What team beat-writers are saying this afternoon:
- The Blue Jackets have sent Nikita Filatov back to the AHL. This team is young enough up front, that it wouldn’t hurt to get Filatov some AHL seasoning.
- Here are the Devils’ lines from practice today. Looks like Langenbrunner will miss tomorrow’s game.
- The Panthers have signed Jassen Cullimore to a contract. With all their defensive injuries–Cory Murphy, Bryan McCabe and Bryan Allen–the Panthers had to do something.
- The Habs will scratch Georges Laraque, Steve Begin and Patrice Brisebois for tonight’s game. Man they have a lot of depth.
- Here is how the Capitals lined up at practice today. Obviously the team will miss Ovechkin but they still don’t lack goal-scoring.
