Update: Teams Remaining Split for Preseason


Well, I take back my projected lines from earlier today

According to AZ Central, the team that played in Los Angeles last night will be the same team that plays in Anaheim tonight. The team we saw in Glendale, conversely, is headed to Sylvan Lake for the nationally televised game against the Calgary Flames.

Personally, I’m pouting about this for a number of reasons.

  • First, I wanted to see Brendan Burke and John Gibson on the ice at the same time, and this dashes those hopes. It also means that, while I won’t get to see whether or not Mike Smith is up for a back-to-back game campaign, I get to see Devan Dubnyk‘s endurance tested. Hooray?

    I’m also somewhat greedy. I wanted to see Max Domi and Henrik Samuelsson playing center and LW respectively against one of the league’s fiercest teams, and I wanted to see Sam Gagner against Anaheim, and ugh whatever.

    At the same time, though, I’m excited to see Domi and Samuelsson on an actual television screen, and not in a grainy resolution on my laptop. So I’d like to see them play in Alberta.

    Do you see my problem?

    Hopefully, at least tonight will be good for fans who want to see how Keith Yandle and whoever they pair him with are able to withstand the offensive force of a team that’s almost undoubtedly going to make the playoffs.

    Be sure to catch our live tweets, and we’ll have an update on tonight’s game up for you as soon as it’s over!

    *UPDATE: Brendan Perlini and Mark Visentin still seem to be out, no word on how they’re doing. Brandon McMillan is out, but looking to skate by tomorrow, as is Brandon Gormley. Both are out for lower body/back issues.
