We still won't know what to expect from each team in this league as rosters continue to be worked as new players become available. The Canucks had a 3rd goaltender at practise this week but I don't expect him to crack the line-up. I guess we'll see tonight.
It's game day and there is much to be done. Good news is our new broadcast equipment arrived late yesterday and we WILL be on the air tonight with the broadcast. I promise. Pre-game show at 7:45pm and puck drops at 8:00pm on 94.5fm (Chetwynd) 104.9fm (Dawson Creek) and http://www.peacefm.ca/ (everyone else).
More of a preview later in the day.
