Someone goes on a rampage, guess who’s replacing Payne in St. Louis, and will Sid play sooooooooooooon?
– Panthers send Markstrom back to AHL’s Rampage
The Florida Panthers have sent Jacob Markstrom down to the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage with veteran Scott Clemensen returning to the lineup. There is no doubt the move is so the young netminder can continue see playing time.
– Ken Hitchcock returns to the bench
If you had Davis Payne in your NHL coaching survival pool, well, you’re out. As last reported by What the Hell is Icing (can we really call anything we do here “reporting”?) he was fired yesterday by the Blues. Ken Hitchcock who led the Stars to the cup in 1999 (FYI never bring this fact up in Buffalo) and lost to NJ in 2000 will coach the team the rest of this season. He also received a contract for next year as well.
– Sid the Kid may return Friday….or not
Sidney Crosby joined his teammates on their trip out west last weekend and has said he might return to live action on Friday against Dallas. So it sounds like he is inching his way back to the ice after spending the last month practicing with the team.
