shootout spot in the lineup.
EDM - 3 PIT - 2 Pittsburgh's PP units went 1 for 8 tonight and probably cost the team the win as a steady stream of Oilers were sent to the sin bin all game long. Oilers LW Ryan Smyth (6.5d/6.5d) had a goal and an assist for the winners and G Jason LaBarbera (6.0b/6.0b) got the win, turning aside 28 of 30 shots.
LAK - 2 TBY - 3 The Kings east coast swing still is suffering after falling short in Tampa Bay. Lightning RW JT Brown scored and had an assist while unheralded Bolts D Radko Gudas (6.5a/7.0a) led the team with a +2 and also got a helper in the contest.
MTL - 3 WPG - 4 The Canadiens finished their Canada cross country tour falling short in Winnipeg. C Mark Scheifele (6.5d/8.0d) was first star of the game with a hat trick and G Al Montoya (6.5d/6.5d) allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the win.
BUF - 0 NYI - 2 The high flying Sabres came into Nassau Co. Veterans Memorial Coliseum looking to continue their early season success, but ran into a brick wall named G Evgeni Nabokov (7.0b/7.0b) who stopped all 35 shots fired at him. The game was knotted up through two periods when C Casey Cizkas (6.5b/7.5b) and C Frans Nielsen (7.5b/7.5b) scored ES markers to give the Isles the win.
CHI - 0 CAR - 2 The Hurricanes have passed another tough test this time handing the favored Chicago Blackhawks a shutout loss. G Cam Ward (8.0b/8.0b) turned aside 34 shots and was easily in control as his defensemen kept the crease clear all night even through 7 power play opportunities. Both teams combined for 11 penalties and two fights.
SJS - 3 STL -1 The hard luck Sharks made a two goal first period stand up and cruised to their second victory this season on strength of G Antti Niemi's (8.0b/8.5b) strong goaltending.
DAL - 1 COL -2 LW Ryan O'Reilly (8.0b/8.5b) and RW P.A. Parenteau (7.5d/7.5d) both scored ES goals and G Semyon Varlamov (8.0c/8.0c) stopped 34 of 35 shots while getting the teams fifth victory in six games.
VAN - 3 PHI - 4 D Luke Schenn (7.0a/7.5a) scored the GWG with just :48 seconds left in regulation. This win was the Flyers third consecutive, this time over the visiting Canucks.
CLB - 1 DET - 5 Both teams traded goals in a tightly contested first two periods. The Red Wings then blew open the game on the strength of four 3rd period ES goals. C Pavel Datsyuk (9.5c/9.5c) netted two goals and three points overall to get the games first star. Wings backup G Jonas Gustavsson (6.5b/6.5b) made 34 saves for his first win of the season.
OTT - 2 ARZ - 8 LW Mikkel Boedker (7.5c/8.0c) scored twice, C Mike Riberio (7.5b/7.5b) added 3 assists and the Yotes got 4 goals in the third period to easily pull away with the win.

In other NHL news;
STL - C Adam Cracknell (6.0/6.5c) left practice early and from witnesses said he seemed to be favoring his back, No report from management yet on any injury or severity at this time.
COL - C Paul Stastny (8.0b/8.0b) was put on his teams injury report with upper body injury, his timetable for return is cloudy with a chance of meatballs...(just checking if your paying ANY attention) :) :D :)

In other NHL news
FLA - in practice today RW Ales Hemsky (6.5a/6.5a) suffered a hand injury and was taken to the trainers room, the head trainer reported after x-rays the team doctor has indicated its likely there is some tendon damage and thinks Hemsky may be out for a significant time period. Hemsky had made a splash in just his second game with the Panthers scoring twice and this injury comes at a perticularly bad time for the Panthers as RW was one of the team's concerns coming into the season.

Game 8 vs. Boston Bruins Oct 17th
The morning skate is subdued with he sudden injury to Hemsky, so Bonehead decides to talk to the team and cut the practice short.

As the head coach Bonehead tells the team his moves to the lineup;
He's calling up LW/RW Joey Crabb (6.0/6.0) from San Antonio and was moving Versteeg to first line RW from 3rd line LW. Jesse Winchester was inserted into the 3rd line spot for his efforts this season. C Nick Bjugstad is moved to 1st line C and Scott Gomez drops to 2nd line C. RW is also flopped with Brad Boyes going to 3rd line and 3rd PK forward with Jesse Winchester as C. Billy Butler was now 2nd line RW for this trial period.

