On the Beat: Kessel still out and Avery gets reputation call
What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:
- No Phil Kessel (undisclosed) for the Bruins tonight. He is expected back next week.
- Mike Keenan was not in a good mood after last night’s loss. Flames fans need to relax. This team isn’t “tanking,” if anything, they are playing a lot better defensively.
- Who will man the net for the Stars versus the Kings? Heika raises a good point. The Stars are done, so why not dress some youngsters.
- Was last night’s penalty on Sean Avery a reputation call? Well, when you are Avery and continually do things to attract attention to yourself, you are going to have to deal with the odd reputation call.
- Mike Green back on the ice at practice after missing yesterday with the flu. The Caps lines are in that post as well.
