The team will head up to Detroit in about two hours... ah, another visit to the building that time and a good disinfectant forgot. But it's fabulous to watch a game there, so it's worth it.
Now the updates:
Mark Parrish did not practice today. Dave Tippett said he was out with the flu, and he was supposed to play last night against the Thrashers. Tippett was going to check how Parrish was feeling before figuring out if he went on the trip to Detroit/Columbus. My guess is he won't. Seriously, a hockey team trying to stay healthy at a critical point of the season, do you want a semi-sick guy on the plane?
Fabian Brunnstrom will play with the Manitoba Moose against Rockford on Friday and Saturday night, then head back to Columbus.
