Raf & Big Rig Back in Action

Thanks for a solid game, back to GR with you!  George Sipple is reporting that Rafalski and Ericsson are going to be playing tomorrow night against the San Jose Sharks.

Big Rig was admittedly, a little out of gas once practice was over with.  Both he and Raf had missed last night's game due to flu-like symptoms.  Most likely caught from those pesky Edmonton Oilers and basically the entire province of Alberta.  Did you guys hear about the Flames line-jumping to get vaccinated?

The air tank was pretty low.  Hard to breathe out there. Felt a little bit better at the end of the practice.” --Johnny Ericsson

Rafalski sitting out sound much more like a precautionary measure more than anything.  Here's what he had to say:

“Just had to sleep a lot.  I didn’t get too feverish or anything. Little bit of a sore throat and cough. It’s coming around.”

So for all of you that fell in love with seeing #37 out there again, I'm sorry.

    I gotta admit, it was weird seeing that #37 out there NOT whistling shots past our other forwards at chin-height. I still think he should get a longer look. At his salary, it's a wash as far as roster spots between he and Lebda, who I will also admit wasn't too terrible last night. I liked Janik's game, simple and safe, just like a good stay-at-home defenseman should play.

  3. Chris' (or Kris') are taking over the world.