The dressing room is relaxed before the game and a lot of ribbing is going on surprising Bonehead. Coach Pauwelyn says he thinks the team chemistry is going to be fine and we should be competitive with Boston tonight. Coach Ramsay is somewhat doubtful that C Bjugstad is ready for +20 minutes ice time as first line C, but he will monitor his play and report to Bonehead. Coach Tyulin reports the pairings is as usual 25/25/10 and Kulikov/Robak are limited 3rd pair.(no PK/PP time).

The first period is played and the score is tied at 1 - 1 and the shots are equal at 10. C Nick Bjugstad (7.0a/8.0a) has the first goal of the game on the PP, pleasing everybody, and its LW Milan Lucic (8.0c/8.0c)getting the game tying goal later in the period.

The second period sees an early PP goal from RW Bobby Butler on a redirect of a Brian Campbell slapshot. Again its just past mid period when C David Krejci scores from the slot on the rebound of a LW Milan Lucic induced scrum to the side of the net. The shots are 18 - 17 Bruins and Bonehead feels the game is slipping away... So he tells Coaches Tyulin and McCabe to go 20/20/20 defense and put Kulikov/Robak on 2nd pair and on the 2nd PP.
The third period immediately proves Bonehead wrong as Kulikov stops skating and pulls down the Bruin forward deep in the Panthers zone with a hook right in front of the referee. It only takes Boston 8 seconds to ram home a Iginla power play tally to take the lead 3 - 2. Coach Tyulin stares at Bonehead but Bonehead won't acknowledge him and encourages the lines to skate hard and get open. This works as RW Brad Boyes also brings home the bacon 2 minutes later on an even strength marker. The game is slightly leaning the Panthers way but still tied at 3 when Coach Ramsay taps the checking line to go out against the Bruins top line with just over two minutes to play. D Kulikov redeems himself by stripping RW Iginla of the puck along the boards and passing to his defensive partner Robak. Robak's pass is tape measure to LW Sean Bergenheim and a 3 on 2 develops as the Panthers defensive pair skates to the bench for a change. Marcel Goc SCORES!!! 1:42 left in the game and the arena is rockin!!! The Panthers successfully kill off the clock and gladly take the win as the Bruins look shocked.

The postgame interview is short and Bonehead does some boasting of his own. "2 PP goals, a win against a playoff caliber team, and players embraced the new roles and produced, what more could the press want???" of course the questions fly about why aren't the Panthers actively going after a replacement RW???, Does Bonehead really think Versteeg had a good game tonight??? Bonehead points out Hemsky had to play two games before he got his goals for the Panthers, and Versteeg is a professional hockey player who will rise to the occasion. Bonehead says he is not ruling out looking for help, but with his current squad playing this well it's not a pressing need at the moment. The press conference breaks up after the players comments are solicited.

LAK - 4 NAS - 3 The Kings LW Tyler Taffoli (6.5c/7.5c) scored twice on the PP, but it took LW Kyle Clifford's (6.5b/7.0b) amazing backhander over the goalies sprawling shoulder to give the Kings the shootout win.
CAR - 2 TOR - 3 Toronto finally put a stop to the Carolina win streak in a hard fought game. C Nokolai Kulemin (6.5c/7.0c) scored the game winner in the third period after a literally impossible PP goal from the Hurricanes D Tim Gleason (7.5b/7.5b) at the 20:00 start of the third period tied the game. Toronto's LW James Van Riemsdyk (8.0d/8.5d) had a goal and an assist in the game also.
CLB - 4 MTL - 2 Columbus rode C Artem Anisimov's (7.5b/7.5b) 2G/1A performance to a victory over the Habs at the Bell Centre.
SJS - 3 DAL - 5 The visiting Sharks could not get the win and trailed throughout the game after giving up 3 goals in the first period. First star D Sergei Gonchar (6.5a/6.5a) paced the Stars with a two assist evening and outstanding defensive play.
EDM - 6 NYI - 2 The visiting Oilers just poured more misery on the early season struggles of the Isles. Oilers D Nick Schultz (7.0d/7.0d) scored and had two helpers and First Star LW Mark Arcobello (6.0d/6.5d) scored and had an assist while the Isles provided no help to their goalie allowing 45 shots.
NJD - 4 OTT - 5 First Star C Kyle Turris (8.0c/8.0c) dominated G Marty Brodeur (8.0c/8.0c) and the Devils tonight with a 2G/3A 5 point night. The Devils who once led 3 - 1 and actually tied the game in the third period before the Sen's RW Bobby Ryan's (8.0d/8.0d) deflection got past Brodeur with 7:24 left in the third and would stand as the game winner.
STL - 6 CHI - 5 The visiting Blues used RW Chris Stewart's (7.5a/7.5a) two goals and assist to run out to a 6 - 2 lead then hung on in a furious third period rally by the Blackhawks who wasted a fine two goal performance by LW Patrick Sharp (8.5b/8.5b) in the loss. A two hander across LW Brandon Bollig's (6.5b/6.5b) head by RW TJ Oshie (8.0a/8.0a) in the third period caused Oshie to get a 5 min penalty and the ire of the United Center fans. Bolling recovered and stayed in the game.
DET - 1 COL -3 Three first period goals including two ES goals by Matt Duchene (8.0d/8.5d) was more than the visiting Red Wings could handle. Av's G Semyon Varlamov (8.0c/8.0c) faced only 22 shots and got his league leading sixth win of the season.

