According to Heika’s blog, Ribeiro had some x-rays done on his elbow today. I’m guessing this is from the Tootoo hit in the game. He did leave the ice for a few minutes, but he came back and seemed to be okay. Tippett said that it was just precautionary, but the Stars have already called up Toby Petersen in case Ribeiro can’t play. Looks like he’s having a pretty good season for Iowa (21 goals and 30 assists) so hopefully he can be a help if Ribeiro can’t go.
If Ribeiro doesn’t go on Wednesday, what do you do with the lines? Just slide Petersen in on the top line with Eriksson and Brenden, or try Richards on the top line?
Whatever happens, I hope Ribsy gets well really soon. He’s one guy we can’t afford to lose for the playoffs.
All I can about the 3 games tonight… GO HABS AND SENS!
Ovechkin just scored his 50th goal tonight against the Bruins on a beautiful breakaway. I think it’s possible he’ll get to 60 if he can get out of this goal drought he’s in right now. Well, he now has a hat trick, so I guess the quest for 60 goals this season is still healthy.
My Canadian teams disappointed me tonight. The Sens lost to the Ducks, and it looks like the Habs are gonna lose unless they can score the tying goal in the next few minutes. It would have been nice to not let those two teams each get 2 points tonight. Guy Carbonneau, you disappoint me tonight.
