Mighty fine victory over Atlanta Wednesday evening, though in all honesty I didn't personally catch a whole lot of it. That's what filling in for two people at work does to a recreational schedule. Heading back to Port St. Lucie and spots north once more, so we'll hit the Caterwaul autopilot and see what plays out through the day.
Of course, the Big Story for tonight is the regular season reunion, of sorts, for Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell (haven't heard much of his name recently) against their longtime former organization. Should there be a buzz in the air, or is this much ado about nothing?
Boston's Horton is on track for a killer season with 15 points (8 goals) in sixteen games, and that +8 would tie for the Florida lead. We've already accepted those numbers likely weren't in the cards had he remained with Florida, though Dennis Wideman's recovered a bit of that lost offense with 10 points (2 ppg) of his own. From the blueline.
Defenseman Jason Garrison made a solid return from a groin strain with a +2 against the Thrashers. Still, Keaton Ellerby provided more than a simple band-aid in Garrison's absence; looking forward to what he brings on the next trip up.