In other NHL news;
NJD - Not only did the Devils lose the game, LW & Captain Patrik Elias (8.0d/8.0d) left the game and insider reports are saying he has a shoulder injury. Official reports are identifying an "upper body injury" with no timetable for return at this point.
CHI - a mystery was solved as C & Captain Jonathan Toews (9.5d/9.5d) skated in the pregame but did not dress or play in tonight's game. Toews has been diagnosed with a quad injury and his return to the lineup is estimated to be a month or more.
STL - also injured in the game in Chicago tonight LW Brendan Morrow (7.5b/7.5b) was holding his right glove against his body after an uncalled slash by Chicago late in the second period. Morrow is expected to return to St. Louis for x-rays and his timetable for return is uncertain.
PIT - A surprise trade has caught everyone flatfooted, D Brooks Orpik (7.0c/7.0c) a stalwart longtime Penguin blueliner is going to the Chicago Blackhawks for a seventh round pick in this years upcoming draft. Pittsburgh talk radio pundits are stunned and are calling GM Shero's move "A horrible trade" and "a pure salary dump".

can you post the standings?

Sure - in Post #67 I posted the .jpg of the weekly home screen which has the Conference standings (top left corner)  I will be posting that weekly - The question is do you want a particular Division or Conference to be posted? I'll post the four Divisions as of today and will try to remember to get a .jpg of the standings when I do the Monday updates.

Boston says NO!
Again the news inbox was empty The actual date I'm running is Oct 19th, when I closed the game down and posted the 18th's scores and news. When I opened the game up today... There is message from Boston declining the Daniel Paille trade which is fine, but WHY is it not appearing when I look up the inbox and see the inury to Krug? This is the second time I've had this happen, Maybe it's emulating snail mail in the game?

Anyway it says close but no cigar... I do not intend to up the ante for Paille at this point with the team playing well.

Game #9 vs. Minn. Wild Oct 19
A bright sunny Florida day has dawned as Bonehead Moore pulls into the BB & T Center parking lot and enters the building. Inside there is quiet, only a few staff members gathering supplies and foodstuffs for tonight's game and electric floor jacks are rumbling by with their wares.

Several "Good morning Coach" salutations are offered to Bonehead by those walking or riding by he realizes he has no idea who all these people that make the game tonight possible are, but knows that the workers here deserve more recognition than he is receiving right now. He vows to make some time soon to get to know some of the workers...

Other than a verbal warning to the Defensive coaches for leaving the War Room a mess last night, He spells out the game plan they agreed on... Minnesota is a line-rolling team with some good defensive players and a two way system. He warns the coaches to stay on the offensive because the Wild are hard to beat once they are ahead, and have proven adept at getting points off OT and shootouts.

The day finally winds down and the puck is ready to be dropped. The Wild and Panthers are pretty even through the first period but a late flurry of activity by the Wild sees them pick up an ES goal and the Panthers enter the locker room down in shots 12 - 8, and down in the score 1 - 0.

The coaches are doing an excellent job keeping our lines attacking and moving in the offensive zone in the second period. Quickly we surge ahead in SOG but still cannot figure out the Wild's G Gustafsson who is making some incredible saves. The score remains 1 - 0, but the shots are now 21 - 18 in favor of the Panthers.

The third period starts badly for the Panthers as ES goals by LW Zach Parise (8.5c/8.5c) and C Mikael Granlund (7.5a/8.0a) have the home team looking at the wrong end of a 3 - 0 score. Minnesota adapts to our style and quickly the SOG are evened out. A late PP goal by RW Kris Versteeg breaks Gustafsson's shutout bid, but the Panthers can't score again and the final buzzer sounds on a 3 - 1 loss.

Surprisingly G Gustafsson (6.0c/7.0c) is only the Third Star of the game, Bonehead thinks the press core wasn't watching the same game as him tonight. The coaching staff will be spending a late night in the "War Room" trying to figure this one out tonight.

Sorry for the delay - A nasty little "bug" laid me down and out for the past couple days and made me feel like the proverbial truck hit me, followed by the next two cars! But I'm back and the Panthers season continues..
