Yes, a little reworking of the classic song title, but it seems appropos considering the weather, eh? And what's funny is the first player I'm talking about wasn't even born anytime near when that song came out.
Talked with Fabian Brunnstrom about his start tonight; I joked with him that he should be smiling and giddy instead of sporting the same stoic face as when we found out he wasn't starting last week. On cue, he broke into the "woo-hoo, I'm starting" smile.
Jere Lehtinen skated with the boys today. I asked him to give a percentage of how close he was (85? 90? 95?), but all he would say is he's getting closer. Obviously he's out for this evening. He'll see how he feels as the day wears on before deciding if he'll go to St. Louis for tomorrow night's game against the Blues.
Steve Ott and Philippe Boucher were back on the ice this morning. Got somewhat vague We'll see's regarding his and Steve Ott's status; but they both looked fine so I'm figuring they'll play. Otherwise, kids, just dodge the raindrops for the afternoon. Actually, I'm kind of enjoying this. I have packing to do for a move in about a week, so this forces me to do it!
